My background is in architecture. My website designs I see as a form of architecture. Space and the nature of space.
Attempting to create something that is beneficial to my clients, and which has an aura of being special and which works in a thoughtfully pleasing way. Containing design considerations that may not be immediately apparent but which when discovered add to enjoyment.
During the 90's I was the proprietor of the Alastair Gill Gallery at 4 Christmas Steps, Bristol BS1 5BS where I curated numerous ambitious group and solo exhibitions focussing on promoting excellence in the fields of contemporary furniture, textiles, jewellery and fine bookbinding. It created awareness of and access to contemporary designer - makers, often through the commissioning process.
Until recently I designed and made jewellery alongside my other activities - www.FineRingsAndThings.co.uk
Based in Bristol, I usually travel to have an initial meeting with the client, helping me to understand more fully what it is that is required of the client's website and how best to achieve that.
