    Trying to decide between WordPress and Squarespace, and wondering which is better from a web design perspective? You’re not alone.

    One of my recent projects was to help a web-based software company to communicate about their service better online. When Festival Systems got in touch to ask if I could help improve their website, I said ‘Hell, yeah!’ because I could see right away that they were really great at making incredibly powerful and useful software, […]

    This week I have been upgrading a client’s site to use a responsive design template, in order to make the site mobile- and tablet-friendly.

    My latest client WordPress site may look clean & simple, but there’s a lot under the hood. Visual Seating is a new service which offers theatre-goers the ability to ‘test-drive’ seats before booking tickets. They can click on any seat in the theatre’s seating plan, and see a real photographic view of the stage from […]

    What better way to make a fresh start in the new year than to freshen up my website. I have been so busy with clients that I haven’t had a chance to do it in a while, but I set aside the afternoon today and created a new Portfolio page to highlight some of my […]

I like the clean lines and the way the blue and white make the photos really pop off the page. This project was another collaboration with the rather wonderful Katrina Dixon a.k.a. The Marketing […]
