I am a freelance web developer designing websites for small businesses and organisations. I especially enjoy working with charities and ethical businesses. I recently completed a two year contract to redevelop the content for Edinburgh's Museums and Galleries website which now attracts over 600 visitors a day.

The Modem Operandi website design process involves the client at every stage:
- The project begins with a briefing meeting. This is usually face to face but can be by telephone or e-mail. We will then send you an outline project proposal including the planning stages, an estimate of costs and timescale.
- On acceptance of our outline proposal we will meet with you to discuss the project scope. This includes the site’s content, technical and design requirements as well as a detailed breakdown of costs, project milestones, responsibilities and ongoing support. The details will be listed in a project specification document.
- If you have not already taken time to research your competitors, your audience or customers and think about your key objectives we will include a research and testing phase. At the end of this stage we will have a sitemap and a wireframe layout of the main page templates including the navigation links.
- Once we have a sitemap and page templates we will work on the design. Draft designs will be discussed with you and revised until we have a design that you are happy to sign-off.
- In the development phase we will provide regular updates through a test server so that you can check the test site against the project specification document and design.
- When you are happy with the test site we will move on to the deployment of the site on the web server. At this point we will provide details of web metrics, mailing-list retrieval, ongoing SEO and any CMS training you might require.
- We will provide ongoing support as agreed in the project specification.
