Responsive web design icon
  • Responsive web design caters for all platforms from OSX and iOS on Apple devices to Android in its various forms to Microsoft Windows old and new and absolutely Linux operating systems like Ubuntu.

  • Responsive web design when implemented correctly leads to a better experience on all devices, it takes an attention to detail and the ability to work with a number of techniques to do this well.

  • Expectations are higher and having a dedicated mobile site is not the done thing, this should be a graceful expectation and very much is the norm.

  • Following the guidance of the web industry responsive web design is the done thing, not supporting various devices and form factors is breaking a trend and an unwritten standard.

WordPress development

I have been developing WordPress powered web sites since 2009 and can offer both plugin and theme development.

I've built popular communities used by thousands and contributed learning articles to the area.

  • A community site allows your audience to connect with your content and each other.

  • Community sites can function fantastically for niche subjects like cookery classes, shared learning hubs, media outlets and events.

  • Social network sites offer a level engagement beyond the scope of presentational type content, it can be a really fun and dynamic place.

  • Enhancements like online commerce and media can be integrated for your community members.

This can be an articulate and fulfilling process in which I have the ability to deliver on many types of projects and functionality.

  • When I work on bespoke projects whether it's WordPress, CodeIgniter or Angular I maintain the legacy aspects of your project by writing reusable code when possible.

  • You'll get something that will be built with style and lays the foundation of your own platform.

Start your project

Over 5 steps you can send me an overview of your project.

Basics

Starting a new project with me begins with my advanced project form. This is my advanced project form that customers can provide information over 5 steps. The first step is to outline and summarise the basic details of the project, identifying your budget, timeframes and project type.

Details

I ask you to supply a more detailed description of your project and any job details you may have for me.

Supply projects files

Relevant project files like brand assets and documentation can be supplied in step 3 through my secure upload form.

People

I have built my system to work with both individuals and teams, let me know of any other members.

Account

Lastly new customers are asked to confirm account information which will be used going forward.

Next steps

When your project has been received a new account will be created for you to login. From here you can pay your first invoice and begin to engage with how the project is developing.

Review

The pre-production checklist is reviewed and subject to approval the next steps will be taken.

A potential soft launch to a limited number of users is also available.

Take off!

Any holding pages will be removed and your freshly developed site will now be moved into production, we can even have a launch party.

Site usage

In the first days after launch I'll be looking at immediate areas of concern and improvement, this will be a maintained short list and added to your account.
