Freelance Web Designer / Developer

Hi, I’m Joe Daniels. I’m a web designer and developer based in Nottingham. I have over 6 years experience in designing fully bespoke, responsive, high-performance websites using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

What I do

I create websites. More specifically, I do all the design work and then bring the designs to life through coding.

I focus on building websites that load incredibly fast, without sacrificing visually stunning design.

Bespoke Design

I never use templates or themes when creating websites.

Every project I work on is designed from scratch, resulting in a truly unique and bespoke design.

Other freelancers and web design companies often use themes. They change the colours around a bit and charge you thousands for something worth hundreds. The result isn’t a website tailored around your brand, but a dull, overpriced site that will do more harm than good.

Responsive Web Design

Mobile web browsing has taken over desktop browsing in recent years, making it more important than ever to have a website that looks and performs great across all devices.

Responsive web design produces websites that are fluid and adapt to the size of whatever device the user is using.

Every website I create has a basic requirement of being responsive.

I simply will not make a website that isn’t responsive.

Search Engine Optimisation

Having a great looking website is only half the battle for a successful website. The other half, and arguably just as important, is SEO.

I carry out On-Page optimisation for all my projects. This helps my clients rank better in Google, increasing leads and conversions.

Increased Conversion Rate

A crappy web design = a lower conversion rate.

I help my clients achieve higher conversion rates through an improved user experience.

A big part of what I focus on to achieve a good user experience is loading time.

The faster a website loads, the better the experience for the user (notice how quickly this site loads?). A slow site will cause your potential customers to lose patience and leave to find a better site.

To add to this, it takes just 0.05 seconds for users to form an opinion of your site. If your design isn’t up to scratch, you’ll lose their interest even quicker.

WordPress: Your Saviour

I am a fan of using WordPress because it makes updating and adding content at a later date much easier.

This is especially true for clients who may not have an understanding of HTML, or web development in general.

Once I finish a website the client can make small changes to content as easily as editing a Facebook post, without needing me to fiddle around with code.
