About the developer

Hello and thank you for your interest in working together. I’m Elaine – the owner of XOmisse. I was born and raised in Dublin (Ireland) but I am currently based in London (UK), and I love working with creatives from all over the world.

Education and training
I have a BA (Hons) in Creative Digital Media, but the majority of what I do on a daily basis is self-taught through research, training and experience. During my degree, I got a fantastic insight into a range of creative areas but I quickly realised that web design and development was my thing. I get to use the creative and logical sides of my brain – I love that! 

Industry experience
I’ve been blogging since 2009, it’s a huge passion of mine so I know how important your site is to you. During that time I had the opportunity to intern at a digital marketing, SEO and web design agency working with clients one-on-one to take their businesses to the next level. This sparked my interest in SEO and digital marketing. Once graduated, I decided to start my own business in 2013 and have loved working with other creatives who are passionate about what they do. I have spoken at the Blogtacular conference about blog design (June 2015) and SEO (2018) and gave one-to-one advice at their Creative Genius Bar in 2016 and 2017. I’m also Creative Director and Head of Operations at Blogosphere, a media-tech company rooted in the influencer industry.

Values
I fully support Black Lives Matter, pro-choice and LGBTQIA+. If you don’t share my values, then I may not be the person for you.
