I make beautiful, usable, affordable websites for small business owners
The brief was to design a central industry leading CDM Guidance (Construction, Design & Management) information hub for both architectural & engineering professionals, within the construction industry.
Their brief was brought to life using iconic architectural buildings and landmarks for visual impact, with a fusion of differentiating page designs. An introductory video using well timed imagery of iconic architectural landmarks on the home page, added an extra layer to the core of the website, helping to bring the website to life and enhance engagement with visitors to the site.
The site wihtin a few weeks was recognised by industry leaders, and automations to their ever growing email subscribers list has been set up, informing their readers of latest news on the site, driving engagement and enhancing their SEO, making them rank No.1 on Google within their field.
A stylish wellbeing retreat organisation who we had the privilege to design their website for. The Wellness Tree UK, as featured in Psychologies & Living North magazine, wanted to showcase their retreat offering as well as their 'Zen Do' & Corporate offerings.
Impactful imagery and creative visual page design, helped to engage audiences and entice readers to know more about their offerings. Embedded social media platforms, helped to create synergy between the two, and allowed the owners, Emma & Angela, to effortlessly have their website updated via social media automations, so they could focus on creating their fabulous retreat offerings, and not worry about updates or sharing across the different platforms.
K9TO5 DOG WALKING
I was asked to revamp this successful local dog walking business, 'K9TO5 Dog Walking'. We created a simple and stylish one page scrolling website, using impactful imagery and a modern design.
Links were created to partnership websites, including a dog groomer, vets, dog trainer & dog behaviourist, which helps to boost SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) Google rankings via rich content and collaboration.
The logo and branding were also created by ourselves, and used for promotion not only on their website but also on the dog walking van, which increased visibility and engagement further.
THE BLUE BELL PUB, DALSTON
New owners of local Cumbrian pub near the infamous Lake District, approached us to create a new website ready for the grand opening of their new venue.
Incorporating colours from their branding, and imagery of the pub itself and the food being served, we brought to life this traditional pub set in a picturesque village of Cumbria, showcasing their local ethos & cosy welcome feel.
Approached by a former client who we created CDM Differently for (as shown at the top of the page), they wanted to create a website to promote their Behavioural Performance Management Programmes.
Having worked alongside board panels such as Tesco's and the HS2 Railway, they were keen to create a 'go to platform' to promote their services into other large corporate organisations.
We created the branding as well as the website here, and utilised a colour theme to give Organisational Excellence an identity that is professional and corporate facing.
We utilised the same image as their home page cover with filter effects, so as to bring harmony across the clients different platforms that link with one another, but gives a different look and feel to their CDM Differently website, giving a unique identity. A smart video also embedded into the home page gives a professioanl look and feel to the site.
HOME FROM HOME CHILDCARE
The aim of this website was to demonstrate the homely and maternal feel of what had been created by owner Victoria of Home From Home Childcare, and her passion and expertise of working with children.
Victoria had her brand and colours in mind, so we simply created a visually appealing website, detailing creative illustrations to bring her brand to life, and utilised differentiating page designs to keep readers engaged and visually drawn in.
Imagery was important here and used throughout, to give visitors insight into the setup that had been created by Victoria as a Childminder, in order to give parents who visited reassurance, connection and comfort straight away, and demonstrate the excellence of care provided for the children in Victoria's care.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"It exceeded my expectations....absolutely fantastic on all levels. 5 Stars!"

Owner CDM Differently & Director XPS Ltd
Having been looking for a good web designer for some considerable time, without success, Zoe was recommended to me by my daughter, for whom she had just designed a website for her new business.
Zoe’s performance exceeded my expectations in every department. Although I only had a vague idea of what I wanted at the outset, Zoe’s structured approach quickly helped us to clarify the proposed format and content and we had the site up and running within a matter of weeks of engaging her.
She was highly professional throughout and her charges were very reasonable, the final cost of the website being bang on budget.
Our website has been well received in the short time it has been live, and it is already adding value to my consultancy business.
