About Me

COMMUNICATION THROUGH DESIGN

My name is Max and I am a Website Designer and IT Project Manager based in Devon. I work with an eclectic (and far flung) mix of fellow freelancers, all specialists in their trade and together with you, we can create your brand and take it to market. Since around 2011, all of my websites have been built on WordPress and this has helped streamline my operation.

I have travelled extensively throughout my life and this has always been a source of great inspiration, not to mention great clients. I have designed websites for clients in Bali, UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, Australia, Africa, Kuwait, New Zealand and of course here in the UK. I have made useful contacts with fellow freelancers in these countries too. It’s all about communication.

Featherkite and RuckinRugby are both Brands belonging to my company, John Maxwell Ltd.

I have been ‘communicating’ for a living my entire adult life. From my brief education as a commercial artist, through ten years in the British Army’s Royal Signals and beyond as a data communications specialist. I have studied communication from the physical science of voice transmission and the psychology behind non-verbal communication, all the way through to the engineering building blocks of the internet and the many applications that use it.

I love design and take full advantage of my lack of formal training which allows me to have my own perspective on things. Nobody has ever told me how to design and I have never had to work under a designer or mentor of any kind, I have always found my own way. As far as web design goes, this has always meant clean, uncluttered intuitive design, with which I am now strongly associated.

Why Featherkite?

WEB DESIGN • BRANDING • PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Since day one, I have strived to build relationships as I believe these are the cornerstones of good business. Relationships with partners and suppliers and above all, good relationships with the client are what my success has been built on. Be it a website build, a brand creation or a 3 month project to migrate a business to the cloud – my client’s business is as important to me as it is to my client, every time. My testimonials reflect this.

I pride myself on my customer service, attention to detail and going the extra mile in an age when all of these things seem to be less and less prevalent. Your success is my reward.

NEWS FROM THE STUDIO

Eve Copper’s coming out

Eve is a fantastically talented fashion designer and dressmaker who lives just down the road, well ... canal - from my office. I have seen her photography and shots of people modelling her clothes and so I was aware of the quality I'd be working with, so when she asked for a website it was a no-brainer.
