What is it...?
A domain name allows people to easily find your website, it's kind of like a phone number but instead of typing a number into your browser you use a domain name. For example you got to this website by using our domain name www.ajfwebdesign.com
Your website is made up of files and folders, they need to be hosted on a computer server somewhere in the world so that the public can view your website. If you think of hosting in the same way as telephone line rental, it can be paid for on a monthly or yearly basis, but it is an essential part of having a website.
Social media has exploded in the last decade with the introduction of websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Social media is allows you, as a person or representing a business, to interact with people and businesses from all over the world.
Nowadays smart phones and tablets are so widely used that you want your website to work on mobile devices as well as on regular desktop computers and laptops. A responsive layout basically resizes the website so that it appears in an aestically pleasing way no matter what device the user is viewing it on.

I have always had a love for art and design as far back as I can remember whether it was drawing with pencil and paper or designing and printing posters and flyers using graphics software. I first realized the possibilities of image manipulation using graphic software after my weeks work experience at Moray Instruments and Computers in Elgin where my Dad worked. I was shown a digital camera and how you could change different elements of that image using photoshop style software by a programmer called Les Benzies who also showed me how to program an image slideshow. This might not seem that big of a deal or very impressive but that was back in 1992 and I was really impressed with what I had seen.
AJF Web Design was founded on the 16th of June 2011 by me, Andrew French, a freelance web designer and developer who had been working with other designers and developers in the Moray area on a wide variety of projects including static and brochure style sites, blogging platforms, full CMS managed sites and online, eCommerce shops.
I have been lucky enough to work on some great projects for both local businesses such as SCOTGRIT, Horizon Blind & Shutters and The Dee String Quartet of Aberdeen to national companies including Embassy OFD ltd, Friends Life and even the NHS.
