Website design and developed by Miles Essex

My services

I specialise in website design, build and year-round website management for artists, musicians and photographers.

My process

After discussing your requirements I will prepare an estimate for you. To assist me it is helpful to have the following information:

  • An outline of the structure of your site – a simple bulleted list will suffice
  • Any special functionality you require, like a complex form or additional language
  • Do you have existing branding and/or brand assets?
  • A sense of the style of site you have in mind – it’s useful to see examples of sites you like (and don’t)
  • Do you have existing hosting and prefer to keep it?
  • Have you consulted an SEO specialist? It is a good idea to do so prior to embarking on a new website build if ranking highly on search engines is important to you

How long will it take?

If I have all the content required to complete the site this can be done within a week. An average site takes 4-6 weeks.

A typical project-flow is then as follows:

1 Design

I will take all the information I’ve gathered from you and create visuals for you to review. We’ll work through a revision process until you are completely satisfied with the design.

2 Coding

I will code the website in a development environment, following the approved visuals closely.

3 Content

I usually input your initial content and if you wish to make alterations you will have access to a website admin area to make amendments.

4 Launch

With the final content in place and your approval I will launch the new site.

5 Ongoing support

After your site goes live I am available to assist you with year-round support, making sure the site is kept secure and content is updated as required.
