Hi, I am

Aaron Hilson

I am a designer.

About Me

I’m Aaron, a 21-year-old web design and development graduate from Northumbria University. Based in Whittlesey, Peterborough, my passion is creating slick, responsive websites. My passion, from an early age, lies within tech and computing. Ranging from programming to graphic design, from small online business ventures to social media marketing, all aspects of digital work interests me. Outside of the computing world, unfortunately, I’m an avid lifelong Leeds United fan, as I am a fan of participating and watching football in general.

What I Do

WEBSITE DESIGN

I design slick, fast, professional websites that are responsive across all devices, allowing you to reach the widest audience possible. Each website is crafted with user experience and accessibility in mind.

WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

I develop websites using latest technologies to produce a fully functioning website, tailored to your specifications. A CMS can be used to streamline the development process, also offering the ability for you to manage your own website.

WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

I can preform regular website maintenance so your site will run smoothly, and to modify and update content. This means that you won’t have any unimpressed visitors because something on your website content is outdated and not functioning as expected.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Aside from websites, I also create designs for other things such as logos, CD covers and poster designs, giving your business a visual identity that communicates your message and brand effectively.
