Custom website design &
Designing beautiful, creative and high-performing websites for growing businesses & creative entrepreneurs.
Your creativity, talent and experience is what makes you so valuable. It’s your brand and your creativity that make you and your products unique. This means that your website is one of the most important assets your business has. It’s your window to tell the world who you are and to showcase what you do so well.
Your website should focus on your brand and what makes you and what you create so valuable. It should be a marketing and selling engine crafted to nurture your brand to reach its fullest potential. And it needs to have quality support so you can be sure your website will continue working seamlessly for you.

Let me take care of your website so you can take care of business.
All projects start with a questionnaire followed by a conversation. I get to know you and your business requirements better so I deliver the best solution for your businesses. You'll get…
In this Discovery stage we talk about the projects requirements, what you want to achieve, your goals, your expectations and we establish who the end user will be. This is followed by choosing the right technology based on the project’s specifications and then a site map is designed. Then it’s wireframing.
In the Wireframing stage, I design the structure and navigation of the site, along with page layouts in simple block form focusing on user expectations and user experience. This is done for both desktop and mobile so that you are happy that your site will work well on mobile. It's then on to designing.
In the Designing stage I'll collect your content and organise how this will be inserted into your website's structure. I'll then design your website so that it looks and feels beautiful by adding design elements like the header, footer and navigation before moving on to the developing stage.
The Developing stage is all about the coding. This will involve installing and setting up your WordPress website on the live server along with installing any required plugins. Before I launch your website you will be sent a preview of the final design for your approval. Any changes will be implemented before the going live stage.
In the Going Live stage, I'll carry out all the necessary steps to ensure your website is error free. I'll then go though my final checklist to make sure nothing is missed off and everything is perfect. I'll also make sure your website is submitted to Google and will make sure your website is visible in the search engines. Then it's time for taking care.
The Taking Care stage is all about looking after your site with one of my Care Plans. For your website to thrive, updates and maintenance is essential. With one of my Care Plans I'll take care of all ongoing updates to your website so it continues to run smoothly. And if you need assistance with anything at any time, you can just contact support.
Websites I create are built specifically for you and your business and so the investment you make will be dependent on your individual project requirements.
As a small creative business owner myself, and being married to a business owner too, I understand the struggles that small businesses go through.
I have more than 20 years of experience and I won't just be a designer, I'll be a mentor, a partner, a friend. You pour your heart and soul into your business and I will do the same to your website.
I am always available to answer any of your questions.

Shopify is a click and go e-commerce solution that requires you to do all the design, setup and maintenance of your site yourself. I design and customise a bespoke website to reflect your brand and business, and I build it for you and your customers needs so you can concentrate on running your business. There are no restrictions or limitations with a WordPress website, other than what you choose to implement.
A typical (non-ecommerce ) website would require an investment starting from £1,950.
