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. “I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it... Thank you so much for putting it all together.” – Alice Newton-Leeming, founder of Mental Health Learning Ltd.

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.
