I offer to do a number of different things:

Design, produce & maintain websites for good causes, friends, charities, hobby sites and non profit making organisations.

and

Help people to use computers, tablets or iPads safely. This can be done at a distance by email or phone or if geographically possible on a direct face to face basis.

My experience in helping is fairly extensive and over a wide range of devices and software.

This can be anything from  "How do I do.....?"

or even

"I have been given this tablet as a present and I have no idea how to use it"

Age is not a barrier to safely using computers and how I can say that you might like to look here

If you think I can help you why not contact me and remember I do not charge for my time. Scroll down for more details.

I will design, build and maintain a website for you based on your ideas or even make your existing static website "responsive" to meet current standards .

I can  do some  photography for your site if required. The photo above I took in the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton, Derbyshire. The photograph was taken in July using my mobile phone camera.

I am also slowly learning to do  graphic design which hopefully gets better the more I use the software, this could include a logo. I am not proficient at this yet but willing to help if I can. The Spitfire below is one of my early efforts.

The logo below is one I produced from the explicit directions of my good friends at Peaks & Dales Advocacy. Because of the way I have done this it can also be printed up to A3 size without degrading so it can be used as a poster or letter head and is easy to make amendments to if needed.

I do not charge for my time, although you should be aware there can be other external costs associated with a website. This is normally in the region of £50 per year with a commitment of one year minimum but I can sometimes find offers reducing this to as little as £25. 

Having your own website also gives you your own email address. As my website here is russb.org.uk I have chosen my first email address to be russ@russb.org.uk but it can be anything before the @russb.org.uk so you can have several different such as admin@ or info@, the choice is yours.  

If I am just helping you to use a computer, tablet or iPad there will be no charge.

I have been helping to make websites for 19 years using the hyper text markup language (HTML). This is my way of helping good causes or friends using self taught skills at a higher level than I have been able to do previously.

It is primarily aimed at anyone who needs a website but cannot afford a professionally designed one. If I had a hobby, web design and helping people use computers is probably it.

Unique idea

I do not claim to be able to challenge the fantastic websites created by professional web designers using software I cannot afford, but I can give you a good looking website built to the latest standards. This can include slideshows of photographs, galleries and contact forms. If you have seen a website you like I might be able to do one similar.

All the sites I build are "responsive" which means they can be looked at on all devices from smartphones to the largest PC monitors. This also gives them a higher ranking than "non responsive" on Google search engine.

You might like to have a look at some of the sites  I have done shown below.  Just click on the image and use the back button to come back here.

Remember the design is as you direct and unique and not a "boxed kit".
