My name is Adrian Wills and I've been a Web Designer and Developer since around 2007. I'm 27 years old; social and out-going, have an unhealthy obsession with music and would easily consider myself a self-confessed geek... enough so that I've coined the term 'Ghic' among a few friends. I also DJ from time to time and have done so for about 10 years now, lending myself to the more traditional 'House' music, some Electro, old school Hip Hop and anything I find that takes my fancy. I consider myself a creative person, although probably not in the conventional sense as I couldn't draw my way out of a deep hole; give me a copy of Illustrator and an idea and I'm as good as gold. I've been using Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and the like since I was about 14 when I used to modify pictures of friends cars for a minor profit. I've not really looked back since.
I studied and graduated an Advertising Diploma at the AUT shortly after school before I was lucky enough to get a break into the industry as a Graphic Designer and Mac Operator at Nicholson Print Solutions. I was then offered a job working for Richard Hayes at his small company Visualise where I discovered the wide possibilities there were to work in the internet industry. Needless to say I jumped right in, and three years at Wellcom Group helped me to truly explore the possibilities of what the web was capable of. I now work at Serato Audio Research - the company responsible for the groundbreaking Scratch Live software - combining my major interests... Web Development and DJing.
Be sure to take a look at my Portfolio for some examples of the kind of work I've been involved in, from small to large, old to new, easy to complicated. There's plenty of more interesting items on some of the other pages - my Tumblr Blog is a constant stream of bits and business I find on the internet so have a look at that too.
