current project

The Hair & Beauty Retreat

A smart and welcoming yet professional online presence has just been completed for a well established local business of many years’ standing.  Taking advantage of some stellar photography, the site uses cool greys and pinks to gel with the salon’s logo and pretty aesthetic.  Numerous CTA’s are seeded throughout the site to maximise opportunities for clients to get in touch or make a booking.  

new website

Scimax Ltd

A new website for a new limited company supplying high tech sampling instruments to the steelmaking industry.  Using original branding and visuals from the ground up, this commission also uses  an e-commerce facility and PayPal gateway.  The site has been designed to accomodate continued growth as Scimax take on new distributors for the UK and Ireland market.

new website

Lowndes Glass

Recently launched, this is the new website for a local glazing firm.  They wanted to optimise their online presence with an improved website showcasing their service range, experience and professionalism.  This will initially be a brochure site of four pages with a bold colour scheme and jagged cut glass dividers. 

new website

Systematic Instruments

This local technology firm with national reach needed a new website to accomodate their growing role as a unique distributor for cutting edge scientific equipment.  Primed with a new logo and colour scheme, this project is now live.  The site will continue to develop as Systematic Instruments expands its operations.

website redesign

Hazel Grove Reform Club

This local institution required a new website and custom content to replace an ageing design which was no longer fit for purpose.  It was slow, poorly optimised and looked dreadful on mobile. Nor was it making the most of their function room facility. Their new website solves all these issues – in style. 

new website for startup business

Lostock Military Fitness

A new site for a new venture: Lostock Military Fitness in south Cheshire.  With lots of similar outfits competing for custom, LMF’s site needed to stand out from the crowd.  Whilst retaining the military ethos which hardcore fitness fanatics crave, the site clearly demonstrates how the workouts are tailored to the needs of all levels and abilities.  Copywriting and tone of voice is no less important than layout, design and user experience.  The site has recently been extended to include e-commerce payment options.

Website Redesign

The Bridal Lounge Cheshire

The owner required a complete site redesign. Her old site had served her well but some updates had made the design inconsistent and it had fallen far behind technologically, being unusable on mobile.  Detailed discussions about the owner’s goals for the site meant that the initial brief came to include a new logo, colour scheme and typography to complement the launch of the new site.

practice web design

Real Coffee

Real Coffee but not a real café!  This is a working one-page design which I have customised to show what can be achieved.  Photographs are all royalty-free stock images.  Any text which isn’t automatically generated is mine.  

Hosting and Support

Security

An SSL Certificate is an absolute essential – sites not using the https protocol are less secure, load more slowly and, most importantly, deter potential visitors.

Visibility

The best website in the world is useless if it can’t be found. On-page search engine optimisation is built into your Site by James from the start. 

Wordpress

The most popular CMS (Content Management System) in the world, WordPress is used by global brands like Bloomberg, Sony, Facebook and Disney.  

Reliability

Every Site by James gets world class hosting from an industry leader.  Their data servers are located in London ensuring your site responds faster and loads quicker.

Content updates

New photo / text / service / SEO element to add to your site? Want to change the font? No problem. It’s all included.  Full list in our FAQ.

24 Hour Support & Monitoring

The uptime status of every Site by James is monitored 24 hours a day.   In any case, I can be contacted by phone or email at any time.

Software updates

Hosting a website is relatively straightforward. Keeping it working and looking good amid a constant stream of updates to browsers, platforms, plugins and standards is not. That’s my job.

Rolling back-ups

For the ultimate peace of mind, a copy of every Site by James is saved every night and a rolling back-up maintained for the previous 30 days. 

Social media

Integrate new or existing social media feeds into your site to keep customers informed – discounts, special offers, new lines, etc.. The web gives Stockport and Cheshire businesses a global reach.
