About Me

My name is Louise Regan and I LOVE designing websites! With eight years studio experience at one of the UK's leading agencies and five years freelancing I have worked on countless websites of all shapes and sizes and have learnt the world of web inside out.

Every site that I create is bespoke, I take huge pride in creating a site that not only fits the clients needs but adds a little something extra too. I am both a designer and front end developer so create and build my sites, implementing a CMS if needed. For the really clever stuff I outsource to one of my magnificently clever developer friends.

The Process

  1. After gathering every bit of information and requirement for the site the planning begins. The navigation and layout are agreed and a skeleton site is created.
  2. Then the fun stuff! Design time. I normally provide a choice of two designs depending on the project.
  3. Once the design is agreed the clever bit begins, I code up the site and if required implement a CMS. My code is minimal and semantic - I like by sites to be beautiful inside and out!
  4. Content is added, the site is tested and hey presto it's complete!
