Bring Your Business Online

The web isn’t easy to navigate. It's a jungle out there!
There's so much to consider when you build a website.

How much will it cost? What should you include?
How can you make sure it's accessible? What is SEO? How can you adjust it?

I offer a fully comprehensive package that works with you to meet your business needs. Don't settle for that big agency; think about finding a designer that knows your business as well as you.

That way, you can avoid investing in designs that have already been sold a hundred times. You would blend into the background, and your potential clients won't remember that site that looks like all the others in their online search.

You'll be surprised at how easy it is to choose an independent freelance designer, get a custom-built website, and how fast and efficient it can be!

I know that your time is valuable, and I have the skills and experience to take care of most design decisions for you, we review at pivotal points and move forward, providing you with a streamlined and efficient experience.

Website Features

Modern, beautiful websites
that work for you

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so they say.

Maybe that's why some people can't agree on the best way to make a website. Some designers go for simplicity and focus on the content, others want a site that's fun and playful or one that looks just like the one their favourite brand uses.

There's no right and wrong answer though, and the best solution is the one that's going to work for you. I believe that a well-designed website is one that is not only good to look at but is also easy to use, is built to load quickly, and is easily accessible and fully functional.

These web design basics are often neglected, particularly on business websites. I still see hundreds of weak websites being made every day, either by clients themselves or by some web designers who don't care about content and functionality.

To build a good website, you must follow a well-balanced mix of these elements, whose relative proportions will depend on your business, your sector and your clients.

Websites don't need to be overwhelming

Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need for my website?

You can use your website as a powerful tool for marketing your business or organisation. Whether your site is a simple blog or a full-fledged e-commerce site, it's essential to make sure you collect all the right information before you put it online. What would you like your visitors to know about you, your products, and your services? Before designing, you'll need to have at least some of these pieces of information:

Your Website Copy
This is all of the text that is displayed on your website. It's vital to get it right because it can help with the ranking of your website. It should also read well and provide value to the reader.

Your Logo and Brand Guidelines
I'll take your company's logo and brand into consideration when designing your website so that it can be closely matched to your brand. Alongside that, I employ colour psychology to represent your company.

Your Images
Images of your business, your vehicles, you and your staff, any products you may sell, any work you have done, before and after shots. The specific requirements vary depending on the business because some may not be appropriate to your situation.

Your Social Proof
Do you have some good online reviews on Google, Facebook or elsewhere? We can use them to demonstrate how fantastic you are and convince potential clients you're the best!  

A Domain Name
Think like www.mybusinessname.com or www.mybiz.com. It's best to keep it simple, easy to remember, and easy to communicate. Avoid unnecessary characters, and keep it short! Also, you can choose from hundreds of different domain extensions, for example, .com, .co.uk, .red,. me, using them can help you find a shorter and more meaningful domain!

A Call To Action
What do you want visitors to do when they visit your website? We use the call to action to direct them towards the intended action, that is often a contact form, a direct button to call you, or a simple email collection field.

How does your web design process work?

A Quick Chat
First, we have a chat! We talk about what you'd like the website to do and what you need me to do, such as create content for the website. Once finalised I'll document this in an email and share the discussed scope we've agreed upon.

Discovery
Now we are exploring what you envision for your new website. We will examine websites that inspire you, learn how we can improve on these, and plan to integrate parts of these into your design.

Copy Sign Off & Mock-Ups
If I'm creating website copy I will email the plain text across to you for review, all my copy is written with SEO in mind which will help your website rank better on search engines. Once the copy has been approved, and any content sent I'll create a mock-up of your website, depending upon the size of the project the media of this mock-up can vary.  

A Quick Chat & Revisions
We'll talk over the phone to make sure everything is okay and make any necessary adjustments.

Sign Off
We'll reconvene one last time and then it will be time for us to go live and make any final tweaks, exciting times!  Please note that on larger projects, these aspects are covered in greater detail.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of optimising your website and your online presence to increase your website’s ranking on search engines. There are many ways to improve your website, and it takes a lot of devoted effort, dedication, and time to achieve higher rankings for different keywords.

What's a freelance web designer?

Many web design agencies promise you the world but deliver something that doesn’t quite meet your needs. You will find it hard to get in touch with an agency designer, your questions will be answered with stock answers, and it will take you too long to get what you paid for.

As a freelance web designer, I am here to help you every step of the way. I will listen to your needs and desires and work with you until you are satisfied with your new site. I am here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Freelance web designers work for themselves; we have complete control over our design practices, no amateurs are lurking on your site producing amateur designs for premium prices.
