Website Design

A new website you’ll be proud to start promoting!

So you want an affordable website but without all the hassle that goes with it?

As a Brighton-based website designer, I specialise in creating beautiful, clean and easy to maintain websites for small business owners, online shops, bloggers, photographers & other creatives.

I can offer –

  • Beautiful & contemporary designs
  • Quality coding and development bringing your chosen design to life across multiple browsers & devices
  • Easy to use sites that you can update yourself, or keep me involved if you want to focus your time elsewhere
  • Friendly help & prompt support both throughout your project and for as long as you wish afterwards

I tend to use WordPress for most of the sites I create – largely because of its outstanding flexibility and the fact that it also makes it very easy for you, the end user to add/edit/update things once the site is up and running, but I also have experience of working with most of the other major platforms and will be very happy to discuss which is likely to be most useful/suitable to your needs.

 


I warmly recommend Cassie who redesigned our website. She is truly professional, yet highly approachable and she just ‘gets it’. – Frederique – Bailey Contemporary Arts.


 

How it works
1) Initial Contact & Specification

First step is a chat (online or in person) to find out a little bit more about what it is you do and why you want a website.  We’ll then go on to discuss any ideas you might have as to how you would like your site to look.  I can also send you questionnaire with some helpful hints with regard to aspects you might like to consider.

2) Design

With an outline plan and timescale agreed, I’ll come up with a first draft design for you to approve, which we can then discuss and refine further as necessary.

3) Customisation

Once you’re happy with the overall design, I’ll start adding your company information (images, text etc) and creating the pages that will make up your site.

4) Website Launch & Handover

Once you’re happy with everything, I’ll show you you how it all works behind the scenes and how you can add/edit your own content if/when you wish to do so.  Then when you’re ready, we can set the site to go live and you can start promoting your business to the world!

 


I wanted to create a certain feel for my site. I had a picture in my head but try explaining that through email – I thought it was going to be impossible… wrong again. Cassie listened, listened to random thoughts and ideas and managed to translate those into something that exceeded all my expectations. The added bonus of help and back up when I need it just adds to the great service that has been provided. – Susan.


How much will it cost?

It’s perfectly possible to have a very simple blog-style website up and running within a few days, whereas more complex websites requiring sophisticated design and features can take weeks (if not months) to launch.  After a short chat with you, I’ll usually be able to predict fairly accurately how long your new website is likely to take and can quote accordingly but to give you at least some idea, below you’ll find some examples of the type of options I can offer –
