I build individually-designed websites, specifically tailored to my clients' needs. Great design and great code means a web presence that will really work for your business.
I know that businesses have to work within a budget and accordingly I charge by the project, not by the hour. Estimates are free and I won't pressure you in any way.
I help you understand how SEO works, so that your website will have the most search engine-friendly content, sitting inside the clean, standards-compliant code that Google loves.
I am a little busy at the moment but if you are interested in working with me on a project and it is not too urgent, please do get in contact.
Why choose me for website design
Real technical expertise
I have an unusually solid technical background having worked as a lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Kent in Canterbury for many years - lecturing on Web Design and a wide variety of programming languages and techniques. Prior to this I did a degree in Modern languages (linguistic skills are very useful when dealing with website copy). And before that I took a Foundation Art course, always intending to go into a design-based career.
All the right skills
All this means that I have the design skills, programming skills and linguistic skills required to build websites which look great, read well, function correctly and are truly standards-compliant.
Because I really enjoy what I do I always give 110% to my clients. I'm a complete perfectionist and won't declare a site ready unless it's spot on.
Search Engine Optimisation
I relish the challenge of getting websites a good search engine ranking. With the major search engines putting increasing importance on authenticity of content, having a linguistic background is of great benefit in this fast-moving and fascinating area. I will do all I can to get your site noticed without charging the earth. You can read a little more about this above. above.
