The Team

Caroline is always the creative lead on your project - from your logo conception, right through to your website ‘look and feel’. Once the visual design of your website is completed to your satisfaction, Caroline will hand the build and development of the website over to a trusted Web Developer. Clients are welcome to deal with the Developer directly from here on. Alternatively, clients can use their choice of Web Developer. If you wish, Caroline will oversee the technical build of your website and can remain your first point of contact throughout the project. Caroline also has good connections with local Printers and Photographers.

Design Agencies

As well as providing design services to the business community, Caroline also works with various design agencies. Design agencies often have an overflow of work, a pushing deadline, or simply prefer to outsource certain design aspects, instead of employing fulltime staff. Many have come to rely on Caroline’s particular design style, friendly nature and her ability to get the job done successfully.
