A little bit about me - I have always had a creative flair for media. After completing my college course, I have been freelancing for some small local companies in order to gain experience.

My current qualifications include a National Diploma in Photography and Media, resulting in a distinction and two merits.

Being creative has always come naturally to me and I am excited to be in a position to further develop my talent in media and marketing. As an apprentice at Swimming Hippo I will be studying to gain an NVQ in Marketing. In addition to completing the NVQ, I will be assisting in SEO tasks including article writing, directory submissions, and updating social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The new Nick Bevan site is now live!

After weeks of work the new and improved Nick Bevan website has now been launched.

When identifying the requirements of Nick Bevan for this development, it was clear that they wanted to be able make alterations to the site themselves via a content management system. Another request made by the consultancy was to include more case studies of their previous work; this would allow potential clients to read about projects, perhaps similar to there own and consider the approach and results Nick Bevan delivered.

We asked Nick Bevan to give us an honest opinion of the work carried out:

"Joe and his team have been first class in helping us to achieve a fresh and vibrant website that we believe balances both technical and marketing needs perfectly. The team encouraged us to work outside our comfort zone to exploit fully the opportunities of web based marketing, with great results."
