What makes a great website?

Great websites put their audience first. Whilst looks matter, "pretty" doesn't equal "profitable" - 90% of what makes a website successful is the invisible stuff professionals do in the background. A truly great website helps visitors to find what they are looking for as easily as possible - whether that's products, services, answers to questions or just high-quality content. To achieve that, professional web designers study stuff like interface design, user psychology, marketing and so on as well as coding and graphic design.

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

When others ask, "What do you want it to look like," I ask, "What do you want it to achieve?" - because that's more important. Everyone has different ideas about what "a web site" means, so I need to know its goals, and any mission-critical or nice-to-have features. Then I'll need an overview of your target market. If you have personal design preferences, that's fine - it's best to design for your audience first, but I want you to be happy with the design too.

Naturally, investment crops up, too. A website is a business investment - it should pay for itself, but that does require an initial outlay and ongoing maintenance. Under-investing risks total project failure, which wastes every penny spent. Cheap services cut corners and often lack experience - I focus on being cost-effective, as that reduces risk and maximises your ROI.

What do you love most about your job?

Done well, websites offer solutions to many problems. Whether you want to grow an existing business, provide a second income, create a community or develop innovative services, the web makes such goals far more cost-effective and achievable than they would be offline. In the past, niche market ideas always struggled to survive - unless you could sell them to big distributors, local markets were rarely enough. Now, anyone can tap into a global market of billions - so niche ideas can thrive and spark off even more ideas. That gives everyone's dreams a lot more potential, and I love helping people to realise their potential.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I've been "into computers" since 1974 and helped to set up NTL, Virgin and Which? in the late 90's. I'm a natural problem-solver who's always keen to help folks follow their dreams. As "an online business" became an increasingly common dream, starting a business to help with that was a natural move. That's why, unlike many designers and developers, I provide the services needed to grow an online business as well as helping to set them up.

Why should our clients choose you?

Decades of relevant experience and a full range of build-and-grow services means I build online businesses, not just websites.

Also, my experience spans design, development (bespoke programming) and marketing - *very* few people can claim that. Developing each skill-set takes years, and looking at problems from more than one perspective at a time is a rare skill in itself. Why should that matter? Well, the perspectives of designers, developers and marketers are often so much at odds that you need a project manager to keep them all on the same page. Working with a team adds complexity and cost, but choosing a single specialist limits many projects. It's like building a house - if you can't afford a full team of builders, would you ask a bricklayer to do the electrics, carpentry and plumbing? Or would you look for someone who had experience in all the relevant skills? Sure, such people are rare - but that's me.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

All my services are provided remotely, usually via email and phone. Video meetings are also an option.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

As I have always worked remotely, Covid-19 hasn't needed any changes to my business to keep customers safe.

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.
