Skye Web Design was established in 2012. Our first job of the rebuild on the Skye marketing website Isleofskye.com. Since then things have gone from strength to strength, we have gained a solid reputation for quality responsive websites that actually deliver real results for business owners.
Our website design company is based in Portree on the Isle of Skye. The business is owned by Dave Liley who is the main designer for most projects. Dhaval Gajjar is the lead the developer when more complex solutions are required.
Living on the outskirts of Portree, but originally from Dunvegan. I have a background in sports coaching with sailing and swimming as my specialist sports.
Around 1998 I first learned to draw on a computer using a software package called AutoCAD, then progressed to use CorelDraw which I still use for much of my design work now.
I learnt to create websites mainly through necessity, as a business owner who needed a website. Like many new business owners, I was keen to save some money by making website updates myself. To aid my independence from my ‘web designer’ I took some online courses on website maintenance and then on how to write code, since that point I have not looked back.
These days I am proficient in HTML and CSS (SASS), as this is such a fast moving industry there is always something new to learn.
