One-to-one website for Eoin Mc Hugh


Recently a lot of the work I’ve done on websites has been done working one-to-one with clients sitting in on the process. They get to work with me step by step on the site build, directing their project closely, they get a flat hourly rate and the knowledge that the site is being worked on at a pace they feel comfortable with. There’s no delays, the site goes up as we work on it, problems are seen and sorted-out in real time.

Some of the sites I’ve worked on like this recently:

So I’ve been thinking this might appeal to more clients, I’m calling it ‘One-to-one website‘, a new web-design hand-holding service where you get exactly what you pay for. I can setup your domain-name, hosting account, design your site, upload your images and galleries and train you in your content management system so you update the site yourself. Additionally I can add the ability to sell your wares online (eCommerce), add Facebook and Twitter (Social Media integration) and help your site rank better in search engines (Search Engine Optimisation).

Get in touch to discuss what we can do for our site in a one-to-one session!

Site Update for Angela Fulcher

Angela Fulcher Indexhibit site

Angela Fulcher Indexhibit site

I recently updated the website of Visual Artist Angela Fulcher. She had an existing Indexhibit based site, and wanted a style tweek, improve typography, and integrate her content and galleries. I’ve used Indexhibit in the past, it’s a great tool for artists because of it’s straight-forward concentration on image galleries over other elements. Because it’s a CMS (content management system) you can upload new content, galleries, texts etc really easily. While the default style is still pretty nice, it’s possible to personalise the site with CSS, and a bit of PHP hacking.

If you’re looking for an Indexhibit site, I can set one up for you with an Artist-makers Online hosting plan, and can style it to your taste too. Just drop me a line.

New website for Heather Finn Knitwear


Screen Shot 2013-05-22 at 17.47.06Artist-makers Online have just completed a website re-design for Heather Finn Knitwear. This early spring clean to Heather’s site fuses some of her existing branding elements and put them together with a new photoshoot, a wordpress theme customisation and a sleeker online shop. Some of the custom illustration and logo design was used in her work for years, but it has been dusted off, given a make-over and re-used. The result is a new site with a new feel, that employs her familiar branding in a new way, and acts as an effective hub for her overall online presence.
