...ABOVE ALL, I'M A WEB GEEK!

About Us

So, who are we anyway?

One of the problems with the web and the internet in general, is it can be a very impersonal experience. Most of the time you don't know who is sat behind the website you've been browsing for the last few minutes. No so here at Red Jaffa Design! If you are interested in finding out who is behind this very website, and why we believe we are the perfect choice for your web design needs (and more), please read on.

Who we are:

RedJaffa Design is a small, one man (plus associates) operation run by Jason Wood in Stourbridge, West Midlands. It has been operating since 2005.

The rest of the page will be written in first person since I really dislike having to refer to myself in the third person - especially since it is me who is typing this!

Skillset:

I have always been interested in things of a technical nature. I adored science at school and went on to study engineering and got a BEng (Hons) degree in Mechanical Engineering. However, my passion for programming eventually came through and in 2005 I moved over into the realm of web design.

Although it is possible to buy pre-made website templates, I much prefer to write bespoke code (normally all hand coded) for websites since it gives them a much more individual identity. Through doing this I have worked with all the common web technologies such as HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, JQuery etc as well as image manipulation software such as Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

I love learning new skills so I frequently read books about new technologies and study the latest web related trends.

Experience:

I have a lot of experience in creating website from scratch from bespoke photoshop layout designs. I code all of this by hand to ensure everything works as it should. With each site I build I gain new skills, experience and competence. I have built numerous websites, both simple information sites and more complex e-commerce 'shopping cart' sites. Along the way I have learned and used the various defacto web technologies and as a result I have the knowledge and skill to build & design great websites to perfectly suit your business.

Life:

Life isn't all about work. Life should be enjoyed, adventures partaken in and voyages experienced! I have a numerous interests outside of the web design world including playing musical instruments (guitar, piano, [violin is on the list!]), photography (OK that's slightly work related), gym, carpentry, magic tricks & cooking. I absolutely love cooking. I could talk about recipes and food all day - espeically indian food which is incredibly delicious. I even built a tandoor oven in the garden so I can make Naans and kebabs!
