Service I offer
Wordpress is used by over 30% of the entire internet, and there's a reason for that. I specialise in developing bespoke websites in Wordpress. All my websites are created using the latest technologies. I can create any type of website, from a basic one-page brochure site, to a detailed ecommerce website with multiple product variations.
Service I offer
All the websites I create are designed with care and attention in Adobe Photoshop. Designs are carefully created to cater for your exact needs and to appeal to your target audience. My detailed background and understanding of User Experience ensures that all the sites I create not only look great, but they are user friendly also!
Service I offer
Wordpress is very powerful, but it also comes with the need for regular maintenance. Plugins, themes and even Wordpress itself are regularly updated, and it's essential they are done right. I offer a full package maintenance plan that includes updates, daily backups, website monitoring, SEO ranking checks and much more...

If you already have a website you're happy with, but you need some tweaks, I can still help!

My customers love me
Russell took my specs, knew exactly what questions to ask to have all the information he needs, knew all the best practices and pluging that would make my life easier, actually paid for a plugin himself without asking for extra funds, and he was working under a lot of pressure because I had a CRAZY deadline to meet. HIGHLY recommended!
Wow, I was truly impressed with everything -- from the quality of his work, to his timeliness and his communication with me. Russ is proactive and certainly a top-notch developer! I look forward to the next task with a sense of confidence!"
Russ went above and beyond to create a perfect page template for us. I look forward to working with him again moving forward.
"Russ was Amazing! Went above and beyond and did such a great job on getting our WordPress Gravity Forms to be customized just how we hoped they would finally look. Excited to work with Russ again on future projects as his skills to communicate, execute, and complete our project was perfect."
"Russ has done a great job refurbishing a site with plenty of technical issues into something much more robust. His expertise, responsiveness and communication throughout the project was highly appreciated."
"Russ delivered what he promised and he did so quickly, while communicating clearly."
"Very good communication throughout and completed the work as requested. Will likely use again."
"I feel like I hit the WP lottery. Very happy with all aspects of Russ Clow's service. Already planning more projects for him."
"Russ was very responsive and quick to finish the work. Also was very forthcoming as to what the issue was and how he fixed it. Thank you!"
"We used Russ for a new WordPress/Divi/Woocommerce implementation. He did a good job, and was easy to work with."
I work with a lot of developers and technology folks... and I would rank Russell at the top of the list with some of the best I've worked with. Fast, very responsive and knows his stuff.

What is the difference between web design and web development?
Web design is the creation of a website layout usually as a flat image. Tools such as Photoshop, Sketch or Adobe XD are used to create the UI and UX of a website layout. The site is not a functional working site, but rather a flat image that shows where elements should be on the page, and how they should look. Website Development is then coding that website, using coding languages such as PHP, HTML and CSS to turn the flat image into a functioning website.
How much does web design cost?
Website design cost varies depending on multiple factors, including complexity of the design and the amount of pages. As a general rule, you should expect to pay £2000-3000 GBP for a homepage design, and anywhere from £300-£1000 per additional page.
How much does wordpress web development cost?
Wordpress web development cost also varies massively, depending on the complexity of the designs, the size of the website, and the functionality required. Basic 'brochure' websites can cost £3000-6000GBP to code, whereas more complex websites such as ecommerce sites can range from £6000-10,000+ GBP. Cheaper options are available if you use a pre-built theme.
Why should I hire a freelance website designer?
Freelance web designers like me charge a much lower rate than a web design agency. Usually agencies have large overheads to cover, such as the cost of their offices, and employee wages. A freelance web designer can offer a lower rate as they usually work from home, or in a remote office. Website design agencies also tend to have a large amount of clients, making you feel more like a number than a valued customer. A freelance website designer has limited availability, so usually takes on less work - allowing them to concentrate more fully on your requirements!
