So who is this guy Chris Waters?

What I can do for you

Hi I’m Chris Waters and yes, I build, design and produce websites. But unlike other designers I’m not just intertesting in making something that looks pretty, it feeds to be functinoal, and purpse built. The way I look at it is that I build online marketing tools. Digital website applications that are designed around a specific goal, for a specific audience to achieve a specific purpose. Anyone can make a website that looks great. That’s easy. I’ve chosen to make it my career goal to build websites that perform!

I’m one of those weird people who are equally geeky, arty and social. I love getting thousands of lines deep in code, just as much as I enjoy finding efficiencies in project management or communication.

Working with me is like getting the work force of sole attention of a big agency, for a single person’s fee. Sounds attractive, right?

How I work

Through years of managing the work forces of multiple creative agencies I’ve discovered the balance between clearly articulated project structures, and flexible relationships expectations.

I’m formulaic in my approach working to pre-defined review rounds, project scope and budgets, yet I place a high value on relationships which keeps things flexible.

At the end of the day I’m interested in a) producing great work b) creating great working relationships. I’ll do whatever it takes to achieve these two things.

Skills

When you work with a single developer it’s important that they are multi-disciplinary. I’ve worked hard over the years to broaden my skill set to enable me to do the work of an agency, but with the focus of an individual. Below are some of my core skills.

  • Strong eye for design.
  • Strong technical understanding of MySQL, PHP, HTML5, CSS & Java script.
  • Graphic design software skills.
  • Passion for UI and UX user journey management.
  • Strong project management.
  • Communication skills.
  • Relationship and results driven.
