About Sue Thomason

After 20+ years working on national women’s mags, including eight years at Woman and eight years at NOW, I got into building websites. I really enjoy it. I studied design way before I moved into journalism, so it made sense to do a front-end web development course. Then I thought: “Why not design websites for journalists?!”

Karyn wanted a photographic website that looks stylish and professional. I think I delivered that for her. See what you think – click the button below.

I enjoyed doing this bespoke site for Carolyn Boyd. The interactive map of France was a great idea, even though I say so myself!

I love this site that I did for Hannah Smith. The animated desktop elements make it unique and memorable. It’s bringing Hannah lots of work, too.

I designed and built a website and bookshop for best-selling writer and TV presenter, Charlie Connelly.

I used Lorelei’s own picture for the main header image on this site, then chose the rest of the imagery to complement it.

This is a colourful website that really catches the eye. One of my best so far. And Debbi was truly lovely to work with.

This is one of my favourite websites, for Anna Turns: environmental journalist. Anna’s great photography made designing this site a pleasure.

Jo Faragher is a journalist specialising in HR and business. I created a website that showcases her work and her skills.

I designed and built a website for consumer affairs journalist and journalism lecturer Dr Lily Canter. The site showcases Lily’s consumer articles and her academic work.

This website was created for journalist Katie Osborne who has her own PR company. Katie wanted a more corporate look to her site using her already established brand’s colour scheme.

What journalists say about my work:

I've had lots of editors approaching me lately with commissions and many have seen my work on the site so it's obviously working well!

Hannah Smith, Journalist.

"Thanks to Sue Thomason for putting together my portfolio website - it's clean and well designed, and she was really easy to work with. I heartily recommend her services!"

Jo Faragher, Journalist.

“My snazzy new website looks great and is absolutely brilliant! Thanks a million!”

Charlie Connelly, writer and TV presenter

“A good friend of mine who I regard really highly in the industry says: 'This is by far and away one of the best websites I have seen, ever! Not only does it look beautiful, it flows fabulously, reads well and really does you justice.'”

Anna Turns – environmental journalist.

I Just want to say a big THANK YOU to Sue Thomason who built my new portfolio website - it was a bit of a complicated one as I wanted to have a section for readers to use my cuttings to research their holidays in France, and she came up with this brilliant map that you can click through to find stories on the different regions. I couldn't have done it without her hard work and creativity. All hail Sue!

Carolyn Boyd. Journalist
