Well, hello! I’m Kim! I think this is the place where I’m supposed to tell you that I’m a “web design ninja”, or a “WordPress Wizard”… but I don’t have a wand OR a black mask, and I’m not a douchebag, so I won’t.
What I can tell you about me, though, is that I know my shit when it comes to making websites. I spent a few years working at a web development agency before spreading my wings and heading to the realms of freelance.
I love working with clients who know they want a website, know what they like, but don’t really know how to make it happen. I like to work honestly, telling the client from the outset if one of their grand website dreams won’t work within budget, keeping my clients up to date with the progress, and keeping lines of communication firmly open (by email, skype, or twitter… you’ll think I’m stalking you by the end of the project).
I love to work with WordPress, Shopify, jQuery, and SASS – but then, you’re probably not that bothered how it works, so long as it works well, right?
I want you to succeed
Sounds incredibly corny, but I really do. When I was just starting out with websites and business, I really wish I’d had someone to nudge me in the right direction, hold my hand a bit, and guide me through the first steps. I didn’t want a business advisor or consultant, none of those wanky guys wearing suits and ties. I wanted someone who had been through exactly what I’d been through, and had weathered the storm successfully.
I’ve been working for myself for over 4 years now. I’ve doubled my income, learnt a shitload of lessons, and enjoyed (mostly) every second. Whether you’re hiring me to build your website, buying one of my information products, worksheets or courses, you can be sure that I’m guiding you with knowledge and experience.
Want to know more about me?
I’m based in Huddersfield, UK, but don’t let that put you off – we still have the internet in Yorkshire. I live with 2 crazy cats, 1 hyper golden retriever and 1 astrophysicist. I design and make things under the name of Finest Imaginary, which I work on 50/50 with Kim Lawler Creative (or, you know, sometimes 80/20, or 100/100 when I’m stupid).
I prefer whisky to vodka, have a serious relationship with gherkins, and leave a trail of shoes around my house.
