What I've done

I've worked with a wide variety of clients from freelance musicians and photographers, to businesses, charities and churches. I will always tailor the look and feel of your site to your particular needs, and incorporate any ideas or current branding and logos you want to use or come up with something new.

Tim Judson

Tim is a talented folk singer/songwriter who is passionate about communicating. He needed a website that would allow him to keep fans updated with news about his music and upcoming gigs. The website I created combines the earthy feel of Tim's music with a clean and clear design that's really easy to navigate. It allows fans to easily listen to clips of his songs and watch his music videos, and shows his latest tweets on the front page. Because I used the ExpressionEngine content management system Tim has complete control over the content so that he can quickly and easily keep the site up to date.

York Family Mediation Service

York Family Mediation Service offers a service to parents when relationships have broken down. They asked me to completely redesign their website with a clean design allowing them to easily explain their services. The site I created achieves this as well as being responsive, meaning it works really well on mobile and tablet devices. The client can easily update information through the ExpressionEngine content management system.

The Oak Church

The Oak Church is a lively, God centred and community focused church meeting in Farsley, Leeds. They needed their website to be attractive and informative both to church members and those interested in finding out more about the church and it's beliefs. I completely redesigned the site, creating the logo and brand for the church using the oak tree theme. It is essential that the website stays up to date with upcoming events so I integrated an events calendar into the site, and used ExpressionEngine to make it really easy to update with events, information, blogs and images. The church can also upload weekly podcasts of the Sunday talks for streaming or download.

Health and Hope UK

Health and Hope is a charity working to bring health care, education and community development to villages in Myanmar (Burma). They needed a website to explain their work using text and images and keep supporters up to date. I created a responsive site (looks great on mobiles and tablets too), giving the charity a simple brand which is brought to life by the use of large photos and videos. The client is able to post updates in the news section.

Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a UK wide debt counselling charity. Their site receives over 26,000 visits a month, and provides information to a wide variety of audiences, such as potential clients, individuals and churches wanting to support the charity, and potential referral agencies for CAP's services. With this in mind it was essential to build a site that was clear and easy to navigate. As a CAP employee, I set up and developed CAP's new website alongside a wider rebrand of the charity. I continue to manage, update and develop the site alongside my colleague Chris Haldane, keeping it vibrant and engaging. Using the ExpressionEngine content management system, we are able to give access to different people within the charity to keep their areas up to date. I have also developed a shop for the churches involved in CAP's work to purchase resources, which is integrated closely with CAP's bespoke internal systems.

Knotts Mill Country Lodge

Knotts Mill is a guest house in the heart of the beautiful Lake District. They needed a new website to attract guests by really showing what they had to offer. I created a vibrant site that uses large eye catching images of the guest house and surrounding area. The client wanted to keep their old logo for consistency, and I was able to use, develop and modernise the logo and brand to give the site an up to date feel.

Medsin

Medsin is a national student network and charity tackling global and local health inequalities through education, advocacy and community action. They operate through ‘branches’ in universities all over the UK and it was essential that their website allowed these branches to easily be able to access and update their own news, events and blogs. I designed the site with this functionality, and members can also register and contribute content to the site, as well as book into upcoming conferences. I built a member database into the site, and Medsin can manage their 1600+ active members through this.

Reflect Pregnancy Crisis

Reflect is a York and Harrogate based charity providing pregnancy support. They needed a website to inform potential clients and supporters about what the charity offers and how they can get in touch. I created a site with a clean design, and used simple but effective images to represent the different services the charity provides, as the use of photos was not appropriate to the sensitive nature of the charity's work.

Jonathan Joslin Photography

Jonathan is a wedding photographer in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. His main requirement for his new site was to attract new clients through clearly displaying a wide selection of his work, as well as relevant pricing and contact information. I developed a gallery that makes it really easy for visitors to flick through his work, and a logo that reflects the stylish and contemporary nature of his photography.
