A qualified Foot Health practitioner starting up her own mobile buisness in Patchway, Bristol, where I had been working on a Mainframe Security contract for some time, asked if I could do her a website to let her local people know her business was up and running.
- Dogs On Holiday
Based in the northern highlands of Scotland, Tigh Cruinn Designs (TCDesigns) is the realisation of Pam Ward's ambition to create bespoke home furnishings with an individual flair. Inspired by the natural beauty of Harris Tweed, Pam has created her own distinctive range of sumptuous cushions. There are cushions for every setting from cosy country cottages to modern open-plan city apartments. This is a very graphical web site showing off the many wonderful colours and designs of Harris Tweed.
Gavin Ward has been in the design industry since the mid-1980s and he started up his Gavin Ward design associates (GWda) in 1997. GWda are renowned for wonderful strong colourful designs in many formats (printed and electronic). They form strong relationship with customers who come back time after time for their creative ideas, rapid response, taking control of your project requirements from start to finish. Gavin prepared the graphics for the TCDesigns web site, above.
- Itemise Inventories
A woman based in Milton Keynes set up her own Independent Property Inventory Provider company in 2010 and built a company web site on the 1&1 framework. A year later she needed more from her site than the 1&1 system could provide, so she contacted me and we migrated her site over to Orpheus Internet where I re-built her site within Dreamweaver keeping a similar look and style to the one she had already produced whilst providing the extra functionality and improved menu system that she wanted. A back-end is being prepared using custom KKCCC modules to give her and her customers further functionality now we have PHP and MySQL access on the Orpheus servers.
In 1979, John Edgley and his small team started designing and building a unique surveillance aircraft aircraft, the Optica. The Optica had many unique features making it a great aircraft, but the company unfortunately suffered problems including a crash in 1985 and an arson attack in 1987 which destroyed all but one of their aircraft which dissolved the company as a direct consequence. Work did start again under a new company in 1987 and the Optica acquired many new upgrades with five new aircraft built. The company changed hands again in 1990 and three more aircraft were planned but never finished. The project effectively halted. But in 2008, John Edgley bought back the rights to the aircraft and got the original team members back together again to pick up the Optica project after an 11 year lapse under a new company called AeroElvira Limited. They continue to improve the wonderful Optica aircraft, as well as working on other civil light aircraft, including the Sprint 160.
- Azure Publications
- Laura Ann's Designs
I was asked by a young girl who was starting up her own special gift business where her items are all personalised with unique laser etching done on a modern laser machine, to set up a web site where she can promote her products. This site also makes use of my KKCCC administration back-end where she can maintain the product details for herself. She admits to not being very confident on a computer, bit has kindly told me that she finds the KKCCC administration section of the site ease to understand and use.

Personal Web Sites
- Catherine Dales - Archer
Catherine Dales is a young archer from Garforth, Leeds who as been selected as one of just 60 students across the UK regions to attend the first ever England Regional Performance Academy Programme for archery in 2013. The aim of the programme is to prepare archers for the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games. This is a magnificent achievement for Catherine, and this website gives some further information about her archery achievements, her involvement in the programme and also how to sponsor her. Because whilst being selected for the programme is a great honour, none of the commitments involved for travel, accommodation, food, equipment, official uniform or the many other things involved in being a part of the programme are funded. So Catherine and her family have the burden of trying to find all the funding themselves and they asked me to prepare a website where they could advertise her achievements and possibly raise some sponsorship.
