100% Carbon Neutral Hosting with The Pig Farmer & UK Fast

Posted on June 8th, by Manager in Diary, News, The Office. Comments Off on 100% Carbon Neutral Hosting with The Pig Farmer & UK Fast

I am intending to write a full report on my move from shared hosting with Heartinternet, to a new dedicated server with UK Fast soon – but meanwhile I wanted to thank my clients for their co-operation and let them know about their new ‘carbon neutral’ hosting.

That’s right, if your company has their website and email hosted with John Maxwell Ltd via RuckinRugby or The Pig farmer, then your entire operation is 100% Carbon Neutral!

Climate change is one of the most critical issues facing the world so it’s important for companies to demonstrate a responsible reputation.

John Maxwell Limited is proud to be working with UKFast, the 1st hosting provider to be 100% carbon neutral under BSI PAS 2060.

This means you can be confident that all carbon emissions associated with the hosting of any site through John Maxwell Ltd have been … Read More »

As all of you will now know, my web hosts ‘Heartinternet’ had a major outage recently, you can read bout it here:



Website for RocUp Holidays

Posted on June 23rd, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer. No Comments

What a thoroughly enjoyable project this was! The scenario was perfect in all ways and the end result was better than anything myself or the client had imagined … it doesn’t get any better than that.

My good friend Catherine Spencer put me in touch with a remarkable young lady called Bonita Norris who needed a website design ASAP for a new project she was starting. Bonita is the youngest person on record to reach both the summit of Mt. Everest and the North pole … she did both by 22. Google it, she’s phenomenal.

Bonita gave me complete artistic freedom and as a result shot to the top of my priority list and released the creative juices! I pinged a message to my graphics guru in Melbourne Anthony Costa and he set about creating a brand. The company was to be … Read More »



The Posh Kebab Company

Posted on April 8th, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer. No Comments

Hannah & Duncan Nobbs were already clients of mine, having come to me for their Partridge Farm website at the end of last year. This project was for an ‘offshoot’ of theirs called ‘The Posh Kebab Company’. Hannah & Duncan had long been attending street food fairs and farmers markets to sell their wares and frequently sold their lush kebabs at these events – much to everyone’s delight … they are fantastic!

To that end, they TM’d the name, got in touch with our partner Andrew Lathwell to sort out a logo and gave us a call about the website – job done. As always we were going for striking, simple and beautiful. The one thing I always ask my clients to provide in order to ensure these fundamental elements are achieved, is professional photography – and on this occasion the client … Read More »



Eve Copper’s coming out

Posted on March 28th, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer, Wordpress. No Comments

Eve is a fantastically talented fashion designer and dressmaker who lives just down the road, well … canal – from my office. I have seen her photography and shots of people modelling her clothes and so I was aware of the quality I’d be working with, so when she asked for a website it was a no-brainer.



Partridge Farm Tiverton

Hannah was a great client as she was open minded and always happy to listen, but she also knew what she wanted and what she thought was best for her business. I can always give advice and recommendations based on what I have experienced, but nobody knows my client’s business better than they do.



JMC Recycling Ltd

Posted on September 12th, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer, Wordpress. No Comments

I was recommended to Sally at JMC Recycling by a work partner and a friend, so that is always a nice way to start a project. JMC had a website but it was falling off the Google rankings and starting to look a bit dated and tired. The website was already on Wordpress – which was handy for exports and back-ups etc … but it was using a bespoke and very messy theme, which did complicate issues.



Bespoke Installations

Posted on June 12th, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer, Wordpress. No Comments

The very 1st site I created back in 2004 was for Michael Blake, and we have this month replaced it with a brand new, responsive wordpress build and new branding to boot.



Fancy’s Cottage goes live

Posted on April 3rd, by Manager in News, Projects, The Pig Farmer, Wordpress. No Comments

After a number of delays, we have finally gone live with a new website for Fancy’s cottage in Dartmouth. I visited Vicky Maxwell, the owner a week or so ago in order to run through the CMS and Booking system, both of which are extremely easy to use.



The Ash Stud

Posted on September 25th, by Manager in Delicious, Diary, News, Projects, The Pig Farmer. No Comments

Jana Khayat has spent several years building a small, beautiful horse stud in Devon – and it was time to stop hiding and show it off to the world. After the initial phone call, I was pretty in the dark on this one – all I knew was that I had been recommended by the remarkably talented equine photographer, Fiona Crawford.
