Alex is one of the most organised developers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. As a designer, it was refreshing to see him always working as part of a team, keenly trying to work out challenges and solutions with a website even from its early stages. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex.

What I’ve been doing lately...

I moved house last month back to my childhood village of Radcliffe-on-Trent. My new place doesn’t have a dedicated office room like my old flat, but I have made the most of this space underneath the stairs to create a cosy workstation…

I also now have a garden so in the summer I’ll be working out there whenever possible!

As well as watching the football, over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on launching the latest version of the LogoMeUp website.

This update introduces their 2022 rebrand, a new homepage layout and – most importantly – a filter-based navigation system for the product categories that makes it very simple for customers to narrow down their search for the perfect embroidered clothing.

This is a feature we’ve wanted to have for years but it was only made possible this year because their supplier introduced a list of product tags onto their database, allowing us to create filters for garment style, colour groups, product uses, materials and much more.

My first bit of major work for Clicky Media has been live for about a month. Feedback today from the conversions manager: “Quote requests have increased by 57% and conversion rate has increased by 30%” ?

Very often as a developer you don’t know what impact your work is having, at least not in a quantifiable way like this. The results-driven approach was one of the things that attracted me to Clicky over other agencies.

A lot of people contributed to this new feature and we spent significant time collaborating on the UX, so it’s fantastic to see the figures justifying the effort. ?

Alex Walker, profile picture with Clicky

? It’s official! I’ve been settled in for a while but it’s time to formally announce that I have joined the team at prestigious digital marketing agency Clicky Media on a full-time basis.

My new job title is UX and Conversion Developer which is a really great reflection of the work I’m now doing – focusing on optimal user experiences to help our clients get results.

Clicky are based in Chester, but I’m mostly working remotely from my home in Nottingham with the odd trip up to the North West to see the rest of the team. As a company, everyone is keen to follow progressive working practices and employee welfare is also a high priority, which is one of the reasons I decided to join them for the next step in my career. ?

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank my amazing freelance clients over the last few years and wish them well with their future projects!

New LogoMeUp unit in Bingham, Nottinghamshire

Visiting today with my clients LogoMeUp at their brand new unit in my town of Bingham. Handy for me, but also a proud moment to see the business grow from a one-man operation in a garage back in 2014 to a spacious factory employing 8 members of staff!

The new location also has a shop area where customers can view their range of garments and learn more about their screen printing and embroidery services, so do stop by if you are looking for some new clobber for your business or sports team.

If you call in, hopefully you’ll find a smooth-running operation because as well as building their website, over the years I have helped the company develop bespoke order and stock management systems to make the team’s jobs easier. And now they are in the same town as me, I’ve got no excuse not to pop in every now and then to see how they are getting on / listen to the complaints!
