Making better websites for small businesses, brands and individuals.
I specialise in web design for small businesses having built two successful websites for my own small ski chalet company. The success of my business relied on punching above its weight online to attract customers. I understand the importance of having a site that is well-referenced and provides the information your potential customers are searching for.
If you are planning a new business, blog or hobby, need an online presence for an existing business or want to refresh an existing website get in touch. I can help you show your best side online. Your website is your business’s window to the world. Let’s make it work for you.
Reliable Web Hosting & Support
As a small business owner, you have a million jobs to do and don’t have time to waste if your website goes down. I offer stress-free hosting (and domain name registration) with ongoing technical assistance and advice. I provide a friendly, knowledgeable voice at the end of the phone saving you hours navigating a soulless call centre. I will answer all questions, explaining in plain English.
My preferred platform is WordPress. WordPress offers a secure, flexible, user-friendly interface that gives you control over the content of your sites. WordPress is also widely regarded as the best platform for creating websites with excellent search engine optimisation.
Some of my work to date
Showcasing a new magazine in the 3 Valleys.
The Guide is a new magazine showcasing the best writing, photography and companies in the 3 Valleys, the biggest ski resort in the French Alps. The editorial team asked me to build them a platform that did justice to the glossy magazine they had produced. They also needed a flexible content management system that would allow them to grow and develop the magazine online.

The Boot Lab Ski Test Showcase
Bright platform for the best skis in Meribel & Courchevel.
The Boot Lab is a market leader in ski boot-fitting in the 3 Valleys ski area. Owners Gav and Tom wanted a better platform to showcase their ski testing range for the 2018/19 winter season. Working with their existing brand identity I built a colourful and bold site.
The ability to update the site for future seasons was vital so in addition to the client facing aspect, the back office systems were equally important. I built an intuitive content management system to allow them to easily update their range of test skis for seasons to come.
