WELCOME !

WELCOME ! | domclaxton | Scoop.it

 

I use this site to feed and 'enhance' my twitter posts,  keeping it up to date with as much relevant material as I can find.

As my cover description above suggests I use both sites to post news related to all things digital, with particular reference to social media and Business technology.

I have worked as a web developer/designer, creative director, project manager and can probably be described best as a 'Designer who Codes'.

 

I am British but living in Melbourne, Australia.

**I am currently available for work.**

If you want to get in touch please do so at domclaxton@gmail.com 

You can view the projects I have worked by visiting  http://domclaxton.com

 

I also keep a blog of my creative interests at http://domclaxton.tumblr.com
