* I made that up, by the way.
Devon web design agency – move to Devon?
While it’s great to have an office environment to work from, most people think that a web or graphic designer can work from anywhere. I’ve lost count of the number of times someone has said to me “you can work from anywhere, why don’t you move abroad” or “why don’t you just hang out in a cafe to design your websites?”
All of that’s true of course, but a proper desk and a proper computer (mine’s a Mac of course, don’t get me started on the whole Mac vs PC debate!) rather than a laptop or iPad.
This is because while a laptop or an iPad (especially an iPad Pro) are amazing, you need the base to work from; a big screen, a comfortable desk and a graphics tablet as web design needs lots of screen-space!
Don’t move to Devon!
It’s thought that Devon is one of the best places to re-locate to, especially after the Pandemic where people started to question their work environments, and it’s easy to see why this part of the South west is so desirable, with great beaches and countryside.
But this is a message for all web designers; please don’t come to Devon to start up your web design agency, we have enought web designers in Devon as it is. We don’t need more competition!
I’d love to work from the cafe up the road; I might even try it some tie, but I love my little office with its quirky floors and sloping ceilings and the view out the window. So it’s here that’ll I’ll stay. For now anyway.
