JSM Logistics provide quality freight forwarding services at competitive rates across the UK. Glasgow based JSM have a wealth of experience to make handling your road haulage and distribution issues a smooth process.
I created a demo for the look and design of the website using the handy tool from Adobe called Comp which I have installed on my iPad.
Once the design was approved I switched to Adobe Dreamweaver to create an HTML5 and CSS3 website which is quick loading and responsive.
To help with accessibility I added appropriate ‘Alt text’ to all the images. I also made sure that colours and writing were clear to view and the design was easy to navigate.

Josephine Oboh-MacLeod (JOM) Charity
Main aims of organisation – Progression of society and community development by connecting the world using Art, Craft, Design, Heritage/history.
This website required large landscape photographs to fill the main slideshow. To go with the JOM Charity logo I added in purple and red to the website navigation to keep with the colourful theme.
My client has full control of all content on the website and has filled the pages with their own copy and images.

Nicola Hopkinson of Ivory & Brass provides private music tuition in piano and brass instruments.
Nicola needed a new website and hosting package. A modern responsive website was the best option to promote her music lessons online.
After feedback from my client I came up with a suitable colour scheme for her website. Next we also looked at appropriate photographs for the site.
A full width piano photograph was chosen as the main image on the front page. My client then took some photographs of her room where she teaches and these were added into the site. Finally we added some appropriate stock images.
The final stage was to make the site completely fluid and responsive for all Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and Desktop computers.
Once my client was happy with the website I transferred the domain to my hosting and uploaded the website to it’s new home.

Agnew Chimney Engineering are based in Knightswood, Glasgow. They specialise in stove installation and chimney maintenance.
They required a responsive Smartphone friendly website to promote their business and skills.
I created a responsive design using HTML5, CSS3 and Bootstrap elements.
The look and colour scheme of the website was based on their logo, their van artwork and their type of industry.
I used a CSS3 blend for the background and top bar colours.
The section of photographs also played a crucial part in the design and feel of the website. They take all their own photographs of wood and multi fuel stove installations. This is fairly unique as most businesses rely on stock photos.

The site was created using Dreamweaver utilising Bootstrap for efficient responsiveness. CSS3 was used extensively in creating the look and feel of the website.
