Web design & development
My work is founded on solid research and planning, carefully considered design and quality code that makes use of the latest browser capabilities. I follow a content-out, mobile-first approach to create responsive websites that provide great user experience across all types of device. Static mockups never tell the whole story so I like to move design into the browser early. Under the hood, I try to keep it clean, DRY and well-structured, optimised for users, speed and search engines.
Wordpress is the most popular content management system in the world, and can be customised to fit your needs perfectly. With seven years' experience working with Wordpress, I can create bespoke designs and develop advanced themes that will stand you out from the rest. From a simple brochure site to a fully-fledged online shop, Wordpress provides an easy to use, scalable and cost-effective solution for managing your website. Most of the sites I build use this fantastic CMS.
A beautiful online storefront will engage new and existing customers alike. I can deliver effective ecommerce websites on a variety of platforms, including Wordpress, Magento and Shopify. What will work best for you depends on your budget, what you're selling and how you'd like to work. You’ll be able to manage stock, add products and take secure payments from anywhere in the world. I’ll take time to explain what’s involved with selling online and how you can grow your sales.
Often overlooked in the rush to design, content is the most important part of any website and should inform design and development decisions. Ensuring words, images and other media are useful, accessible and well structured is vital to improving user experience. By knowing what content your audience wants, and how they like it delivered, I can develop a strategy that achieves your goals.
A fantastic looking website is only half the battle. To really impress your visitors you need brilliant copy too. I can make your pages sing with engaging, easy to read content that’s written with your business objectives in mind. The right tone of voice, an effective content structure and irresistable calls to action make the difference between a good site and a great one. And search engines will love you for it.
Logos & Branding
For new businesses or those looking to re-brand I can create an identity that stimulates and connects with your audience. Logos, business cards, stationery and other promotional materials can be bundled with a great looking website. Each element will be strategically and creatively developed to work as a whole, creating a consistent and effective image for the customers you want to attract.
I also help clients to reach a wider audience outside the web, enjoying occassional forays into the world of design you can touch. From adverts, flyers and newsletters to signs, posters and brochures, I can successfully communicate your message in a meaningful way and create opportunities to grow your business. I'm no professional illustrator, but work with some of the best around. Whatever you need, I can find the right solution.
Search Engine Optimisation
SEO can help your site achieve sustainable growth through better search rankings and increased traffic. If I build your site, it will come optimised already. If you have an existing site, by improving code, content and structure it can be made more accessible to search engines and more relevant to the search queries of your target audience. Whether you’d like more local customers or business from further afield, effective SEO can bring them in.
Hosting & Maintenance
From minor tweaks to ongoing management, I provide a great value service to keep your website functioning as it should. The smallest problem can drastically reduce the effectiveness of your website, yet it might take just 5 minutes to fix. I can also save you time spent on frequent updates, site maintenance or backups. Many clients like me to host the website I build for them, and they enjoy reliable and secure hosting from just £5 per month.
