An English website designer in Bangkok

I am an English website designer in Bangkok, Thailand. I grew up just south of London, about three miles from Sandhurst Royal Military Academy, and began experimenting with web design around 2004. I find designing, coding and programming websites a constant challenge, and over the years have had the pleasure of working with some great clients. Standouts include a former Wall Street banker who oversaw one of the largest mergers in American corporate history, a New Zealander who's built a mini-empire devoted to the world of yachting, and a variety of sole traders whose ambition is infectious.

One of my designs, Mozart,  has been published (see the Web design portfolio section for details). Shown below is a page from the book Microsoft Expression Web for Dummies.  The screenshot shows the Mozart design.

Website Designer Bangkok

When we start working with new clients we usually ask them to point us to a few of their competitors' websites. This is a good way to get a feel for the industry and see how other companies in the sector are presenting themselves. We also ask clients to think carefully about color: an appealing, well balanced palette will usually consist of no more than two or three different colors, and it's important to choose a combination that will generate the appropriate look and feel.

Typography is an interesting and sometimes neglected aspect of website design. Most websites use either a serif font (Arial, Tahoma or Helvetica, for example), a sans-serif (such as Georgia, Times or Palatino), or a combination of the two. A standard approach found on many websites is to use serifs for headers and sans-serifs for content. These days it's very easy to embed "exotic" fonts to create a look and feel that's unique, interesting and appealing.
