A Few Fun Facts
I love tea (Yorkshire Gold, obviously) and coffee (Douwe Egberts but I'm not picky). I'm a cat person but I love other people's dogs. Football really isn't for me. Rugby Union's where the fun's at. I'm not a big drinker but cider or Captain Morgan are my tipples of choice. Pizza is the best food there is. I love playing video games. I enjoy oil painting while watching along to Bob Ross. When I was 5 we lived in a castle all to ourselves for a few days thanks to a renovation. Yorkshire puddings belong on a Christmas dinner. I make websites.
Hi, I'm Aidan.
I've always been a bit of a computer nerd. I enjoy creating things and since I'm useless with my hands I always knew I wanted to do something that would allow me to create things on computers; websites, videos, music, images, logos, magazines, flyers, games. I dabble in it all but web design is where I spend my time.
I went to Northumbria University to learn "I.T. and Multimedia Design" which allowed me to try my hand at nearly everything I just mentioned. Web design really grabbed me here and so this is where I decided to focus my efforts.
I'm self employed and have been making websites for people since 2008. I used to operate under the name "2nd Render Media" but I decided after a decade a re-brand was long overdue (and I always kind of hated the old name) and so Castria was born.
So what's in a name? I make websites for people all around the country but, being based in the Newcastle and Gateshead area, I wanted a name to subtly reflect this.
Novo Castria is the Latin name for Newcastle. I'm not sure when I first heard this but I always liked it and I suppose it stuck around in the back of my head for years. So I dropped the "Novo" bit and kept the Castria. Finally a name I actually like for my business.
The aim of Castria web design is to focus on creating websites for small businesses that serve their local area, new or old. Coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, butchers, bakers, candle stick makers plus any number of others you can think of.
If you would like a website or have any questions at all please get in touch below. I would love to get you and your business established online.
