Here are the answers to the most frequent questions I get asked

Do you use Dreamweaver to build your sites?
No! All of the sites that I build (non-open source) are coded by hand. I have an expert knowledge of XHTML and so do not need a 3rd party program to write code for me. This means I know how the site is built, how the code is structured and where to go should any changes be required.
Can you work on any Content Managed System?
Although I specialise in Joomla! and WordPress, I have good knowledge on most Content Managed Systems as well as writing bespoke ones if required.
Are you qualified?
Yes. I went to Croydon College of Art & Design in the late 1980’s for two years and got a National Diploma in graphic design. From there I went on to Barnet College of Art & Design where I completed a Higher National Diploma in graphic design with merit.
How long have you been building websites?
My first commercial job in web design was in 1994 and I have been developing and designing sites ever since.
Do you do work for people outside the UK?
I am very happy to work for clients around the world. I have clients in America and Europe at the moment.
Do you work for a company or design house on a freelance basis?
Yes. I can take on freelance work for you, although I always work from my base rather than in your office. I'm always happy to agree a fixed price for any out-sourced work.
How much do you charge for your services?
Prices vary from job to job, but prices can be a low as £150. Please contact me with your requirements and I'll be happy to help you.
