How Can I Help?

I am currently available for hire as a freelance web designer and developer.

In a nutshell, I can design and build you a great looking, responsive, mobile and search engine friendly WordPress website, built to the latest web standards and tested in all modern browsers.

I can also help you if you are looking for a Shopify developer to make changes to your online store.

Why Hire Me?

If you need an affordable website, but still want a bespoke design.

I have 5 years commercial experience as a web designer and developer, first with a HR software consultancy, and then one of Shrewsbury’s top digital marketing agencies.

At both, I designed and built websites and web apps for local businesses and international brands alike. I wrote my first piece of HTML in 2003 and have worked on hundreds of projects over the years. I design and build websites that are:

Responsive

In this day and age this should go without saying, but of course your website will display correctly on all phones and tablets.

Fast

Nobody likes waiting. A slow website is bad for business—many users will lose confidence after just a few seconds. I ensure your website loads quickly and feels snappy.

Easy to maintain

The Advanced Custom Fields plugin for WordPress gives me the freedom to create custom content layouts that are easy for you to update.

Accessible

I build websites with clear, readable text, and semantic, screen reader and search engine friendly markup (e.g. correct heading <h1> tags).

Optimised

All in all, having a fast, responsive website—with proper semantic markup—is the best way to avoid the most common search engine ranking pitfalls.

I recommend the popular Yoast SEO plugin for meta titles and descriptions, and social media images.

Hosted & Supported

I can offer affordable, fast and reliable hosting for your site, and keep WordPress and all plugins up to date to help keep your site secure.

What I Also Do

WooCommerce

WooCommerce is an ecommerce plugin for WordPress and the most popular ecommerce platform in the world. If you are a small/medium sized business looking to sell products online, WooCommerce might be for you.

I can integrate WooCommerce into your new or existing WordPress website. Contact me to find out more.

Shopify

I have experience customising Shopify themes. If you are looking to make changes to your Shopify store, get in touch.

Logo

If you don’t have one, I can design a logo for your business.

Photos

I know my way around a digital SLR, and am proficient in Photoshop/Lightroom.

Print

I can design your business card, leaflet, brochure, and other simple print work.

What I Don’t Do

Magento

Setting up a full Magento e-commerce site from start to finish is a major task that requires expert knowledge. I have some experience with Magento themes. If you have an existing Magento site that you just want to make some simple changes to, I may be able to help you.

Large Print Jobs

I won’t design your magazine, catalogue, stationery, banner, sign or poster.

Professional Photography

Sadly I don’t have access to high end lenses, flashes, reflectors etc.

Branding

I recommend you hire someone who just does design, or an agency.
