web design & web maintenance

Building websites

You can have a website or a suite of UI designs built from scratch if that’s what you need. However, I also provide a website maintenance service, whereby I look after your security, your plugin updates, add new text and data, design new pages and more.

Changing a website gradually and carefully over time is a very sensible way of doing things. Your audience don’t get any big shocks or scares and smaller changes are much easier to measure and assess.

WordPress is my comfort zone but I’ve worked extensively with Wix, Shopify, Squarespace and more.

Website administration & support

If you need someone who can code, update and design new pages, add new plugins, decode hosting communications and generally make sense of the digital world then we should talk. I’ve been doing this for many years and I have a wealth of experience in this area.

Its also useful for you to have someone on board who can design, manage printing, maintain your website and generally do creative stuff for you so you can get on with running your business. Need to ask me a question about all of this? Email me here.

User interface design & UX

I’ve been doing this so long, it was called Front-End Development when I started! You can trust me to design and build you good-looking and useful UIs, based on data, based on your branding or both.

If you want to pay me to obsess over whether button inputs should have a bevel effect, then that’s great. Do be aware though, I prefer to do that kind of granular analysis when there’s a swathe of user data on which to base those kinds of decisions.

Design process

I can build you a website from your designs or I can create you one in Figma. Usually I’ll email you JPG’s of the UI for you to get your marker out on, but I can also use Figma to create an interactive mock up if you need me to.

Its worth noting though, that sometimes the design process will throw up visuals that you don’t like. This is normal and is a valuable part of finding visuals that you DO like.

I also design in print and in digital, if you’d like to take a look.
