Semibold (AKA, freelance web designer, Todd Pitcher).
Unlike many Norfolk web designers, I don’t focus on making you the most pretty and attractive website possible. Nope, I focus on making a website that actually positively impacts your business.
I have an intense interest in design and sales psychology and ultimately understanding how and why people buy. This knowledge and experience influence even the most minute details in your website to ensure every part is tailored towards turning your website visitors into happy customers.
I’m proud to show off the work I’ve done for Norfolk businesses and organisation, as well as others across the UK. You can see my work here.
I’m lucky enough to work with a huge range of clients across Norfolk and the UK. From Chocolatiers in the Norwich Arcades to multinational property companies, I take pride in the websites I craft.
I know what I’m good at and consequently focus entirely on building and maintaining WordPress websites. But, if you need a great photographer, copywriter, videographer or other marketing support I have a fantastic network of other specialist freelancers we can work with.
If you’re ready to discuss your new website, let’s have a free, no obligation discovery call to see if I can help. Book a call here.
A portrait is much more than a photograph .. it is a there as an investment in your history, for posterity, an heirloom and a treasured memory.
Portraits capture the real you, a thousand stories can be seen in a great photograph. Each time you view your portrait you’ll relive a great memory.
Your portrait experience will be a laughter-filled day, centred around you and your needs. The session will be fun and natural, with no worries or hurries. The best shots can take a while, but with a sense of fun in a relaxed atmosphere, we’ll work together to capture your true nature and create a portrait telling your story.
I’m more than used to working with large families, tired babies and grumpy teens! I have years of making even the most camera-shy individuals shine; the day is yours and I will make sure you, your family members or friends all have a wonderful experience.
Pet Portraits are the perfect way to capture your favourite friend’s unique personality; guaranteed to make you smile each time you view your artwork.
The best shots come from patience, a healthy sense of humour and a relaxed atmosphere. I am more than used to tenacious terriers, reserved cats and even sleeping reptiles! (The only pet exception is spiders — sorry, I’m an absolute arachnophobe!)
Together, you and your pet will have a great experience, designed around your specifications. Whether you prefer highly stylised imagery, your pet in a natural surrounding or being caught playing mischievously in the studio, your pet’s portrait will capture the essence of the companion you know and love.
Equine portraits are the perfect way to bring out your horse’s expressive body language and personality. Your portrait in your home will ensure the strong bond between you both is unbroken — whether your horse is in livery or at the bottom of your garden. Your photography experience will be a wonderful moment to relive and enjoy each time you view the artwork which has encapsulated your horse’s nature.
Lisa North Photography … in words!
Photography is something I have always relished; there has been a camera in my bag since I can remember. To me, photography immortalises people and animals, a portrait can be held and loved for generations.
I have been fortunate to work as a professional photographer for over ten years, spending time capturing images in the studio as well as in beautiful country settings ranging from beloved grandparents, family portraits, favourite pets and new parents to create fine art for posterity.
Living in the rural community of Harleston lends itself to my art; I adore exploring the surrounding countryside and discovering beauty spots perfect for location shoots with animals and families. As an experienced horse and dog owner, I have also become specialised in equestrian and animal photography, which I certainly view more as a love than a job!

Sheringham’s Little Theatre is closely connected in so many ways. Established for six decades, it comes with that hard-earned reputation for being an essential component of the coastal community.
Standing proud opposite the Town’s Clock Tower, it faces due North towards the sea that has shaped Sheringham’s history. A force to be reckoned with, both its summer repertory season and its traditional pantomime are legendary in the British theatre industry, reflected by the audiences filling the 160 brand new seats and who are happy to just keep on coming back for more.
Showcasing Sheringham’s stage and screen, it connects with people across wide ranging tastes. Both the Little Theatre Players and numerous touring companies perform a superb selection of classic plays as well as the best of modern material.
The satellite dish and full-size silver screen present a much sought after connection with world class ballet and opera. Fans of mainstream movies are not forgotten and are well catered for alongside maestros of music from all genres.
The service called Friendly Faces features an informal link for new-comers and those who feel daunted at attending on their own; tangible proof of the Theatre’s credentials for wishing to connect with all who choose to come along.
Open six days every week, the Hub Café provides a warm and welcoming destination, an amazingly popular venue for everyone to catch up over a cuppa and cake. For those who yearn for a closer involvement, there is a fun and enjoyable adult drama group, plus drama workshops for 6 to 16 year olds. Why go anywhere else when you can come to your local Theatre and be on a proper stage?
Sheringham has the benefit of regular direct transport connections with local communities and with Norwich itself by both bus and rail services. The Little Theatre has several car parks in the vicinity which are a level walk away. Morris Street is the closest at only a few minutes’ wander and is free of charge in the evenings. Once inside the Theatre foyer, it is a level access to the café, toilets and front row of the auditorium – making the trip out easier for those with limited mobility.
All the numerous events need a happy team on hand to ensure they run smoothly. Volunteers play an essential part, helping with a variety of tasks, including welcoming visitors, selling programmes or serving in the café bar. Anyone who has a couple of hours to spare from time to time would be genuinely welcome to join the team. Your contribution would help ensure the sustainability of your well-connected Sheringham Little Theatre for you, your children and your grandchildren.
Dodo and Dinosaur is a small Norfolk-based design studio run by mother and daughter team Jill Michelle Smith and Jennifer Watson. Their exciting new book 'An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ is designed to inspire young readers’ curiosity in natural history through a collection of twenty-six weird and wonderful beasts.
Written in an accessible rhyming style and packed with fun and engaging facts, the book is designed for both supported and independent reading. Aimed at children of primary school age, the amusing verses and vibrant illustrations invite little explorers into a prehistoric world which is just waiting to be discovered.
“The children in our year group absolutely adored 'An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures'! The beautiful illustrations captured their imagination and they were intrigued to find out about many interesting creatures that they had not learnt about before in school. The unique names given to each creature, to correspond with the letter of the alphabet, was a lovely touch that got the children chatting about which animal their name matched with! Many of them were so enthused that they went home to do some extra research about some of the new creatures they had discovered, and were keen to share these with the rest of the class. It was a perfect core text for our 'Dinosaurs' unit and made a lovely change to the usual non-fiction books we use. I would highly recommend it!” Miss Herbert, Curriculum Lead and Assistant Head of School James Wolfe Primary with Centre for the Deaf, Greenwich
Combining Jennifer’s background in graphic design and experience working in the conservation and heritage sector, with artist and illustrator Jill’s unique style, the pair started the journey to bring these extraordinary extinct creatures to life. The species featured in the book include a few which children may already be familiar with, such as woolly mammoth and dodo, but most are more obscure, yet certainly no less interesting, making the book’s illustrations all the more fun to discover.
The idea behind ‘An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ came from both Jill and Jennifer’s love of art and nature. With a young son already fascinated by dinosaurs and all things prehistoric, Jennifer wanted to encourage young children to discover a new book about more unusual species, while helping to develop a true love of natural history. With this vision in mind, Jill was keen to create artwork that was both child-friendly and a reasonably accurate interpretation of the creatures’ natural forms.
Caring for our planet and its incredible species is at the heart of Dodo and Dinosaur’s ethos and researching these extinct creatures (some only extinct as a result of human interference), has emphasised the importance of sustainability. ‘An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ is printed on 100% sustainably sourced, carbon balanced paper in association with World Land Trust, helping to protect critically threatened rainforests.
In addition to their book, Jill and Jennifer have also been busy creating a beautiful new range of sustainable products for children, featuring their A-Z designs. Perfect for children’s bedrooms, playrooms and school bags, their range of Extraordinary Extinct© products are made from organic and eco-friendly materials.
