I am English and operate website design studios in Bangkok and Songkhla. My clients include leading companies, government departments, NGOs and startups.
I have been making websites since 2006. One of my designs has been published; others have been showcased in articles about website design. All sites I make are unique: I never use templates, artwork is custom-designed and photography is managed by professional studios. My services include website design (in Bangkok and Songkhla), e-commerce (PayPal and Ultracart), responsive design for mobiles, SEO and social media integration. A selection of websites I've made is detailed below.
Client: Azimut Yachts Thailand
Sector: Marine / Leisure
Location: Bangkok & Phuket
Azimut Yachts is an Italian company that designs and builds the world's largest range of luxury yachts. This is the website I designed for the company's official dealer in Bangkok. The pre-owned section is managed by the client and details numerous multimillion dollar vessels on sale in Thailand and Europe.
Client: Department of Highways
Sector: Thai Government
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
This is a Thai-language website I made for an office of Thailand's Department of Highways, a division of the Ministry of Transport in Bangkok. The design is colorful and thematic, and features a content management system (CMS) that allows government staff to login and maintain all aspects of the site.
Client: Jet Asia Airways
Sector: Airline / Aviation
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
This is the website I designed for JetAsia in Bangkok, a popular Thai airline which operates scheduled flights to Korea and China. Flights depart Thailand from Suvarnabhumi (Bangkok) and Phuket International Airport. The site is multilingual and can be viewed in English, Thai, Japanese and Chinese.
Website design in Bangkok / Songkhla
AJAX is a technology used to add richness and interactivity to web pages. It was invented by a Google employee and has become a standard feature on many modern websites.
In terms of website design, an API can be thought of as a snippet of code for accessing popular services such as Google maps.
A blog is a good way of keeping a website fresh and up to date. Many blogging packages are available: some are easy to set up and manage; others are feature-rich and more complicated.
A browser is the program you use to view web pages. Popular browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome. Some people are surprised to learn that different browsers can often display the same web page differently. Because of this, thorough testing in all major browsers is essential when designing websites.
A CMS, or Content Management System, is an admin area that can be used to update, edit or delete website content. Some Content Management Systems are very basic; others give site owners control over almost every aspect of their site.
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a website design language used to control the layout and presentation of web pages.
A database is really just a collection of information. The information might be the names and addresses of your clients; it might be an inventory of your stock; or it might be a listing of room rates and availability at a hotel.
A domain name is basically the address of a website; ie, abc.com.
Websites need to be hosted on a server. Choosing a web hosting package is similar to choosing a service provider for a mobile phone: numerous packages are available; variations in price and quality can be considerable.
HTML, or Hypertext Markup Language, is the core language used for making websites. Many website designers use a version of the language called XHTML.
PHP, or PHP Hypertext Protocol, is a programming language used to manage information on the server. It is often used in conjunction with AJAX to control the appearance and content of web pages.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, refers to the techniques employed to help websites achieve high rankings in search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. This website, for example (website design in Bangkok), has been optimized for search terms such as website design in Bangkok.
SQL, or Structured Query Language, is a language used for retrieving information from a database.
