This is my creative work project. A digital design consultancy that concentrates on the client business rather than expensive, high-maintenance portfolio pieces.
I came to this out of frustration whilst trying to get someone to build me a web site for my insurance business. I was constantly bombarded by technical jargon and design-led fripperies that would have turned the project into a cripplingly expensive site with little guarantee of functional worth.
The answer (because I had the time) was to start to teach myself web-construction and coding. The early attempts were pretty poor, but I am proud of these first tries because some of them have lasted the course and I get enquiries to build similar sites all the time!
But I have moved this business forward to develop an economical style of producing sites aimed squarely at SME businesses that require a good-looking, functionally efficient site that they can link to social media and maintain and develop themselves with ease.
This has gone very well so far by word of mouth alone and I have now introduced another London-based business into the mix for more complex sites where their expertise is needed.
The business is spartina design.
