Hello. My name's Dom Stapleton and I live in Westcliff-on-Sea. By day, I work as a marketing manager. By night, I design web sites.
I love music, cycling and binge-watching shows on Netflix. But I'm happiest when I'm designing websites.
Things I made earlier
ByWriters is a multi-author blog covering a range of subjects, from current affairs and culture to comedy and the arts. The design is clean and modern with an emphasis on typography over imagery.
I built it on WordPress, which is a popular content management system. I've designed the site to be fully responsive, which means it adapts to fit the different screen sizes of PCs, tablets and mobiles.

What can I say...? Dom has done an outstanding job on the site, really great work. He's been reliable and professional, having helped me with the most ridiculous queries I've had at all hours! Always personable, and very easy to get along with, which made bouncing ideas off each other all the easier. Most importantly, the passion he has for web design comes through in his work. I'd hire him again in an instant, so should you.Jordan Deadman, editor
InsureandGo emailsInsureandGo emails
In late 2015, I redesigned the customer emails for InsureandGo, which is one of the UK's largest travel insurance specialists. InsureandGo send the emails to customers when they get a quote, or buy or make changes to their policy.
I designed the templates to match the company's brand and include clear calls-to-action. I also worked hard to make sure the emails looked right in the different email clients, many of which can be very fussy.Buy a policy to get one
Essex Blast SolutionsEssex Blast Solutions
I designed this website in May 2015 for an Essex-based abrasive blasting company. The site includes a before-and-after image slider on the homepage, a lightbox gallery and a contact form which lets potential clients upload photos to send with their enquiries.

We're really chuffed with the work Dom did on the website. It's exactly what we asked for and more.Jake Sach, company director
I designed this website in late 2014 for a consulting company which operates across Europe. The purpose of the website is to advertise the company's services, and then direct potential clients to a contact form so they can get in touch. The footer of the website includes a news widget which pulls live information from an RSS feed.

We would recommend Dom's work to any company requiring a cost-effective and professional solution.Phil & Denise Moffat, directors
The Hockley Flower ShopThe Hockley Flower Shop
I designed this website in September 2014 for a local business in Hockley. The website runs on WordPress, which is a popular content management system. Customers can order products directly from the website thanks to WooCommerce, which is a highly customisable ecommerce platform.
The site is fully responsive, meaning it adapts to fit the screen size whether it's viewed on a desktop PC, a tablet or a mobile. Within only a few months of being launched, the website already began to rank as the number one result in Google for "hockley florist", which is the business's key search term.

Many of our sales come through the website, and without Dom, we probably wouldn't have had so many!Nick Sahlene, owner
Your HomepageYour Homepage
This is a website I made to replace the iGoogle homepage, which was discontinued in November 2013. I created it for myself and a few friends and family members who previously relied on iGoogle as their browser's homepage.
Your Homepage includes widgets for the local weather, RSS feeds and trending topics on Twitter. It also includes a widget which can be used to embed a webpage. Each widget can be customised with an array of different options.See for yourself
