Hey, I'm Richie!

I'm an award-winning developer and designer from Liverpool, England. My aim is to create and produce the best sites around - not only from a conversion point of view, but in terms of user experience and getting the user to return frequently.

A number of things go into creating a great website, for example:

-User Experience
-Content (videos, images, etc)
-Quality of product (if an e-commerce website)
-No spammy popup forms or unrelated popups
-Clear typefaces (links to design)
-Clear vision, in terms of navigating around the site (links to User Experience)

The biggest thing is your vision. What you want the site to do, and what you want to achieve. From there, I can set about designing and implementing a strategy for us to follow for you to achieve the results you want.

We start off with the design process, where I will create a series of mockups, wire-frames and a colour palette/style guide. Once you're happy with the design, we move onto the core development, which will be building the skeleton site. After that, we can work on User Experience (adding animations and effects), and then move onto optimising the site for search engines (SEO).

I need the project name, and any assets ideally. Also having links to some other sites that you like the look of would help the design process.

I love the freedom and the unexpected. Everyday is a new challenge. But the most exciting part is once the website is finished and you start seeing it convert, -the customer getting leads. Also winning awards is a pretty cool feeling! (I have 5 so far!)

I am freelancing at the moment - I work for a fully serviced Digital Agency in Liverpool during the day. We specialise in e-commerce (Shopify).

Because I know what it takes to create a great website. I'm proven in creating and designing websites that are built to perform.


Every website I make is coded by-hand. No plugins - just pure custom development. This reduces bloat and load times, whilst making your site completely custom and unique. No themes or theme builders.

I work with Adobe Photoshop and Sketch to produce prototypes, mockups and full-site designs. I do this for every single project.
