Consultation and Planning

Full guidance is on hand to help develop the web site that best suits your needs. From complex designs to simple functional web sites, close consultation ensures the right site design for your requirements. I very much believe in cutting through the pretence and jargon that often surrounds the design process and take pride in a down-to-earth, no nonsense approach that gets results.

Logo & Menu Design, Graphics & Illustration

Original artwork can be created in a wide range of styles. Everything required to build a web site, including vector logos, bitmap and vector illustrations, graphics, user interfaces, widgets and icons. 2D and 3D. If you already have existing artwork, images or logos you wish to use, these can be converted into a suitable format and optimised where necessary.

Page Authoring & Web Programming

A range of web technologies will be used as appropriate for your project, including HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), PHP and CGI Scripting. A strong emphasis is placed on site usability and cross platform compatibility to ensure designs are fully compatible with all major web browsers and are backwards compatible as much as is feasibly possible. Because sites are developed to current web standards your site will be as future proof as possible and will be easy to maintain and upgrade.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

A proven track record in gaining top rankings on search engines such as Google and Bing means that many sites I design rank on the first page of Google for relevant key words and phrases (many even as high as #1). No tricks or cheats are employed to achieve this, just solid design techniques and plenty of experience. It is not possible to guarantee to get every site to the top as there are so many factors that influence this, but you can be sure that your site will achieve the best ranking it possibly can.

Mobile Device Support

Increasingly web sites are viewed on mobile devices and tablets and for some kinds of sites perhaps more on mobile devices than via the desktop. It is therefore vital that your site looks good and functions properly on a mobile device. All designs are created with mobile devices firmly in mind, coded to web standards and checked across a range of devices.

Dynamic Content, Shopping & Databases

Many sites require a database driven solution for features such as online shopping and dynamic content. Care will be taken to select the best solution for your site. In some cases this will be an 'off the shelf' solution, in other cases a custom solution may be required. Either way, the most appropriate solution will be seamlessly integrated with your web site.

Social Networking Integration

Many web sites need to work in conjunction with social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr etc. I will ensure that your site integrates with these services so that your web site is as well connected as possible. User participation is also an important ingredient for some sites and if your site requires interactive features then these can be implemented.

Photography & Video

If you need photographic and/or video services these can be provided. This may include shooting photos for you (e.g. product photos) or editing existing photos in Photoshop to prepare them for your web site. If your site requires video content then I will ensure this is in an appropriate format and fully integrated with your web site. I am not currently able to shoot video, but I plan to add this service soon.

Support & Site Maintenance

Once your site is finished you aren't left holding the baby. I will continue to support your site for as long as you need. Sites are designed with ease of maintenance in mind, so that you should find it easy to carry out updates and minor changes yourself. But everyone has different needs in this regard and site maintenance packages can be arranged to suit if you'd like assistance with updates.
