When I’m not wincing at referring to myself in the third-person, I enjoy creating WordPress themes, branding and digital solutions for my clients.
In a nutshell, I was born on the same day Pac-Man was released. Since then, I graduated from the University of Lincoln with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design and have now clocked-up 13 years of experience, undertaking projects across a wide range of disciplines.
Professional experience aside, I’m always keeping myself updated with ever-changing web development techniques, and use them within my projects wherever pertinent.
Skills to pay the bills
- Responsive web design and front-end development for multiple devices using HTML5, CSS3/LESS and jQuery.
- Bespoke WordPress theme development and support.
- UI and visual design using Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop, Illustrator, et al.
Where I work
Most of my work is carried out remotely from my home office in Huddersfield. Although humble, it allows for a flexible approach and means less overheads are reflected in my invoices.
Need an extra pair of hands? Providing you’re local to me (as in Manchester, Leeds and the West Yorkshire area), I occasionally offer my expertise to organisations and digital agencies and can work on your project in-house…
Freelance Web Designer
Going beyond the aesthetics, I create user-friendly and responsive websites that communicate with clarity.
Responsive Web Design
Often referred to as mobile web design, I offer front-end development with consideration for iOS and Android devices, plus modern desktop browsers.
With roots in graphic design, I can tackle most digital marketing needs including HTML emails, infographics, banners, PPC campaigns and landing pages.
There are no magic tricks that will allow you to reach Google’s top spot overnight. That said, I use ethical practices to help your site gain search engine visibility, which can lead to increased traffic and conversion rates.
Domains & Hosting
For clients looking for a hosting provider, I can assist with selecting the right web hosting package, account migration and domain name registration.
WordPress development, bespoke theme design and support for the world’s most popular content management system.
From concept to launch, I design and build WordPress themes from the ground up, providing an easy-to-use and scalable CMS that will put you in control of your site.
Need to add extra functionality to your WordPress theme? I can help with WordPress theme modification, installation, repair and maintenance.
HTML to WordPress
In most cases, I can convert and migrate static, HTML websites to fully-fledged WordPress themes.
If you’re particularly technophobic, I can provide content management training (or even manage your content for you).
Branding & Print
With consideration for both digital and printed media, I deliver consistent and memorable brands that set the right tone and stand out.
Logos & Branding
Focussing on connecting with your intended audience, I create distinct brands, corporate identity systems and logo designs that reflect your business values.
Despite the uptake in digital media, print is alive and well, and provides a tangible approach to communicating your latest campaign — from business cards and mailshots through to packaging and large-format banners and displays.
With experience in designing layouts and covers for magazines, brochures and newsletters, I can produce high quality artwork to print-ready standards.
Working with clients throughout the UK, and as far afield as the US, Canada and Singapore, distance isn’t much of an issue…
