content creator . web master . designer
Management consultant turned editorial designer and content creator. I bring an acute commercial awareness to my clients, honed over more than 30 years in business. A strong focus on pragmatic, accessible solutions to business needs.
“Bringing order to chaos” is a phrase often associated with me. I work diligently and logically to find the best fit for my clients. Sometimes that’s a one-off piece of work: a blog post, Infographic or landing pages. Other times it’s something more strategic, like introducing editorial guidelines, or putting in place processes.
Digital Editorial Design
My first website appeared in 1996 and I haven’t stopped designing since. I can help you with:
- Site structure and layout design
- Page template and component design
- Editorial standards and processes
Ross is a teacher, he will spend however long he needs to ensure the business and the people he interacts with understand, agree and know what the objectives are and how, collaboratively, these can be achieved. I would unreservedly recommend Ross to any business that is serious about making change within their organisation.
– Robert Sleeman, TSYS
I design, source and produce content for web, digital and print. Content I produce includes:
- Blog posts and long form articles
- Research reports and cornerstone content
- Graphics, charts and diagrams
It’s been a real pleasure working with Ross. He’s brought process, calm and focus to complex business issues and developed a high degree of trust from a broad range of stakeholders – and delivered these with a welcome sense of humour!
– Andy Farmer, ORM
WordPress has been a key part of what I do for more than a decade.
- Day-to-day management, traffic monitoring and sourcing content
- Coding individual pages, site-wide templates and plugins
- Rehosting and replatforming existing websites
What impressed me with Ross was that he was passionate to share his knowledge and he taught me a lot. He was also a pleasure to work with and I recommend him heartily!

Guides for Small Business
A curated collection of long-form articles with a focus on content creation and management. From stock photography to skyscrapers to SEO basics.
What really impressed me about Ross was his dedication (and hard work!) during his time here and genuine concern that he leave us in a position whereby we can replicate and facilitate design sprints unassisted in the future. He was extremely easy to work with and it is a pleasure to recommend.
