Hi and welcome to my site.
I love designing and making colourful, creative and unique websites.
I realised from a young age that I wanted a career that involved utilising my creative flair. After school I started my career in architecture but soon I was finding my creative aspirations was not being fulfilled. I seized an opportunity to change my career path and I entered the world of web design, where I discovered it was possible to combine creativity with markup languages - a concept that allowed me to express my artistic flair alongside the stimulating and challenging aspects of writing code.
Throughout my architecture career, my design philosophy was about detail and simplicity. I like clean and crisp designs. It is my intention to carry this attitude in my web design career.
My aim is to learn as much as I can about web design and development and keep in touch with the latest changes and trends
in the industry; I'm always online learning new skills, trying out new techniques to improve my abilities as a web designer and
keeping myself up to date with the latest trends. I would love to leann "everything there is to know" about web design, but let's be brutally honest, that is a heavy burden and frankly, too much for one person to know!
We live in a world where design changes constantly and fresh ideas are always in demand. Professionals in every field of design have to be aware of these changes and possess the flexibility and imagination, to stay ahead of the trends. The web conitnues to grow and become part of everyone's lives, everyone has a website, but not everyone has the impact they want.
My website design philosophy is keep it simple, make the important things standout using subtlety and fine detailing.
I am currently setting up my own business, Minternet Web Design, which I intend to start in the 1st half of next year . I am also currently re-designing this portfolio website, with the aim of having this live in the New Year (around January/February, hopefully). With my new michaelmunro portfolio website I will be introducing a blog, where I will write about my influences, inspiration and my journey in setting up and growing my business, Minternet Web Design.
