SERVICES

HOSTING ADMINISTRATION

As part of my comprehensive service, I am happy to register your domain name, launch your website on all the major search engines and host and maintain your site via a highly reputable, tried and tested hosting company. It all adds up to a service that provides full administration and peace of mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST

If you have asked yourself, "Do I really need a website?" and your answer is “yes”, you need to know that your money is going to create a website that epitomises the best of your business, that you’re proud of, that will grow as you grow. Choose me to build your website and you’ll get all of those things. Plus someone who will listen. Someone easily accessible day or night. Someone who will work tirelessly until I get an enthusiastic thumbs up. Someone who will create an individual website designed to maximise your specific business, for a budget that won’t break the bank. Most importantly, someone you can trust. But don’t take my word for it call any of my clients for a reference.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I have over 20 years experience in graphic design and have created literally thousands of promotional items for a myriad of businesses. Everything from point of sale mobiles, bus-sides, banners, posters and exhibition display units, to flyers, stationery, business cards, magnetic car signs, loyalty cards and more. I believe each business is unique, so the websites I create reflect that individuality. With this in mind, rather than using standard templates and photographs to create a website that looks pretty much like countless other websites, I prefer to capture the very essence of your business - the reason why customers would come to you rather than go elsewhere. I then create original graphics and unique layouts that reflect the persona and image of your specific business. In a nutshell, any client who comes to me can expect a highly individual website designed to maximise image and help the business stand out from the crowd (See my Website Samples below). The same principle applies to any advertising, promotions and direct mail that might be required.

PROFESSIONAL COPYWRITING

My copywriter - Joanna Allen - comes from an Advertising background and worked at many of London’s top advertising agencies. Abbot Mead Vickers BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi and DDB to name but three. With several awards and a portfolio of campaigns including Top Shop, BT, American Airlines, Jack Daniels, Royal Mail, Heinz, IBM and Volkswagen under her belt, Joanna set up a small creative consultancy. Having created several websites for other people, she decided – with my help – to create a website for herself and Mad About Jewellery was born. Since jewellery, like clothes, is constantly changing, the site needs regular updates to keep up with trends, therefore a great deal of Joanna’s time is taken up in writing for the site, whilst I am constantly employing new techniques to keep it fresh. This works for the benefit of other websites I – or we - create because we are consistently at the leading edge of style, content and technology.

VIDEO EDITING AND DEPLOYMENT

Video can be a highly effective media tool when used correctly. So if you have a video you want to include on your website I can provide an editing service that will not only elevate your footage to a professional standard but prepare the correct file types and optimisation for maximum impact and target audience coverage.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

These days it’s essential that any website created can be viewed on everything from mobile phones, tablets, notebooks and laptops to large state-of-the-art desktop computers. In short, it needs to be responsive. To automatically adjust so that your message can be delivered with maximum impact, regardless of the size of screen it is viewed on. I have all the necessary creative and technical expertise to ensure that all the websites I create are fully responsive. Furthermore, if you have a pre-smartphone website, I am happy to reconstruct it so that it can accommodate the multitude of devices available today.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

It sounds impressive and promises the earth. A magic bullet to getting your name and website before thousands of eager-to-buy customers 24/7! Whilst this may be easy for big companies with equally big budgets, the marketplace is highly competitive, so it’s incredibly difficult for small companies with modest budgets to achieve a place on those all-important first few pages. What’s more, the Search engines will only help you get to the top of the listings if you build your website strictly according to their rules. Whilst I cannot promise top rankings immediately, I can promise that any website I build, will offer you the best possible chance of long-term success in the shortest possible time.

DOMAIN REGISTRATION & SETUP

I can help you register your domain correctly, making sure it is in your name. I can help with nameservers, DNS setup, web-forwarding, email setup, forwarding and automated responders. Domain names can be very inexpensive if you know where to buy. Let me help make this a worry-free process.

WHAT MY CUSTOMERS SAY

"We were fortunate to secure the services of Designmark and its creative genius Mark Newton-Carter to design and set up our website. The flair, combined with attention to our own profile and the needs of the customers we serve which we got from Designmark has given us a website which has stood the test of time excellently with occasional tweaking from Mark’s responsive service. Highly recommended." Michael Thomson - Director - Trade Solutions (Scotland) Ltd.

I run the jewellery website madaboutjewellery.co.uk, which Mark and I created back in 2001 – me in charge of words, Mark in charge of design. Over the years the website has grown massively in content and complexity, and this has required major and ongoing input in terms of design and technology. Thanks to Mark, the website looks completely different from other jewellery sites and carries many unique features, such as the popular “Get the Look” section, which highlights the latest fashion trends. And since jewellery, like fashion, is constantly changing, both the products and the style of the website must be updated on a regular basis to keep it fresh and on-trend. Happily, throughout the years Mark has remained at the cutting edge of design, constantly utilising new technologies to update the site’s visual appearance, whilst also accommodating the constantly-changing whims of Google and the IT industry. Always creative, always on hand to discuss ideas, always a pleasure to work with, Mark is the consummate professional and trust me, if he builds your website, you can look forward to a site that will exceed all your expectations, both now and in the future.
Jo Allen - MadAboutJewellery.co.uk

"Had a great business logo but no website! A trusted friend introduced me to MNC. Following a "Skype" meeting construction began. Via web-link I was able to view progress & agree amendments. The process from start to finish was a pleasure, challenging at times but exciting, completed within time & on budget. I highly recommend DesignMark. MNC is an excellent designer with the exceptional ability to transform vision and direction into on target creative." Steve Bullock - Owner Thought4Food Consultancy Ltd.

“Mark has been working and designing Kidz Kabin websites for almost 5 years. He has great insight and develops a keen understanding into what is needed for a particular industry, working closely with key players. His intuitive approach ensures our website is attractive, maintains a high profile and is kept up to date. His response time is excellent and he has always been a pleasure to work with.“
Linda Symons - Principal - Kidz Kabin Nursery


"I asked mark if he could make a website for my new business, he took some information from me and then went and created a masterpiece beyond expectation! He gave me confidence in his consummate ability from the initial meeting and kept me informed every step of the way until he finally unveiled an awesome work of art. I would certainly ask him again to work his magic and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending him to anyone who wants a diligent, professional service which will exceed your expectations too and on top of all this he is a true Gent."
Mark Farrant - Security Consultant


"Your website design is a big success. Nearly everybody who has made the visit to my site have come back to me with favourable comments. The lead in to the galleries works very well and what a striking introduction page. I’m also very grateful to Annie Moore for her recommending me to your Web design company."
Raymond Dean - Photographer


"For me Mark is one of the very best web designers. He has flair, originality and takes great care in creating what you, the client needs."
Annie Moore
