What makes a great website?

A great website is one that is easily found, visually attractive and not overloaded with content.

Images need to be of the right resolution and quality - and be relevant to the website content.

Giving enough information to keep potential customers interested yet easy for them to find out more, or ask questions.

A great website is also secure, safe and easy to navigate - especially for eCommerce websites.

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

What is the purpose of the website? For example is it information sharing, online shop,
Do you have a vision that you want it to look like?
Who are your target audience and demographics?
Do you have any branding requirements?
Have you seen a website already that you like the look and feel of?
Are you working to a target timescale?
Do you have a budget that you need to work towards?
Any special processing that is required?
Who is going to be maintaining the website going forward (technical ability)?
How is the website going to be kept up to date (for example news/blog items)?
Do you have visibility of the page structure that is needed?
Is the content written (or partially written)?
Do you have access to high quality images?

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to create something visual that meets my clients requirements. I love having the control and ability to make changes to ensure that the vision and requirements are being fully met.
Most of all I love providing a high quality customer service for a reasonable price - I want my customers to remain with me going forward, and the only way they will do that is if I provide the right services for the right prices.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked in a Global Corporate Information Technical environment for over 27 years, when the opportunity came to move on from this environment I knew that the time was right for me to take those skills and knowledge and apply them in an environment where I can make a difference - this is the reason why I target small to medium sized businesses and organisations.
I love running my own business, it's certainly not the easy route - but it is by far the most rewarding from a job satisfaction perspective.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a small business, providing a personal service. Every client and every project is important to me.
I don't fail my customers, we work together to ensure that they get the right solution, for the right budget in the right timescale.
If something is outside of my area of expertise then I will be upfront about it, and support them in finding an alternative supplier, but I do like a challenge, and don't like to be beaten by computers.
I am happy to put prospective clients in touch with existing and previous clients if they would like a first hand testimonial about my work.

Web Design FAQs

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.
