What My Clients Say

Kathy Rainey

Wow, I was truly impressed with everything -- from the quality of his work, to his timeliness and his communication with me. Russ is proactive and certainly a top-notch developer! I look forward to the next task with a sense of confidence!"

Omri Dor

Russell took my specs, knew exactly what questions to ask to have all the information he needs, knew all the best practices and plugins that would make my life easier, actually paid for a plugin himself without asking for extra funds, and he was working under a lot of pressure because I had a CRAZY deadline to meet. HIGHLY recommended!


"Russ was Amazing! Went above and beyond and did such a great job on getting our WordPress Gravity Forms to be customized just how we hoped they would finally look. Excited to work with Russ again on future projects as his skills to communicate, execute, and complete our project was perfect."

As a leading freelance website designer and developer, I have a bespoke process from the beginning of your project through to the end.  I tailor your web design to fit your unique requirements.  The bespoke websites I make are lovingly crafted in Photoshop before being custom coded into a unique Wordpress theme.  If your budget is a little lower, I can customise existing pre-built themes to fit your requirements.

What is the difference between website design and website development?

Website design is the creation of a website layout usually as a flat image. Tools such as Photoshop, Sketch or Adobe XD are used to create the UI and UX of a website layout. The site is not a functional working site, but rather a flat image that shows where elements should be on the page, and how they should look. Website Development is then coding that website, using coding languages such as PHP, HTML and CSS to turn the flat image into a functioning website.

How much does website design cost?

Website design cost varies depending on multiple factors, including complexity of the design and the amount of pages. As a general rule, you should expect to pay £2000-3000 GBP for a homepage design, and anywhere from £300-£1000 per additional page.

How much does wordpress website development cost?

Wordpress website development cost also varies massively, depending on the complexity of the designs, the size of the website, and the functionality required. Basic 'brochure' websites can cost £3000-6000GBP to code, whereas more complex websites such as ecommerce sites can range from £6000-10,000+ GBP. Cheaper options are available if you use a pre-built theme.

Why should I hire a freelance website designer?

Freelance website designers like me charge a much lower rate than a web design agency. Usually agencies have large overheads to cover, such as the cost of their offices, and employee wages. A freelance website designer can offer a lower rate as they usually work from home, or in a cheap remote office. Website design agencies also tend to have a large amount of clients, making you feel more like a number than a valued customer. A freelance website designer has limited availability, so usually takes on less work - allowing them to concentrate more fully on your requirements!
