Web Design & Mastery

The company was founded in 2004 with the support of The Prince's Trust.

In July 2004, its founder Flash Bristow was accepted into GAWDS - The Guild of Accessible Web Designers. All members have to demonstrate their commitment and ability to meet high standards of accessibility, so you can be confident in our websites.

We have partnered with other companies in order to expand the range of services offered; we can now offer logo design and PHP/database programming to add to our portfolio.



Flash Bristow, Founder and Proprietor

Flash Bristow (passport photo) Flash graduated with a BSc in Applied Computing in 1999, and from there began a career in IT, working as a system administrator for three years before taking a role as webmaster in a commercial environment - processing graphics and proofreading content, as well as back-end work to ensure the webservers were running smoothly. After this, she moved on to start Web Design & Mastery. More about her experience can be read on Flash's LinkedIn profile.

Her personal website was originally published on the internet in 1999, and has been revised several times to reach its current form at The Gorge.

Her hobbies and interests are many; she is active in her local community being both a Governor of her local school and a street co-ordinator for her Residents' Association. She enjoys writing articles (published by BBC Ouch! and The Oldie) and has been featured in various BBC radio and TV programmes.

She believes in personal development, and participates in at least one challenge every year. In 2004 she passed her driving test, and just nine months later passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists' advanced test. In 2005 she qualified as a Microsoft Certified Professional, and in 2006 she took time out to organise her wedding - a large project to manage! Since November 2006 she has been learning British Sign Language, and having passed Level 1 in July 2007 is now studying Level 2.

"I believe in giving excellent customer service and have many years' experience of providing technical support. I am ready to help with your queries and ensure you understand and are happy with your website, no matter what level of internet knowledge you have. There's no need for you to be a techie too!"

Note: Before marriage in October 2006, Flash's surname was Wilson - it is now Bristow, with Wilson becoming a middle name.

"We are really delighted with our new website. Flash was extremely fast, friendly and helpful all the way through the process and went to great lengths to get the website just as we wanted. As complete novices to the world of website design, we were grateful to have a person who made the task run so smoothly. Thank you very much!"

"Thank you so much for all your hard work on my behalf; you very quickly grasped the image I wanted to portray. I am really pleased with the website that was delivered earlier than I expected and on budget. Your extensive knowledge of websites and the legislation that affects them is impressive and led to a level of detail that I was not expecting. I literally could not have done it without you. It has been a real pleasure working with Web Design & Mastery."
