I weave, therefore I am.

We all have our faults. I’m a Weaverholic. My one redeeming feature is I’m now one of the world's leading RapidWeaver designers and am trusted by many international clients, large and small, to help them compete professionally online. Size doesn't matter — if you have a budget then I can help.

“If you're in need of help for a RapidWeaver project, I can wholeheartedly recommend Marten!”

"Marten is a great example of the benefits of the internet and tools like Skype bringing the world together. Given that I'm in Southeastern Virginia and Marten is in Scotland, what was once never a possibility actually occurred for me when I hired Marten to support our web redevelopment efforts. What I found was a person who is not only an expert in RapidWeaver and web development, but also someone who is genuinely concerned about doing work that is a cut above the rest. His knowledge and capability is impressive, and I have truly enjoyed working with him. I also enjoyed our side conversations and I'm happy to say that I now have a new friend in Scotland."

“Marten is our go-to guy and we highly recommend him for anyone looking for guidance in anything and everything RapidWeaver.”

"Marten is an encyclopaedia of knowledge and creativity when it comes to RapidWeaver. He has provided us with invaluable assistance on all aspects of our projects from theme and page type selection, graphic design, web form, eCommerce implementation, and about everything else you can imagine. What makes Marten especially valuable is that he is ahead of all of the latest tools and ideas that can be used inside RapidWeaver. He is also a great teacher. One of the main reasons I wanted to learn Rapidweaver was that I was frustrated by two things: the costs and time of implementation of web related ideas. Marten solved both. His rates are very reasonable and the value for the dollar is outstanding. It is nice to actually get more than what you paid for. Our project turnaround times have been fast beyond our expectations. He is a busy guy, but when he tells you when it will be done, it is done. Marten is our go-to guy and we highly recommend him for anyone looking for guidance in anything and everything RapidWeaver."

“I can honestly say this is the most well spent money of my life so far.”

“Having a mentor when starting a project allows one to reach higher from the start, it eliminates the need to stay safely within the confines of methods already mastered. I struggled along in solitary seclusion for ages wishing like mad that I had a Master RapidWeaver friend next door. Thanks to Marten and Skype I now have exactly that! It is invaluable to get a truthful opinion, Marten is not afraid to tell you politely but firmly that your much loved project is a mess.

A clear vision means clear measurable goals, direction and purpose. Sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees. My experience and objectivity ensures your online brand is consistent with your message, value proposition and positioning, while my clarity of focus means your site will have a solid foundation, structure, and intuitive navigation, alongside a content strategy that couples a clear understanding of target markets with effective calls-to-action.

"Marten is unique in that he brings to Web design a novelist's sensitivity to language as well as considerable business acumen. Working with Marten is like working with a visual artist, copywriting coach, and business advisor all wrapped up in one. At the same time, his warm personality makes the complicated task of bringing a website to life a lot of fun. Even though he's halfway around the world from my office, Marten has become a valuable member of my company team."
