Web Design

I have been web designer for over 25 years, collaborating with clients in Australia and the United Kingdom. Now I mostly concentrate in local small businesses in Manchester, UK.

It started as a hobby in the early days of dialup internet. Back then, it was a case of many animated gifs and audio background files. Now it’s a bit more tasteful. His sites started in the days with raw HTML coding. These days, however, is CMS WordPress design.

Since then, I created Windows office-based software (most well-known was Newsletter Publisher). UI and layout were the most intriguing elements. 

Here is a Website Overview I Made for a Local Golf Course

This site had a significant overhaul from what was there before. It hadn’t been designed for the end-user in mind. The menu was overpowering with information in many locations.

That was the main problem that I had to fix. I went about reorganizing the main top menus before looking through the pages. It was a case of “what would golfers want to do?” I chose to break the menu to promote the members from the more promotional campaign of joining the club.

The design I felt should be a modern yet traditional style. All images are clean with white borders. Traditions are incredibly important. The font was to be clean as well, with colors taken from the logo. The prominent color was dark green with dark blue for the titles.

I worked closely for three months with my contact at the club. We went back and forth with what the club wanted to highlight to their customers.

Graphic Design

As long as I’ve made websites, the graphics have gone hand in hand. The graphics have always taken my focus dearly.

I’ve done many projects over the years, and the visual side has always been the best part. Things I’ve made include:

  • Websites
  • Windows software
  • Android software
  • Logos & banners
  • Book covers

Based in Worsley, Eccles, and Manchester area, I design websites for clients in small businesses and start-up companies. I’ve been doing this for close to 25 years.

I have simple beliefs in design, and those must not compromise your SEO but still make your site pleasant to your potential customers. 


The pricing is competitive and is always open to discussion. Base rates start from around £300 for the first 3 months.

Once it is made, the site is not finished and needs updates. If you send me the details, then I can update your site. After the first 3 months, I charge a per-hour cost of £20.


I understand that the requirement of internet presence is not a massive requirement for every company, and that’s where I can help in stepping in to take the headache away and build great websites.

Don’t worry about any writing you have for the site. After writing and publishing many books, I have a bit of experience in proofing text.

If you like what you see, then send me a message. I would love to get to know you and your plans.
