Client Testimonials

Thanks to Mike, I’m really proud of my new website. I dreaded creating my new website and had spoken to a few web designers who either overwhelmed me or I didn’t feel listened. Mike listened, understood and calmly guided me both creatively and technically.

Mike has recently helped me with a website which I am very happy with. He has explained each step as we have moved on and provided lots of help and support. His communication is always speedy and accurate. I thoroughly recommend Mike. Thank you.

Mike has worked on a number of sites for me. His work is excellent and is always completed within the timescales stated. I also like that Mike offers a number of alternative ideas, which are often better that the original concept. A complete professional.

About Me

I have been building websites since 2007, first using old fashioned HTML and CSS and more recently working exclusively with WordPress. I enjoy working with small or early stage business owners and entrepreneurs who may be time or tech poor, but still want to showcase what they do with an effective website.

I take great pride in forging lasting business relationships with my clients – they can rely on me to be there when they need me (within reason off course).

You’ll always get 100% and I’ll be up-front if there’s a piece of work that is outside of my remit. I don’t believe in taking on a job that I can’t do and will happily recommend a business who will be able to help.

I support The Ethical Move

At the foot of my website you may have seen a little yellow circle with the words ‘the ethical move’ in it. This shows my support for this organisation, whose aim is to collectively change the marketplace towards transparency, responsibility, and honesty.

Currently, our global economy only benefits a small part of the world, and an even smaller fraction within that. We are facing a massive humanitarian, health, and climate crisis, a growing wealth gap, incredible amounts of waste, discrimination, exploitation, displacement, and fear.
