Ian Thompson is a freelance web designer and developer in Manchester who works with clients and agencies locally and globally to deliver complex web projects.
My name is Ian Philip Thompson and I am a web designer, developer and digital professional currently living in Manchester, United Kingdom. With 10+ years of experience working in the digital world, I have the background and proven track record of bringing digital projects to life on budget and on time.
