Tom Gillett

Freelance web design, web development & managed hosting.


Website & Interface Design

Semantic markup. Perfect CSS. Cross-browser compatibility. I am passionate about web standards, semantic markup and accessibility. I build interactive and intuitive user interfaces. I design fine websites, whether from scratch, refreshing existing sites or theming off-the-shelf solutions like Drupal and WordPress.

Content Management

Your website is about you. You should be in control. CMS allow you to update your site whenever you want, in a user-friendly manner. I offer Drupal and WordPress installations, theming and module development alongside bespoke Content Management System development for those with more specific requirements.

Web Applications

Ambitious projects begin at the drawing board. If you have specific needs or need to design and build a fully-fledged application from the ground up, I have the skills and networks required to develop your perfect solution. Want to talk Frameworks, SQL, NoSQL, Web Service integration and Agile?

Email Marketing

Get your email where it needs to be, when it needs to be. Email marketing is trackable and offers a fantastic ROI. My solutions provide trackable email direct to your clients’ inbox. Whether taking your first steps, designing great-looking templates or trying to establish why existing campaigns aren’t performing, I can help.

Managed Hosting

I take the hassle out of hosting. My UK and US based servers ensure the best geographic placement and an optimal environment tailored specifically to the requirements of your site. Secure, backed-up and monitored, I do the hard work so that you don’t have to.

Custom Search Engines

Google doesn’t always have the answer! If you are looking for a specialised, custom and/or scalable solution for your sites, applications or data, I can help. Working with enterprise-class open source solutions, I can tailor your search to your requirements.

Search Engine Optimisation

Getting a site to perform well can be confusing. Fed up of misinformation? I don’t offer magic solutions, but can provide legitimate, tried and tested recommendations that will improve that vital placement.
