Why hire me?
If you need a freelance web designer in Bristol, get in touch. I’ll be happy to discuss your requirements and provide a competitive quote.
I design and build websites from scratch using the WordPress content management system. This allows you to access and edit your website content – add news articles, images, blog posts and more. I can also supply a video tutorial to demonstrate how to use the system.
All the websites I build are mobile-friendly. The layout adapts to the visitor's screen size, resulting in an excellent experience for mobile and tablet users. This is very important – over half your website visitors will typically be using a mobile device.
I build websites with an eye on SEO. If you supply target key-phrases for Google rankings, I'll name pages, URLs, images and content accordingly. If your keywords are competitive, I can recommend a specialist SEO company to help achieve excellent results.
Every website is designed specifically with the client and end-user in mind. I don't use off-the-shelf WordPress themes. This means you get a website that meets your requirements and is targeted towards your customers.
After submitting an initial layout, I work with the client's feedback to provide a final design to their approval. From here I build the website on a test server. This allows the client to check the site thoroughly before launch. Once approved, I migrate the final site over to their live web space.
Excellent customer service
After launching your new website, I'm just a phone call away if you have any problems or questions. I can also make updates and upgrades to keep pace with your evolving business.

Freelance Web Designer FAQs
How much do you charge for freelance web design?
Cost varies according to your requirements. After an initial discussion, I typically quote upfront for the complete design and build of your website.
If you have ongoing requirements we can discuss an hourly rate for all work.
Do you work onsite or remotely?
I work remotely from my own office with my own equipment. I'm happy to meet up at your place of work to discuss project requirements.
Do you work with any companies outside of Bristol
If your requirements are such that we don't need to meet in person, I'm happy to work regardless of your location. We can communicate via phone, email and video-call.
What CMS do you use?
I exclusively use WordPress CMS. It's well-supported, user-friendly and works well for websites of all sizes. After building your website, I can provide a video tutorial demonstrating how to use the WordPress system.
Can you build a site from my design?
Absolutely, I can build a complete WordPress website from your design. I'll need layered files in either Photoshop, Illustrator or XD format.
Are your websites tablet- and mobile-friendly?
Yes – I build all websites with multiple devices in mind. The design will adapt to the screen size of the end user. This means your visitors see a version of your website that is well optimised for their device.
Can you host my website?
I don't offer a web hosting service. However, I can recommend a great hosting company if you don't already have this organised. I use a supplier that specialises in WordPress websites. They provide additional functionality that can improve the speed of your website.
Will my website rank highly in Google?
After completing your website, I'll submit a sitemap to Google. This makes it aware that the site is live and it will index the pages. Rankings depend on your website content and how competitive your key phrases are. I build SEO-friendly websites that provide a great foundation; however, a specialist SEO company may be required to push you further up Google's index.
How long will it take to design and build my website?
I always aim to work to client timescales. I'll ask when you want to launch before accepting the project. If I can't hit your deadline, I'll let you know so you can look elsewhere. Otherwise, the time will depend on complexity and how busy my schedule is.
Do you build eCommerce websites?
If you have a modest range of products, I can build an eCommerce website. I use WordPress and Woocommerce.

“Stuart has produced two websites for Operation Noah, along with a logo for a new campaign, and we were very happy with the results. His work is both excellent quality and good value, but equally important he is a pleasure to work with: helpful, professional and always prompt (and patient!) when responding to requests. His customer service is exemplary, both during the course of a project and if any help is needed afterwards. Highly recommended.”
