A bit about me
Before becoming a web developer I studied philosophy and religion at the University of Kent. I then went on to try my hand at content writing and graphic design. It wasn't long, although it felt it before I found my true calling. The ultimate combination of left and right brain: designing and building websites! When I'm not at the computer I enjoy playing tennis, making veggie creations in the kitchen with my girlfriend and making digital art prints.
why work with me
I am passionate about designing beautiful and engaging websites. I combine this passion with a compulsive nerdy need to write great code. I've been doing freelance web development for just over a year now. As a relative newbie, I provide excellent value for money. I put the needs of your business first, which also invariably means the needs of your clients, and this results in a super user-friendly, SEO friendly and Google algorithm friendly website.
I am always transparent when setting out what work I will do and how much it will cost. I strive to provide the best advice I can and I never push for things that wouldn't be useful for your business. My preference is to work with friendly and good-willed companies and individuals.
What's the cost of a website?
This will vary greatly depending on what you need but generally a themed 5 page brochure style website will start at £700. Custom built websites start at about £1400. If you let me know what your ideal website would be I can get back to you with a quote.
Do you only use Wordpress?
Wordpress is what I have the most experience using and I think it is a superb option for almost all small to medium businesses. Craft is also an excellent option but unlike WordPress it isn't free. For smaller companies, or portfolio websites, I often use Squarespace as this provides a more cost-effective and simple to use product.
How long does a website take to build?
Typically a brochure website will take between 2 and 4 weeks, e-commerce sites can take a bit longer. I remain on hand for a month after the website is handed over to iron out any kinks.
