About The Studio

And the person behind it

Winking Frog Studios Ltd is a small, home based Web Design & Development company based in Lossiemouth, Moray. Fronted by Web Designer & Developer Gordon Naldrett, Winking Frog Studios offer a range of web services and products to businesses and companies throughout Moray, the Highlands and beyond. Utilising over 18 years experience in the web industry Gordon can offer your business a professional web presence be it a small single page site, brochure website or a fully blown e-commerce solution.

In 2014 Winking Frog Studios also began producing free and commercial themes and plugins for the popular WordPress platform.

How it all began

Back in 2008 Gordon started a small web shop called Moray Web Solutions. Based initially in Lossiemouth he soon moved to offices on the High Street in Elgin. Moray Web Solutions catered for web design clients of various types and sizes from the Highlands of Scotland down to the Home Counties in England. Unfortunately due to a combination of personal circumstances and the effect the recession was having on the Small Business community at the time, Moray Web Solutions was forced to close it’s doors in 2011.

Winking Frog Studios was a small part of Moray Web Solutions that was less geographically named and had a different goal than the main business. Initially the idea was to design and develop a number of online services and websites internally rather than external client work. The name was carried on, although since then the direction in which Gordon has taken the business is now closer aligned to the original concept for Moray Web Solutions, although far more controlled and focused.

The Studio today

Incorporated in February 2013, Winking Frog Studios are now a home based venture with a new and specific vision for the future. The revised vision is…

To provide a professional and friendly service to all clients, collaboratively produce high quality, responsively designed and developed websites that work fluidly on all devices, and to offer the highest standard of ongoing support and advice.

Putting the knowledge and experience gathered over the years Gordon has identified a select group of tools, resources, techniques and best practices to which all client websites are developed. This allows a huge amount of flexibility and customisation, whilst retaining the stability of known good and proven platforms. In addition, and quite unique amongst local competitors, all sites designed and developed by Winking Frog Studios are done so using responsive web design techniques, ensuring they look great, and behave well no matter what device, screen size or browser your visitors are using. This is essential in today’s smartphone and tablet intense lifestyle. Gordon is constantly keeping his knowledge of modern web design and development techniques up to date and strives to produce the most professional solution possible for each client, using tools such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and PHP.

Supporting Local Business

Although Winking Frog Studios are happy to work with clients anywhere in the World, Gordon has a passion for promoting local Moray based businesses. After all that was one of the main driving factors behind the creation of Moray Web Solutions all those years ago. Gordon is especially keen to work with clients in and around Lossiemouth, Elgin, Fochabers, Forres and Nairn. It is his belief that a very many exciting small businesses exist in Moray and the Highlands that could benefit greatly from an improved web presence, and would love to see that happen! If your looking for a professional web designer in Moray, look no further.
