What I do.
Website creation & Development
I create affordable web-solutions that look great, is user friendly, accessible and that your clients will love.
Web design is not only about making pretty pictures but it's creating engaging experiences for people either on a desktop or a mobile device. I create responsive sites to various degrees depending on project and budget.
In the last few years I have been working with Wordpress as my cms (content management system) of choice, creating bespoke themes and plugins for my clients.
As well as websites i also design for print including point of sale material, packaging, brochures and catalogs.
Logo & Branding
If needed i can also create vector logo art and visual branding for any web or print projects.
E-mail Newsletter design
Set up, design and implement newsletter campaigns including tracking and social media integration.
I am always looking for new opportunities and experiences no matter how small or large.
I live in southern Burgundy together with my beautiful wife, two amazing children and our family dog Bea. We moved from London over 10 years ago exchanging our hectic city life with a more tranquil rural existence which suits us just fine.
I am passionate about design and the web and enjoy learning new technologies on a daily basis. I love how the web never stands still. I also indulge in other pleasures such as music, photography, coffee and the local gastronomy to name but a few.
What some of my clients say.
Working with Hamish throughout the creation of our website - from a blank page through to our now fully functioning e-commerce website has been a fantastic experience. Our website has been built entirely bespoke to our requirements and surpasses our very high expectations; we are absolutely delighted with the results. Finding someone who brings both technical excellence and fantastic design ideas to the table has been ideal for us and so unlike other companies or designers we've encountered. He is so easy to work with and never lost us in technical jargon. He is commercial, flexible and practical and yet retains his original thinking throughout the process.
Working with Hamish is like having another partner to your business; he really works out what you are trying to achieve commercially and then works to achieve that. We would recommend him without hesitation.
