I started out in print design, contracting in-house with design departments and agencies around the Metro Detroit area. I worked on automotive, health care and financial sector projects and accounts. Later I began building brochure sites and identities for small businesses. After moving back to Ireland I predominantly worked on large websites for the tourism & lodging industry. This was where I began to learn about the powerful relationship between SEO and design.
Around 2007 I started a blog and worked consistently on it's SEO. After a couple of years, it achieved the first-page ranking on Google results for the key terms "photographs of Ireland" which even in 2010, had very broad results. The new opportunities created from obtaining the front page rank in Google proved very rewarding.
After moving back to the States I discontinued the blog but the combination of proper content, solid UX design and SEO strategy became my focus. If you have a digital design project that you think I may be able to help out with, get in touch at ei.wolfu@ih.
