Just launched a HTML5/CSS3 responsive website, since most people will only ever visit on mobile I figured I’d show off the desktop experience by video! Features content security policy headers which I’m really enjoying implementing, google rich snippets and any other SEO markup I could include for search engines!

Does anyone remember when guestbooks were popular? :D

Back in the 90’s a guestbook was the height of style, your website had a few static pages, but then a magical link called ‘guestbook’ allowed people to post public messages and their name. The guestbook showed off how popular you were really!

Ooooo I have 300 guestbook comments how cool!!

Flat file database free web sites

Recently I have had the opportunity to play around with a database free CMS called GRAV. What a pleasure it is to code and use!

First of all it comes with an admin plugin, where I can publish new pages, view stats, edit content, upload images, basically everything a CMS with a database can do. I often forgot while working with GRAV that there isn’t a database driving it, which just shows how flawless the admin interface is.

Taken from the GRAV website below:

Grav is not your average CMS. It’s an open source, flat-file NoDB CMS written for PHP 5.5.9+ that is focused on being crazy fast, easy to learn and use, with powerful features to enable it be easily extended.

Web Design Testimonials

Hilary at her Company Proximo Design created a webpage for me at Gourmet Burger Bistro this year. I wanted to get it up and running quickly and I could not have been more satisfied with the speed and quality of her results.
Best of luck in the future Hilary and I look forward to continuing our business relationship.

“I worked with Hilary for a time and during that period I found her to be extremely helpful and articulate. Her work was of highest standard and I was also able to observe how she interacted with her clients. While providing a top class service she maintained friendly and helpful services with them, listened to what they wanted and made appropriate suggestions. Hilary also assisted me with my work and provides services to the local community at large. I have no hesitation in recommending Hilary for any work.”

Superb designs, very efficient web design, best advice and we always got the feeling she was always looking after us.
