Professional web design at affordable prices
As a Freelance Designer I work with a number of companies in Swansea & South Wales (all over the UK & further afield) designing, building, developing & maintaining websites. I also help companies to promote themselves – assisting with SEO, digital / email marketing & providing social media graphics.
Every web design project is different, whether you need a simple business website, an interactive blog or a large on-line shop. I aim to create websites that are user friendly, technically sound, mobile friendly / responsive and attractive – yet easily managed by the client.
I always provide my clients with the necessary training & support to make the most of their website – updating content, adding images, embedding videos, creating blogs, using social media – because if your website is successful it reflects well on me!

Responsive Web Design
It goes without saying that all of my web design projects will take this into account, and will be tested using various devices & screen sizes to iron out any problems.
CMS (Content Management Systems) Web Design
Many clients need to manage their own websites. CMS websites offer a user-friendly way for non-technical people to log-in & easily update their content. The most popular CMS software is WordPress – followed by Drupal, Joomla & Concrete5. READ MORE ►
E Commerce Web Design
Selling products online is fairly easy these days, but an on-line shop can have potential SEO faults if you don’t do it properly. It’s also important to categorise your products carefully & allow your visitors to easily find exactly what they are looking for. READ MORE ►
SEO & Digital Marketing
When building a website, SEO should be considered from the very start – all of my websites are built with SEO in mind. I also provide the tools for social media sharing / blogging etc. Success ultimately comes down to the strength of competitors, but I give my clients the best chance to compete. READ MORE ►
How I work…
WHERE DO WE START?
It all starts with a design brief. All I need to start the web design is a bit of information about your business & what functionality you want from the website.
Where possible, I produce a fully working website before asking for any money, this avoids any disputes or dissatisfaction. I will always explain the best options for every client – if you want to have complete control over your domain & hosting, I can recommend tried & tested hosting companies. Or if you want me to manage your website, I can host the website myself, oversee updates, monitor / report SEO techniques & ensure your website stays online.
After producing a website, I always give my clients free ongoing support (if needed). I also give clients all the information they need to promote their website & improve their SEO – using social media, blogging, copy-writing etc. – because if my clients websites are successful, it is a great advert for myself.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
Every project is different. A simple brochure website can be set up in a day or two, a large online shop can take several weeks. So I can’t put a price on it until I know exactly what you need.
If you are a newcomer to owning a website, you may be a little unsure about the costs involved. Basically, all you need are a domain name & a hosting package – which you can pick up very cheaply these days. If you’re not sure which one is best for you, I’m happy to explain all the jargon like bandwidth, databases, web space, email accounts etc.
Once you have a hosting package & domain name in place, you can then build a nice website to go there. That’s where I come in!
