My first priority is Search Engine Optimisation. I work with clients to fine-tune their website content, to concisely describe what their services or products are.



Website Speed

Search Engines look at the page speed of your website, as well as your website visitors. I try to keep my websites clean & minimal, taking away unnecessary bells and whistles.



Web Security

Most websites are under constant attack by people probing for weaknesses. I set up strong security systems that blocks suspicious activity, not compromising speed.



Mobile Friendly

All of my websites will be tested on various devices to iron out any issues. Responsive web design is clearly important, but some techniques work better than others.



E Commerce

Selling online can be simple, but a large e-commerce shop needs to be managed carefully to ensure good SEO. I manage several shops & ensure all content is correct.



CMS / WordPress

Most clients require a WordPress web design. I provide custom WordPress themes and provide my clients with the training & support they need to manage their websites.

For every web design project, I set up each website with a good SEO plan. Depending on the type of business and your competition, I keep working on your website SEO to ensure you are well positioned on search engines.

It can often take a couple of months to achieve a good position, if the competition is strong, so it’s important to start off with the correct plan and stick to the plan. For most locally based companies it is fairly straight forward to achieve a good position on Google. I take the time to concisely describe your products or services to ensure you are ranking highly.



Digital Marketing

I manage the social media & Google Ads accounts for a number of companies, overseeing the paid campaigns to ensure they are effective. Different platforms will be more effective for certain products or services, depending upon the goal.

If the product or service is quite high end, or if it is a very new product, a simple Facebook / Instagram awareness campaign may be more effective than a Google Ads campaign, as many people may not be aware of the product. But if the product / service is widely know of, a Google Ads campaign may be far more effective and cheaper.





Website Speed

Another important factor in a successful website is to be fast loading. To achieve a quick loading website involves using good, clean code, using plug-ins sparingly, and using the correct graphic types at the correct sizes at all times.

I often have customers who want a really fancy website with all the bells & whistles, but I try to illustrate to them why an ultra fast website will get them more customers, and you can create an impressive website without any bells and whistles, using good design.




Web Security

Most CMS websites, such as WordPress, are constantly under attack by people or bots trying to gain access to the website. I build websites starting off with good security & advise my clients on how to keep themselves secure.

There are a number of free security plug-ins out there for WordPress, I use some of these systems when required, and can adjust the amount of security features for each website, if there are reasons to allow more flexibility for visitors. I also recommend the best hosting for each web design project, depending on the functionality, expected size & traffic for each website.




Mobile Friendly

Most modern websites will be fully responsive, but there are a number of web design techniques that can improve the layout of a website when viewed on mobile. Presenting your content in the most effective way is essential, and makes a huge difference to visitor interaction.

All of my web design projects are tested thoroughly on various devices & browsers. I am confident that my websites will be fully responsive, adjusting any layouts & graphics to effectively fit the user’s screen.




E Commerce

I manage a number of e-commerce websites, ensuring the sales are consistent. The complexity of an e-commerce web design depends upon the number of products and categories of products you have. The larger the number of products you have, the more careful you need to be with the structure, to ensure good SEO.

Along with the website content, well written product descriptions, SEO structure, website speed – all will effect the performance of your shop, determining how many sales you get. Even the size of your product images can make a difference to page speed and SEO, so it’s important to use the best practices at all times.





CMS / WordPress Web Design

The majority of websites that I build today are WordPress, a Content Management System (CMS), meaning you can log-in and easily update your content – but installing the theme & setting everything up properly can get a bit more technical. I design, build and manage high quality WordPress websites / themes, and ensure that any functionality that you need from your website is done properly.

I have built websites using pure HTML, PHP & CSS, Drupal, Squarespace, Wix, Shopify – amongst other platforms – but I would always recommend WordPress (open source software) as I find it to be the most flexible & professional platform with any functionality possible.



Ongoing Support

After launching a website it can take 4 to 8 weeks to achieve a good position on search engines. I launch 2 or 3 websites each month and take responsibility for ensuring that each website works for the client. This involves monitoring the rankings of each website over time.

For each client I also provide training to update their own website content, advising them on the best way to generate quality content. In most cases I will implement a Blog, so the client can easily generate high quality, topical content to improve their own rankings.

I have over 10 years experience as a freelancer, and a wealth of industry experience across all design fields. I work with numerous companies throughout the UK providing a full range of digital & print marketing material, building & managing all types of websites.











How I work

I charge a one-off fee for my web design projects, in most cases I can create a test website on my own servers so you can see exactly what you are getting before making any commitments. I recommend that you purchase your own hosting and domain, so you keep total ownership of your website in the future.


With industry experience using various design disciplines, I look at the big picture to ensure your website & graphical content fits all purposes. This experience allows me to provide solutions to any technical requests, whatever functionality the business website requires, I can implement it effectively and efficiently.

Cost Effective

By investing in a professional web design, and keeping the future website running costs as low as possible, in the long run this is guaranteed to be the most cost effective way to run a professional website.

Future Support

After completing a web design project, for most customers I continue to work with them as a freelance designer, to make updates to the website in the future & monitor SEO progress. Whether major changes are needed, or simple quick updates, I charge a reasonable hourly rate – or for very quick fixes or advice, I do not charge at all.
