Hello, this is me, Mandy Stephens. I have worked in communications for over 20 years, and now specialise in website design for small businesses. I help clients to produce sites which really reflect them and what their business is about, so they can attract the right customers.
My background in marketing is something I bring to all my work. A website should present the right information to the right people (ie your clients!) as quickly, clearly and effectively as possible, so that’s what I focus on.
I work with clients both locally and much further afield. I’d love to hear from you – please contact me to discuss your next project.
After doing a degree in Behavioural Sciences, I worked as a freelance desktop publisher – producing marketing, training and publicity materials for a wide variety of clients. I also trained in electronic transcription, supporting hearing-impaired students in university lectures.
In 1997 I took on the full time position of marketing manager at WOMAD, an international arts organisation (Peter Gabriel’s ‘World of Music, Arts and Dance’ www.womad.org), where I stayed for 10 years.
Our family moved from the West Country to the Isle of Wight in 2008. This was a move back home for my Islander husband Pete (check out his website at www.islandcom.co.uk if you need a book-keeper / accountant!).
In addition to web design I’m also an inspector for the Sawday’s guides, discovering special places to stay on the Isle of Wight.
