Websites; big ones, small ones, some as big as your head.*
As a freelance web developer based in the city of Brighton & Hove, specialising in WordPress, I can work with you or for you to create beautiful, functional, feature-rich websites quickly & efficiently; from a simple one page presence like this site that you’re viewing, to complex, international, multi-lingual entities complete with bells, whistles and eyebrows.
I’ve been working in the digital arena since 1994 and have a wealth of experience and a broad range of related skills. I use my resources & know-how to produce engaging sites on any scale, and not being a “proper” geek I can speak your language. Get in touch now to find out how I can help you.
One of 4 sites built for the talent agency EmptageHallett, updating their existing offerings that showcase their voiceover and acting talent. Working with nomoredesign and 2UpFront, this site has some fun little touches, an advanced search feature, a faceted results filter and a customised MP3 player for their client’s showreels.
Running writerly courses for the right kind of writer, BookBound needed a calm and engaging website to showcase their courses. I worked with nomoredesign to create a clear and calm website which is both simple for the admins to manage, and easy for visitors to navigate and use.
Local charity Brighton & Hove Arts Council needed a new site to showcase their work with the local community and to raise their profile and membership numbers. Working with their team and a simple one page design brief I extrapolated from this to create an engaging site for them which is both simple for them to administer, and is easy for visitors to find their way around.
Working with Think Learning to rebuild the Ocean Technology Groups storefront, selling their maritime training courses, leveraging WooCommerce with a Totara LMS integration with an SSO solution and the Divi page builder for their non-shop pages. The complex technicalities were capably handled by Think Learnings in-house expertise leaving me to style up the theme.
Working with AKQA alongside their lead developer I helped create this site for the refugee charity Choose Love. We developed a suite of reusable Divi components, many heavily modified to give them the functionality that they needed, and to allow them to easily integrate their 3rd party donation, petition and subscription APIs.
After many years as a successful wedding photographer Sara decided to branch out in a new direction as an artist. She asked me to build her a new site to showcase her new talents and together we came up with a new look website that allows her artwork to take center stage.
Cyprus Villa Retreats’ original site had grown in an ad-hoc fashion. To update and unify the look and feel, provide a simple way for their content editors to work and to integrate with their Checkfront sales engine I worked with JooJoo Creative to build them a site that utilises a bespoke set of page-building blocks ensuring a consistent style, and that is user friendly from both the front- and back-end.
Cinecity deliver a year-round programme of film and moving image events, and present the annual Brighton Film Festival. After re-building their site for them in 2012 I was asked to bring it up to date in 2018, working with their programme designer Keely at 6970design we styled it to closely match their printed material, and made it more user, and admin friendly.
With a new logo, and assets prepared by Swash & Fold, I worked with the lovely Sara to design & develop a new responsive theme bringing a fresh look and feel to her popular wedding photography site, with the focus on her strong portfolio and engaging personality.
