My name is Lee Johnson and I create outstanding websites and compelling marketing.
A little bit of history…
When the internet first became widely available, I begged my parents for a dial-up modem. I still get a thrill from hearing the connecting sound.
I taught myself web design by creating websites for myself and friends. The internet progressed and I continued my hobby as it’s fun and challenging. I got into WordPress and learnt how I could do more and better.
Some of my father’s clients wanted websites which I designed and developed in my spare time. They asked me to write the content for most of the sites and I re-discovered my love of writing.
I was putting more and more of myself into my hobby. One day my father asked why I wasn’t working for myself. It was the obvious next step and I clearly loved the work. The next day I started to design my own business website calling myself Rune Web Design. But the name didn’t quite fit. Within six months I changed the name to DesignWrite which fits perfectly with what I do – I design and write.
Learning by experience
I am self-taught in everything I do which I believe gives me an advantage over those who formally studied web design and marketing at college. I don’t have any pre-conceived ideas or rigid academic processes; I have learnt by hands-on experience.
My design ideas come partly from my clients who tell me what they want and my own original ideas. We discuss what will work and proceed from there. With every project I learn something new. Every client is different with individual ideas and expectations. The challenge is creating something that works.
I am personally invested in every project. I want each project to be better than my last. I am a perfectionist and I am not happy until the design is sound and the result works.
