Price Calculator and Order Form

The second part of the brief was to design a Price Calculator and Order Form based on the client’s services and prices. We provided a solution by creating a custom plugin with the help of a WordPress developer.

Mackie North was very helpful in explaining everything website related and come up with a modern, coherent and functional design. Working with him on a very complicated build has been great, he designed a bespoke online ordering system and created a new look for our tired website. His patience and guidance from design input to recommendations for developers and hosting was instrumental in achieving a beautiful website that can grow with our business.

Photography Contact Sheet

A contact sheet of portrait photography was created to be used as a style guide for photography.

I was a website novice before I was introduced to Mackie North. I knew I needed a website, but didn’t have a clue about the terminology, the questions I needed to ask or how to visualize the end result. Being partially sighted, this was particularly relevant. Mackie North went the extra mile to explain what I needed, tell me how things worked in a language that as a technophobe made sense to me. The end result was brilliant, and far exceeded my expectations. I am a very happy client and would wholeheartedly recommend Mackie North.

Mrs B Designs Ltd wanted an ecommerce store to sell her products online. My brief was to source a suitable WordPress WooCommerce theme and set it up.

Project involved sourcing and installing an e-commerce WordPress shop, retail theme and configuring the site. Including: setting up products, postage, prices, inventory and my account details. Customising CSS and HTML, formatting text and product images.

Mackie North was recommended to me by a friend and it was a great recommendation. I was a complete novice with technology and wanted to set up a website for my new business and I couldn’t have found a better web developer to do this for me. Mackie North are creative and knowledgeable of various software. With patience they guided me through the options available to me and gave tutorials on how to upload information, photographs and generally how to use the software. With an aftercare package too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks!
