Website design services
Stylish, professional websites and pages with error-free html. Editorial with correct grammar and punctuation. The Scribeworks design philosophy is to create websites with universal browser compatibility, rapid download of pages and high search engine listings. Website examples:
If you're looking to create a web store with a comprehensive shopping cart that is simple for your customers and for you, explore the Scribeworks Demonstration Web Store.
To inspect a client's website using an alternative shopping cart service provided by Scribeworks, visit a product page for Freshline Organics based in Perth, Western Australia.
If you want, I will also build into your website an address that can be viewed by people on their mobile telephone. If your mobile phone has web access, use it to check the Scribeworks mobile website at http://www.scribeworks.com.au/mobile.
Search engine placement and marketing services
To attract plenty of visitors and potential customers to your website, strong positioning in major search engines is essential during website design. Strategic use of background code and editorial can greatly benefit your web marketing by targeting relevant search queries. If you're not page 1 on Yahoo, Google, MSN, AltaVista, etc for various relevant search terms, you may as well not have a website. I'm a website designer who understands the search engine formula and can get you noticed by website visitors looking for your product. To test my ability to achieve high search rankings for your website, look at where some of my sites rank on Google, Yahoo and MSN.
Newspaper experience during the 1970/80s required extensive sub-editing and page layout skills refined 20 years later with Quark and InDesign - the design software for production of commercial magazines, newsletters, advertisements, business cards, etc. I write and design newsletters through to pre-press for various property agencies in Western Australia, and I can do the same for you. My writing skills ensure professional text within any finished publication... a crucial advantage over design firms that are fluent with code but poor with language.
After graduating from the Western Australia Institute of Technology (nee Curtin University) as a teenager, I worked as a senior journalist/editor for major regional newspapers in Western Australia and as a freelance journalist for the Western Mail and The West Australian newspapers in Perth. Since 1984 I have worked within the newsrooms of most major Perth radio stations - 6PR, 6IX, 6NR, 96FM, PMFM and 94.5FM. As a journalist I keep abreast of news, current affairs and issues affecting most industries. As a newspaper and magazine editor, I will sort out those "grammar gremlins" that plague your writing.
For the past 17 years I have been a property writer and sub-editor for most journals published by the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia, and for various major property franchise groups including Roy Weston, The Professionals and Century 21 in Perth. These services largely involves the research and ghost writing of weekly, monthly or occasional newsletters / media releases concerning real estate issues. I am currently (2011) consultant editor of the REIWA News quarterly industry magazine for members of the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia. Since 1990, I have written and published property research editorial concerning most municipalities in Western Australia - from the Kimberley to Esperance. I have a 21 year library updated daily with research and copyright stories concerning West Australian municipalities and most property issues... investment, legislation, mortgage management, strata title, property management, home maintenance, etc...
Commercial, academic or promotional text can be either written or repaired. I will ensure your editorial has correct grammar, punctuation, spelling and structure, as well as consistent style. The editorial layout, typography, tables, etc can be shaped professionally to suit your requirements. Editorial can be rewritten if necessary in consultation with the author. For years I have been fixing the editorial of leading West Australian corporations and institutes. My typing speed is above 100wpm, allowing me to rapidly research and write accurate text with perfect grammar, a fluid style and an appropriate marketing nuance.
After graduating as a Bachelor of Arts (major Journalism), I was employed in 1979 at the age of 19 as photographer for the Albany Advertiser newspaper and worked as chief photographer for the Great Southern Herald newspaper in Katanning, Western Australia, until 1983. In Perth, I have photographed weddings, fashion models, musicians, etc. for 35 years. I provide digital images along with skilled, rapid Photoshop image modification if required. An event can be photographed and delivered on the same day in digital format via email and/or CD. The photographs can be presented on a stylish web page within hours of being taken, allowing clients around the world to quickly and conveniently select their preferred images.
