“I can not recommend Anne highly enough”

I can not recommend Anne highly enough. If it wasn’t for her we wouldn’t have been able to trade during the pandemic. Within a day we had a full stock list on the website for deliveries. Then she was able to build an online appointment system that has worked amazingly and kept a steady stream into our garden centre so social distancing was easy. Afford Web Design is a fantastic business and Anne is amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions

For websites, the web designer’s role is to create visual designs while the front-end developer is responsible for turning these designs into interactive and user-friendly websites. With years of experience and expertise in both web design and front-end development, I can offer businesses insights and solutions to bridge the gap between design and development.

I’ve been working as a web designer for many years, collaborating in person and remotely with businesses of varying sizes and industries including local clients near me in Suffolk as well as people further afield. I am comfortable communicating through various channels, whether face-to-face, email, phone, and Zoom, depending on your preference.

Choosing a freelance web designer and front end developer over an agency can be a smart decision, as it often results in top-quality websites and a more personalized service, all while offering great value for money.

I provide custom WordPress web design for small business. From custom website designs with custom development to WordPress updates and WordPress migration services.

When it comes to hiring a web designer, rates can vary widely depending on factors such as experience, efficiency and time scale, with quality freelancers in the UK typically charging a minimum of £50 per hour. As a general ballpark figure, custom brochure websites are from £1500, while ecommerce websites may start at £2500 or more. My hourly rate is £50 per hour.

Before starting on a new project I will always provide a quote on cost to complete the design within the parameters provided. At the start I would ask you to outline what you want to achieve and any special features.

The duration of a website project is typically 4 to 5 weeks, but depends on the size and complexity of the project influencing the timeline as well as how quickly the customer provides their information and feedback.

When compared to agencies, hiring a freelance web designer can be cost-effective due to lower hourly rates, greater flexibility, and a more personalized experience with a single point of contact.
