Farmer Phil's Music Festival

Farmer Phil’s Music Festival chooses CWDmedia for website revamp

I’m delighted to announce that CWDmedia has been engaged to redesign the website of a popular music festival in Shropshire.

Farmer Phil’s Music Festival, held in Ratlinghope near Shrewsbury, is now in its 17th year and each year plays host to an eclectic mix of acts from jazz and folk to rock and everything in between.  This year’s event (14-16 August) sees the legendary R&B quartet Dr Feelgood headline on the Friday night, with many more artists yet to be announced.

We’ve been a fan of CWDmedia’s work for a while and when the opportunity presented itself to revamp our website getting in touch with Steve was the obvious choice,” said Farmer Phil (real name Philip Harding), “The Festival welcomes around 2,000 fans every year and the new website will provide them with the very latest news regarding line-ups, ticket information and much much more.”

The new website will appear over at once complete.


Merry Christmas one and all!

Now the festive season is well underway I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, not to mention a prosperous and happy New Year.

I’ve made a habit over the past few years of sending CWDmedia-branded Christmas cards to each of my clients. This year, however, I’ve elected to make a donation to a charity that is dear to me instead – the Depression Alliance.

The Depression Alliance brings people together to end the loneliness and isolation of depression. They also campaign to end the stigma of depression and to raise awareness of what it means to live with it. For some, Christmas can be a very lonely time of year and as somebody who has suffered with depression in the past, I’m glad to help in some small way.

If you’re interested, you can read more about the Depression Alliance here.

Have a fantastic Christmas and I look forward to catching up with you in 2015!

Welcome to the new look CWDmedia

As the saying goes, “New Year, New You”.  Well, in addition to mentally committing to get fitter, eat cleaner and rid myself of my bad habits, I thought I’d give the CWDmedia site something of a makeover ahead of what I hope will be a busy year on the freelancing front.

Besides the facelift, you probably won’t notice an awful lot different with CWDmedia save for the introduction of a blog, in which I intend to provide straightforward and practical advice, ideas and tips on all things graphic design, photography, copywriting and marketing.  There’s already a few posts – feel free to browse and, if you’ve something positive to add to any, leave a comment!
