A Journey through the Website Delivery Model

I have a structured approach to building websites that takes you through a journey from discovery to deployment and beyond.

A usability audit will help you to identify areas where focus groups, interviews and surveys fall short and take your user research to the next level.


Define what you want to achieve with your brainstorming session. By setting clear objectives, I’ll be able to focus our thinking.


A fun and exciting way to bring your design ideas to life and see how users interact with them in a real-world setting.

How Online Usage Has Skyrocketed in Recent Years

In 2020, a whopping 96% of households had internet access, up from 93% in 2019 and a mere 57% back in 2006. And even more excitingly, internet connections in households with seniors (65+) have increased by 7 percentage points to a solid 80%.


It’s great to see that more people are banking online too, with 76% of adults using internet banking in 2020, compared to just 30% in 2007 and 73% in 2019. And when it comes to shopping, 87% of adults shopped online within the last 12 months, with seniors (65+) leading the way with a huge growth from 16% to 65%.


But what are people buying online? The most popular items are clothes, shoes and accessories, with 55% of adults making that purchase, followed by food deliveries from restaurants and fast food chains, purchased by 32% of adults.

There’s More to Consider Than Just How a Website Looks

Aesthetics and functionality are equally as important. I know that web design encompasses everything from the overall layout of a site to the smallest details like buttons and icons. That’s why I’m dedicated to crafting responsive websites that offer a seamless experience across all devices.
