Our Lead Designer, Chris, has just celebrated nine years at Eyeweb!
Chris started with us as a Junior Web Designer in 2014 and advanced to Lead Designer. He has worked on almost every web design task that has come through our doors in that time. Let’s hear Chris’s thoughts on the last nine years.
What are the biggest differences in your job role now compared to when you started?
From coming in as a Junior Designer to becoming the Lead Designer, I’d say the biggest differences are having more confidence, taking initiative, and being better able to develop customer relationships, to fully understand the client’s needs and goals in a project.
It is important for me to stay up to date with new industry technology and the latest design techniques. As well as using the most current software, I am also constantly developing my skills and techniques to ensure that I am producing the best work possible for our clients.
What is your favourite part of your job?
I would say unveiling a product that a customer loves. It feels great when you hit the nail on its head with a project.
Are there any past projects that you are particularly proud of?
I‘ve worked on many projects, almost every one that has come through Eyeweb over the last nine years.
Early in my career, I would say working on web design and branding for Kyle Edmund and Luke Campbell was really exciting to sink my teeth into.
More recently, I’ve worked on massive e-commerce sites and collaborated with our marketing team to align our agendas, pushing Eyeweb to bigger heights.
