Website design prototyping
Decent web design starts with extensive research. I’ll develop that into a content map, then further into wireframes and however many full-fledged visual prototypes you need before starting work.
Online ecommerce websites
Over the last twenty years the growth of ecommerce has been steady and unstoppable. The last few years has seen the introduction of some fastic new tools for people who want to start selling online. Get your slice of the pie.
Content Management Systems
A CMS gives you full control over the contents of your website’s pages posts, files and documents and handy tools to update the design across the whole website.
Fully responsive websites
A good website is like liquid – it dynamically adjusts to fit any device it is loaded on. Our websites are built to look great on all devices.
Search engine optimised
I’ll bring my experience to bear on your website, building a site that search engines will start to rank with no hitches. This sets you up beautifully for future SEO work.
Web hosting and domains
After building your website I’d be happy to host it for you, serving it to visitors on snappy managed WordPress optimised hosting running LiteSpeed on SSD storage. We keep everything up to date for security, speed, content updates and peace of mind.
I can host your website too
When I build a website I know how it runs, so I’m the best person to keep it running smoothly. So after building your website I can offer extra website services like super fast and secure WordPress optimised web hosting.
You’ll get your own dashboard for full admin control. This naturally includes access to free SSL security certificates, email hosting and domain management.

What will you get as standard?
Just over half of all traffic on the web now comes from mobile devices. I design sites to be responsive so they’ll display beautifully on devices of any size.
With your WordPress website I’ll also set up the following as standard:
- Search engine optimisation tools
- Site caching and minification for super fast site loading. Your users will love you, as will search engines.
- Rock-solid website security. This is especially important for e-commerce sites. I can provide you SSL certificates for free with an additional hosting plan.
- Google Analytics to help you track where visitors come from and what they do on your site
- On-website spam protection
Are you looking to sell physical products, event tickets, downloads, subscriptions, or even to simply accept donations online? I can build online e-commerce shop functionality into the site. This includes stock management, product variations and a checkout that can calculate shipping and tax. If you sell downloadable products your website can make money for you in your sleep.
This can integrate with all major payment types (Visa, Mastercard etc) and various online accounting systems.
If you market to customers with email lists email marketing provider automation can be built in.
Special deals for small websites
What it says on the tin. This is for when you need a simple web presence and don’t want to have to pay for loads of bells and whistles you’ll never use.
