Hello, and welcome. My name is Benjamin and I am a professional freelance website designer. I specialise in creating beautiful and functional website designs and support: individuals, businesses and organisations with their website design needs.
If you’re looking for a reliable, professional website design studio, and you need the confidence that your project will be done on time, on budget and delivered to a high standard, then look no further.
Some common questions asked by potential website design clients:
Do you charge by the hour?
I can, but I tend to work on fixed costs. Hourly rates can be charged with an agreement in place. My hourly rate is $60.00.
Will you work on site?
Currently I’m working from my home office. This is to ensure I am available for all clients as and when they need me during the working week.
What hours do you normally work?
I work Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:30pm so you can be sure that I am always available during normal office hours.
Can we hire you for set days each week and month?
Yes, you can. You can pay me a fixed retainer to book certain days out for every week and month. Retainers are booked out in 3-month slots and payable upfront. Contact me for the latest prices.
What tools/software are you proficient in?
I have a vast amount of experience using all sorts of software, but my main day to day tools are WordPress and Photoshop.
Are you reliable?
Yes! I work all through the week under normal working hours and I always respond to emails usually within about 30 minutes. If I’m away for any length of time, I usually let my clients know if they have current project work with me. All projects I have undertaken have always been delivered on time. Please see some of the feedback I have received Google My Business pages (over 50 5 star reviews)
Will you work under NDA?
Yes of course. I am happy to sign your NDA, or just simply request that I keep your work private and I will always honour privacy when requested.
Do you ever offer discounts?
If you’re a registered charity I usually provide a 15% discount. I also provide discounts for bulk projects, but those are calculated on a cost per cost basis. Contact me if you would like more detail on this.
