I offer a website design-development service which involves listening to your needs and requirements and converting them into a bespoke, fast, mobile-friendly website. My aim is to build great looking, very usable websites that are produced using clean code.

There are three main types of website available, the first is a static site, which means that the content of the pages does not change and these don't have a blog or news section, the second is a CMS (Content Management System) based site, these allow the content to be changed by an administrator via an internet-based control panel, these can easily accommodate a blog or news section, and the third is websites built online using a provider such as Squarespace.

I can build unique websites using all methods, including facilitating for clients on Squarespace.

The CMS based websites I build are usually based on Perch CMS or Perch Runway CMS for bigger sites.

You may ask why I chose to use a relatively unheard of CMS system in Perch rather than Wordpress, Drupal or Jumla, the reasons are:-

  • - It is very easy to integrate into an existing static website, it does not add anything to the code, keeping it very clean
  • - It is well supported and has a very good community around it
  • - It is very easy for clients to use the control panel with its simple structure
  • - It is fast
  • - It is constantly being developed and improved, with regular updates being very easy to install
  • - It requires no special hosting environment

As standard, I like to include an accessibility-policy, cookies-policy, privacy-policy, sitemap and terms of use pages with all websites. With the introduction of GDPR, most of these are required and if not are a good idea to aid inclusivity of all categories of persons.

I offer a labour pack for websites I have built, these can be purchased in blocks of five hours. Once purchased the hours can be used as necessary for maintenance, updates or just site improvements, before any work is started I will give a time allowance to any particular job.
