I believe in delivering the most appropriate web solutions to clients; biggest is not always best. What is covered by the term ‘web development’ therefore varies depending on the needs of the project, but it is at this stage that clients begin to interact with their solution for the first time.
There are a number of decisions that shape the complexity and time of the web development phase. And the right solution can only be created and developed by communicating and working with you to understand your specific objectives. Normally this results in the creation of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) built using the most suited platform.
If a website is powered by a database-driven system, the deliverable may take the form of templates that can be integrated with a back-end system — either in-house or external. Whatever the ultimate end solution, my code is always well-structured and easy for a technical development team to work with. I am happy creating a GUI from the given designs, or to implement the templates on a third-party software platform.

At the start of a project, I work with our clients to interpret the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines and what they mean to them. I establish the level of accessibility the web solution should conform to – this is normally measured as A, AA or AAA, with triple A being the highest level. This process also helps define the compatibility targets, for example an audience where the majority are still dial-up customers, which may have an impact on how the website is designed and built.
At the end of all projects, my websites are checked against W3C guidelines and only deemed complete when all accessibility targets have been met.
