Andy Tough…

Reliable, understandable Mac support for your company or yourself.

Website design, development and construction.

Technical Support

I have been providing technical support to people who use Apple Macs since 1987.

I help people to understand the technology in their lives so that it becomes a useful tool rather than an intimidating burden.

Before offering any advice I ensure that I fully understand what my clients would like to achieve.

My services have ranged from setting up the network infrastructure, servers, workstations and telephone systems for an international publishing company with sixty employees, to replacing the hard drive in a ten year old Mac Pro for a freelance illustrator.

If you think there is something I could help you with please get in touch.

Website Design

I have been designing and building websites for the last eleven years. I do this with Cathy Brear. Cathy is an illustrator and graphic designer who has worked for Dorling Kindersley, Quadrille and Tigerprint amongst others. The sight of website ‘code’ makes Cathy feel sick. So Cathy tells me how to make the sites look beautiful and I go off to write the code in another room.

People can find setting up a website both exciting and daunting. I will guide you through the process so that you learn as much as you wish to about the technicalities of website ownership. I ensure that you are able to update your own website content if that is what you would like to do.

Graphic Design

Cathy and also I work together on print based projects. In an increasingly digital age we find this rather refreshing. Cathy does the design. I do the production.

My Clients

My current clients range from individuals like the author RS Pateman to international publishing companies like Ryland Peters and Small and academic institutions like the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I love to work with people who are passionate about what they do.
