My name is Leanne Priestnall (née Norris) and I am a web designer and developer from High Wycombe. I graduated from Buckinghamshire New University in 2001 with a degree in BSc (Hons) Business Information Technology (2:1). After graduating I was employed as Database Manager for a chartered accountants in Marylebone, London and worked on web design projects in my spare time.
In 2006 I decided to change direction in my IT career and focus on web design and development full-time. I started working as Web Developer for Carrentals.co.uk and after a year, moved on to a more challenging role at Indeprod Web Agency where I was responsible for the design and development of a selection of various size websites, most notably for the car manufacturer SEAT’s UK web presence.
In 2009 I became Web Designer for Oxford Creative Limited and also worked on freelance website projects in my spare time. After being on maternity leave to have my two children in 2011-2012, I decided to work solely as a Freelance Web Designer and Developer.
In 2017, I became Director of my own company – Grace Jacob Media Limited (Grace & Jacob are my children’s middle names). This was so that I could not only work for small businesses but also larger corporations who tend to prefer dealing with limited companies. I now also employ other designers and developers to work on bigger projects with me.
In 2019, I also became Web Design Manager for Duncross Media – A digital marketing solutions company based in Cleveland, UK and Utah, USA.
