I start every new project by getting to know you and your business. Understanding what it is that makes you shine is a key factor in helping you stand out in the digital ocean.
As well as getting to know your business, I also take a dive into your competitors. Understanding what they do, both good and bad, will help keep you on the front foot.

I work in a very open and collaborative way. Having you involved in every step of the process is vitally important for achieving the greatest outcome. I know all about websites, but only you know your business.
Putting your website live should never be the end of the journey. Creating long-lasting relationships is something I always strive for. A website should be ever-evolving, continuously developing and improving.

A percentage of all quotes go towards planting trees (at no extra cost).
Starting in January 2022, I’ve made the decision to start donating a small percentage (5%) of all new website quotes to charities helping to plant trees and create new woodlands. The day-to-day running of the equipment I need leaves behind a huge carbon footprint. The IT industry alone is responsible for around 4% of the entire planets electricity consumption, according to a 2018 study. Each new quote provided will include a section detailing where the donation will go, how many trees it will plant and how much carbon it will take out of the atmosphere.
Frequently Asked Questions
Web design FAQs
How much will a new website cost me?
This is (understandably) the most asked question when it comes to having a new website designed and/or built. The simple answer to this question is, how long is a piece of string? There are many different variables that could decide how much your new website will cost. The functionality, the time frame, do you need just a design? Development only? All of these factors contribute to the potential price of a website. For an accurate price, I encourage you to get in touch with me and let me help understand the needs of your new website.
How long does it take to design and build a new website?
This is another question that entirely depends on many different contributing factors. However, I do often provide general project times for my clients to help encourage us both to aim for a deadline. Most commonly I experience lead times of between 6 - 12 weeks, start to finish. This allows plenty of time for the design stage, development and testing. Depending on the circumstances, projects can take more or less than the aforementioned duration.
Why should I hire a freelancer to build my new website?
Often, I am asked the difference between hiring a Freelancer vs hiring an Agency to take on a web project. The biggest reason I can give is the cost. Freelancers often have very little overheads in comparison, the beauty of working for ourselves means we need very little to operate. Another big reason is communication. You will always have direct contact with the freelancer and only ever one point of contact. No being passed from person to person. This allows a personal relationship to be formed and often results in better working relationships. The byproduct of a good working relationship? A better end product.
Do I need to pay you to make changes to my new website?
The good news is, no! You don’t need to pay me for ongoing changes. I build all of my websites into Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Craft. This puts you in direct control of editing and managing your new websites content. Full training is provided to ensure you are fully set up for success. Some clients however, don’t have the time or willingness to learn how to manage their new website, so I do offer maintenance packages to look after your website for you.
