Hi there, I'm Fabrizio Van Marciano. Thank you for taking the time to check out my about page.
OK, so where do I begin?
The short of it is that I'm a freelance web designer, front-end developer, proud dad of two amazing kids, and a devoted husband!
I currently live and work in North Devon, England UK. My #10yearchallenge and #dream is to make enough money to retire in the Canary Islands with my family.
So, I started my online journey 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 and 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.
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 full-time freelance web designer and developer. Oh, and yes, I'm still an artist as I love to paint. In fact, you can see some of my work here.
Over the last 7 years, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with individuals and small business owners from around the globe. I've helped entrepreneurs and companies increase brand awareness and broaden their reach online through smart, conversion-focused web design that works.
As I work primarily with WordPress, I have many years of experience and broad technical knowledge of this CMS platform, including using a variety of design and development tools, themes, and plugins - If you are familiar with any of these tools yourself, I have worked with Genesis Theme Framework, Thrive Architect and Themes, and Oxygen Website Builder.
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.
I know how much your business and your customers mean to you. And in all seriousness, I don't want you to waste your time, money, and energy in web design that's not going to help you move your business forward and upwards.
Just because the design you really want looks great, it doesn't mean it will work and turn your visitors into paying customers. Which is why I stand by and implement the growth-driven design strategy in my web design services, to help you and your business achieve the growth and success you deserve. You can learn more here.
