Recent work

Mental Health Learning Ltd.

This 20+ page website was 100 hours work from start to launch. I started with a Creative Brief and Content Plan, laid out the design, completed picture selection, wrote bridging text and headlines, then built the finished site all to time and budget. On completion, I was delighted to receive these kind words from the client: “I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it... Thank you so much for putting it all together.” – Alice Newton-Leeming.

The ASK Workshop UK

In early 2020, I designed and built the first official website for the facilitators of this workshop. Working with the stakeholders in the UK and Canada, I designed elements and layouts in Photoshop, then built the site using a popular, solid, basic WordPress starter theme. This site represents just under 50 hours' work.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention

Since 2012, I have been the Website Officer (now Digital Products Officer) for this small but high-impact charity based in Brighton. In 2019, I designed, built, and edited for them a new, search engine optimised WordPress site. Key performance indicators during the first 6 months showed 30% more visitors and 80% more page impressions.
