Midas offered me a trainee role back in 1999 as a Web Designer, in their small agency, OnlyInternet. This opportunity allowed me to quickly pick up a host of web skills including Photoshop, Flash and HTML. At that time it was HTML4.0 and i also learnt the basics of Search Engine Optimisation, too.
Midas was to close the agency and absorb the web team into their own set-up, relocating at the time across Cambridge into the Science Park. It was a further move to Stanstead which persuaded me to leave, but i am always thankful for my time here and the skills that i picked up.
Having joined as a trainee, i left Midas as a lead Flash designer with strong skills additionally in HTML4, Photoshop and CSS.
