I am English and operate website design studios in Bangkok and Songkhla. My clients include leading companies, government departments, NGOs and startups. One of my designs has been published; others have been showcased in various articles about website design. My services include website design (in Bangkok and Songkhla), e-commerce, responsive design for tablets and smartphones, SEO and social media integration. A few of the more recent websites I've made are described below.
Jet Asia Airways / Bangkok, Thailand
This is the website I designed for JetAsia in Bangkok, a 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.
ISO 9001 Council / Zurich, Switzerland
Headquartered in Switzerland, the ISO 9001 Council is a non-profit organization that offers information and advice about the international standard, ISO 9001. The council has a global membership and has assisted companies in more than 20 countries to achieve full ISO 9001 certification.
Wichanun & Family / Bangkok, Thailand
This is a website I designed for Wichanun & Family in Bangkok, Thailand's leading manufacturer and exporter of artificial, soft-wooden flowers. The company produces more than 200 different designs and exhibits annually at major home decoration fairs in Frankfurt, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Johannesburg.
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 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 (AB Website Design 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.
