about these images

Page 1 : 2 : 3 websites

I've designed around 15-20 websites from scratch in the last 5 or so years. Here are a selection of my projects over this time, focusing on the most recent.

For all my sites, I provide a full service which involves managing the hosting and domains, advising on and commissioning content, copywriting, search engine optimisation and anything else a client requires. I'm always available to guide non-web-savvy clients through any part of the process of owning and operating a professional website.

To find out about itself there is a special section here.

Note, wherever possible I link straight to the current, live site, but in some cases the site has closed and the domain is no longer there. In those cases I have mirrored the site on but some functionality might be missing.

The official Kirsty Crawford site was developed as part of my ongoing work with Rocket Music Management Ltd. Extensive meetings and discussions ensured that the site reflected exactly what the artist and management required and I was even present to help direct photography at two dedicated photo shoots.

All sites I have developed for Rocket Music feature a bar along the bottom which promotes other sites in the network. What at first just looks like a series of links pops-up a floating information box as each artist's url is hovered over. This promotes each other act in the roster without intrusion and each bar, though identical in format, is styled according to the host site. Visit, or to see for yourself.

Lisa Theunissen - Official Website
March 2006

The Complete Stone Roses - Official Website
March 2006

The Complete Stone Roses are one of the most successful tribute acts in the UK, seen by 70,000 paying fans each year and frequently selling out top venues such as the Carling Academies. Their website at has been designed to serve as an online reflection of that success and a resource for fans and promoters alike.

Their new site has been built within a content management system and is designed to be updateable by the band's management on the road. This is key to ensuring that all gig dates, news items and photos are as up to date as possible.

I am also currently conducting an overhaul of the largest Stone Roses website on the net, porting the old content into a new refreshed design which will sit as a sister site to

Built with: Fireworks MX, Flash MX, Photoshop 7

The online branding of the up-and-coming quartet was begun as early as Summer 2002 when work was completed on the band logo. From there, constant discussions with the band's frontman and management developed the look, feel and style of the band's digital presence.

During several iterations, such as an early beta site, key decisions, including band font, colour scheme and graphic style were made, giving a solid visual foundation on which to build the final version of the site.

Closed when the group disbanded over a year ago, the site had just launched a new customised fan forum.

Kirsty Crawford Fansite Redesign

February 2006

This redesign of the hugely popular Kirsty Crawford fansite at was intended to bring the fan website more in line with Kirsty's musical style. The original site (featured on this page ) was built before I knew Kirsty and before much of her musical development.

As has always ranked above her official site in search engines this redesign was important to ensure that people got the right first impression of this modern singer/songwriter.
