Hi, I'm Issy

I'm a freelance web developer and web designer based in Bristol.

Responsive, speedy websites make me happy. I'm a big fan of the JAMstack and like working with React, GatsbyJS and Netlify.
Whether you're looking for a simple but effective website for your small business or a fast e-commerce solution I'd love to help. I'm a Bristol-based web developer but I can work with anyone, anywhere.
Get in touch to have a no-obligation chat about your requirements!

THE PROCESS

Hiring someone to create your website can be daunting and even a little confusing at first. Exactly what is involved in your own project will vary (and will be clearly set out before we begin) but here is an overview to give you an idea.

  • 1.

    Meet up

    Every project starts with a no-obligation meet up to discuss your requirements. This can be in person if you're local or via Skype. We will talk about design ideas, the type of site you want, whether you need to be able to make changes to the content yourself and much more!

  • 2.

    Transparent Pricing

    Once I understand what your project entails I will produce a quote for the work. I don't charge on an hourly basis, I provide a fixed price based on the requirements. This price will only change if the scope of the project changes - and with your prior agreement of course!

  • 3.

    Design Phase

    Usually, the next step will be all about the design. I produce a website design for you using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe XD and you get a chance to review it and make some comments. Once the design is finalised we will progress onto the next step.

  • 4.

    Development Phase

    With the design confirmed I will start to code up the website. When complete I will send you a live demo to have a play with so that you can get a real feel for your new website.

  • 5.

    Getting the site live

    The final step involves getting your website hosted and accessible at your domain name. If your website is set up with a CMS (content management system) I will show you how to use it. Once the project is complete I'm always available if you have any questions or would like to discuss making additions/alterations in the future.

THE TECHNICAL STUFF

The web is constantly evolving, and the technologies available to create websites have developed phenomenally in recent years.

My preferred technologies are part of the 'JAMSTACK' and include React, GatsbyJS, Netlify and the use of a headless CMS. This combination is perfect for making a 'brochure' type website for a small business but also lends itself to e-commerce. I love discovering new technologies so if you have something in particular in mind for your website, don't be afraid to ask.

I should mention... I'm not a Wordpress developer. Although it can be a great tool, Wordpress can be clunky, slow, insecure and expensive to host. I believe that there are much better alternatives and prefer to use these to create the best possible user experience.
