Digital design is both a creative art and a science. A good web designer requires creativity and artistic flair built on a logical foundation of solid design principles and technical know-how.

Web design — w3c compliant and accessible, web application development, ecommerce solutions, database integration and CMS.

I began my career in the graphics industry way back in 1983 working for several graphic design agencies. As a graphics specialist I covered every aspect of design, visualising and production, working on corporate identities, branding, brochures, advertising and packaging.
In 1996 I turned my design skills to specialise in web design and development, working on a wide spectrum of projects for a range of clients, both creative agencies and direct to the client.
This depth of experience makes a difference. Having produced hundreds of websites and worked on many blue-chip brands my approach produces stunning results quicker and easier — saving you time and money.
Don't just focus on the quality of my graphic design skills. I believe quality web design goes beyond stunning good looks; my designs harness accessibility, usability and technology and go beyond the boundaries of your site to make it a success.
Every site I design is the optimal blend of craftsmanship and technology with 35 years of design experience that gives me the tools to put this philosophy into stunning effect.
Most freelance web designers cannot offer such depth of quality or range of services.
I am an expert in web standards, usability and accessibility. w3c web standards go beyond just successful validation of code by providing a strong foundation for websites that run faster, are search engine friendly, accessible to any platform, audience or media and are more future proof. I am proud to build all my projects to be w3c web standards compliant.
Beware large web agencies and cheap freelancers that don't conduct usability testing — usability is, and should be, invisible. However, poor usability will show up down the road in poor conversion rates.
