Why choose a local web designer?
If I haven’t convinced you yet, perhaps this might…
I’ve been doing this a long time
I’ve been designing websites since 2009, helping businesses do better marketing with their sites
I know the area
Because I live in Kent, I know the area well. I’ve lived in Maidstone, Medway, Folkstone and Ashford! So if you serve local people like I do, I’ll help you produce something that’s perfect for your target market.
I’m the designer you’ll work with, not some faceless person you will never meet. We can meet in person, I could come to your business and get to know you and your team well.
Focus on attention to detail
High-quality websites that are focused on the details matter a lot. I don’t scrimp or take shortcuts. If you want a cheap site, I’m not the guy for you.
Content writing is included
As well as a designer, I am a writer too. I can help you write the content for your website. A perfect marriage of great words and great design.
Secure and safe
All my websites use top notch security features to give you peace of mind that your site won’t get hacked!
How it works
My web design process
I’ve developed a smooth process that makes working with me clear, efficient and enjoyable.
The first step is the discovery session where I’ll learn more about you and talk through the strategy for your website. We could meet in person if you’d like to, or a Zoom call is fine.
Next is the content plan & website strategy. I’ll determine your sitemap and the pages you need. If we’re writing your content for you we’ll begin that too before we start designing.
I will then develop wireframes, which are blueprints that help us think about the kind of content on each page and the way it should be presented.
At last, design! Based on my strategy and wireframes, we will now create a home page mockup design to set the style of the site, this is usually the most fun part.
Once you’re happy with the design, we’ll develop the website and create the rest of the pages. We’ll create the mobile layouts and get everything working nicely.
Once the site has been produced, we’ll go through a process of testing, optimising and perfecting every detail before we’re happy to launch.
It’s launch time! We’ll set a suitable time and date for launching your new site. I’ll then do all the techy things needed to launch the site. I also carry out a bunch of post-live checks and optimisations too.
