What Happens?
FAQ's

I have the experience to provide my customers with effectively designed websites
  • All websites (including the ones I build) must have SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Any website that does not have SEO may as well not be on the internet as it won’t be found by Google or any other search engine, when people type their keywords in.
  • If you require marketing using Google Adwords or Facebook Adverts (with provided support) then I can recommend several companies in Bude and across the UK.

Holsworthy CE Primary School Website Design

Holsworthy C of E Primary School is situated in the heart of Holsworthy and graded ‘good’ in all areas by Ofsted.

I was really excited when Tim from Holsworthy CE Primary School approached me to revamp their current branding and website. I have always wanted to produce a modern, fresh and engaging school website from the earliest years of my business so this provided me with the perfect opportunity – I just couldn’t wait to get stuck in.

I began by  updating the current branding, giving it a more elevated, professional and refreshed look. This meant changing the branding’s colour scheme, to make it stronger and to place emphasis on the quality and care that their education provides.  I decided to use blue tones so that it was welcoming to both genders which was also an important requirement.

For the website, Tim requested the ability to add news articles and pages on the website using a content management system. I decided to go one step further and use a content management system with a page builder called Elementor which provides administrative users with full control of the layout for each page. This was a perfect solution and has allowed Tim to easily create new pages as and when required.

The website needed to be easily found using search engines, have quick page load times and an intuitive user interface on both desktops and mobile devices. The end result produced a website that I really pleased with.

Kitsham Holiday Cottages Website Design

Caroline from Kitsham Holidays approached me to look at their branding and give it a refreshed look. The aim was to make the branding more appealing to a younger generation customers and to make Kitsham stand out in a very crowded sector. This lead to a new website design, to match the re branding .

The branding produced uses a colourful and relaxing teal/blue colour scheme which appeals to both young and middle aged audiences. The shape of the logo follows a smooth curve effect to give give it a funky feel which you would not typically see associated with a holiday cottage business.

Following on from the style and feel of the branding, I decided to incorporate some bird illustrations to give the design some character and life, to make it bounce and stand out a little more. This has also helped the reader to follow the layout and flow of the new web pages.

Instead of using subtle background colours to separate the different sections, I wanted to further follow the style of the branding by using funky  and quirky dashes to separate the sections. This broke one of the design rules of symmetrically, as the lines are not perfectly equal to each other,  but this was the right decision for Kitsham as the are trying to appeal to younger generation of couples and families, in addition to their existing customer base.

If you like the clear/funky look designed for Kitsham Holiday Cottages, then feel free to contact me via the contact page to discuss your branding requirements.

Porthbud Beer Can Designs for Bude Brewery, Cornwall

Adam at Bude Brewery in Cornwall, approached me to produce a unique graphic for a new beer product – Porthbhud. Below are the project’s specifics.

  • The design must target the 25 years+ age group.
  • The designs should convey a sense of fun whilst also incorporating a modern touch.
  • The labels must include all legal requirements
  • The labeld must include Barrel Rock within the design

As soon as I was given this brief I went to Barrel Rock with a camera and took some photos. Using these photos, I started drawing Barrel Rock and the surrounding features. However, I soon felt the design was lacking something, so I started sketching an octopus as I could visualise wrapping the creatures legs around Barrel Rock which would fit the brief perfectly.

After that, the look came together really quickly and the end result put a huge smile on the faces of the guys at Bude Brewery. I can’t express how much fun this design was to put together!

Branding Tweak and Website Design for Bude Golf Club

Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club were looking to update their existing website. My brief was to make it easier for internal employees to update the site without requiring any prior knowledge of html, whilst also improving the site’s design for use as a marketing tool in attracting more members to the club.

The existing site was outdated and unfriendly to those wanting to view it from their tablet or phone. The website was hard coded and required existing knowledge of HTML and CSS in order to implement changes. With that in mind I refreshed the site, making it easy for staff to update by using WordPress as a CMS platform and of course, ensured it was appealing and easy to navigate on mobiles and all other devices. Whether you are looking for membership prices or tournament results, you will be able to quickly find what you are look for with their new website.

If you’re keen to give golf a go then take a look around their site for yourself.

Website and Branding for Arthur Bryants in Bude, Cornwall

Arthur Bryants contacted me to rebrand their company with a new image, as they felt it was getting a bit stale and needed some modernising.

This project involved producing a logo that could be used across all of their marketing and printing materials as well as producing a responsive website to work effortlessly across all devices.

As a family run company, it was essential to convey the quality and uniqueness of their services as well as their incredible reputation which has been built over 50 years. Therefore, special attention had to be paid to the typography used.

I created a logo that was balanced, clean, modern and suitable to sit on any background. The yellow butterfly adds a distinguished quality to the label. The style of the logo quickly dictated the style and layout of the website.

If you like the clear/stylish look designed for Arthur Bryants, then feel free to contact me via the contact page to discuss your branding requirements.

The Smugglers Challenge – Branding/Print Materials and Animated Website

Liam and the team from 3 Peeks Row which saw athletes scale Britain’s three highest mountains: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon by running, cycling and rowing the entire 478 miles, successfully raising 25k for charity, have decided to take on yet another challenging fundraiser  called – The Smugglers Challenge.

The reason behind this new challenge is due to Brown being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The aim is to raise as much money as possible for both the renowned national charity – Cancer Research UK, and The Force, supporting those diagnosed with cancer locally.

Having completed work previously for 3 Peeks Row, Liam approached me asking whether I would like to sponsor the new challenge by producing all the challenge’s branding/graphics and its website.

I produced (what I think) is quite a quirky and very eye catching logo. I also produced a bespoke website that doesn’t utilise templates. This allowed me to develop an interactive website combined with animations in such a way that the content of the pages was within the paddle board. I then integrated further animation showing splashes falling off down the side of the website – you don’t see that often within a website do you?

If you are looking for an interactive website then feel free to contact me via my contact page to to discuss your requirements.

Branding and Packaging for The Happy Turtle, Cornwall

I was approached to produce branding for The Happy Turtle Company in Cornwall. The company provides plastic free solutions to companies in and around Cornwall, working indirectly with A Greener Bude and the Bude Cleaner Seas Project.

The branding consists of green colour to coincide with the environment surroundings as well as a clean quirky but clean typography. As the name suggests, a hand drawn cartoon turtle was drawn up and illustrated that acts as a mascot for the company. From here straws, letterhead, compliments slips and cups were designed based around the green and turtle branding.

Whether your an organisation, small business or a medium business feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.

All Aboard The Barge in Bude…

As one of Bude’s most unique restaurants, The Barge offers a menu created with fresh local produce but with a twist, providing a relaxing and unique dining experience upon Bude’s historic canal.

I thought this was a great opportunity to be creative with the website design – I wanted to produce something that was unique and innovative. It felt like a no – brainer to make use of the the boat’s characteristics by incorporating wooden textures with hanging ropes to allow a user to distinguish between the sections on the page.

Furthermore, I decided to incorporate a steering wheel navigation bar.  As well as the steering wheel driving The Barge, I wanted to give the perception of it steering your path through the website.

If you haven’t already, take a look – especially on your phone!

North Cornwall Website Design for The Deck in Bude

The Deck approached me to design and develop a new website before the reopening of the restaurant for the New Year. They requested that the new website to cover more of the screen regardless of whether they are on the desktop, tablet or mobile whilst still utilising the wood textures they use on their menus.

Although they requested for the wood texture to be used, I felt this wouldn’t be enough to give contrast to the different layers. I decided to follow the rough effect of the wood by using a red brush that draws rough strokes to give attention to certain elements on the website. This got applied to the page titles and slideshow overlays.
