Testimonials and Endorsements:
Over the many years of me doing stuff for other people for money, I have worked with - and continue to work with - a great number of super-duper clients.
I always ask for feedback so I can improve the things I do, and I have also received some blush-tacular testimonials and endorsements. Yes. Have some.
As I mentioned in my recent post: "OMG! It's alive!", this here very website has its own bespoke CMS (Content Management System) for updating portfolio examples, blog posts and all the content on every page.
I'm no PHP programmer, while my friend and colleague Graham (of behinddesign.co.uk) is. And tis he who is to thank for all the PHP wizardry that's going down on my new site. Thanks Graham. Thraham.

- Research, discovery & consultation
- Site map and plan
- Wire framing key pages
- Flat visual designs
- Build of all key pages using HTML & CSS
- PHP programming and CMS integration
- Initial content implementation
- Initial on-page SEO set-up
- Testing, bug fixing and tidying pre-launch
- Jam sandwiches
- Horlicks then nap
