website projects

Here are a selection of my latest projects, in each case I’ve used a WordPress theme customised to the requirements of each client. I focus on building websites for small businesses a range of industry sectors. They all share the objective of a simple and effective website with the potential to grow organically as their business grows. My sites are responsive, meaning they work on phones, tablets and pcs and have an optimised set up for search engines.

I want to strongly recommend Jo who patiently partnered with us through every step of our website upgrade journey. At the start she took time and care to really understand our business, brand fundamentals and what we were trying to achieve. She thoroughly researched the market and options and presented excited possibilities to us.  We changed strategy as a result of learnings during covid and she pivoted to find new brilliant solutions for our site.  At the end when we had challenging deadlines she performed magic even over the Easter weekend and made sure that the site went live without hitch, in readiness for the opening of our new shop.

She has also provided invaluable help with extra technical aspects such as hosting and email send provision, and provided great training on operating the CMS.  Besides all her strategic, design, attention to detail skills, she is just the loveliest business person and partner – I honestly miss working with Jo now!   The proof is in the outcome – #user sessions is +54% to 1974 in the first relaunch month, page views are up +27%.   Thank you Jo!

Jo was great at designing my website. She understood the clinical yet friendly look I wanted to create. We had many zoom calls where we talked through my vision and made all the changes quickly and easily. I would highly recommend Jo and have to many of my clients. Thanks Jo, my website is beautiful and I love that we can keep adding and making changes. It’s a pleasure working with you.

I had been thinking of creating a website for several years, tried and failed myself and finally decided the task was beyond me and I needed a professional, I looked online at designers creating small business and startup websites and I found Jo Dickie and I am so glad I did. She is amazing.  She is really invested in helping you to make a website that works for you and your business and will guide you with great patience through the whole process.   She goes the extra mile to understand the brief and asks the right questions that fine tune the design. She provides excellent advice and great value for money, she’s transparent about costs and lets you know when she will complete each stage.  I have received lots of compliments about the website and it has given me an essential online presence.  She will even host your site when it’s finished – I have complete trust in her.
I really appreciated her patience and professionalism and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a website.

We are delighted with our new website. It was a complicated design brief, but Jo advised and guided us through the process and delivered exactly what we wanted.
I have no hesitation in recommending her.

We were recommended to use Jo to assist us with designing our new Website. From our initial contact with her right through to the finish and launch of our Website, we found Jo to have good ideas, suggestions and advice with her being extremely enthusiastic and clear, and her keeping us informed at each stage the work she had completed. All instructions and tasks given to her were dealt with efficiently and professionally. It was an absolute pleasure working with her. We would recommend her with no hesitation.

It took me a long time to decide that I needed a website. The whole idea felt daunting and scary.
Once I engaged Jo the process couldn’t have been more joyful. Following a friendly, informal discussion, Jo went away and did all the hard work.
When she sent me a draft I was genuinely blown away. It all looked so stunning. Jo helped me to collate images, ideas and structure for an easy to use website showcasing my artwork.
When I look at the website I remain thrilled and proud of how it looks.

We gave Jo the significant challenge of producing a large website covering all our services, each with a series of case studies – in other words an online brochure. This website needed to be slick, attractive, easily navigated and responsive with full SEO capabilities.

Jo was extremely professional, approachable and worked with us at Stonehouse to produce a bespoke website which we are delighted illustrates our company and the quality of work we offer.

Through Jo we have received full SEO training and feel supported going forward. In return, Jo is quite the expert in basement waterproofing!

Her attention to detail, responsiveness to feedback and ability to translate ideas has resulted in a website I’m absolutely thrilled with.  I continually receive compliments on the website and I’m always delighted to recommend Jo’s services. Thank you so much Jo!

Jo has just said “my website is now live!”- fantastic news to me! I had been fearful of doing anything about a website until I spoke to Jo as I’m not technical at all but she was fab! She made the whole process simple: asked pertinent questions about my target audience; which other websites I liked; guided me through structuring the content and was very flexible when I hadn’t done all I had promised to have done by a deadline! So pleased to have done it. Thanks to you Jo.

We are in a design field (architects) and so it is very important that our website showcases our work and design approach expertly from the first click. Jo had reserves of patience that I had not known possible, always going the extra mile to ensure that everything was perfect and that all our ideas were met. Extremely personable and approachable, she made the website creation process fun, engaging and easy which was an unexpected bonus! Would highly recommend Jo if you are looking for a new website.
