Get custom WordPress design & development

Hi, I’m James, and I love to make beautifully designed fast-loading websites that help you to grow your business.

James Hunt

I’m a a professional WordPress web developer that helps people like you get the best possible website for their business.

I understand your problem. You need a new website. You know what you need it to achieve, you have a rough idea of how it should look, you need it to convert and make more sales, and you need it to rank higher than your competitors. You need a new design, maybe a new logo, and you need to automate more of your marketing as you are already maxed out.

But do you need a developer? A designer? A marketing person? You need someone that can help your website project get from A to Z.

Your new website – design, development, marketing

I lead a collective of professionals and partner with branding agencies, creative agencies, content marketing, SEO specialists and even online ads and conversion specialists, meaning that all aspects of your websites design, development and launch is covered from one place.

Aspects of your web design and development I can help you with:

Branding

How your company is interpreted by your customers starts with the look and feel. Your logo, the colours, the imagery, and the messaging. This is the bedrock of your company and should have the focus it deserves.

User experience

Researching your customers needs are important, what do they need to do, what do they expect from your website, what will help them make a purchase.

Content

Content for your website is important. Text is emotive, and your customers want to read about your products and services. So does Google. Using our user experience research, content should be crafted around your users needs, balanced with providing value to your customers and Google.

Website design

Website design is not simple, and needs to entwine your branding, user experience research and content requirements with essential design web methodologies. A web design will incorporate the branding and content work to help communicate with your users why your company is the right choice for them. Every website design is unique to the company it’s created for.

Website development

Based on the website design, your website is developed to be fast, focused on SEO, and fully-responsive (it will look great on mobiles, tablets or desktop devices). Ecommerce, mailing lists, product catalogues, CRM integrations and much more can be developed to save you time, money and staff resource.

SEO

Using knowledge from user experience research and content creation, a focus on SEO ensures your users can find your website on Google and other platforms. Using the latest SEO techniques, your content can help generate leads for your business, without spending on advertising.

Advertising

Advertising is perfect for giving a boost to your website with a new audience and for getting fast feedback. Digital advertising (Google ads, Facebook adverts and more) can help you push your content out to your audience much faster than organic SEO.

Advice

Advice is everywhere on the internet, but every company, every website, every customer has different needs. You need specific advice for your situation. I can help you navigate all of this information based on your companies needs, and suggest a solution based on real-life experience and successful projects.

Technologies I work with:

I aim to suggest the right platform for your needs. I predominantly work with WordPress, and find it’s a great fit for most companies.

But if WordPress isn’t right for your company, I’ll tell you. I’ve successfully deployed websites using the following:

  • WordPress
  • WooCommerce
  • Contentful
  • Ghost
  • Shopify
  • Static sites
  • Gatsby

But aren’t you a WordPress developer?

Yes, I’m a professional WordPress developer, and if you have your designs and content ready to go, you can hire me directly to develop your site. Part of being a great developer is understanding the many facets of design, development and marketing and how they interact with each other. Some of my customers don’t have access to quality designers to help them get started, so myself, and a team of other hand-picked professionals can work together to help make your website amazing.

Web design and development timescales and costs

A project incorporating branding, design, development, and marketing will normally take 2-3 months from start to finish. This is a realistic time after working with many companies – the larger the company the longer a project will typically take. Timescales can be shorter, but this is often dependent on your exact requirements and your budget.

A complete web design and development project – include branding, design, research, development, marketing – typically starts at £10K ($12K USD). I’d provide an outline of pricing as soon as we have more information.
