Originally from the North West, I have a strong background in IT, web design and frontend development.
I have been working with digital/web technologies since the late 1990’s when as a post-graduate researcher at CASA, UCL I developed an online map-based decision-making tool with the Environment Agency.
Since then I’ve worked in private consultancy for 8 years before moving into professional freelance design & development and forming Laughing Rabbit Web Design.
My core web design skillset and tools include:
Responsive website design, Frontend development, CSS, HTML/HTML5, PHP, MySQL, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Illustrator, Concrete5 CMS.
I have great inter-personal skills and can be relied on to get a job done to a high standard.

"Not only am I delighted with the end result of the Honalee Media website but I am equally happy with the process of it’s design, which is what sets Bek at Laughing Rabbit apart. I had many quotes from web design companies who seemed only to want to keep the process shrouded in mystery and so be able to charge additional costs for every question asked! Bek at Laughing Rabbit has not only taken time to tailor my website to my individual needs but also to understand the business it is promoting first. In doing so there has always been an exceptional level of service and customer care - no jargon, just helpful, positive and flexible communication, de-mystifying the whole process. As a result, I would not hesitate to recommend her."

All my websites are uniquely designed for each client on an individual basis. Once a design has been approved I hand code all HTML and CSS to ensure that it matches the design in current popular, and some older less popular browsers.
All my front-end work is coded with standards based principles and accessibility in mind.
When producing your logo or icons/elements for your website I'll always take time to discuss your business so it's perfect for you and your budget.
All my graphics are first hand drawn and then scanned into & completed in Adobe Illustrator. This means that I can produce a logo/icon in any number of formats for either print or web.
If a project involves a Content Management System I'll always take time to thoroughly teach you how to use the system. I also provide support documentation as standard.
All my websites are coded with SEO in mind to help your website perform better. I can advise you about content & if you need hosting & url registration I can sort this out for you too.
