My name is Oliver McVey. I am a Freelance Web Designer and Digital Creative from Guernsey and I love design! I design and develop websites that are beautiful to look at, easy to use and a snap to find!
I have been designing websites for the past three years. I spent two of these years getting a taste of web agency life before I decided to start Qpid and bring Guernsey into the current era of web. Like many designers I am a complete and utter Apple, Mac and iPhone addict. I am also a dab hand with the Adobe Creative Suite and my particular weapons of choice are Photoshop and Illustrator. I am also a self confessed Tweetaholic and Twitter has quickly become something that I definately dont think I could work without.
So why Qpid? I love all things web and design but at the heart of my business is the client. I truely believe in transparency and delivering fantastic, fresh and innovative web solutions, products and services that the client needs and at a fair cost. For me working in web today is all about collaboration and providing the client with an honest, professional and friendly service.
At Qpid I relish the opportunity of working with local people, clients and teams delivering high quality, beautiful looking online solutions whether it be a small business website or a fully fledged e-commerce shop.

I have worked with Ollie on numerous projects over the past couple of years, and every time he has demonstrated his thorough understanding of Web 2.0 design & usability. His mature outlook puts clients at ease, and he understands that good web design has to be integrated with usability and more frequently, communications platforms. His personal standards of design are impeccable, brave but workable, and his "good ethics" approach sets him apart from his peers. If you are looking for a designer that understands all aspects of web design from briefing to execution, Ollie is your man.
Qpid were efficient and fast, without jeopardising any of the creativity we were looking for in the design. We are thrilled with both our websites. Both deliver exactly what we require and we have had nothing but compliments on the design, quality and functionality.
