Shopfront websites are small, fast, responsive (adapts to all screen sizes) sites for small businesses that immediately give your visitors all the information they need to find you, contact you and discover what you do. The designs are simple yet eye catching. There is a bespoke image of your shop, holiday home, premises or product which is a combination of photograph and hand drawing.
With a shopfront website, when you click on each item on the menu a small page pops up. These can contain descriptions, links, pricing tables, google maps, contact forms, photo galleries, etc. Whatever you may need.
Shopfront websites are designed to make the process of getting online or updating your site as straightforward as possible. If you need a fantastic website quickly I can help you.
These have slowly evolved over the years. I hope that they all have a slightly 'homemade' feel. Each one being as different as the client is. They have been made using, variously, WordPress, templates and handwritten html/css.
This is three years old and it hasn't dated.
Sylvie Garvey wanted a website that was clean, clear and that would feel approachable. This was hand-coded by me without a template, it is responsive - looking good on any screen size. I designed the logo as well.
BCKR are a small team who help lawyers to develop their careers. They wanted a new professional and stylish website. It also needed to send out automated emails, have some pages password protected for members, and be updated by the team themselves as they posted jobs, events and news articles. We chose a WordPress site and used the Stockholm theme.
This was one of my first websites. The images scroll and show up in the centre block when touched to show a larger view. The little dots down the side turn pink to show which image is being viewed. A CV pops up, as well as more information about each word in the middle. A really great little site with lots of interactive features.
I have been making websites for the last 6 years. I am self taught, having learnt most of what I know from the generosity of knowledge on the internet. Being a maker rather than a programmer, I specialise in creating unique designs for each client whilst at the same time ensuring that their websites work perfectly on all screen sizes and browsers as well as being clear and easy to use.
I live with my daughter in London where I was born.
