What makes a great website?

A great website should be Mobile Friendly, accessible and easy to use for all users. It should be fast to load, and should have good, relevant and well formatted content. Navigation is extremely important so that users can find their way around the website without getting lost and frustrated. Browser compatibility is also extremely important as there are so many devices now and so many browsers that users can choose from.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What do you want to achieve from your website? What are your goals?
Who is your target audience?
Do you need a domain name and hosting set up?
How many website pages do you need?
Do you need a logo and branding or do you have these already?

What do you love most about your job?

The thing I love most about my job is starting a new project from scratch, meeting new people from all different walks of life and finding out about their passions and what they do. I also love taking something which is just an idea and turning it into reality for a client. It's so rewarding when you have a very happy client who can finally see their dream turned into a reality.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked as a Senior Systems Analyst for a large bank for 12 years. In that time I worked on many corporate projects, both in a design role and a development role. Our IT department was moved to Scotland and I was given the option of voluntary redundancy which I took. My husband and I decided to start our own business instead of me going back into the corporate environment. I'm so glad I did, I get to work for so many different people and have so much more freedom with the design process. This job never gets boring! I love it!

Why should our clients choose you?

I am reliable and very good at what I do. I will work with you and make sure you get the website that YOU want!

Web Design FAQs

Expand all

How much does web design cost? This is something that can be incredibly difficult to put a figure on due to the nature of the service. There are also differences based on whether you are looking to work with a freelancer or a web design agency, and also whether you need a large, complicated site or something more simple.

We can help you to connect with the right designer to suit your needs. A clear idea of what you need, and how many pages and features are required, will be influential when it comes to pricing. This will help you to get an accurate quote for web design.

These two terms may seem like they are used interchangeably but they are two different things. A designer will be focused on the visual and creating a UI to suit the user, whereas a web developer is usually focused on the actual core of the website, making it function and using coding to enable it to do what it is supposed to.

When working with a web designer, if you want the whole package of a fully finished and functioning website, check that this is something they can offer before you employ their services. Make sure you have understood if they are offering web design or development, or both.

  • Responsive - A responsive web page design means that the site is viewable on a number of devices. The design automatically sizes to the screen and the designer doesn’t need to make formats for different devices and desktops.

  • Liquid or Fluid - This is a style of design that will shrink or stretch to the shape of the browser, and the page will look enlarged or shrunk, rather than items being rearranged. The size of the items in the design alter in relation to one another depending on the browser being used.

  • Fixed design - Fixed pages do not alter according to the browser automatically. On some devices such as tablets this can make it harder to see the content as you need to scroll around the page or pinch the screen in order to zoom in on sections. Though it is sometimes essential, fixed design is becoming less common.

Whether you are working with a freelancer or a big agency, they will have a portfolio for you to view. This allows you to see other, similar projects they have worked on and decide if they have the skills you need.

There are a number of web design certifications and they may be happy to share any they have attained, but there isn’t one standardized industry body.

If you are worried about a designer’s credentials you can also check their feedback from other clients, which you can view on their Bark profile.

Should you work with a freelancer or an agency? This is one of the decisions you need to make when looking to plan a web design project.

Working with a freelance Web Designer
This may be an option that can save you money. Freelancers are often able to charge less as they don’t have the same overheads as an agency.

Working with a Web Design agency
Web design agencies may have a bigger set of skills to draw upon than a freelancer as they will usually have a number of staff and designers working for them. They may also be able to show you a bigger portfolio, but you can expect to pay more when using an agency.

Definitely! One of the advantages of hiring a web designer is that they are able to provide services to their clients from any location. However, if your website is for a local audience, then you might want to hire someone nearby rather than further afield, so that they better understand your target market.
