Ended a very busy 2017 with the launch of a web site for the business First Call Partners.
I'd worked with Director Andy on a few occasions before - both project managing web developments and as a photographer, so it was great getting back in touch for his new venture. First Call Partners works with governments, international organisations, the private sector and NGOs to increase the effectiveness of their work on conflict, security and governance issues. So they needed something fairly straight forward - they don't sell anything directly from their site - it is a brochure for their bespoke consultancy services.
And of course something professional, clean and clear.
Being a start up organisation they asked me to begin with a blank piece of paper and come up with some branding ideas and a logo. After a conversation I put together some colour swatches and 10 logo ideas and associated devices. The 4 Directors of the business are based in London, so I presented these remotely online and opened up feedback to their team. A couple of rounds of revisions and alterations later, they decided on a colour scheme and a logo and we moved on to the website concepts.
Like most businesses they wanted the site to work across all devices and be 'responsive' and have a content management system that their business manager could update herself easily. I spoke with her and she was familiar with administrating Wordpress sites for previous clients, so was happy with the route that the project was taking. I set up all the necessary email accounts for her and helped the team to get them working on a number of devices and via a number of different email clients. Final element of the project was to design and supply business cards for the Directors.
Here is what the Director Andy had to say - "David designed the website for a new company I've started with colleagues www.firstcallpartners.org. He produced an excellent website for a very reasonable price, had great ideas and was easy and pleasant to deal with throughout. He responded very quickly to our requests and I would strongly recommend him." Andy McLean, Director of First Call Partners.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
