Website design and developed by Miles Essex

Examples of my work

Chris Simpson

After a series of set backs with a digital agency and the clock ticking towards his Photo London show, Chris came to me for assistance. With designs partially completed I developed these to create the site as it is today. It was a great pleasure to work on, I’m really happy with the result. It ties neatly in with the beautiful printed material Chris has produced documenting his exceptional photographs. The site is easy for Chris to edit and uses my gallery system to display his photographs.

The icing on the cake for me is the PDF lightbox tool we created, enabling visitors to make and share their own selections of Chris’s photographs. Try it for yourself.

Dante Quartet

With a number of important events in the pipeline the Dante Quartet’s old website was in need of a refresh when I was contacted back in 2016. I worked with Krysia to bring existing photographs and styling from the quartet’s publicity material. This site was quick to build and kept to budget.

Holder & Combes

I’ve been working with Holder & Combes since 2010. Their site has evolved a lot since then. We’re now on our third edition. This latest version being a reskin of my previous design. We wanted to liven up the style but it was important not to tinker with the content or structure since the site ranks very highly on search engines.

By bringing illustrated characters into the branding we have lightened up the image while keeping it businesslike. Nick and Ed approved my first visual and from there I sourced final images and prepared mockups for inner pages. With those signed off I handed the artwork over to my friends at to complete the coding and fit to the site.
