About

Gavin WrayI help organisations to present their information online so that it is clear, usable and effective. My work spans web content management, editing, writing, information architecture, design and content needs analysis, user interface design and front-end web design.

In doing this, I advocate what people want and expect from digital services, and follow the principles of user-centred design and established web standards. The result is meaningful web content that represents your organisation effectively and gives your audience a great online experience.
