New Developer - Richard Lewis
Cocoonfxmedia, a leading web design and digital marketing company based in Lichfield, Staffordshire are proud to introduce a fourth new talented member to their growing team, Richard Lewis. Taking the position of a new Web Developer.
Initially, Richard studied Fine Art at university, but began designing and building websites in 2007. He then progressed with evening courses at Birbeck University of London. Previously, Richard worked for an international academic membership association, improving their online presence.
Richard began working at Cocoonfxmedia in January and has come on leaps and bounds. In Richard's words: "Since joining the team I have been able to develop my knowledge of cutting-edge software, and the opportunity to work collaboratively on a diverse set of projects has been really rewarding (no day is the same!). It’s great that the design process is really valued at Cocoonfxmedia – it’s something I believe leads to better outcomes for all involved in a project.”
Design Partner, Glen Tapper said: "Richard has naturally filled the position well, providing the extra support we needed in our development side of the business and the day to day support of our clients. He's brought some fresh perspective to the daily office processes and work procedures which at this time of growth are vital to ensure we have a solid base to build on going forward"
Managing Partner, James Blackman said: "Richard joining Cocoonfxmedia is an exciting step forward, bringing a new dimension to our web development service. Richard has already made a big impact on enhancing our new e-commerce platform. We're looking forward to developing his skill set and help him on his journey to becoming a full stack developer.
Cocoonfxmedia have been developing products to help cement themselves in the logistic sector. This first round of projects are now coming to an end. The team will be looking to make further steps to leverage the position they have and develop products further, of which some key companies have already shown interest.
On a broader level, Cocoonfxmedia continue to engage with local academia, including Staffordshire University and BCU, to help address the conversation around ensuring the next generation of employees are skilled right for the industry and directly with students to provide experience and opportunities.
