I have been designing websites since 1998. In that time I have built up a huge resource of experience. My sites have always been built by me from scratch. Every site I have ever created has been bespoke.
I take time to learn about your company and apply that knowledge to produce something which is not just fit for purpose but beautifully designed and a pleasure to use. Design is paramount but I also make sure the content is logically organised and streamlined to produce a site which is intuitive to navigate. I am often complimented on my sites being crisp, clear and easy to use.
All my sites are bespoke and are fully content managed so you can update your site yourself and add to it to make it grow as much as you like. My sites are also search engine optimised as standard, for specific SEO projects please contact me for details.
Sometimes a site requires a larger scale content management system or there may be a focus on providing social media integration as the major part of the site. I can develop your site to integrate many useful features such as
- wordpress framework website
- blog integration
- social media integration
- booking systems
- photo galleries
My education and training began with traditional graphic design. This provides me with a design foundation for every project I embark upon. I have been in the design industry since graduating in 1996 and am highly experienced in all aspects of graphic design including all design for print requirements.
Photography is my real passion, and I am even more passionate about integrating photography into a live project. Having me work on your design work and the photography is a very efficient and effective way of getting the absolute best results and saving you time and money.
I regularly produce high quality creative images for
- Product photography
- Interior photography
- Wedding photography
- Documentary photography
Often a project starts from the ground up with designing a logo. Sometimes I can update what you already have and integrate that into a website or print project. Logo design is a skilled mix of lateral thinking and design execution. A good logo can make the difference between mediocre success and the big time.
Now you have a logo you need to carefully consider how and where it is to be used. Consistency is the key, I excel at coordinating multimedia projects to ensure they are visually consistent and recognisable.
I can apply the formulated identity to many different mediums
- Shopfront design
- Corporate stationery and literature
- Pop-up exhibition displays
- Clothing and merchandise
Whilst designing your website or taking photographs for you I spend a lot of time getting to know your business. Often it is difficult to see your own business objectively and sometimes we can not see the wood for the trees. I can help promote parts f your business which perhaps are not achieving as much as they could be.
I can help with
- Advertising campaigns
- Promotional materials
- Specific SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
My name is my business, I enjoy meeting with my clients and I love working for them. I am at the end of a phone to answer your questions and it’s me that answers your emails too. I am dedicated to producing work to the highest standards to promote your business and to create long lasting friendly and professional relationships with my clients. I won’t flannel you with designer speak I’d rather let you see my work and let that speak for me, after all, as they say in the design world “You are only as good as your last job”.
The ability to be creative is one thing but running a business is another. Managing finances, materials and suppliers and time management are essential also. I am proud of my business, it carries my name and reputation, therefore I take great pride and care in making sure it runs smoothly and that my client’s are satisfied with the work I produce for them and the process which takes place to make this happen.
Through college and university and onwards through various jobs in the design industry I have gained a wealth of experience. From new techniques, technologies and materials I have made it my mission to be constantly re-applying myself and to continue to learn to expand this experience in order to provide you the client with work to the highest possible standard.
Forming a lasting business relationship requires many things. The project has to be completed to the client’s specified requirements, and it must run professionally, although often overlooked is the human relationship between client and designer. I pride myself on being approachable and amenable to provide that little bit extra which makes the difference between a one-off project and a working relationship which lasts for years and years.
