We were delighted to work with Phil Watts on the re-design and development of his website. The requirement was to build a simple, fresh, modern website that scaled down on mobile devices.
The result is a fully responsive website built on the Wordpress content managed platform. This gives Phil the ability to edit the content throughout the site.

Phil is delighted with the results and we look forward to working with him on future projects.
