About Me

Hi there, I'm Fabrizio Van Marciano. Thank you for taking the time to check out my about page.

So, where do I begin?

The short of it all is: I'm a freelance web designer, front-end developer, fun-loving proud father of two amazing kids, and a devoted husband!

I currently live and work in North Devon, England, the UK, however, my client base is worldwide.

A true family guy!

When I'm not designing websites, I'm spending quality time with my beautiful family. Our #10yearchallenge is to buy a house in the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria) and migrate there, and, of course, I hope to continue my work as a freelance web designer and solopreneur.

How it all began

I started my online journey far back in 2006, not as a web designer, but as an artist selling original paintings online.

As a struggling artist, one of the things that frustrated me the most was the lack of tools or resources available for creating a simple website or online gallery.

You see, the world wide web was a lot different back in 2006, I can tell you. DIY website builder tools were not in abundance back then.

I decided to invest all of my spare time learning how to build a website for myself, through various online courses, videos, and books.

As the story goes, six years later, I ended up becoming a certified full-time freelance web designer and developer. Oh, and yes, I'm still an artist, because I love to paint. In fact, you can see some of my work here.

The most useful app I have on my Mac is something called Quiver. The best place to save an entire library of #code snippets which I can use on future projects. Saves a huge amount of time. ...

And like the road not taken, it was the f*cks not given that made all the difference! My favorite quote from Mark Manson’s book the Ultimate Art Of Not Giving A F*ck. . Stop giving a f&*k about other people’s opinions and doubts about you, and focus on the sh*t you do best! ...

Getting that work life balance just right is tough during the school summer break when you work from home, especially when you have a passion that often takes you away from being there with your family and friends. . I don’t feel guilty or I don’t feel as if I’m missing out, family dynamics vary. So when I am able to spend time with my family, i make sure it’s always quality time. . #summertime #solopreneurlife #freelancelife #coastalwalks #familytime #worklifebalance #webdesigner #appledore #northdevon #motivation #webdev #ownboss #no9to5 #futureproofyourbusiness ...

Plenty of inspiration to use in and around the #northdevon area and part of the South West #coastalpath . Certainly a change from the regular coffee cups and laptop photos you’re used to. ...

Designing beautiful, bespoke, WordPress websites since 2014

Over the last 5 years, I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a freelance web designer serving clients from all over the globe.

I've helped many startups, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses increase brand awareness and broaden their reach online through smart, conversion-focused web design that works.

As I work solely with WordPress, I have many years of experience and broad technical knowledge of this CMS platform, including the use of a variety of design and development tools, themes, and plugins.

If you are familiar with any of the following tools yourself, I have worked with Genesis Theme Framework, Thrive Architect and Thrive Themes, Elementor, and Divi. These days, however, the main tool that I use in all my web design projects is Oxygen Builder.

Passionate about website design

I am a HubSpot Academy Certified Growth-Driven Designer and fully Certified Front-End Developer with extensive knowledge and experience in using HTML markup, CSS, Sass, (Flexbox, Grid, Animations) some PHP, and little JavaScript programming languages.

This might really sound like a cliche, but I'm extremely passionate about website design. Not just web design that looks great, but web design that actually works. 

Web design that works: Conversion focused design to help you convert visitors into leads, and paying customers.

I know how much your business and your customers mean to you because I'm a small business owner myself.

I don't, for one single moment, want you to waste your time, money, and energy investing in web design that's not going to help you grow your business.

I believe that just because a design looks great, it doesn't necessarily mean it will work or turn your visitors into raving fans or paying customers.

Which is why I stand by and implement the growth-driven design methodology into my web design services. I believe I can help you achieve the growth and success your business deserves, so let's work together to design a website that delights, educates, inspires your users to take action and do business with you.

I'm active and social

You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram, and I also have a YouTube channel with a growing audience where I love to share practical website building tips, tutorials, as well as a bi-monthly vlog. (See the social links in the footer section).
