I'm a web designer & developer based in Oxfordshire, UK. I have a passion for web design and love to create for web and mobile devices. I founded packet ECHO in 2010, to bring all of my work together under one roof.
I have a Bachelors degree in Biochemistry and a Masters degree in Computer Science, so what am I doing creating websites? Good question, I think that everyone needs an outlet to express their artistic side ....and mine is web design.
If you like what you see here, and you’re in need of a new website, a refresh, or just some advice – drop me a line and let’s get talking.
To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often
Simplicity is the shortest path to a solution
The first thing we will do is to set your objectives – why are you starting this project? Then we need to understand who your target audience is, and find the best ways to reach them. We’ll then be ready to agree on a budget, and define the scope of the project.
With your objectives in place, it’s time to think about how your project will look, and just as importantly, how your users will experience it. I’ll sketch wireframes (simple frameworks/blueprints) to plan the layout of the project, and optimise the user experience (UX).
When you’re happy with the layouts and visuals, I’ll get to work on the code to power your project. I code everything by hand, line-by-line, using the right tools for the job; HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, or whatever is best suited to meet your requirements. If you need to manage the content online, I’ll select an appropriate CMS eg WordPress..
My work doesn’t finish when your project goes live. Using digital analytics we can monitor how visitors are using your site. You’ll discover which sections are most popular, how effective your marketing campaigns are, and how your visitors are finding your site. Over time, this information can help us to evolve and optimise your site.
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new
Whether you have a website that needs updating, a great idea, or just a desire to get online, I can help you make it happen.
I can host your website on our server, at a world-class data center. No hassle, no fuss, nothing to worry about.
Harnessing the power of digital analytics I can assess how visitors interact with your site. Once we've learnt what they're looking for and what they like, I can tailor your site for maximum impact.
If you want to have a go at your own website, but need some advice on how to get started, how to buy a domain, what tools to use, get in touch!
I design to the latest web standards, using HTML5 and CSS3, to create responsive, accesible websites. All of my work will deliver an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices.
I aim to design both, functional & beautiful websites. I will work through as many iterations as we need to deliver on your goals.
