Freelance Web Designer

Daron Harvey is a freelance web designer with over 26 years experience in web design, website development, UX, web graphics, and web project management.

Web Design Experience

I started designing websites way back in 1996, long before Google appeared.

Having originally started as a freelance web designer producing websites for various sectors of industry, sports companies and small businesses, in late 2000 I was invited to join Hertz, the multi-national car rental company.

Hertz were putting together a team to build and maintain their multilingual international car rental websites, and I spent the first 8 years with the company developing their core websites using HTML, ColdFusion, JavaScript and SQL Server.

We then developed a new global java platform, incorporating the Interwoven content management system. As a side interest I began working with PHP and MySQL, developing PHP websites for personal use as well as for building websites for local businesses.


Multi-lingual website management

Expanding on this new Java platform, I took on the role of Franchisee and Partner manager, and was responsible for the implementation and management of a number of translated versions of the Hertz website, for Europe, Middle East, Africa, Thailand, China, Japan, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

28 different languages and dialects were implemented on the core websites, and Interwoven was later replaced with the more adaptable CMS by Adobe called AEM (Adobe Experience Manager)

My last few years with the company were spent working with teams from IBM and Accenture on a multi-million dollar digital transformation, encompassing a complete front end redesign, and back end system overhaul.

My career in eCommerce at Hertz continued for over 20 years until I decided to leave during the recent covid pandemic and return to freelance web design.
