& Some Of Our Work

There seems to be a constant flow of web design lately. Perhaps because most marketing is going online, but maybe they come here as I don’t just slap your details into a template for everyone.

I research your industry, look at the best sites out there nationally or internationally for what you do, then write the copy, find the pics or take them.then make the site look good & read well. Then I can put a video together for you too. It will bring your site to life and help with your rankings.

But bear in mind the strongest attribute I have is commercial creativity. If you want while we research your market and your competitors we can come up with something different…that works!

Please look at the portfolio. I have worked on numerous major national projects while based in Barnard Castle because I get things done…& maybe I’m too cheap…but that’s good news for you.

Our Services


We will research your market competitors and find the right look and content for your site up to a maximum of 6 pages. We will write thecopy, find up to 12 suitable stock photos and/or take some ourselves, all within the price. If you have any special needs (eg menus or special forms, google map locations etc.) we will find the free plug ins for you and add it in too. We will even also throw in some basic SEO (keywords, alt tags, etc.). Then to finish off we offer a full year’s free hosting for the site.


Plus, some grants are available for up to 40% off this price.
