About me

A small introduction about myself

Adam Faux

Web designer & developer from Manchester

I am a developer who is passionate about both front-end web design and back-end web development. I have over 7 years of experience working across both fields. I enjoy designing and developing creative yet functional websites, using content management systems and also creating custom builds. I strive to constantly test myself and my abilities.

I enjoy taking on large scale projects and looks to push the boundaries of what can be done to bring a site to life. I always try to keep abreast of the latest advancements within the industry and like to use these to create simple solutions to complex problems.
