Over the years my job titles have included: Web Designer, Web Developer, Applications Developer, Web Master, Graphic Designer, Flash Developer, Instructional Designer (creating e-learning tools using Flash), Graphical User Interface Designer, Software Designer, Database Administrator. Some have been full times jobs and some have been short-term contracts. Clients I have worked for include, GE Services, Lloyds TSB, Supreme Pet Foods, Marks & Spencer, Landmark, Ordnance Survey, FAST, Southamptom PCT and many more. I have a wealth of experience and here are some of the services I offer from as little as 25 per hour:

Web Design & Development

I don't use Dreamweaver or Front page to build web sites, each page is individually hand-coded and I programme in a modern modular, object oriented way, to reduce code, duplication and errors. All my professional web sites are W3C compliant, which means that they not only look like "Ferraris" they are "Ferraris" under the hood as well. W3C - the World Wide Web Consortium was set up by the World leaders in the computer industry (members include IBM, Microsoft and Apple) its mission "To lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the Web". It not only means that the code I use is valid, but that it should work across all internet browsers, so if your customer likes to use Opera, the web site will be perfect and they will not get a "sorry we don't support your browser" message which some web developers have started to do! I also follow the W3C guidelines on accessibility, which means that people with disabilities can also use your web site. W3C compliance is the standard for big business and government web sites, why shouldn't it be the standard for yours?
New small business web design package: For those customers wanting a small but perfectly formed web presence, I'm now able to offer a small business package of 100 for a home page and contact page with a form, additional pages are charged at 25 each and can always be added at a later date. This will include two designs to choose from but does not include additional artwork or logo design or additional expenses such as stock photography. If you want to register your web presence for 100, please let me know.
Web design proforma: If you are interested in a no obligation quote for your website, please download and complete the design proforma. Details of where to send it are on the form.

Graphic and Logo Design

As a regular contributor to istock, one of the world's leading image libraries, I am familiar with all types of graphic and logo design, for print and for web. I am familiar with resolution and copyright issues on images and can either create or source reasonably priced images for your site without you having to worry about copyright issues. Because I work by the hour, I am quite willing to take on small projects, such as creating button sets and small bespoke images if you want to create your own web site.

Flash & other web programming

If you would like a Flash game, animation or navigation for your web site please contact me to discuss. Alternatively I have also created online programs such as a lunar calendar and a tarot deck using technologies such as PHP and javascript. If you want something a bit different for your web site or have an idea but don't know how to make it a reality, please let me know.

IT Training

If you are interested in creating your own web sites or images, or want to learn how to update your web site, or even how to get the best out of Microsoft Office, then let me know as I'm able to provide direct one to one training, for you or your employees.

Microsoft Office

Do you want to get the best out of Word or Excel, set up templates or Macros for your headed letters, invoices, delivery notes etc? then let me know as I'm expert in Office development, including advanced Excel features and bespoke Access databases.
Please contact me in the first instance to discuss your requirements, and for a free, no obligation quote or estimate. I will also consider part exchange or barter for my services.
