WordPress Web Design & Development

WordPress Web Design

I am a freelance WordPress designer based in Eastbourne, Sussex UK, I have been providing bespoke WordPress web design for over a decade, WordPress offers a flexible and powerful, SEO-friendly website core.

What is WordPress?

In short, WordPress is a FREE open source content management system (CMS). Commonly used to create blogs, yet offering thousands of extendable plugins to increase the website functionality. WordPress is currently being used by 75 million websites worldwide.

Bespoke WordPress Website Design

I don’t use pre-made purchased themes*. All my WordPress websites are custom-designed from scratch. Each website is crafted to perfectly fit each client’s need, only using plugins to add essential functionality.

Clean Efficient Coding

Keeping my code clean and as efficient as possible, ensuring fast page loads, allowing future development to simply plugin without a lot of theme hacking.

WordPress Flexibility

WordPress initially began life as a simple blogging platform, however, it has evolved into a powerful platform capable of achieving almost anything.

WordPress For Your Business

As well as creating beautiful websites and blogs, WordPress can be extended to create e-commerce sites, portfolios, membership sites, online directories, estate agency websites & catalogues, making a WordPress website design perfect for your business.

Pre-Made WordPress Themes

WordPress offers a range of pre-made themes, plus there are thousands of premium themes available. Many website designers will use a theme and simply add a few customisations on colour, images, and fonts.

And Their Disadvantages

While themes can serve a purpose, they are mostly one-size-fits-all, can look and feel the same, can be overblown relying heavily on gimmicky animation, can be tricky for the non-tech minded to update their content, and can require constant updates to fix vulnerabilities, and, if the developer removes support, you would be advised to update to a new theme for security reasons.

WordPress Security

Being an open-source platform can leave WordPress installations susceptible to hacking, however, keeping the core system and plugins up-to-date goes a long way to avoiding hacking.

Sit Back And Relax

I provide web design and hosting plans to keep your site healthy free from infections, keeping the system and plugins up-to-date, monitored hosting alerts, with daily back-ups, and monthly offline back-ups, utilising a premium security plugin all to give you peace of mind. Should you be unfortunate and are hacked, I will restore the site within the monthly hosting fee.

*WordPress Theme Design

Now, I know I said earlier that I don’t use pre-made WordPress themes, well, that’s not entirely accurate.

Start-Up Business WordPress Themes

I provide pre-made WordPress themes, to suit startup businesses on a budget, the difference, I designed and built these themes. My pre-made themes are only available to my customers, they offer a great way to get your business online, and are fully future-proof and customisable.

I’ve known Lee for years and asked him to design my website nearly 14 years ago. I’m still complimented on it. Lee occasionally updates and amends... it when necessary. He’s always available and works quickly on whatever is needed. He’s a fantastic graphic designer, which gives his websites an edge. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.read more
