RKD Digital was founded by Robert Kent (me!), you'll notice a lot of royal 'we' on this website, and that's because I believe in the partnerships I've made with other specialist developers and agencies and count them as an important part of my own company. I'm a web developer from Leicester who has been in the industry since 2010. After leaving my old web company, my girlfriend and I travelled the world for over a year. During this time, I picked up a few freelance projects from kind-hearted ex-colleagues. This helped us continue travelling way past our original 6-month budget - especially in Asia where a few hundred pounds can last you a long time!
"World Traveller" by Day, Web Developer by night, I managed to snatch a few hours every day, typing away on a tiny 13" MacBook Air, building WordPress and Magento websites and delivering them back to my partner agencies in the UK. This helped me build the contacts, skills and confidence required to continue working for myself upon our return.
After returning in July 2017, I set up RKD in order to pursue my dream of running my own web agency, building websites the correct way and making sure that the client is always put first. In this industry, it's important to stay focused, stay fresh and most importantly - up-to-date with the changes in technology.
