I’m all about web design, web development and graphic design. It’s what I do all day and it’s what I dream about at night. When you have someone on your side with this much passion for design and development you can’t lose.
Check out my past projects, I know you’ll be as impressed as my clients were with the results.
Most of my past clients are well-established businesses, so I’ve become the online expert to call when you’re looking for a website that fits with your established brand image and marketing initiatives.
WordPress theme creation & customisation
Utilising the power of WordPress I can design and develop a site that you can easily manage all on your own, using a simple & intuitive interface. There won’t be any need to get a web developer involved just to change some page content as you’ll be able to quickly add, update and publish any content yourself.
WordPress is an awesome Open-Source blogging and Content Management System. It has a huge community of dedicated & talented people all over the world who contribute not just to the software itself, but also in creating thousands upon thousands of Plugins and Themes. One of the huge benefits of WordPress is its simplicity to use. It’s also extremely flexible and powerful.

Social Media branding
With the huge surge in social media usage on sites like Facebook & Twitter, it pays to have your brand stand out. It’s also important to have your brand displayed consistently across the various platforms that are out there. For a small investment, I can create custom Facebook “welcome/landing” pages as well as Twitter profile backgrounds to match your company branding.
Statistics say that people are 25% more likely to click “Like” on your Facebook page when you have a “Welcome” or “landing” page, so it definitely pays for itself. If you’re just getting started on Twitter, it’ll help your brand stand out when you have a professionally designed profile page rather than one of the standard twitter backgrounds.

These days, every business needs a web presence. If your competition is already online, then they are at an advantage because they have access to the massive online market.
Whether a large or small business, you need a website that effectively represents who you are, and what you do. I can help you identify what kind of website you need to get your piece of the online market. At the start of every project I’ll discuss with you exactly what you want to achieve and answer any questions you have about the website.
Web design and development is my forte. But I’m also respected for my ability to translate my web designs across to print, and building websites to compliment brand image. When you select Maddison Designs as your online partner, the troubles associated with using multiple design agencies to get a cohesive brand image are over.

Once I’ve finished the custom-made design of the site to your approval – I’ll bring it to life! Whether it’s one or one hundred pages, there’s some great ways that I can give your site the ‘oomph’ it needs to impress your potential clients and drive them to you.
Each step of the way and prior to ‘go-live’, I’ll make sure that I’ve tested your site across numerous platforms, such as Windows and Mac OS, and with various browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. But testing sites with various browsers is only the beginning, because I also test my sites against the W3C Markup Validation Service and the W3C CSS Validation Service just to make sure that everything’s sweet! Only after rigorously testing your website can I be sure that the ‘oomph’ will work.
I believe in usability and visitor satisfaction, and I place a high priority on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), so that you’re as close to the top in search engine lists (like Google) as possible.
