I would recommend him to anyone

Joe was skilled at finding out how I wanted my website to function and look. He listened to what I wanted but because of his comprehensive knowledge of web design, he was able to suggest more excellent ideas so that my finished site was much better than I could have imagined. He is efficient, replied to my emails swiftly and communicated his ideas. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to make their website work for them and work well.

Joe's design has made a significant contribution

Joe's thoughtful branding and thorough website design for CropDrop has made a significant contribution to our credibility as a professional and reliable community organisation, allowing us to gain the trust and recommendations of allotment holders and affordable food projects quickly. Without it we would not have achieved such a successful network for sharing fresh produce, which makes a positive difference to people living with food insecurity in Bath & NE Somerset.

I love the final product

I am very happy with my website and online store. Joe has been professional and guided me through the whole design process — he sorted every little detail. I love the final product and it has been a pleasure to work with Joe for this project. I strongly recommend him.

Is SEO included in your website development?


When I create your website, I ensure that the fundamental principles of SEO are incorporated. This includes clean and organised code, mobile responsiveness, and meta tags optimisation. However, while these foundational SEO practices help your website to be accessible and understandable to search engines, achieving higher rankings—especially in competitive sectors—may require ongoing, dedicated SEO efforts. If you're looking for more advanced SEO strategies or ongoing SEO services, please let me know, and we can discuss the best approach tailored to your needs.

What's the process of working with you from start to finish?


When you choose to work with me, it's essential that we have a seamless journey together, resulting in a website that perfectly matches your vision. Here's an overview of the comprehensive steps we'll follow:

  • Discovery: First things first, it's all about understanding. We'll discuss your project aims, the messages you wish your website to communicate, and any design inspirations you might have. Whether through video or phone calls, I ensure to align closely with all stakeholders involved.
  • Design: Based on our discussions, I'll create an initial design mock-up. You'll then have the opportunity for two rounds of revisions.
  • Development: With our design established, I'll embark on the development phase, expertly integrating all the required website elements.
  • Testing: Before finalising everything, it's paramount that we iron out the kinks. This step is all about refining, debugging, and ensuring smooth user experiences.
  • Content: We'll ensure your website speaks volumes by adding any remaining static content, making it informative and engaging.
  • Completion: The moment of magic! I'll set up essential logins (such as for your Content Management System) and ensure your website is live and shining on your chosen domain.

I'm dedicated to making this process as collaborative and transparent as possible, ensuring that at each phase, you're in the loop and satisfied with the progress. Together, we'll create a website that you're proud to showcase.
