“Working on our new Ritva Westenius website has been a huge challenge with emails flying, dealing with not just one but two hysterical woman, photographs going up then going down, changing our minds, changing our minds back again…..Nevertheless throughout the process John has maintained his professionalism with sound calm advise and honesty. John Cove is the most gentle of men & could not be recommended more highly.”

I developed a bespoke theme in WordPress and online shop for Windmill Flowers.  Given my experience, I was given a free reign on the look and feel of the web site.  As Windmill Flowers sell flower arrangements and bouquets, gifts and so on I felt the power of product delivery is in imagery with impact and good content.  With this in mind, I created a front page with a branded side navigation menu and a full screen scaling slideshow with sub-pages having a clean layout with further imagery and slideshows.

“John has assisted us with the implementation of our website and throughout his approach has been one of working together so as to create the look and feel that we were after for our website. John spent time going through everything thoroughly sharing his thoughts and experience in a constructive and effective manner. I can highly recommend the benefits of using an independent web site designer versus a large organisation that promises the earth but fails to deliver.” MARY WOOLCOT, WINDMILL FLOWERS.
