Hello

Welcome.

I develop websites that use WordPress for content management.

Handcrafted sites for every client, built from a fast, stable code base with mobile first principles.

I’m all set to create for a variety of objectives: shop window, e-commerce, subscription.

I also offer a variety of other services. Take a look around. When you’re ready, get in touch.

Website Development

Look-and-feel designs with flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. I create iteratively and don’t waste time mocking up static visuals. Clients get plenty of opportunities to review my work and provide feedback.

Technical Support

Sometimes a thing just won’t do a thing, and it’s not always clear why. Get in touch and we’ll get that thing back to doing the thing it does. I provide one-to-one maintenance and troubleshooting services to clients across Dorset and Hampshire.

Website Hosting

All website development clients have access to my hosting services, but I also extend that same service to anyone who needs to find their website a home. I don’t restrict features, disk space, or bandwidth. I even take care of all the behind-the-scenes cPanel stuff.

Professional Services

Working with the web means keeping a varied skill set. As such, I’m able to offer assistance with things like graphic design, digital photography and image editing. Or, if you need some tech training, problem solving, or consultation services – I can help there too.

About Scattershot

Scattershot Creative is the trading name of freelance person Colin Thurston: primarily a web developer and techie. I am currently based in the UK town of Ringwood, Hampshire. I work locally, nationally, and internationally – remotely and in person.

Local Futures Online

With this project, I am aiming to get small public organisations online in an attractive, affordable, and sustainable format. There is a real demand, at a local level, for technical expertise and support. I feel I am well placed to provide just that.
