Tailored website design and development to suit your business needs.
Making the web work for you.
From concept to completion every project maintains a user centred approach. This ensures your website and target audience become aligned to then help establish the brand, deliver results and make the right first impression.
With users now expecting a seamless online experience it’s also important your website maintains a conscious balance between aesthetics, functionality, ranking factors and UX. All these elements help play their part and are often the difference between visitors being able to find your business, make a purchase or enquiry and not. Search engines give precedence to websites which are fast loading, structured correctly and are responsive and mobile-friendly. To help ensure your website is given the optimum chance of being found via an organic search, all builds adhere to industry standards and best practices and are hand coded from a mobile-first approach to maintain a lean code base. Whilst page builders, pre-built themes and drag and drop tools can be found within the marketplace, these often cause codebase 'bloat' meaning it can then be detrimental to your websites performance. Free tools such as PageSpeed Insights from Google is a valuable tool for checking the health of any website.

Good to know.
If you have a query regarding your website project that's not addressed below, please get in touch.
How long does a project typically take?
Because each website has its own individual requirements, timescales can differ per project however a general build time normally falls between four and six weeks. Sometimes this may be less however I always provide estimated timelines with all quotes.
How much does a website cost?
Costs can vary depending on the brief. A simple brochure style website will for example be more cost effective than a full eCommerce build. My pricing is clear, fair and transparent so should you wish for a more accurate quote please feel free to contact me.
Why do you hand code websites rather than use templates?
A website that is hand coded has a leaner codebase and cleaner structure when compared with pre-built templates or drag and drop builders. This helps your site load quicker, be more favourable with search engines and instantly engage with your users.
Do you offer hosting and email?
From experience I’ve found it better to be transparent and instead steer clients towards a trusted and reliable supplier. I can still help with the setup including installation and emails via cPanel. Because of this, costs are kept lower without any additional markup being added.
Do you only offer Wordpress as a CMS?
No. Whilst the majority of websites are powered by Wordpress, when projects require more tailored modules I am able to provide a bespoke content management system that is user intuitive and can adapt and meet the needs of any business.
Will I own the website and code once finished?
Yes. Once completed you will own all aspects of the build including design, source code and content management system. I do reserve the right to add a small credit in the footer of every website to help generate new leads.
