First impressions count
From start to finish, I personally design every pixel of your website, making it 100% bespoke and as memorable as possible for your visitors.
Your website is your shop window, and often a customer's first experience of your business. I understand how important it is to your business for your website to stand out among the competition, look great and offer an easy and enjoyable user experience from the very first glance.
Before I begin, I gather as much information as I can about your business and your expectations, and with this I tailor your website's design to suit both you and your desired audience. I research user interface and experience to a high level of detail, making sure your customers can easily interact with your website, and subsequently with your business.
Understanding your requirements is always job number one, so together we can plan the perfect website for you.
I use modern technologies to ensure that your website's performance is brilliant
I pride myself on building well planned, scalable and maintainable websites, high in technical quality. Using web optimised images, effective compression techniques and recommended practice I ensure your website is fast loading, giving your business a great head start to online success.
I offer hosting packages for all websites I build, and my competitive rates can be billed monthly or annually.
If you require a content management system (CMS) for your website, I offer two packages: self-managed and developer-managed. For a monthly fee I will manage your website's content, from making sure your text and images are up to date to inputting blog articles and news stories at your request. If you choose to manage your site's content yourself, I offer training to enable you to do this effectively.
Unique mailboxes: If you have a domain name you may also have custom email addresses (eg: firstname.lastname@example.org). Not only does this add consistency and professionalism to your website, it lends legitimacy to your business communications, making sure they land safely in your customer's inbox.
Website copy: If you require your site to be populated, I can provide clear, concise and SEO-friendly web copy from a versatile and experienced copywriter. This can include everything from basic web text to blogs, focus features and news articles.
Testing: I thoroughly test all websites using modern techniques to ensure your websites works well across multiple browsers and devices.
Responsive design: Because many, if not most, of your visitors are using mobile devices, it is vital that your website performs on all screens. Every website I create is responsive across multiple devices as standard.
Clean code: I code from scratch to ensure your website is clean, neat, completely bespoke and not bloated with anything superfluous.
