Projects

Easy Tax Return Website and Branding

A local accountancy practice needed a mobile friendly website to promote an online tax return service. I created a professional website design that was warm and welcoming. Custom graphics and illustrations were made for the website.

This is an example of a scrolling single page website that can be ideal for a book launch or to promote an author and their work.

As well as a website I created the logo and brand colours to match their partner company.

Lingerie and Swimwear Retail Ecommerce website and branding

The client needed a professional website to effectively promote their luxury swimwear garments and lingerie for sale in their online store. The site was created and SEO optimised to attract both local and national visitors.

This website won a local business award for best website in Gloucestershire UK.

The site had an extensive ecommerce shop section as well as brand categories for quick searches.

The client also had branding works carried out as well as social media management.

Authors and publishers can benefit from a strong online brand presence with a website that looks great, is easy to edit and sells their publications and downloads.

Cold Room company website, branding and marketing

The client needed a professional mobile-friendly website to help promote their retail and installation company across the region and nationally.

To help ensure that the website was a success I also provided SEO to target local web searches, branding materials and a marketing strategy.

As an author or publisher, you need to target your audience or niche and my websites can be designed to engage with these visitors and to also ensure that your website is found online. With social media training, you can have the skills to attract the right audience and create engaging content.

Mobile friendly art website

I created an art website to sell my photographic art nationally and internationally. The site includes an ecommerce section, image gallery, bio page, links to social media accounts and a sharing feature for visitors to share with thier contacts.

An author can easily sell their publications and downloads using my website design services. A specialised art publisher can sell their books and also display the art featured in these books. They can also sell artists artworks and illustrations easily.

For first time publishers my websites can provide instant creditbility and help to portray professionalism.

Construction company website and branding

I was asked to create a first website for a well known and respected construction company in the Forest of Dean, UK. They were not tech savvy people so the website needed to be super easy to edit and also had to work smoothly on mobile phones and tablets.

This wesbite was created to promote building projects within a 30 mile radius.

A historical author for example could have a website created to promote the town or region that a book or books are based on. Or use local imagery to create an atmoshere.

The client was given a professional brand identity, business cards and mobile friendly website.

Cherry on Top website and branding

Cherry on Top is a bespoke cake maker in Gloucestershire UK. I created a mobile friendly website to help promote her unique 3D cakes across the region.

As the client did not have much experience at all of udating a website, I provided training for them, but they were able in a very short time to make quick changes.

As well as the website, I created thier logo, printed marketing materials and a pop up banner to take to local business networking events and craft fairs.

This website had a gallery of cake designs to show off their talent. An author could have an gallery or their book covers, or of illustrations in the book. Publishers could show a selection of authors books as a featured section.

Renny Slade Website and Branding

Fully mobile friendly website and branding created for a transformational coach and speaker based in Cheltenham UK. The project included a logo, business cards and flyers and a website to promote her workshops and talks in the region.

As an author, you can sell your books and downloads from my websites, promote a book signing event, sell tickets for talks or writing workshops. This package can give authors and publishers a brand identity and a website and the ability to sell products with ease.

All the websites I design have a built in blog, which is all important for authors to inform their readers of news, new books in progress, book signing events, and special promotions.
