We are delivering a Web Design masterclass for members of the Creative Quarter's Big House programme. This event is free but you must be enroled with The Big House. Space is limited. Make sure to book your ticket today to guarantee your place.

The session will give you the opportunity to find out what guidelines you should follow when designing a new website or updating the existing one for your organisation. You’ll learn how to ensure that your website delivers a seamless user experience, and is fast, secure and meets the highest technical standards. By the end of the session you’ll know how to make the most of the traffic to your website by creating seamless user journeys that drive action.

Julio Taylor, Creative Director at digital marketing agency Hallam, will discuss the principles of putting your customer at the centre of your design project:

  • How to design customer-centric websites
  • Why user experience matters
  • The impact of the connected consumer on web design

Julio started designing and building websites in the late 90s, hacking together Geocities websites, frames and table layouts. After studying Computer Science, he worked as a software developer in the oil industry and public sector, before coming back to digital and web in 2009. Along with Jon Martin, he founded BigSpring, which grew into a highly regarded web agency with a reputation for delivering quality digital experiences.

Following the merger of BigSpring and Hallam in 2017, Julio works as Hallam’s Creative Director, providing strategic leadership across the design and development teams to deliver outstanding digital products. Julio specialises in User Experience (UX), design and strategy.


A series of four breakfast workshops aimed at post year one start-ups; sole traders, partnerships and limited companies who are looking to grow their business.
