Even after 20 years working in the web design industry, I still love the excitement of creating a new website.  The thrill of knowing that I’m able to help businesses thrive is quite addictive. However, I know from experience, that the wrong approach to a web design project can be harmful to a business’ prospects.

I started Think Write Design because I believe passionately in my approach to web design projects.  I believe in it so much, in fact, that I named my business after it.

It’s an approach that puts careful thinking, planning and research first, so that the strategy, content and design of each website can be crafted from a position of knowledge and strength. It eliminates guesswork, reduces risk and means my clients don’t spend their money on unnecessary work that has no meaningful impact for them.

And that’s the underlying purpose of Think Write Design: to ensure clients get good advice that delivers the right web site and, ultimately, great results for their businesses.

Who I work with...

Small, Medium & Large Businesses

I have experience working with businesses of all sizes.  From start-ups to multi-nationals.  Whilst the needs of businesses of different types and sizes will vary, my approach to projects works for all businesses.

This means, I'm equally comfortable helping a small, family-run business start to grow, as I am helping a larger business completely renew their digital strategy.

Whilst a lot of my projects are for web design in Devon, I work all over the UK and can be based both remotely and on-site. I do consider interim roles in the right circumstances.

Agencies

I work with a number of traditional marketing, small and mid-size digital agencies.  I work as part of their teams, allowing them to offer an extended range of skills and experience to their clients, whether that be as a consultant to an existing team or taking full responsibility for the delivery of a digital strategy or web site.

I'm happy to work either behind-the-scenes or take a client-facing role and can be engaged on either a retained or project-by-project basis. I'm always happy to discuss new opportunities.

Freelancers

I work with an extensive network of experienced freelancers offering web design in Devon, as well as other services.  I use their skills to enhance what I can offer to my clients and, equally, they use me to add to their offering.

In particular, I have nearly 20 years' experience acting as a senior consultant and advisor in new business environments, meaning I can often help freelancers who perhaps aren't as comfortable in a front-line sales environment.  I'm always happy to discuss partnering up on a project or long-term basis if it's in the best interest of the end client.

My background and experience

  • A 20-year career: I started my career working at one of the UK's highest rated agencies in the mid-1990s.
  • Varied experience: I've worked in a variety of senior roles, including Head of Design, Account Manager, Project Manager & New Business, giving me a detailed and hands-on knowledge of the full web design process.
  • Significant clients: Over my career, I've been involved directly in pitching to, consulting with and delivering projects for major clients including accounts for Bosch, Siemens, Neff, Subaru, Churchill Insurance and EPSON.
  • Agency founder: For 11 years, I was co-founder and Managing Director of Ridgeway, a fast-growing digital agency in Oxfordshire winning accounts with clients including Twinings, MIRA, Silver Spoon Company, and HMV.
  • Web design in Devon: In 2014, I relocated with my family to Devon and, having sold my shares in Ridgeway, I started Think Write Design so I could help more businesses succeed in the ever-changing digital world.
