Based in Dorset on the south coast of England and with a BSc (Hons) in Computing and IT, I am perfectly equipped to give your business an effective web presence through a well defined and well designed website that promtoes your business attracting visitors and potential customers.  My peace of mind comes from knowing my clients are 100% happy with a website they can be proud of.

My web design process places my customers at the centre of everything I do. I want to get to the heart of what makes you unique and the best choice for your clients. My goal is to help you realise your vision while providing honest advice along the way and above all, I want your website to stand out.

If required, advice can be given on your choice of domain names and while hosting is not provided in house, advice on the various hosting packages is available, please read my blog on hosting for more information.  Once your website is complete and live, you can update your own site or, I can offer support and maintenance packages to meet your needs.

The Tools

I use Divi for WordPress because it is an all round and adaptable theme with a drag and drop page builder, this enables me to create websites visually with flexible layouts.  It is compatible with many plugins allowing for site expansion with additional functionality. Branding can be changed easily, colours, fonts and layouts choosen to suit without the need for hard coding.  Plus, the Divi community is huge, the support is vast and new ideas and products are widely shared.

I customise websites to tailor fit your design, your business needs and to promote your brand.  Every website I build includes integration with Google analytics, which enables you to analyse your website traffic and visitors.

Why WordPress?

I specialise in using the Content Management System (CMS) WordPress along with the Divi theme. I also have experience with the CMS Joomla, the website builder Wix and coding skills including HTML, CSS and JavaScript. With a keen passion to learn I stay up to date with the latest trends in all aspects of web design and web developments including SEO, performance and security.

WordPress is my preferred choice because of its versatility. It has the flexibility to create almost any type of website from simple blogging sites to online stores. It is open source, very well documented and by far the most supported CMS platform available.

WordPress enables smooth and effortless editing and updating. Features and extensions are openly available to keep your site fresh and up to date. It supports a range of media types from image to audio and video content. Social media channels can be seamlessly integrated. In addition, it is SEO friendly making your website attractive to search engines.
