We have worked with Patrick on a number of websites over several years including the design of many tools to make specifying our products easier. The consequences of this and subsequent work means that we are now ranking for very competitive phrases in search results.

Our work with Patrick and his team at PatPatWorks on the AstonBI website was a fascinating collaboration of ideas that helped us pin down a brief that we all bought into.
Thereafter, his team implemented a very fast and focussed creative website solution that really helped us to establish our core offering in a way that we found hard up to that point.
Simply put, it went way past our expectations and I don't say that lightly!
Paul Hogan - Sales Director - MBCS Limited
We were really happy with the way that PPW took our base requirements and turned them into the website we now have. Previously, we were always flying under the radar and had no means of showcasing our work as we completed it. Now we can add new projects very quickly from anywhere. Also, the website changes to suit mobiles, so we can point our customers at examples even if they are on site.

Some Work Examples
We worked closely with the client to produce a clean looking website that was simple to use, followed a logical, well-trodden path regarding structure, but allowed the fabric designs and colours to be front and centre. There is a lot of technical data associated with these fabrics and searchable content was a major factor.
This was a project to design a one-page website that flowed from top to bottom in a natural progression, revealing more details the further you scroll.
This was a true collaboration between the client and ourselves aiming to make the journey as easy and client friendly as possible.

This client are engineers and designers and are used to reading technical specifications as text in order to find the right size, angle, etc. Therefore the structure, once a user was into the class of products, lent itself to a more list style of navigation as a lead into the technical data. This is a work in progress as there is a lot of content and we are constantly looking at how to handle specific challenges. Suffice to say our client and their technical users are very happy with results so far.

Make your Website WORK
We all know that if we are in business we have to be online. We hire designers like me to create websites and then...
And then what?
I regularly come across business people that know they need a website but have not considered, and sometimes do not realise, that this is just the beginning. Imagine if this was a new warehouse for our business, or a new shop. We would employ a project manager, an architect, maybe an interior designer, a builder. We would have already worked out our plan of action and our reasons why we need the building. We would have factored into our business plan the costs and liabilities ongoing, and most importantly, we would have worked out the benefits to our business.
Websites are just part of the equation for being online. We hear people talk about SEO, PPC, good content, persuasive copy, but do we know how that all fits together? Do we know what is useful, and what is not? Do we know what to do next?
We are way past the point where 'having' a website is the end point for our online activities. If there is a point to being in business, then that point needs to be addressed by our website. If we need to sell more product, get more appointments, find more leads... then we need a plan, consult the right people and finance that operation. We also need to plan how we are going to measure the effectiveness of that operation.
So, you need to not only hire me (or someone you know who is very like me!), but do so on an ongoing basis. In doing so, you will be connecting with someone who knows other professionals that can help with your content strategy, sort out videos for your online campaigns or website, work on optimising your performance and who knows how to make sure that your website is improving and being tested for every page of your website that has a required result (I cannot think of any that would not!).
