From new website designs to stunning website redesigns, I love working with female founders and small business owners to help achieve a unique and successful web presence.  One that showcases their product and services in the best light, and engages with their ideal customer. A website that stands out online, and wont cost a fortune!

I'll help you create a professional and fully responsive website, tailored to fit your small business and your vision, that will be easy to maintain. It will be built so it is optimised for search engines (so Google finds it!) and I can teach you how to maintain it so you can take care of the basics yourself and allow your business to flourish.

Sharene had outgrown her website, now 5 years old it no longer reflected her brand. After a rebrand, I worked with Sharene on some brand photography as well as the new website design and launch.  Sharene has reported that the new site has led to an increase in enquiries and she's been attracting her ideal clients.

As part of a rebrand for Corrigans Original, I was approached to redesign their website.  Working with the beautiful illustrations by the artist Charlotte Day, the initial objective of the website was to build brand awareness and as a B2B sales tool.  The plan is to add an online shop to it in the future.

Launching a new business in a completely new industry takes vision and bravery. It was such a privilege to work in partnership with Gayle at Sunflower Celebrations, who had a very clear brand vision from the outset.  I did a very happy dance when she said at the first creative presentation that I had "nailed the brief, and more".  After launching her business, within a month she had fully booked her Summer wedding calendar.

Emma had outgrown her website in the two years she had been in business, and as a previous photography client of mine, approached me to give her site a complete redesign.  It's great to work on a project that includes a photography brief, as I was able to seamlessly bring the photographic style and website design together to create a strong brand image.

An elegant, clean and beautiful design was briefed for this photography business to reflect the new branding and allow the photography portfolio to take centre stage.  Incorporating a blog and a simple sales enquiry tool, it has generated an uplift in sales enquiries.

Michelle runs The Surrey Studio and had been selling her handmade stationary & gifts through Etsy. She wanted to elevate her brand and start to sell directly. I worked with her to create her brand identity, develop a stock of product photography, and bring her beautiful brand to life in an online store.

Take a look at a few more of my sites.  Just click on the image!

My websites start from £550.  However it really depends on what kind of website you need. I am very happy to chat and give you a guide price.

How much do you charge for a website?

Hosting is included on the development platforms that I use making it very easy for you to manage everything in one place and with one account.

Do I need to arrange hosting?

Definitely. I do a basic level of SEO on your site to ensure it will deliver against your keywords, and also ensure you are set up in Google Analytics and Google Search Console.

Is SEO included?

I would allow approximately 6 weeks from kicking off the brief to launching your site. It is partly dependent on the time spent at the feedback and approval stage.

How long does it take to build a website?

Absolutely! I only work on platforms that allow clients to easily update as needed.  I will give you all the training to be able to make website amendments and  also offer an annual or ad-hoc website maintenance service. 

Can I update the website myself once it’s been built?

There are lots of providers like Godaddy where you can buy your domain name. I sort out all the rest and arrange the domain name mapping.

How do I get a domain name?
