Portfolio- Castria Web Design
Ronnie Pattison is a professional artist who specialises in pet portraits and landscapes. A talented oil painter, he can be found painting in his shop window in Low Fell, Gateshead.
Ronnie asked me to make him a website that would help local customers who may not know about him to find out about him and his services doing art commissions from his shop.Take a look
Long Play Cafe
Long Play Cafe is a relaxed coffee and vinyl shop located in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. They wanted a site design that reflected the feel and atmosphere of a coffee shop and built with a CMS (Joomla) to allow easy editing by themselves. They also asked me to design their logo.
Long Play Cafe are (at time of writing) in the top 10 cafés in Newcastle on tripadvisor.co.ukTake a look
Apple Report is a tech blog about all things Apple. The owner asked for something clear, modern, responsive and a design which hinted at Apple old and new. I also designed their logo.
The site needed to look good on all screen sizes, from iPhones to Mac desktops.
Gaming Mind is a blog and affiliate website all about video games. My customer wanted a website where he could write articles and reviews about his hobby, video games. Visitors are able to buy items on the site that go through Amazon's system. I also designed the logo for this website.
Fitness Pulse is another blog and affiliate site. The purpose of this site is to write articles relating to fitness and well being and also reviews of products. The site is integrated with an Amazon affiliate shopping cart system. The site needed to be sleek and modern. The logo is one I designed also. This site is no longer online.
Red Hot Designs
It may seem counter intuitive for a web designer to make a competing website for web design services. The owner of the website's intention was actually to sub-contract the work out to designers like myself so it makes more sense than it may at first seem. They also cater to custom hosting, banners, logo design and WHMCS licenses. This site is no longer online.
