Volatyle Flash Web Design

Owner

I created and ran my own small business; Volatyle Flash Web Design from 2005 to 2010, during which time I worked on hundreds of web and print projects from a wide variety of clients ranging from small start up companies and sole traders, to well known worldwide companies. Volatyle has constantly gone from strength to strength, almost solely on word of mouth and SEO results rather than paid advertising, having maintained results in the top 5 for our chosen keywords in Google for most of that time.

After years of working in the web design and graphics industry, I have built up close working relationships with several tried and tested programmers, developers, graphic designers and artists; allowing us to offer our clients an extensive range of services and take our website designs to an exceptional level. By providing all of these world class services under one roof, we can provide you with professional quality work for very affordable prices.
