I am a freelance web designer / front end developer.
I design custom websites, or build them to a supplied design.
I live in Zandvlei / Lakeside, Cape Town, South Africa.
I am an accomplished UX and website designer.
I have a passion and talent for well-organised, cleanly-presented information.
My design skills are matched with a skill for building clean, easy-to-use websites.
The ease-of-use extends to the back end as well. Website owners and content-managers love the tools I provide.
- Websites built from my own designs.
- Websites rendered to a pixel-perfect standard from client-supplied designs.
- Conversions of old websites to WordPress.
- Custom development on existing websites.
Built with quality components
I build most of my websites using the self-hosted version of WordPress (wordpress.org).
I avoid using pre-built themes (for example themes from ThemeForest), and build each website from scratch on a fast, sturdy, “blank canvas” framework theme*.
On top of this I install a small, but powerful set of tools which benefit us both.
* A WordPress theme controls not only the look, but also the functionality.
➤ Built for you
I keep your experience in editing and updating your own website first and foremost in my mind. To this end, I am very focussed on making sure every part of the website is easily editable, in most cases simply by clicking on what you want to edit.
Unlike many developers, I am not against page builders. In fact I actively endorse, and make very extensive use of the clean, fast Beaver Builder range of tools to build and lay out websites, which have rendered said developer's concerns redundant, and clients very satisfied.
These tools are known to be the smoothest, easiest way to edit a website and lay out pages, but just in case, I provide a tailor-written guide for your new website, and I actively maintain a manual for my clients, here.
But enough about me. Let's do this..
