Check out my current and past website development. I have worked with a number of clients over the years and unfortunately for some, their websites are no longer available.
To simplify maintenance across sites, I normally produce a common set of routines for use. I will make these available as I package them for a simple drop into your site.
Designed and produced for a friend, Matthew Foxwell runs a Pizza restaurant in the picturesque town of Brixham in Devon, England.
To simplify the maintenance of the site, I used media queries for Responsive web design and then to gain maximum potential visibility, I used SEO practices, Google analytics for monitoring and Google Business and Bing Places along with local listings to increase the local value. If you are in the area, check out his gorgeous pizzas!

Ann Walker & White Arrow
I designed this website for a dear friend, Ann Walker and her spirit guide White Arrow. This website hadn't been updated for a long time and was in need of a refresh. Again, using the same structure as PizzaZ, the site was crafted to be search engine friendly, and then responsive design techniques to showcase Ann's journey, from a destop browser down to a mobile device.
Mikey Hall Yoga
This website was updated for Mikey Hall and his yoga business teaching Iyengar Yoga. The current website was designed by another developer but I moved his website from one web host to another and simplified the code to make it responsive design. This improved the loading times for all users and helped to increased Mikey's page ranking for his site.
Man & Van Services (Ashford)
This website was updated for Nigel Jones and his Man & Van Services company. The current website was designed by another developer. I moved his website to a UK web host and simplified the code to improve loading times. I also made the site mobile-friendly. Both of these actions helped to improve how Google and Bing see Nigel's website, and therefore would contribute to improved rankings.
Do you need my help?
Whilst I can see there is a market, I always believe that website owners should be in charge of their own domains and their web hosting, and therefore all notifications should go to the client. This means
that if there is any change in the relationship with the web team, the client is still informed of any issues which could bring down their website.
I do not seek ongoing hosting costs and would move you to a new web host if you choose. There will be a cost, based on the size of your website, for any changes required such as improving loading times, mobile
friendly pages and for any future work.
Save Our Earth
This was my first website and was used to raise awareness of saving the rainforests and promote good environmental practice. We created campaign actions, maintained a list of World Leaders and their addresses, ran a petition count to save the rainforests and kept visitors up to date with a newsletter. We also visited Downing Street in London back in 2002 to deliver petition signature to the then UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair.
It employed Perl and PHP with MySQL databases. This has been active since 2001 and is in the design stages for a refresh.
This was originally developed as a portal for the MVS systems at my employer. It consolidated four separate websites into one central site. These sites allowed the MVS team to broadcast bulletins to the MVS community, have an up to date display of the systems and relevant information, display hardware configuration data from the IODFs and to manage software changes in a peer review/approver system.
In time, this has evolved with the Software change system now managing all of the changes on the MVS and ALCS systems. To accomplish this, the site was rewritten to allow a user-defined configuration to be used.
v1.2 (16 Feb 2018)
My example contains a sample file and uses Material Design CSS from https://codepen.io/jonnitto/pen/OVmvPB with some slight modifications. The zip file also includes some icons from Google and https://materialdesignicons.com.
