Issues found: 

Copyright issue with header image and quote on home page

Don’t need email on contact

I removed this in favour of a contact box.

More CTA buttons for clients

I agree with this and will put more button images (with links to contact page) above the line on all pages to make it as easy as possible to contact me.
