Chris celebrates nine years at Eyeweb

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.

Are there any projects coming up that you are particularly excited to work on?

I will be working on some big internal systems, which I’m looking forward to. This is something that everyday web users don’t get to see.

There’s always something new keeping me busy at Eyeweb, and we’re always looking for new clients to work on projects with, too.

You’ve worked at Eyeweb for nine years now. What about this company has made you stay here for that time?

Eyeweb is good, honest work with a company that believes in you.

It is a small business, so staff feel like part of a team here. We are treated as individuals rather than a production line, and there is a lot of trust in everyone.

What is the best part of working at Eyeweb for nine years?

It’s really interesting to sit back and look at how Eyeweb has evolved since 2014.

I remember working in an office above a hairdresser's, and now we have an office on the Humber.

We’ve also expanded as a company, offering not only web design but also marketing.

What do you do when you’re outside the office?

Outside Eyeweb, I am a content creator, streaming and creating video game content on YouTube and Twitch. This is a fun and creative outlet that continues to build my assets and skills.

I’m also a dad of two boys who keep me busy, whether it's cinema trips or game nights.

Chris said: “I would like to give a massive thank you to all the clients I've worked with during my time at Eyeweb. Here’s to many more years!”
