Website Design

I have been engaged by various businesses to design and build websites. I really enjoy working with them to create imagery and sites to display what they do and what they are passionate about; whether it be plastering, mental health or accommodation and boat yards. Click on the screens in the image above to discover the websites I have created. 

Birch Hosting

I use Birch Hosting. While there are cheaper hosting sites available, their level of support and expertise is superb, which represents good value for money. The speed of their support is second to none, and they have been very helpful in the past. If I can’t fix something, they can!

WordPress

WordPress is one of the most common platforms to build websites with. This means that whatever you want on your website, someone has done it before and there is probably existing code to do it. Maps, weather forecasts, booking systems , shops, stock control. It’s all there.

Elementor

While WordPress allows wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) page creation. Elementor takes it to a new level. For some websites the clients will update and modify pages and posts at their leisure, with support from me. It also allows custom styling and code to be used as required giving, me  full control of the final site.

Photoshop

Clients may have their own images, but they will still need manipulating to get them to the right dimensions, style and size for the web. I have 14 years experience with photoshop and being a keen photographer, I can also be engaged for photoshoots.

Bootstrap

Recently I hace noticed quite a few sites using bootstrap. This uses HTML, CSS and Javascript rather than the rather bulky themes and code of wordpress. So for fast simple sites it is gives greater performance and makes sites very portable. I currently have this site, The Minstead Florist, using it

Support

I also have a number of clients that populate and keep uptodate their own websites. I host them for a yearly fee and then will support them to ensure the health and access to the website. If they require any creative or extra technical support then I help out on an hourly rate.
