Lets get this show on the road

Phatworks Digital help's new and established businesses create a strong online presence.

We forward with meaning and pull our backgrounds in Digital Media and Video/online Marketing together to create great strategies that make sense to the end user. In the Web world they call people who can cross these different platforms a ‘unicorn’ (a rare find). When we approach a project we put our heart and soul into it. This is more than just a job to us.

We get excited when we hear critique or positive feedback; they are both important to achieve great results.

Let’s build something amazing together and make you proud of your offering.

Right and wrong do not exist in graphic design. There is only effective and non-effective communication. 


Responsive Design is for all devices

With the broad array of devices now available, the web community has embraced a new method. ‘Responsive Design’ creates an environment that changes with each device that is used.

There are more people using portable devices than ever before. Customers will appreciate that you went to the effort to make it easier for them to operate your site on their device of choice.

Ecommerce Websites with all the trimmings

With all the plug-in’s for Woocommerce and Wordpress, the process of incorporating products into your responsive site has really stepped up a notch.

Creating a safe and secure experience for your customers to buy online is really important. Think about the sites you trust and why you trust them and then apply those methods to your site.

SEO Tactics (Search Engine Optimisation)

SEO tactics involve an array of things you can do to help Google find your page. This can include having descriptions for your pages, using keywords 4% to 6% of the time, having a robots.txt and sitemap.xml files, using header tags appropriately and naming all your images.

Reports can be generated to see how well you are doing and help you to make changes to improve your ranking.

I work hard to make building your website an enjoyable experience for the both of us, just ask one of my happy customers. Skip through the slider circles or arrows to view them all.

Working with Kenny has been a real pleasure. It is evident that he has done his research on what I do and has helped me clearly define my offering to my clientele. He is a business strategist as much as he is a Web Designer. I couldn't be happier...

Digital Strategies help you get ahead

There are many ways to get ahead online and not all of them are self-evident. A clear digital strategy can define the way you focus your energy online and help your business to achieve its goals. There are programs you can use to improve connectivity, save time and improve performance. 

Pay per click (PPC) advertising 

Google Adwords (Text Ads) and Google Merchant (Picture Ads) are a great place to start when building a customer base online. They are the ads that you see on the right hand side of your search results when you Google.

When people need an answer to a question, they turn to Google and this is where you will have the opportunity to give them an answer. Advertising on Google is a bit harder than it looks and if not managed properly, it can waste money and attract the wrong audience.

Email Marketing has made a big comeback

Email advertising has changed a lot over the last few years. It's a good idea to have a look at the promotional emails that you like and study them.

What was it about them that made you appreciate what they had to offer? I can help you explore some options that will excite your customers and show you how to track user interaction.

Video is a great way
to communicate

Videos need to be short, compelling, informative and offer something new. They give you a chance to have a conversation with your audience and keep them up to date with what your business is doing.

Videos teach us things that we might never have thought possible. It is this wonder and excitement that your videos need to encapsulate in order to be successful. They can make you smile, create trust, excite you and then act on those emotions. 

Developing a game plan for your video

There are lots of ways to approach a video shoot and preparation is the key. This does not mean that the process needs to be rigid. You need to allow room for exciting things to happen.

People respond best to real situations, conversations and actions. They can tell a fake a mile away. When you are not used to being in front of a camera, it can be hard to perform on cue. I try to create an environment where you can be yourself in your movement and in your vocal content. 

Shooting a series of videos

It’s a good idea to shoot multiple videos at the same time so you can have videos on hand for answering possible customer questions, promotions and updates for any events coming up.

Think about celebrating milestones, holidays and creating competitions that could use videos to enhance interaction. 

Videos are are
fun and informative

I love creating videos with my clients because it gives me the opportunity to develop their message to their customers by allowing them to speak to them.

Clean lines and
good designs

It is always important to have great fonts and graphics in your branding strategy. This goes beyond your logo and key colours.

There are general themes that drive a brand’s graphic content. A good designer will search all aspects of your business to find the images and shapes that will clarify the message you intend for your audience.

Turn your creative
ideas into something

The only way to differentiate yourself in the market from your competitors is to come up with creative ways to express your brand’s position.

Your point of difference comes from creating well-researched ideas that will enlighten your audience. It can be a breath of fresh air in a stale environment.  

Staying in the loop
with current IT trends

As a designer, it’s important to be in the loop with training regimes that keep you on top of your game.

I use Team Treehouse online learning resources and Web and design forums to keep up to date with current trends in IT and web design. 

Create form and function
that looks really good...

I create and source graphics that match the emotional content of the subject matter. I am trained in Photoshop and Illustrator and i have a good eye for design.

How to turn complex theories into
well structured visualisations

Writing a thesis is one of the most rewarding things you can do in your life. You’ll put your heart and soul into the text but having strong visuals (diagrams) can help drive home the key points you want to make. I have really enjoyed every thesis diagram that I have drawn.

In order to do a good job, I have to understand complex theories about things that I would never have thought about. Let’s create something awesome that will add to the amazing job you have already done. It’s not all about keeping your supervisor happy but it will help when they are pleased with the result too.
