Website Design with You in Mind
Good Website Design means your website should connect with your audience, reflect your brand and support your goals. It should be easy to navigate, look great on any device, and have the potential for high rankings on Google.
Who I work with
The size of projects that Purple Dog work on can be from one page to hundreds of pages and can include news posts, galleries, and more. It normally takes between 4 to 8 weeks from start to finish, to complete a Website Design project. Purple Dog recognise that every project has its own individual needs, so I quote individually for every custom website. Whether you are a new business requiring your own website, or you already have a website that needs transforming or upgrading, I am here to help.
If you're a new business looking for a guide to website starting costs or an affordable way to get online take a look at Purple Dog's Starter Packages.
No matter how big or small the project, you’ll get the same incredible customer service.

Creating websites for you
I build websites in WordPress. In non-geek speak, WordPress is web publishing software you can use to create your own website. Over 75 million websites are built with WordPress. Here are some reasons why:
Easy to use Content Management System
You're in control of the content on your site and can easily change the text and images over time as you need to. Updating your website shouldn’t be a daunting or scary task - It should be simple. Having a website that gets updated consistently will help your Google rankings
It's Open Source
This means the source code of the software is available for any one to study, modify and develop. That means that hundreds of volunteers from all around the world are constantly creating and improving the code for the WordPress software. It also means support is in abundance!
It's a flexible framework and highly customisable
This means I can deliver the look you want to match your brand. It's also easy to make responsive. Not all users will sit at a desk to view your website. They use your website on their mobile & tablet devices whilst travelling to work on a train, or even whilst watching TV. Allowing your website to respond to different devices, whether it’s a desktop, tablet or mobile will ensure you give your user that unique experience. It also gives you that technical edge over your competition.
Your business will grow and therefore so will your website. There are thousands of plugins and templates available which can reduce costs and deployment time.
I'm an experienced WordPress Website Designer. I'd love to know more about your project needs!
Putting a Website Design together properly is a necessarily complex task, but it doesn’t have to be a painful one!
Here’s a brief guide to how I'll work with you:
This is where all the fun starts!
I will build you a bespoke Website Design based on your branding, colours, functionality requirements, and the best usability practices.
I design layouts for the homepage and a key internal page. This stage of the project is typically done using flat visual mockups that are developed for your approval before beginning the build.
You will get to view the website on our servers enabling you to add any final “tweaks”.
This stage involves testing all functionality and internal linking, proof-reading and fixing any outstanding Website Design/build issues.
I will ask questions to uncover why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve.
You gather together all relevant material you would like to incorporate on the site (text copy, photographs, artwork, company logos, etc). I’ll work on sitemaps and wireframing.
Content Build Out
Now it’s time for me to put everything together and let the magic begin!
I’ll build the site on our servers, so you’ll be able to view the project once complete.
After your project is fully tested and receives your approval, it’s time to LAUNCH and your new website will be live!
I will also ensure your site is submitted to popular search engines.
Whether you want a simple website to showcase your company, a website where you want to upload your own content regularly and easily, or a fully operational e-commerce site, I'm ready to make it a reality.
