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 site 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 a pleasure to work with on my new website. Recommended by a mutual acquaintance I didn’t need to look any further for a web designer after our initial conversation. Jo ‘got me’ and understood what I was looking to do. I’m really proud of my website now and Jo’s created a fabulous looking site with all the functionality I need. Easy to work with, delivering everything on time and very professional. I highly recommend Jo.
Jo came to me through recommendation and this really is the best marketing tool. Jo listened to what I wanted to achieve and came up with ideas too, between us the website evolved and I am really pleased with the end result – thank you so much.
From the outset, Jo was looking at our business from a short, medium and long term perspective so our website and its content could grow with the business. We had clear ideas about the overall look we were trying to achieve and Jo was able to make it happen. From the initial brief, Jo was superb to work with, using her vast experience to guide us through and provide options so we could achieve our end goal. Jo was always on hand to assist, no matter how small or silly our questions were. I look forward to working with Jo again and would not hesitate to recommend her.
From the beginning Jo was thorough and professional, sharing her expertise and ideas and creating a web presence for us that has elevated our brand and boosted our profile. Plus she was endlessly patient with our numerous questions and changes, showing us exactly what she did and how so that we feel ready and able to take over the CMS. We have no hesitation in recommending Jo not just for website design, but also for caretaking and developing and your business brand look, feel and tone.
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 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!
Great Working with Jo, she took lots of time to really understand what I was looking for and was very patient as I didn’t always know my self, but we got a great outcome, highly recommended
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.
Jo has recently completed a fantastic piece of work for me, designing my website, rebranding my business and helping me to craft refreshed materials. She is able to combine a professional approach with fun and energy and has been a joy to work with! Above all, Jo is a great listener and she skillfully facilities the right outcome. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending 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.
