Seran Manyera-Bond: Director Online Interface Design
After graduating from City Univerity London, Seran joined the publishing company Pearson Education (formerly Addison-Wesley Longman) as a Marketing Database Executive, and her career expanded into the fields of website design, database systems development and online interface design.
She has worked in central London for an IT and Telecoms consultancy as a Web Content Manager, and an IT Project Manager for The Open University at their Headquarters in Milton Keynes, and went on to form IceStar Media in 2002.
Seran conceptualises all design elements of the website build process and manages client content, including advising on copywriting for best SEO performance. Seran also manages the layout and design of online interfaces for bespoke database systems, ensuring smooth navigation and usability.
Seran builds websites page by page and when it comes to layout, presentation and website performance her attention to detail really comes into play. Seran is extremely driven when it comes to delivering projects and providing quality customer service. She has been invited into schools to give blogging advice to children and highlight the importance of online safety, a subject Seran is extremely passionate about.
Seran is a very proud mum to her daughter, has attained a qualification from Capel Manor College, London in the Principles of Garden Design, is an animal lover, enjoys nature, photography, ancient history, and sport, is a big fan of good food, and no matter what the weather throws at her in leafy Grantham she will go for a run as she enjoys motivating people to get active and take care of their physical and mental health.
“I first met Seran at a Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce networking event when I was working for St John Ambulance. I hired Seran to build an intranet site, which was a great success.
I value Seran’s opinion and have found her to be completely trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and above all dedicated to delivering against the brief set. I can say confidently that I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for assistance with web development. ”
