Hi, my name is Daniel Steel and I'm a passionate freelance web developer from Hartlepool in the North East. I started freelancing while studying at University, I have over five years experience developing websites and a first class degree in Web Design and Development.

My Education and experience means that every project I undertake is completed to the highest standard using the latest techniques and best practises. I have a keen eye for detail and I believe that every element of a design is as important as each other. If you would like to know more or hire me for your project contact me below.

My approach

My approach to design is simple, I believe that a website should be based around the users needs and that every element of a design should serve a purpose. A user first approach provides the focus for each project, if users are happy then they will return, spread the word about your business and allow your business to fulfil its goals.
