Stop By In Worthing (launched in summer 2018), is a new Airbnb home in Worthing West Sussex, with its own website.

To enable prospective customers to request a booking via Airbnb, the website has links to the host’s own profile on Airbnb.

The WordPress theme I used for the design is a professional theme created by Automattic, who are the people behind WordPress.  The theme was chosen because of its ability to portray a business in a more “arty” form.  On the home page the theme has a tall full-bleed image that stretches right across the visitors screen, thus giving immediate visual impact.

An unusual option for internal pages, is the theme’s ability to show content in split mode, with a tall and striking image to the left and associated text to the right.

Stop By In Worthing looks great on desktops, tablets, laptops and on smartphones.

Self Catering Wimbledon is a luxury studio right in the heart of Wimbledon.

The owner wanted a complete re-design of the website.  My brief was to make an eye catching design using a green Wimbledon colour palette that would complement the superb photographs on the website and truly reflect the excellent service offered.

I kept the navigation nice and simple and visitors can find any page within one click.  I also added a contrasting footer area that contains essential contact details and social sharing buttons.

The WordPress theme I used has a striking full width header image that immediately shows the desirability of this stunning studio.

I added a photo gallery with thumbnail click throughs to large images of the studio.

The result, I feel, is a website that looks great on both large and small smart phone screens.

When I was looking for a new website design, Andrzej was very helpful with his advice about design ideas and he was able to create a very attractive site that perfectly portrays my business ethos of providing a First Class Service to my customers.  Andrzej was able to sort out the search engine optimisation aspects and now my website shows on Page One of Google, for the service I offer.  I am very pleased with Andrzej’s on-going support and the very reasonable cost of setting the website up.

Barbara Geraghty wanted a website that would display well on both desktop computers and on mobile phones.  To aid readability she was keen to have text fonts at a fairly large size and wanted the visual experience to be uncluttered.  It was important for visitors to have easy access to all the website pages.  A further requirement was for Barbara to be able to update the website herself.

To achieve these aims I suggested a minimalistic approach, with a logo to the left, simple website navigation to the right and a header image that was not too tall, which would allow visitors to easily view her main content, with minimum vertical scrolling.

Barbara’s website uses an easy to read sans serif font for headers and paragraphs, has a simple top navigation structure and there is lots of white space to clearly separates the main elements such as the logo, navigation, header image and copy.

Thank you for a job well done. Your friendly, efficient, polite and helpful service made each stage of the website design and maintenance process stress-free.  I highly recommend your service to anyone.

St. Olave’s had a website in the “nineties” retro design style, which was not easy to maintain.  The church wanted a more modern looking design and it was important for them to have the ability to frequently and easily update content such as service times.  A requirement was for service times and contact information to be displayed on each page.  A “news” section was also needed, as was a facility for visitors to easily share the pages via social media.

I suggested a logo at the top left hand side, followed by a standard navigation bar, that would lead visitors to all the pages in one click.  A photograph of the High Altar was chosen as the header image throughout the website.

The font used is a clear sans serif typeface that is easy to read on both desktops and mobile phones.

Fr. Robert from St. Olave’s in Mitcham said:

I am delighted to wholeheartedly recommend Andrzej Rodziewicz to anyone looking to have an excellent, attractive, easy to maintain website.  I frequently receive comments of appreciation about the Website he designed for my Church.  At every stage during the set up process, he consulted and explained different options to ensure an excellent end result. Whether you are a business, a voluntary organisation, or a religious organisation, Andrzej is your man for websites!

There is a photo gallery with click-throughs to bigger images, which display in an attractive light-box setting.

I structured the website to have a blog page called News, where sermons uploaded by the vicar could be viewed.  I created a News feed on the website’s home page to shows the sermons.

For social sharing, I added Facebook, Twitter and email sharing buttons that enable website visitors to easily share individual pages.

I am the webmaster and editor at the Wimbledon Visitor website and created my own website (that’s the website you are looking at now), to show how I can promote your business.

My brief for this website was, as usual, a clear navigation structure leading to one click access to pages.  Lots of white space lead to an uncluttered and minimalistic look to the website.

Fonts throughout the website are large enough to display well on both desktop and mobile phone screens.

Social sharing is enabled by easy to use Facebook, Twitter and Google+ buttons.
