Web Design

I develop client web sites under a ‘Hosting Contract’ arrangement.

Initial web site design and development is charged on a cost only basis and clients are required to enter into a 12 or 24 month site hosting contract.


Content management and additional site development during the contract term is charged at a modest hourly rate.

Client web site themes must meet my personal, ethical and environmental standards.


The Web Design Process

  1. Intro meeting
    Hi, nice to meet you. So you want a web site, tell me more….. I am sure I can assist.
    Ok, so what you need to do first is …..
  2. Design template selection
    Put in the time to choose a deign template that is ‘you’. Remember I can customise the template with your colours and photos to make it even more ‘you’.
  3. Detailed requirements meeting
    Ok, tell me more. What are your ideas on the ‘look and feel’ you want your web site to have? What content have you got and where do you want it.
  4. Info/media request
