My approach


Every successful website project starts with research and strategy. We look into your market and research your competitors to ensure we connect your business with your ideal clients. Your website is not just for you, but your customers too!


Your website should be more than just beautiful. It should be optimised for search engines as well as the users who visit it. Your website should display perfectly across all device types, and most importantly effectively communicate the value your business provides.


Your website is an extension of your brand— that means the colours, typography, photography, and importantly, the message all remain consistent. This helps clients easily recognise your business and differentiate you from your competitors.

Search Engines

SEO is an ongoing effort to help you attract highly-targeted traffic to your site through improving your search results rankings. Our websites are built with basic optimisation out of the box to get you started.


It’s crucial your website looks, and functions perfectly across today’s wide range of device sizes and types. This starts with “responsive” design that automatically adapts to the users device, ensuring your website is easy to navigate in any environment.


Analytics are what makes digital marketing the most powerful tool on the planet. By gaining insight to your visitors you can continually test, adjust, and apply changes to your website to improve your results and return on investment.

Your website design

The design of your website and how it displays across different devices is one of the most important things to get right.

“Responsive Design” is a term that you may have previously heard. It refers to a website design that scales down to suit the size of screen on which it is being displayed. This ensures that no matter what device your potential customer is using to visit your website, they have a great experience.

Why is this important you ask? Well, the average business website will get 40% – 50% of traffic from users on mobile and tablet devices. This number can be as high as 80% for some industries!

Does it make sense to potentially miss out on half of the potential customers that visit your website, just because it didn’t load well on their device?

TIP: If you have a current website, loading your website on your smartphone and on a tablet device such as an iPad. Is the website easy to use without needing to zoom in? Can you understand the message on your website?

Just like other technology industries, the web design industry moves forwards at a rapid pace. A design element that was a great idea and attractive in 2010, may not have the same impact on your website visitors today. It’s important to regularly review and assess your website to ensure that it still has an impact on your target audience.

Updating your website can be similar to decorating your home. Refreshing the colours of your walls or choice of furnishings can have a great impact on the look and feel of your home. The same goes for your website. Giving your website a fresh coat of paint or updating the look and feel, helps to keep you in touch with your audience and take advantage of modern design trends.

TIP: Take an objective look at your website, as if you were a potential customer. Does your website feel like it presents the right message? How does your website compare to your competitors?

My Work

A few examples of my work from a range of industries.

Is your website capturing enough leads?

User Experience

A poor user experience is one of the most common reasons for a visitor to leave your website. 

How easy is your website to use for your visitors?

User Experience is quite a vast topic, but here’s 5 things that a visitor should be able to do when they reach your website:

  • Understand your message – You have around 5 seconds to capture the attention of a visitor when they come to your website. Your USP (Unique Selling Proposition) should explain what you do and who you do it for, and why the visitor should choose you over your competition. The visitor needs to know that they are in the right place.


  • Easily contact your business – Whether you want to receive enquiries via telephone, email or a well constructed paper aeroplane, you need to have clear and visible contact details on your website’s pages.


  • Navigate your site with ease – Your navigation should be intuitive and easy to use, so visitors can browse your website and engage with your content.


  • Follow a clear call to action – Every page on your website should have a purpose for your visitors. If you’re looking to generate enquiries from your website, then your Call To Action (CTA) could be an enquiry form or a button that links through to your Contact page.


  • Review trust factors – A potential customer is going to be someone who doesn’t yet trust you. Trust factors such as awards, affiliations, certifications, case studies, guarantees, testimonials and reviews, can build trust in the eyes of the visitor.

A great Berkshire independent web designer will ensure your business is represented by a beautifully made website, with a good user experience to help increase customer retention.
