Hi... my name is Nick Young. I'm a freelance web developer
I hope you're looking for some help with a web project...otherwise I guess I need to have a word with my good friend Google. If you're looking for someone to setup a website, and you've got no idea where to start, I'm your guy. If you're looking for that finishing touch, a graphic, a logo, or just some random individual element for your site, I can do that too. If you're wondering how you can get your own customized email addresses, so you don't have to use a personal account to conduct business, then I can let you in on a little secret: it's super easy, if you know what to look for, and I'll help you set up exactly what you need.
Most (if not all) of my projects come from referrals, and I like it that way. If someone I work with will recommend me to their friend, then I think I've done a good job.
I hate high-pressure sales tactics, and developers who take advantage of people who don't know what they really need. I'll work with you to provide exactly what you need. Nothing more. Nothing less. And if our project works out correctly, you'll probably never need to call me again. I'll provide you with all the tools so you can maintain your website after the project is over. I have a life outside of web development, so I'd like to avoid getting those urgent emails asking me to add some new text to your homepage (but if you want me to do that, I guess we can chat about that too)...
There's no possible way to list all the different types of services I can provide, so I'm not going to try. What I can do is give you an idea of the things that people most often ask me to help them with.
- Website or Web Application Design & Development
- Content Management System installation & configuration (Wordpress, Drupal etc)
- Theme/template design for HTML sites or CMS-based sites
- E-Commerce / Online payment solutions
- Setting up custom domain names & email addresses
- Graphic design (logos and other graphics for your website)
- Print Publications (brochures, posters, flyers, magazines, booklets)
- Digital Photography
In a former life I was also a system administrator for networks, servers and whatnot...so I've been known to help people set those up too...it's just not my favorite thing to do.
I also working with Zend Framework, which I really like....but I'm just an amateur at the moment.
The Concept Locker Mission...
To provide personal service and assistance for people who need help with their online presence.
That was a little generic....how about this.
Tell me what you'd like to achieve, and I'll tell you if I can help. If I can't, then I'll point you in the right direction.
Contact Me...Nick Young
sorry...i only give that out after I know who you are...you understand.
You can find me hanging in the #drupal-nc & #drupal-edu rooms on irc.freenode.net. I'm "usaussie."
