Dunreath requested a redesign of their website to present a more modern, professional look-and-feel and a mobile-friendly user-experience, with the ability to inform visitors of upcoming events. Notable features: mailing list signup form.
I had an existing website that I realised needed to be updated but I didn’t know how to do that in a way that would deliver what I wanted. Talking with Ben before the project started was really useful and he helped me get a clearer picture in my mind of what the process and the end product could look like. He took time to explain what redesigning the website would involve and the options that were available. He took a lot of the hassle out of the whole process and presented me with a really clear, refreshed website that delivered what I wanted. He was really easy to work with. He did not seek to impose his own ideas but was instead prepared to change things in response to my feedback on his work. I would be very happy to work with Ben again and to keep him involved with the ongoing maintenance of the website.Dermot Grenham
A website for an association of Catholics in healthcare professions.
The Catholic Medical Association (UK) requested a redesign of their website to present a more modern, professional look-and-feel and a mobile-friendly user-experience, with the ability to collect donations and register interest in events. Notable features: Calendar of Saints in Healthcare, events widgets in the footer of select pages.
I have had nothing but a good experience of working with Benjamin. He took time to understand the aims and mission of the CMA at the beginning of the project, and together we laid out the goals of the website. He had a positive attitude when encountering problems and challenges, and would actively consider and propose possible solutions. Benjamin was able to advise me on what makes an effective, visible and responsive website, and has integrated our new website well with our existing social media platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube.
Benjamin has a professional attitude to his work. This is exemplified by his initial work which was to draw up a scoping document to outline the parameters of the website project, and then by his clear and prompt email correspondence throughout the project, the production of demos to keep me up to date with progress, and the resulting quality of our new website.Dr Rachel Nicholls

A website for a national Roman Catholic charity.
Una Voce Scotland requested an update to features of their website, while keeping the look and feel simple and light. The charity was looking in particular for a website that works well across different devices (mobiles, tablets and laptops), connects the website to social media/encourages engagement, and informs visitors about its work. Notable feature: interactive map of services around the country.
A website to promote a new triage pathway for COVID-19.
The doctors behind a new triage pathway, TICC-19, developed at a hospital in Reading, wanted to promote their work with the aim of reducing pressure on NHS resources and giving better attention to patients in greater need. They requested a mobile-ready and social-media-friendly website to be developed quickly, with auto-posting to social media and content that can be modified or updated with ease. Notable features: interactive flowcharts and video players.
I approached Ben with the project to build a website with material for clinicians and patients, and the need for this to be up and running within one week. At that time I was working all day every day so I could not oversee the website very directly. Ben had to crack on with this website without my being available to answer questions regarding how it might look. A week later he sent the final draft to me, and I was very impressed. We launched the website (www.ticc19.com) and it has been very popular. As the pandemic progressed, we needed new material added to the website which Ben duly did. I was impressed with how Ben appreciated that this project was of great importance and could save lives, so worked day and night to get it done. A common remark of our colleagues when we were trying to explain the project to them, was the presence of a professional website.
Now that [the first wave of] the pandemic is over, my senior colleague and I asked Ben to create a second website for us for a project to train clinicians in ultrasound skills. This is quite a niche area of medicine, but Ben went away and read up on the topic so he could grasp what we were looking for. That website was launched within three weeks and is precisely what we were after (www.aimpocus.co.uk).
During the last couple of weeks Ben has started work on a fourth website for my aforementioned senior colleague.
I have been impressed with Ben’s reliability and professionalism in building these now four websites. The end results have been very slick. For each of the medical websites there has been a tight deadline, especially for the TICC-19 project.Dr Joe Nunan

A website for a European NGO with an interest in trekking and ancient routes.
XirCammini requested a mobile-friendly website with a simple, clean look that’s easy to update. Notable customisation: multiple sections with updating content (Events, News, President’s Pen, Ancient Routes) and varying presentations in each.
For XirCammini, Benjamin put together a no-nonsense, simple but highly effective website design, using tried and tested web components. The committee was impressed by his willingness to spring into action at short notice, and work on his own initiative with a limited brief to meet the ever evolving requirements on a very limited V.O. budget. XirCammini has been more than happy to trust all further work to him!John Chircop, XirCammini Director
