I create all types of websites for all types of clients.
I specialise in WordPress web design. WordPress is used by millions of websites around the world, with the flexibility to create a bespoke look for your business.
WordPress provides a full content management system that controls all aspects of website content. I am very happy to help my clients learn WordPress to manage their own website changes.
WordPress is easy to extend with functionality like:
Mobile Friendly Website Design
My clients want their website to look good whatever device their website visitors are using, whether it be on their laptop, tablet, or mobile. All my websites are mobile device friendly.
The growth in the number of people using either their mobile phone or tablet to access the internet now means that many people's first experience of a company will be on these devices.
I offer the following options to my clients:
Responsive Web Design
This is exactly the same content offered to visitors whether they access the website on a mobile, tablet, or laptop. However, the design is responsive, automatically changing in size and appearance to make the website easy to read on different screen sizes.
For some businesses, it is appropriate to create a bespoke mobile version of a website. The mobile website can have different content to the main website, typically concentrating on key tasks, content, and products.

Website address configuration
Bespoke web design
Self service content management

Web Design FAQ
Here are a number of questions clients often have when thinking about their websites. Please contact me to discuss your specific requirements.
The earlier in the process the better. For many businesses, online marketing is an important part of the marketing plan. An early discussion can help define your marketing plan, choose a logo and website address, and create a consistent look and feel for all your marketing collateral. I can also help by providing ballpark costs for your budgetary planning.
Probably. Unless your idea is unique, it is likely that I have already implemented a similar solution for another client. I specialise in using low cost technology that already exists, and configuring it to work on your website. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Yes. There are many self build website tools on the web. Based on experienced from talking to my clients who have attempted this, you may like to check whether you can answer yes to these questions before pursuing this route:
Do you have the time to learn a new skill?
Are you prepared to compromise on the quality of design versus your competitors?
Do you have a good camera, photo editing software, and knowledge of how to prepare photos for the web?
Do you know how to resolve technical problems when they occur?
Do you know how to optimise your website to be found by search engines?
Do you know how to optimise your website for Google Adwords advertising campaigns?
Yes, but it is often quicker and cheaper for my clients for me to create their website on their behalf, although this depends on the starting level of knowledge of the individual. If you would enjoy learning web design, I am very happy to teach you.
All my websites are provided with a content management system through WordPress, saving time and money for my clients when their website needs updating. I also provide coaching on a wide range of other digital skills - please see my training page for more information.
Yes. For many clients, I recommend they purchase their website address with their own account. A website address is an important asset for a company to own and control. I can help by advising the best website address to buy, whether to buy more addresses, and to configure the address to work with your website and email system.
It depends. Not all web hosting packages offer the same service levels or technology. I advise my clients the advantages and disadvantages of using web hosting they have already purchased. Many of my clients choose to host their website using my preferred supplier.
I also offer annual service plans that keep the technology behind your website current. In the event of a technical problem, or a virus or hack on your website, the availability of website back ups will enable fast recovery.
It depends. If the website has been built using WordPress then the answer is probably yes. However, sometimes websites are simply too old or built on out of date technology, and it is better, quicker, and cheaper to start over. Please see my website build packages for more information.
Yes. I can help by describing the different kinds of email service available, from free email accounts to those that are easy to scale with the growth of a business. If you would like my help setting the accounts up, I charge my usual hourly rate.
