Frequently Asked

FAQ's

  • Why use a freelance web designer?

    A freelance web designer can offer great value for money compared to an agency, whilst offering top quality websites and a more personal service.

  • What locations do you cover?

    I have spent years working remotely with businesses of all shapes and sizes. I've worked on freelance web design projects with clients based in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Essex, Oxford, Hereford, Gloucester and probably a city near you.

  • How much does a freelance website designers charge?

    The rates can vary depending on many factors, from experience to efficiency. Generally in the UK you'd be looking at minimum £40 an hour for a quality freelancer. As a rough guide, please see below my ballpark figures:

    Static Websites £2000+
    Content-Managed Websites £2500 +

  • How long does a website take to build from a freelance web designer?

    On average, a website project can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of months, depending on size.

  • How can I become a freelance web designer?

    I get a lot of website traffic from young designers looking to become freelance web designers. I would advise gaining industry experience within an agency and getting that vital client experience, even if it's just for a short-term contract. The business side is just as important as your skill-set for long-term success!

  • What's the difference between a freelance web designer and a freelance web developer?

    A web designer designs how things look and feel, usually in a digital design canvas, like Figma or Sketch. A front-end developer then brings this to life in the browser, layering on interaction and user experience. I have years of experience and knowledge in both areas, so I can become a great asset to businesses looking to bridge that gap between design and development.

  • Should I hire a web design expert, or a web design agency?

    Hiring a freelance web designer can quite often be cheaper than an agency. They generally have less overheads which means lower hourly rates.
