Modern Website Design

I'm a London-based designer who creates websites that are distinctive and highly functional. None of my websites look the same. Because each client's needs are different.

Take a look at my portfolio. If you are interested in finding out more about my services, why not contact me!

Everything You Need To Know
(and some things you don't)

Now for some jargon. I design websites mainly using Joomla, an extremely popular CMS (content management system) that allows you to update the website yourself.

A number of my sites use responsive design. This means that the website will automatically adapt to display on all types of devices. Like desktops, laptops, ipads, iphones or smart phone. Just like this website!

All Sorts Of Components

My website include many components such as slideshows, galleries, music players, embeds, social network feeds, feedback forms, subscriptions lists (MailChimp) etc - everything you need to make your website fully functional.

I have a broad knowledge of all the latest technologies including responsive design, jquery, HMTL5, Joomla 3.0 - as well as css, php, sql etc. All my sites are W3C validated and tested to be compliant with Internet Explorer (versions 8-10), Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome, iPad, iPhone & Android.

Competitive Pricing

A fully-functioning Joomla site costs around £399. This includes a reasonable amount of design and development. If you wish, I can build a site to an agreed budget. At the end of the job you will be supplied with full access, passwords etc. There are no tie-ins. Though naturally I'm happy to offer you as much on-going support as you need.
