I make smart, attractive websites which are high quality and high impact. Whether you need a custom design or are happy to use a premade template, I can find a solution for you. All of my websites are mobile responsive, so your content is crisp and clear regardless of the device being used.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
SEO is a critical facet of your website’s performance. People use computers, mobile devices and even voice assistants to search for products and services, and your website needs to be optimised for them all. Quite often design choices are driven by aesthetics, not SEO. I’ll explain the factors we need to consider to make sure your website structure and content follow Google best practice, to enhance your findability for all types of search.
Website performance is an important factor for both user experience and Google’s indexing algorithm. To get it right, your website needs performant from the start and not something you deal with afterwards. If you’re using sitebuilder software make sure you have sufficient optimisation control to make the changes you need.
I pay attention to performance and always test, test, test as I go. I want to make sure you get a result that reflects the quality and professionalism of your business.
