Summary

Hi Onsiters! I am Jeppe Risum from Denmark. Proud owner of my company webGenius. 
I have a versatile skill set spanning Digital Marketing, Creative Web Design, Web Development, E-commerce, UX, Branding, and WordPress expertise. 
What sets me apart from most in the business, is that I am both creative and technical. This means I can on one hand create beautiful creative designs, and on the other hand, perform technical state of the art, high performing development, build on a solid mastery of the fundamental web technologies of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This also entails that I can adapt effectively to most projects in UX, design and development.
My approach is centered on building bespoke websites from the ground up, each tailored to my customers' unique requirements. This approach may involve a higher initial cost, but it reduces the likelihood of errors and ensures much easier long-term maintenance, resulting in a much more cost-effective solution. I create a digital presence that combines aesthetics and functionality. With my deep understanding of the core technologies that drive the web and apps, I can adapt to most scenarios with a very short learning curve.

Have owned a computer since the web was invented, and over the years I have gained much knowledge of its many possible applications.

At first it was for friends, later for companies and corporations. The projects have, among other disciplines, also involved a lot of online marketing, SEO and usability. I mainly do web projects in Wordpress/Woocommerce Now and then I still do these kinds of project, when I can see that I have some free time available for it. It is both my work and my hobby.
