A Web Wizard with a Magic Touch

If you want a clean design for a website, one that’s thoughtfully conceived, expertly built, and renders nicely on any device, Roland Riddell is your man. He is a web designer whose work has spanned a wide range of projects and applications across an impressive mix of industries on multiple continents. Roland doesn’t just build websites, he empowers companies to use their custom-built sites to achieve their marketing objectives.

Eye-Catching Web Design, from the Land of the Long White Cloud

Roland hails from Auckland, New Zealand. He met his American wife while she was working overseas in his hometown. They travelled back to the U.S, where he learned his trade stateside at the University of South Florida and Santa Fe College. They’re now back in New Zealand but Roland’s work has no borders. He’s rolling up his sleeves and getting down to work both stateside and abroad. Roland’s toolbox runneth over - offering web, multimedia, and graphic solutions - he’s a one-stop shop. He may work independently or cross functionally, he may work in Drupal or Wordpress, CSS or SCSS, but he always gets the job done.

Each New Day, an Opportunity to Learn

Never stop learning: That’s Roland’s motto, and he works hard to walk the talk. This is especially important in the realm of technology, where each new day seems to bring with it another technical innovation. Roland loves that about his chosen field, just as he loves the way a well-built website levels the competitive playing field, offering small companies the opportunity to have the same global presence as their larger, deeper-pocketed counterparts. His work empowers his clients, and when it does Roland knows he’s done his job.

Time Off: Got Adventure? Roland Is Ready.

New Zealand is filled with avid outdoors enthusiasts, and Roland is certainly one of them. Snow sports, mountain biking: Roland is no stranger to the active lifestyle and has had the broken bones to prove it. As a general rule, he enjoys the slightly slower pace of life in his home country. He works hard, plays hard, and tackles every project with the same passionate intensity and the same objective: exceeding his client’s objectives.
