FiveRDesign was created in 2008 by a pair of university graduates who have been friends for many years having attended school together in Hertfordshire, and then having both graduated from The University of Hertfordshire and The University Of Greenwich in London respectively. Our developer also went on to complete his Masters degree in London (again at The University Of Greenwich) in "Internet Technology & E-Commerce" specialising in Web Development and Web Design. Both of us have had keen interests in web design and web development for many years. Our developer has lived in the Kent area for the last few years but has recently moved to Cambridge & is currently in full time employment in web design & web development in London, thereby widening the area that we can cover easily.
