"Helping small businesses grow"


I am passionate about the web and building a product that is intuitive, user-friendly and customer focused.

 

I take pride in helping small startups grow and in return provide value to their growing business online.

 


My Strategy

KISS
Keep It Simple, Stupid!

I believe in creating websites that are clean and simple with an easy to follow information architecture.

Goal Oriented

Creating a website that is focused around your target audience. This helps in shaping the design and functionality towards meeting those goals.

Site Visibility

A good website needs to be found. Investing time and energy in Search Engine Optimisation can boost visitor numbers and provide a high profile.

Agile
Project Management

Allowing for better project management from start to finish to achieve effective end results that best meets client needs.

Process

information gathering

INFORMATION
GATHERING

My process begins with understanding the industry, competition, project scope, the goal and the target audience.

planning

PLANNING & RESEARCH

With the information in hand, I like to plan what the product would look like. This involves researching frameworks, technologies, software & resources.

information architecture

INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

Creation of site map, navigation structure and gathering keyword rich content and imagery.

sketching

SKETCH

The idea is to keep my sketches fast and rough with less focus on design aesthetics and more on rapid formulation of ideas, followed by wireframes for finer details.

mockup

MOCKUP

The sketches come into life in high-fidelity mockups, presented for feedback.

code

CODE

The mockups get turned into a functioning website using code that complies to current web standards, maximizing functionality, as well as accessibility.

testing

TESTING & DELIVERY

Focusing on testing to ensure the website performs as expected, along with SEO optimisation and cross-browser testing.

ongoing maintenance and support

MAINTENANCE

No website is ever finished. Ongoing maintenance is important to support it and keep the content alive.
