Whether you need a website of your own, or you're looking for an experienced Drupal developer to join your web team, I can help.
What are you looking for ?
I am a web developer and Drupal specialist based in Brighton, UK.
In addition to freelance Drupal development and consulting, I also build first-class websites. I offer a range of digital services including web design, site building & E-commerce, digital marketing, web hosting and technical support.
Today’s business owners need to be in full control of their website. That’s why I create sites with a modern, open-source content management system such as Drupal or WordPress.
Combined with an intuitive design, the power of a modern CMS allows us to create a website or online shop that’s easy to manage while keeping your users entertained and engaged.
You have a story to tell. Nowadays there are more and more places to tell it, so how do you know which channels are the best for your business?
The modern approach to digital marketing is to talk to your users wherever they are. I cover the basics like search engine optimisation (SEO), as well as social media and online marketplaces.
You have your website, but how do people get to it? How the web works is a mystery for many people, most of whom simply want the technology to work.
I take the pain out of the web by handling all of the technical details. Not only that, I can offer ongoing support to ensure everything runs smoothly—forever.
I worked for over seven years at Precedent, a Top 20 UK digital agency. While there I collaborated on many interesting and varied projects, such as The Wildlife Trusts, Anthony Nolan, Parkinson's UK and Moorfields Eye Hospital.
Having now left the agency life, I am looking for new opportunities to work on exciting projects. If you need an experienced Drupal developer to work on a project with your team, check out my credentials and then get in touch.
Having worked at a top 20 UK digital agency for almost a decade, with organisations such as The Wildlife Trusts, Anthony Nolan, Parkinson's UK and Moorfields Eye Hospital, I know a thing or two about what makes a website successful.
There's more to it than flashy designs and keywords—understanding your business is paramount. We work together to develop your digital strategy and build a website that makes the best use of your channels: web, mobile, social media—we'll cover them all.
From the very beginning I work closely to understand your business, tailoring a plan to suit your needs and budget. Through my network of carefully selected partners I can provide the assurance that your project will have the expertise it requires. Plus, you're in the loop every step of the way, so you always know what's going on.
We start by getting together to discuss the project aims and what you expect from the work. Next we agree how we'll measure success, and then plan the next steps.
Research characterises this part of the process, leading us to the best approach in respect to your goals. We define the scope, catalogue your requirements, and build the project strategy.
Time to get creative. Using what we have learned, we now begin defining the solution, testing ideas and designs, ensuring that each feature has a purpose in alignment with the project objectives.
Now we flesh out the solution, setting up the content management system and building any bespoke features. Thorough testing and consistent feedback ensures it is shaping up as you expect.
Once ready I will show you how it works, and can even offer assistance with content entry if required. Continued testing ensures everything proceeds smoothly, all the way up to the big launch.
You'll be fully supported after launch too. A variety of hosting and support packages are available to help keep your site in top condition, optimised for search, and ahead of the competition.
Building exciting brands and engaging web solutions
Custom apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry
Getting in front of your audience with SEO and multi-channel marketing
High performance hosting, technical expertise, and support when you need it
My websites are packed with all of the cutting edge technology users now expect from the modern web. They are fully responsive and mobile-ready—meaning you can be sure of reaching all of your users with ease, whatever device they’re using.
Working primarily with the popular open-source Drupal CMS, you get a purpose-built website that you can easily manage yourself—no knowledge of HTML is required. Additionally, Drupal is a mature platform supported by a large community of contributors, and you own the website code so you never have to worry about being locked into a proprietary solution.
Whether you need single-product sales website or a full E-commerce solution, I can build what you need.
With more and more people using a smartphone or tablet to access their online services, users are expecting a quicker and more convenient experience while on the go, or even watching TV. Mobile apps are convenient way for your users to access your products or services with the constraints of the web.
I can design and build you custom apps for all major mobile platforms, including Apple iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry.
Reaching out to, and being found by, your customers is central to the success of your business. With the recent boom in popularity of social networks there are an increasingly large number of channels you need to keep on top of, and an even bigger need to stand out from the crowd.
In addition to traditional methods of internet marketing, such as optimising your website for search engines, I help you take advantage of new opportunities to interface with your users. Exposure in channels offered by social media networks Facebook and Twitter, as well as online marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon, ensure the widest possible coverage of your brand and campaign.
Often overlooked and undervalued, hosting is an important part of the online game. In fact choosing the right hosting provider is almost as important as choosing the right people to build your website in the first place.
Having worked extensively with a variety of hosts over the years I have seen the best and the worst, and understand what makes the difference between success and failure. That is why I offer a range of hosting solutions to suit all requirements.
Not only do I take care of all the technical details, and can guide you through the whole process, I also offer a range of support packages to help keep your site secure and up-to-date, as well as provide you with extra development time when you need it.
