I enjoy every step involved in making a new website, taking pride in open, friendly communication from start to finish:
- Establish the aims of the project
- Discover the users’ needs
- Plan the information architecture
- Produce sketches and wireframes
- Design a unique look and feel
- Build site using real content, not dummy text
- Test with real users
- Launch site to professional web hosting
- Support and maintain site
Everyone brings different needs and approaches to web projects, and it’s always rewarding to guide these towards a finished product which everyone is pleased with.
“…always at the end of an email for help now that he has handed over the content management system.”
I’ll make it easy to find out if we’re the right match for your project.
“…thank you for all your help in providing the info that we needed to get to a decision. I thought you were very honest in your approach, and very collaborative, and I really appreciated that. I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone else as well on the basis of our interactions.”
The fully responsive design was achieved using the powerful Susy framework, which is currently my preferred toolkit for clean, robust CSS layouts.
The minimal, modern design is balanced with typography that adds a classic look and feel - all supported by full content management control over pages, background photos, concert dates, gallery images and video clips.
“You have made a daunting process very straightforward and accessible!”
Special features include an interactive photo gallery combined with Google Maps and a dynamic concert diary page. The live launch in December 2011 was coordinated with the Tokyo based developer of the Japanese-language website.
“Stunning work on my new website by Rob has wowed lots of people in and out of the UK.”
The website is made up of static HTML pages which, for small websites requiring occasional updates, is often preferable to a full content management system.
“…I cannot recommend Rob highly enough. He built my site exactly to the brief I provided, and incorporated the logo designed by someone else into a whole colour system and style for the site. He provided a timeline for when all the work was to be completed and stayed within this, completing the work early. He is always at the end of an email for help now that he has handed over the content management system. Rob is professional, and comes up with quick and creative solutions to new ideas. Thanks Rob!”

“Rob has the rare ability to make the complex simple and easy to understand. He worked efficiently, effectively and cheerfully, making great suggestions, giving me the confidence to make changes and stepping in when I got stuck. Rob is in a different league from other website designers with whom I have worked; I recommend Rob most highly!”
