My Services

A specialist in the design of beautiful, simple websites that succinctly convey your message and engage the user.

Website Design

Beautiful, yet simple websites, that will give your business a competitive advantage. All at a very competitive price.
Working with businesses of all sizes from sole traders to large organisations and providing a full range of web design and development services.
Whether you just need a small "One page" website or full commerical web site - I am here to help.

Responsive Design

Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting web sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience. Combining easy reading and ease of navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
All of this delivered across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
Often known as the 'One size fits all web site'.

Web Security

Web site security is the most overlooked aspect of securing data. We've all heard the term 'hacker' before and the damage they can do to financial institutions, retailers and other large corporations.
Besides the dangers of a data breach itself, there is also the risk of reputation and credibility loss to those who fall prey to an attack on their web site security.
So overall, hackers can be hugely damaging.

SEO

However beautiful your website is, it's of little use if it can not be found.
Search Engine Optimisation is a service, that's offered to new and existing clients, to improve the visibility of your website.
It's a way to broaden your online presence and improve your rankings in the main search engines.

Web Analytics

Web analytics is the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of web data for purposes of understanding and optimizing web usage.
With the challenges in your industry and knowing your goals are naturally unique to you and your business, analysing your web site activity can assist within the marketing of new business by providing data of whom you need to target in future campaigns.
