Who is Vivid?
Hey there! I’m Gareth Parkinson, a web designer with over 10 years of experience producing websites across the UK and Europe. I specialise in a variety of areas from Web Design & Graphic Design, to the Networking and IT Services. My client base is wide and varied, the majority located in the North West of England, consisting of small to medium businesses starting their online journey or looking to make it better.
Just like you, I’m human. I’m not a big company or enterprise – I’m an honest hard working father of 3 with a keen interest in web design and computers. I started Vivid Web Design over 10 years ago, after being made redundant, as a way to continue to provide for my family. I am dedicated to every project I undertake from the very start to the very end – and even beyond.
I also love to get involved with the local community and have volunteered at St Patrick’s Amateur Rugby League Club as a deputy manager and touchline manager for the under 7s in their 2018 season. Vivid Web Design also sponsors the now Unders 8s, and the company logo now adorns the kit I also designed.
I’m always interested in working on new projects, with either individuals or businesses. So if you’re looking here, it’s likely you need a solution I can probably help with. So why not get in touch and we can discuss how we can work together, and let’s get the ball rolling?
A Vivid History
A new direction.
2 years in the making, Vivid has partnered up with a number of businesses in the North West to provide a greater number of Technological Solutions to new and existing clients. With these new partnerships, Vivid is able to offer Networking Solutions, IT Supply Solutions and IT Support Solutions – bringing the original concept of the business back in 2008 to fruition. With these new offerings, it was time to freshen up, and a new company logo was designed.
A turning point.
After a number of years designing websites, Vivid had built up an impressive portfolio of contacts, colleagues and even friends. The client base stretched as far north as Scotland and as far south as Surrey. Some existing contacts were even setting up in Spain! With these new contacts, Vivid began the process of expanding the range of services on offer.
Vivid Web Design UK takes over.
The Technological Solutions side of GPT Solutions was difficult to launch at the time, and the business was focusing on Web Design for a number of clients. Whilst the business was exploring new ways of offering Web Design services to small businesses, it was at a time when small businesses still didn’t understand the real need for an online presence. With this in mind, and to focus more on growing the Web Design side of the business, a name change was in order and Vivid Web Design UK was decided upon.
It started with GPT Solutions.
GPT Solutions was the original business. It was a business idea which started off large, but still to this day guides the direction of Vivid. The business started with the aim of providing a wide range of Technological Solutions aimed at small businesses. However, with little financial investment, setting up to offer the grand solutions that were in mind quickly appeared to be an almost impossible task.
Pre-Vivid (2002 – 2008)
Before the business was born, Gareth was a keen web designer and developer for entertainment purposes and was creating, maintaining and hosting a number of websites. Mostly these websites were small personal projects, but a number of these websites were online forums (communities) with monthly visits of over 100,000 people per month.
