Would you like to see what I could do for your business?
Most website designers work by emailing backwards and forwards with you for changes and design progressions to your website – you will most likely never speak to them, let alone meet them!
This process tends to be time-consuming, inefficient and frustrating as design ideas are often difficult to explain on an email and usually need to be seen and tried to know which options are best.
I do things differently.
I work with you in real-time online and do the website changes and building as we go in front of your eyes. You can ask me to try ideas in the moment, so you can clearly see the different options and make informed and efficient decisions. I then go and implement all the design changes so you are not waiting around for me to do the technical stuff.
All of my clients so far have loved this approach – they get fast and effective service as well as the opportunity to try out the many different ideas that they have. They know I will do all of the time-consuming work behind the scenes, and that their time with me is both fun and inspiring, as they watch their website develop and grow into their vision.
Below are just a few examples of projects I have recently worked on.
website design :: video optimization
ASKEW WEALTH CONSULTANCY
Jeremy Askew is a highly successful financial adviser with a portfolio of businesses. In Askew Wealth Consultancy, he and his team advise the 1% on how to invest their wealth for best returns.

Impressive website to act as marketing asset
Seamless video transitions and playback quality on all devices
Jeremy wanted a unique website that would impress his prospective clients and immediately get his message across – that expert assistance can make for a great effect. He imagined a minimal interface with a custom-made video on each screen – and nothing else.
The project would also have to be coordinated with an outside video production company hired to make the required assets.
Can I be honest? When I’ve first heard this idea, I was terrified. I knew that making such a website would require a lot of delicate work as full screen videos are notoriously difficult to work with. But I had to stay faithful to Jeremy’s vision, so I put my tail in gear and asked for the contact details of the production team.
I made sure to be present during the initial vision meeting with the video production team to talk about the requirements. This paid off later when we run into a snafu with the interview file as it was subtitled with an error!
I have also hired a trusted colleague with more experience with video embeds and made good use of his time to optimise the automated playback for all screens. We have also set up a full-screen playback experience for the interview on the About page.
website design :: social optimization
Sue Leschen is a powerhouse lawyer-linguist specialising in legal and business French interpreting and translation. She is also a tireless mentor and is registered with numerous professional bodies.

Increase in the numbers of the website visitors, more mentoring hours booked per week
Increased engagement on social media
Here are two facts about Sue – she is a prolific presenter and has amassed a lot of accolades. This means that we had a lot of material for the website and all this material had to be presented in varied ways to keep the attention of her website viewers.
I immediately thought that we’ll have to make a lot of lists: of professional memberships, recent publications, services, courses… Sue needed a real flagship website to showcase her many talents. Sue also wanted to have complete control over what happens – and with good reason, as she is an industry heavyweight, her words are scrutinized and must be perfect.
Sue was the perfect candidate for my working process, so I asked her for the relevant bits of her professional records and made an appointment with her to go over the website. We then made the website together, page by page, in a series of weekly meetings.
After the website was done, Sue wanted all her social media profiles to match, so I have helped her optimise her LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to attract more visitors and give justice to her expertise.

SEE YOU IN ROME
Luciana Miari is an experienced tour guide in Rome, Italy. After many years working for others, she decided to open her own business providing unique experiences to discerning travellers.
In Rome, she knows everybody who is anybody ans is the person to come to arrange an after-hours museum visit or a surprise proposal with music and a photographer.
If you’re curious about Luciana, you can take a look at her website. Or you can book your consultation with me straight away to see what I can do for you.
Increase in the numbers of the website visitors, more sign ups to the mailing list
Improved social media engagement
Luciana lives and breathes Rome but she self-admittedly knows nothing about websites and marketing. It was challenging for her to describe her vision and it was quite clear she would welcome more advice on how to translate her unique style into a website.
Luciana was very clear in that she wanted me to be as proactive as possible and I knew I was going to relish the challenge.
I have prepared the first design mock-up and, after receiving Luciana’s feedback, got to work setting up the website. We have then gone over each page together several times to make sure everything .
Once the website was live, we sat down to prepare a strategy for her marketing. Luciana was already active on social media, so I’ve made sure to optimise all her profiles and we’ve made a battleplan together on how she was going to market her services.
