Bespoke Design Case Study for Counselling Client

David Whistance

On July 03, 2017 we completed a bespoke design project for this counselling client.

About the Client

David Whistance is an accredited Counsellor, Autogenic Therapist and Careers Adviser, working from in Southampton and Winchester.

Summary of Client Requirement

David opted initially for a Super Hero design for his new website. However, once he'd seen how this design option places a shadow effect around website images in the website content area, he opted instead for an Action Hero design, where the content images don't have a shadow displayed.

Design Considerations

David initially sent a standard Microsoft Clipart image of a compass to use for the design, but wasn't completely sure about copyright. So he opted for the safer option of choosing another licensed compass image from Shutterstock, which was included in the Silver design cost. Website colours were set in shades of turquoise and blue, both to contrast with the oranges of the compass image, and to mirror David's Wordpress website which his WebHealer website frequently links to.

Client Testimonial

"I enjoyed working with David to fine tune my new site design. We had useful conversations by email that gave me constructive food for thought about key design issues and options. Not only am I pleased with the result but I’ve also picked up some helpful tips along the way. Many thanks!"


Primary areas of focus: Southampton, Hampshire

Designer: David Law.

Project completed: July 03, 2017

New Stuff

We've been thinking hard over the Summer about how we can help more PHD Interactive clients get access to high quality unique design without incurring the costs that tend to accompany bespoke design. There is our Silver Design service of course which is very popular and costs only 39 but PHD Interactive challenged us to come up with something else - something even better!

And so we have. We are putting finishing touches now to our Silver Gallery service. The Silver Gallery is a collection of pre-made designs, each created by an experienced designer. Clients will be able to preview their PHD Interactive website using any of these designs and choose the one they like best. Each design will be unique so once it has been chosen and paid for, no one else can have it. The cost? All we can say for now is that you will like it.

Recent Client Work

“I felt from his response to my very first email that David understood my vision with regard to the upgrade of my website. He promptly provided comprehensive information on choice of images and the colour theme. My much improved website went live within a few days. David is extremely professional in his approach and I am happy to recommend David’s services without hesitation. I love the new look of my website!” See full case study
