If you are new to this, as we were, she is infinitely patient and takes the time to listen and make helpful suggestions. Nothing is too much trouble for Sarah and from the moment she agreed to create our site it moved along at a cracking pace. She is a great communicator, forever cheerful and we would have no hesitation in recommending her services.”

Brief:

To design something cosy, not modern and sleek, using the colours of autumn. The site had to be easy to navigate and user friendly, and reflect the family-run nature of the business.

My choices:

I work best with shorter briefs, so I loved having near free reign to pick things as long as the client agreed on them. I felt yellows and oranges would make a site cosy, and so I tried to incorporate the golds of autumnal Perthshire in my work.

Skills Used:

  • Help client arrange site hosting
  • Install WordPress on host
  • Set up and configure WordPress
