Glenevan Spirits

After doing work for their parent site Glenevan Mill, Glenevan asked me to create a website for the spirits arm of their business. An international business with offices in Scotland, Italy, Turkey and Russia, the website was created to give them a centralised online presence promoting their brand and variety of products. This was quite a unique site to work on because all communication and requirements gathering was done with their Italian office over Skype and Email.

R A Walter Plumbing and Heating

Local plumber Ronnie Walter felt he was paying too much for his Web Hosting and asked if I could take this on. Having looked at his site, I felt it was quite dated, so I suggested that rather than migrate his existing Wordpress site, it would be more economical in the long run to start from scratch. We therefore built his new site on Squarespace, which also provides the Hosting solution. It was then a case of taking over the management of his domain name and pointing this at the new website. In the end the whole project came in under budget.

Rich Rowe

A writer based in the Scottish Borders, Rich has had a website on his to do list for several years. After taking over the renewal of his domain name, Rich asked me to also design him a website. After a very detailed brief from Rich, we decided to go down the route of using Squarespace for the hosting and templates. Rich provided all copy and imagery for the site. The development came in just under budget.

Glenevan Mill

Established originally in 1978, Glenevan Mill are relaunching themselves. I've done several iterations of the site until landing on this one, using Squarespace. It ticks all the boxes of what they were looking for, the ability to update it themselves, blogging capability and social media integration. I've also been providing some consultancy to Glenevan in terms of other integrations and tools, as well as helping out with Analytics, as well as managing the domain name and web hosting.

Nature Unlimited

A community interest company based in the Scottish Borders, Nature Unlimited had a site built on 1&1 using their website builder, however they found it slightly unwieldy to manage. I therefore suggested that they start again with a more modern, responsive design, built in Wordpress. I managed the Wordpress installation, designed a new site architecture based on the existing content and all based on what they wanted, and then designed the site on a Wordpress theme.
