John came to me because he needed to bring his website into the 21st century. It wasn't mobile friendly and had very little content but after a couple of meetings, we decided on the best way to get his website up and running so he could then start on promotion. We decided on a clean and simple look which enables his customers to see two key points, (a) contact details and (b) industry standards to which he adheres to. An easy to use CMS was included as standard and nearly every part of the website is editable. It is mobile & SEO friendly meaning more customers will be able to find and view the site and contact is available via phone number/email or by filling in the built-in webform.
The gardening project needed a new site asap and the brief was short. They needed something quick and simple that allowed them to upload photos of their latest work, provide information about the types of jobs they undertake, show their contact details and have the abliity to add/edit customer testimonials. After a discussion, we decided that a one page site was entirely suitable for this with photos being used as a backdrop for the section headers with testimonials scattered in-between the sections but different enough to stand out. The site is also fully responsive for mobiles and tablets.
This website was actually an update of one I had previously built 6 years ago which was showing signs of aging. The new one is fully responsive across different devices and allows the charity to update any section of the site and to post news items. Not only that, the site is multi-user enabled and with select permissions allows the clients to actually post news themseves which is an awesome way to get clients interacting rather than just provding stories for someone else to upload. I managed this website and the previous one since 2010.
I designed and built this content managed website to replace the previous one which was becoming dated and needed a revamp to reflect the charities new colour scheme and to coincide with the launch of a new residential arm to the business. The new site was responsive so worked across multiple devices and featured a directory of resources for people needing help with mental or physical health issues. A news section allowed staff at the chairty to broadcast the latest goings on and an updatable events page allowed them to add/edit/delete events. I fully managed this site for avout 5 years and offered support to the staff using it.
I've worked on various sites over the years including a primary school, a corporate finance company and a renowned London psychotherapist. My first sites were built with Umbraco, a c#/ASP based CMS, then I moved to Drupal 7, briefly to Wordpress and then more recently to Processwire CMS which I've been very happy with for the last year. I've found this to be the easiest to use CMS so far and my clients have no problems getting familiar with editing their own content.
I have also worked on a consultancy basis teaching responsive web design techniques to a business owner in London who make websites esclusively for hotels across the UK.
