What makes a great website?

A great website is one that allows the visitor to find the info their searching for throughout the site, with eye catching graphics that don't take over from the content. Easy to use navigation and interaction is key.

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

My first question is always, what do you want your website to achieve, or how do you want this marketing campaign to work. Most clients have an idea of what they want anyway, but gentle guidance is essential to show what can be achieved with great results.

I also ask if they have a logo already designed, if not we can start with that, but if they have then that's a great place to start with looking at colour schemes and fonts. Then most clients will tell me what sites they admire, so that gives me a good indication of what style to try.

What do you love most about your job?

The variation in projects, marketing campaigns, large format and poster printing, sometimes revamping a tired looking site, more often than not designing websites, logos, brochures, posters, vehicle graphics from scratch with a blank canvass and getting to know and understand clients realm of expertise and industry.

Always interesting and always a great feeling when a client is extremely happy with a design project.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Always loved being creative and also love the technical side of graphic design. I was a senior marketing designer for a while before the company I worked for relocated 100 miles away, so that gave me the push to start my own business in 2001 and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

Why should our clients choose you?

I like to think I am dependable, trustworthy, I always strive to meet deadlines agreed with the client, I also think that 80% of the work I get is through referral from previous happy clients which sort of says it all. My main aim with any project is for my client to be totally satisfied with the final result.

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.
