Websites, logos, illustrations and such things

I am a Web and graphic designer based in Chester (but you could be anywhere, of course). I like uncluttered, attractive designs that make sense to use and are easy to update. I also enjoy designing print leaflets, logos and suchlike, and drawing with a (digital or physical) pen.

What have I done so far?

I've worked with many small to medium sized companies and charitable organisations, either doing a full job from logo to design through to website build and training, or part of the process as required. Here are just a couple of my more recent projects:

LGM Products

This Farnham-based supplier of fire and signalling systems wanted a site to showcase over 300 products in a variety of different categories with filters, part codes and PDFs, and make it all attractive and clear for customers.

“Working with Tim from start to finish was a pleasure! We had a very productive initial meeting to discuss the concept we wanted delivering. From that point Tim worked remotely but kept in regular contact with us to achieve our goal. Our new site is a vast improvement on what we had and continues to develop with Tim’s close support.” — Nic, LGM Products


Scargill Movement

This retreat, holiday and conference centre in the Yorkshire Dales needed a site that was easier to update, looked better and worked well on mobile devices, as well as providing a searchable programme with theme categories and custom fields, and a customised booking form and email newsletter sign-up.

What can I do for you?

Here are some examples of things we can definitely do, just to give you an idea. There are almost infinite possibilities beyond these, and if you're bewildered by the options, I can help you decide what might be appropriate for your situation.

  • An easy-to-use system to update content yourself (which I'll teach you how to use)
  • A modern, clean, clear look and feel, either with your existing logo and brand, or a new one
  • Unique, customised drawings, photos or illustrations
  • Corresponding leaflets, brochures and print materials
  • A "responsive" site that automatically adjusts to mobile, tablet and large desktop screens
  • Ability to insert and embed images, audio, YouTube video, podcasts and more
  • Site search, and help with optimising your content for Google / Bing too (SEO)
  • News or blog sections, categories, tags, comments and moderation
  • Customised contact forms, email newsletter lists and easy sign-up boxes
  • Integration and help with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media
  • Detailed visitor statistics from Google Analytics
  • Events calendars
  • Product catalogues
  • Customised sections to add, edit, remove and display your own particular items in a way that makes sense for your specific situation
  • Secure online shopping or donations, with PayPal or many other payment providers
  • Photo slideshows and galleries

All my websites are based on the excellent and widely-used WordPress content management system, set up with a custom set of plugins and a unique theme which I create for you, and tested on all sorts of browsers and devices — Windows PC, Surface tablet, Mac, Android, iPad...

How long and how much?

The price depends on how difficult the work is. Some things seem simple but take a lot of effort to achieve; others seem intricate but can actually be implemented easily.

Let's have a conversation, then once I've understood your needs, I'll give you a quote. Most websites fall somewhere between £1,200 and £5,000 and between 2 and 6 months. What's more, unless you change your mind later about what you want, I'll stick to what I quote.

I can also host and/or maintain your website (from a technical perspective rather than producing your content for you) for £30-£60 per quarter, and I'll be on the end of an email if you need any friendly help or advice after launch.
