Web Development

Responsive, standards based websites

Visitors to your site will often use their mobile phones, while today Google ranks websites in part by their optimisation for mobile. The website I build are ‘responsive’ – mobile and tablet friendly, designed to be viewed on all types of devices.

A responsive website is a more cost effective choice than building either a separate or mobile-specific website or device-dependent app. Content and design are optimised for viewing in a refined space and built to adjust to any screen size.

I code to W3C standards using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript to ensure usability, accessibility and that your site will be cross-browser compatible. 

As part of the website package I manage all the details – including domain name registration, hosting, SSL certification, and the provision of email facilities on shared or dedicated servers. Read more about my support services.

Wordpress/CMS

WordPress/CMS

The websites I design and build are coded from scratch or built using bespoke themes for industry-standard content management systems such as WordPress. All themes are hand-coded using standards compliant HTML5 and CSS3.

I will also add new functiontionality to an existing content managed site sourcing appropriate third-party plugins where required.

I can provide 1:1 training sessions on how to get the most out of your WordPress website and all my CMS websites come with an instructions pack to get you started.

I can help you choose the right eCommerce platform for your business and budget. I will apply your current branding, or develop a completely new identity, and help you choose and set up a payment gateway.

My service includes implementing complex pricing and shipping systems, setting up processes like returns and cancellations and enabling promotion and reporting tools to enhance sales and measure performance – to help improve your customers’ experience. 

I will integrate your eCommerce platform with CRM tools and work with back-end web programmers where necessary to build advanced custom function.

Photographer websites

Photographer websites

I build photographer and artist websites using content management systems so that you can manage and add to your portfolio over time, or I offer hand-coded designs to give your site a bespoke look to really set your work apart. This type of service is ideal for studios and wedding and events photographers.

If you are thinking about selling your work I can recommend and implement the right plugins to support capabilities like viewing public and private galleries, photo proofing, watermarking, album pre-registration, sales and payments, sharing over social media and invoicing and sales reporting.
