design and website services from Anne Cotgreave

Starting my business in the early nineties, I concentrated on word processing and desktop publishing. But the World Wide Web was opening up exciting new possibilities and I quickly became fascinated by website design. 

After learning to create web pages by writing html code in Notepad I moved on to Dreamweaver, a sophisticated and rather daunting web design program. Eventually, having managed to make a couple of presentable practice websites, I embarked on my first public one, for a heritage railway society. It was well received, and things grew steadily from there.

At that time the idea of using my own name on the Internet made me nervous. By chance, while signing up online for an account with the old Netscape, 'skinnycat' popped up in the password automatically assigned. It sounded just right, so I've been Skinnycat Design ever since.

This website uses Joomla! content management system with a template from FavThemes that's been extensively customised.

The background images were created in Photoshop, derived  from a couple of original photos taken on my phone at the Blue Lake, an old slate quarry in Snowdonia.
