Hello, my name is Edd Smith. I am the director of Purple Claw Ltd. We are a web development agency based on New Walk, Leicester. Clients come to us with designs and ideas. We write code, transforming them into working websites and applications.
My first experience writing code for websites started in my early teens, using iFrames, tables and flashing GIFs. I graduated from this when between the years of 2005 and 2011 when I ran my own eCommerce store, along with a real (bricks and mortar) shop selling snowboarding and kiteboarding gear. I took care of all my own technology requirements.
From this vantage point as an online retailer, I came to realise the distinct lack of good developers with real life experience in the application of what they were coding. In 2011 I decided to close up shop and start out as a freelancer. Soon demand for my services outstripped supply; I took a studio on Leicester's New Walk, and set about employing a team of devs to work with me and grow the bus
