Before I had my own business I had many different jobs and various ideas of what it was I wanted to be when I finally ‘grew up’, but looking back all I really wanted was to do something creative.
After ten years of NHS work I left to start a new business making bespoke wedding cakes which opened up a new world, whilst running this business my passion in creating websites grew.
The knowledge of building my own website seemed too good to keep to myself, knowing many other business owners I knew that if I could transform my own website then I could help theirs too.
The power of websites…
Whilst running my wedding industry business I met clients who told me that one of the big reasons they booked me, in addition to my cake designs, was because of my website .
It seemed odd to book me for a cake based on a website - yes, I was naive! But they were my ideal clients (designers and creatives) and my site presentation sold me before we even met.
This realisation started a new journey into web design, knowing the power that my website had was great! I read more, I learned more, I took courses, and started to help other businesses.
Why I love designing websites…
I love it when clients send me their fantastic text and images. Figuring out the best way to layout the story of their business, showing their amazing craft and services is just one of the many great parts of the design process.
I’m a visual - I like pretty things, but I really love pretty and functional things that someone has put all their thought, heart and creativity into. Getting to work with creatives that put everything into their craft and art really is rewarding.
Pretty is all good and well, but websites rely on more than just style, and a website needs to serve its function too. I really enjoy aligning style with purpose to expand the potential of creative businesses, and creating a base to grow on.
my favourite things
I love the classics, historical fiction and the Harry Potter series read at least once a year.
I like to knit, weave and I’ve dabbled in ceramics, when time permits I love trying new crafts.
I’d be lost without my tech (first world issues!) I love learning and coding is my big passion.
That’s enough of my story, I would really like to hear about yours! If you’re ready to grow your business and want to transform your online presence then all you have to do is get in touch and we can start the process of creating your shiny, new website!
