I’ve been working as a web designer in and around Sheffield for the last 9 years. I have experience working for larger organisations where I learnt about running a design businesses. I now work for myself with the support of a small team of specialists; a backend and server developer, two front-end developers and a copywriter. Although I produce all the design work I occasionally involve freelancers to work on the development of larger projects.
MY CAREER (DIGITAL DESIGNER)
After I completed a Design BA at Loughborough University I started my career teaching Design at a sixth-form college. After five years of teaching I decided to get get some industry experience and worked for two reputable design firms in Sheffield. During this time I was fortunate to work on large projects for some leading outdoor brands such as Deuter, Sea To Summit and Scarpa. I spent four years working for these design agencies and then decided to take the step and set my own business up.
I pride myself in offering the same level of service as an agency but without excessive overheads I can afford to be more competitive with my quotes, I offer completely transparent pricing. The sites I design are built to the same high standards using reliable, scalable platforms. I offer a personable service and invite my clients to pick-up the phone or drop by whenever necessary.
No project or budget is too small – all my services can be tailored to suit your requirements due to my flexible working practice. All my work is bespoke for you with a focus on clean, concise code conforming to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to ensure fast loading speeds and search engine optimisation.
All my sites are fully tested upon completion and won’t be ‘put live’ until you’re happy.
I offer full hosting on a UK based dedicated server and can take full management responsibility should you wish so. 90% of my current clients opt in for full support and hosting once their design work is complete but there is no obligation.

"I’ve always admired Andrew’s work so when I had a rebrand project come up I basically dumped everything on him. I was not disappointed with the results! He was very patient with my endless tweaking and I’m extremely happy with my new logo and website. The price was fair and he definitely helped me with a wide range of things that he didn’t need to. Very responsive and quick. On top of all that, when we met face to face- turns out he’s a really nice guy - bonus!"
