Mobile-friendly

I have always believed that websites should be fast, easy to use and offer unrestricted access across all available web browsers and operating systems – even more important now that something like 50% of website access is via hand-held devices (smart-phones and tablets).

All the websites I've designed and built in recent years have therefore been fully responsive (mobile-friendly) and follow the latest thinking in terms of web architecture and functionality, coding, CSS, page design and image optimisation.

Search engine optimised

All the websites I create are built with Google's baseline recommendations for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) in mind. I'm also very happy to advise on creating Search Engine Optimised content and page tags. It's also worth noting that Google now considers 'mobile-friendly' websites to be worthy of a higher ranking in search results than that those built using the first-generation style of inflexible web architecture.

Accessible

A key aspect of website design and development which should never be overlooked is the responsibility placed on web designers and website owners, under the UK's Equality Act of 2010, to ensure that online media does not discriminate against those with disabilities – particularly visual disabilities.

When I create a website I'm therefore always mindful of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines promoted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the advice of the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

My web design work is undertaken to current HTML5 / CSS3 standards and all coding is validated prior to publication using testing services provided by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The software I use tends to be a combination of Adobe's Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Fireworks. My preferences for scripting are JavaScript and ASP.

David Siddall Multimedia is a deliberately small freelance business which has been allowed to develop organically, and which prides itself on its reputation for building long-term client relationships – 15 years being the longest so far with a couple of others not far behind! I like to take time to really get to know my clients and to understand their needs and I always calculate prices on an individual basis.

If geographical location is important to you I'm based in Monmouth at the head of the Wye Valley in south-east Wales and therefore my regional work covers website and online media design, graphic design, printing, marketing and publicity for clients in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, the Wye Valley and South Wales. I also work with clients based in London, the Home Counties and South-East, Bath, Bristol, and the West Country. If you've got a project you'd like to discuss please get in touch, I'd be very pleased to help.
