  • Websites

    Bespoke website design

    I began designing websites in 1998 and since then things have changed quite a bit I can tell you. However my ethos when it comes to web design hasn't changed and that is to create sites that not only look attractive but are easy to navigate with a browser able to find what they want within two clicks of their mouse (or taps of there finger).

    Company websites can be enhanced by animated banners produced in Adobe Flash to any requirements including creating entire website in Flash if required. When it comes to data bases and content management systems or indeed anything requiring bespoke programming I have colleagues that I can turn to who are specialists in these fields. Working with these specialists I can provide you with a complete website design package.
