Design & Build: 2014

Bella Nora are a female only Laser & beauty clinic located in Eastham, London. There previous site was fairly old and was well in need of a redesign, so they approached me to do a full design and rebuild.

Bella Nora asked for the design to resemble similar competing clinics in the area, with a soft light colour scheme, as well as something that stayed on brand with their current brand and logo.

Janet Langford

Janet Langford
Design and Build: 2013

Janet Langford is a new forest based artist who specialises in miniature and small paintings.

I started the build of Janet's website directly after finishing her husband Alan's. Due to them both being artists their requirements were very similar, so I based this website around a similar layout having the artwork as the centre piece. Although the layout of the two sites are very similar, I decided on a drastically different design than that of Alan's website. Instead of a prestigious art gallery based theme I decided to base this design around the layout of an artist's work desk. This gave a less grand feel to the website and give more of a personal touch, similar to Janet's artwork and that compliments smaller paintings a lot better.

I also setup a Facebook page for Janet so she could publicise her artwork and events she would be participating in, you can see this here.

As with all my recent websites this website is fully responsive so it should display optimally on everything from smart phones, to tablet computers, to large monitors.

Alan Langford

Alan Langford
Design and Build: 2013

Alan Langford is a local New Forest equestrian artist who required a website to promote his artwork. As he is an artist I thought about the idea of putting the artwork at the forefront of the site and constructing the pages around the theme of an art gallery. After discussing this idea with Alan I created a mock up design of the home page, we agreed on the design and I went ahead with building the website.

As well as the website Alan also needed a way to publicise his exhibitions. I suggested Facebook as a great platform to get publicity for events, also I would be able to display this information on his website. However Alan didn't have a Facebook page at the time so I helped set one up for him, which you can see here.

The website is also fully responsive, which means it will optimise itself dependent on the size of the device you are viewing it on. Try adjusting your browser size or visit the website on your smart phone to see.
