I am the owner of and the designer behind Avue Design! Don’t ask me what “Avue” stands for or even how to pronounce it – it’s a made up word that I thought looked interesting… Of course the word “Design” is not made up, and it’s what my business is all about. I got into photography first and subsequently became familiar with a few of the Adobe software programs such as Lightroom, Photoshop and Illustrator. Looking to put my new creative skills to use, I started making websites with WordPress for friends and family. I still take a lot of photos and videos, both for clients and private use, and recently added a drone to the mix!
What I love about my job
In the last 8 years I have created many websites for a variety of businesses. No business is the same and naturally neither are the websites I create, which makes every project really exciting. I love tackling a new website or graphic design project to get the perfect result and I enjoy the interaction with my clients along the way to make sure I’m on the right track with the vision they have for their product.
The flexibility of this job is amazing, it can be done at any time and anywhere in the world. However, I mostly work from my cozy office at home on beautiful Vancouver Island.
Fun fact: the wind mill in the image I created for this section, is from my hometown in the Netherlands where I grew up; the falls are the Elk Falls in Campbell River, the city I get to call home now.
