About Me

In a nutshell I’m an enthusiastic, creative problem-solver with a can-do attitude.

My goal is to devise creative solutions across various platforms to create innovative, socially aware content; with a focus on community, not for profit and arts clients.

I have an aptitude for understanding my clients’ vision and ensuring that their vision is realised. I pride myself on my aesthetic consistency, my attention to detail, and my ability to adapt to new technologies.

It all looks wonderful. Marcus and I are totally in love with the ‘M’ – in a big way – we talked about it like it was our first born child for about 20 minutes without drawing breath! … The menu, looks AWESOME. It is simple. Clean. Classy. Amazing… THANK YOU GRACE PURTON-LONG, you are a human wonder.

Grace was able to create an extremely user-friendly and mobile-ready interface … Grace was really able to get the right kind of retro aesthetic to fit the era. We were so pleased with the final result, Grace’s thoughtful and attractive design definitely elevated the whole project … On top of this, Grace is friendly and a pleasure to work with … with Grace’s vision, ability to guide the process and solve problems, we were able to make the project a reality. The end result was better than anything I could have imagined when we started the project and I have received a lot of good feedback from people using the site.

… We had a fairly strong idea of the type of website we wanted and Grace successfully turned this into a reality. It has a user friendly content management system so we can easily update our projects and blog. Overall we were very happy with the process and finished website. We would happily recommend Open Door Creative to any small business.

Building a website for our first year event we were looking for a company who could deliver on a deadline while producing something that was simple to navigate but still able to function on our needs. Grace was extremely personal in her approach to build the Ales On The Ovens website and very accommodating with changes along the way. The website gave a feel that matched our festival and something to build on in the future.

Grace Purton-Long of Open Door Creative was always promptly, and courteously came up with solutions to our requirements for our website design. Grace took the time to understand our requirements and has subsequently assisted us in the execution of the day to day running of the site by providing easy to understand directions our staff can use to maintain the site … We would recommend Grace and her company for anybody who wants to either start from scratch or rebuild a web design.
