Websites made simple

Breathing life into your website requires a harmonious blend of technical skills, creativity, and a thorough understanding of your unique needs. Whether the task is crafting a bespoke solution from the ground up or customizing a WordPress or Shopify platform, I possess the expertise needed to create robust, accessible, and high-performing websites that serve both your vision and your users' needs effectively.

Yet a brilliant website goes beyond appealing design. With my freelance website development service, I develop websites that don't just look good – they're built with functionality, speed, and accessibility in mind. Whether you already have a design in mind or require my design services, every website I develop is uniquely crafted to cater to your target audience, ensuring an optimal user experience regardless of the device they're using.

How It Works

Here's a closer look at my streamlined website development process.

1). Initial Consultation

Our journey starts with understanding your vision for the website. Whether you have a specific design in mind or need my design services, we'll discuss your goals and preferences to inform the selection of platform and tools, be it WordPress, Shopify, or a custom solution. Together, we'll establish the best approach for your unique needs.

2). Collaborative Development

Once the groundwork is laid, I begin bringing your website to life. I'll keep you updated with regular updates and previews, allowing you to see the evolution of your site firsthand. Your feedback is invaluable during this stage as it guides me to fine-tune and adjust the development process in real-time.

3). Final Tests & Revisions

Upon completing the website, I conduct a series of final tests to ensure optimal performance and seamless user experience. If there are any last-minute changes you wish to see, or if any elements need adjustments, this stage allows us to perfect every detail.

4). Website Launch

When everything is ready to go, we transition to the exciting launch phase. But remember, the journey doesn't end with the launch - I'll be here for ongoing support to help you succeed in your digital adventure.

Read through some of my most frequently asked questions.

What if I need both design and development services?

This is often the case. Many of my clients choose to utilise both my design and development services. I find that opting for both design and development services tends to yield the best results. The advantage here is the consistency and synergy created when I manage both aspects. Leveraging my years of experience in design and development, I can ensure a seamless fusion of compelling design and high-performance functionality in your site.

What platforms do you typically use for website development?

The choice of platform primarily hinges on your website's specific needs and functions. If your goal is to sell products online, I often work with user-friendly platforms such as Shopify or WordPress in combination with a tool known as WooCommerce. For more straightforward websites that require fewer updates once built, I typically opt for static site generators like 11ty.

If you have a specific platform in mind, I'm more than open to discussing how we can make it work best for your website.

How long does it take for you to complete a project?

The time it takes to complete a project can vary depending on several factors, such as the scope of the project, the complexity of the design, and the client's needs and preferences. However, I always strive to provide a realistic timeline for each project, and I communicate clearly and regularly with my clients throughout the process to ensure that we stay on track.

Can you create e-commerce websites?

Absolutely, I can. I have considerable experience creating e-commerce websites and am proficient with platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce. Whether you're starting a new online store or improving an existing one, I can provide the expertise needed to create a smooth, user-friendly shopping experience for your customers.

Do you provide training on how to manage and update the website after it's launched?

Definitely! The platforms I use are designed to let you manage and update certain aspects of your site, such as blog posts, on your own. Please note that only the dynamic parts of your site that we've agreed on will be editable. For those who prefer not to handle these updates themselves, I also offer website maintenance packages. We can discuss all of these options during our initial consultation to find the best fit for your needs.
