About me

Confused by all the hype and jargon? Let me guide you through the web design maze.

There is a never ending stream of new platforms and "flavour of the month" technologies that can muddy your choice of designer and site provider

Your problems solved

Define what you need, Are you unclear on the best way to tackle a problem?

I have used many platforms to solve business problems. I can find the simplest and most cost effective way to provide the solution you need.

Avoid overkill solutions.

If you need a site up quickly, using a popular platform such as WordPress and a standard theme, can get you up and running in a few weeks.

Dont forget your customers.

Often overlooked is checking out the competition when starting or upgrading a site.

Why use a freelancer?

Freelancers will give you impartial advice. I do not sponsor any particular technology. The best, simplest solution will be offered without any hard sell or bias.

What will I get?

First a proposal sets out a plan for the project. Closely followed by a contract. The contract sets out exactly what you are getting, when and for how much. A project timeline along with milestones is usually included. The contract prevents either party from "moving the goal posts" and ensures a smooth process.

First steps?

Contact me with your idea or problem. I can give you an idea of the potential time involved and the best solution. Next we would meet so that I can draw up a more detailed proposal.

You need a plan!

Would you build a house without a plan? Web sites also need a plan to ensure that your aims are met and that you are not wasting money. Creating a proposal for a new site or upgrade is an art in itself. There is a complex set of parameters that need to be addressed. You need someone who is highly educated and knows how to "sell" a project. Often the proposal is used to obtain finance. I have a BSc and a Masters degree so have written to a very high standard. I have also written many successful business plans.
