Hi, I’m Marion

Specialising in WordPress, I provide end-to-end web design services – from concept to creation, testing, launch and ongoing maintenance.

About me

Journey

I’m based in London, UK. My web design journey began in 2002 with personal creative projects that turned into a passion. Just before the pandemic, I finally took the plunge and launched my own freelance web design business.

Skills & learning

I’ve crafted websites using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript but now specialise in WordPress, which lets me create beautiful, creative and functional sites. I continually refine my skills through hands-on experience and ongoing studies. My commitment to lifelong learning ensures you get the latest in web design!

Process

When we work together, it’s a collaboration. Using proven design and project management processes, I ensure your website is expertly planned, designed, tested and implemented. Your feedback guides each step, and I’m here to listen. Let’s create something beautiful together!

Services

New website design

I specialise in designing completely new websites that are user-friendly, SEO-optimised, fast, and responsive. With a custom design adapted to your needs, I create websites that reflect your unique identity. My expertise lies in working with WordPress, but I’m open to other platforms to suit your specific requirements.

Whether you’re in need of small, medium or larger-scale websites, I’m here to provide a tailored approach that aligns with your objectives.

Existing site refresh

If your older site needs revitalisation, I offer comprehensive services to breathe new life into your online presence. My modern redesign approach focuses on creating an aesthetically pleasing, responsive, and user-friendly interface that aligns with current industry standards.

I recognise that not all sites need a full overhaul. If smaller improvements are more relevant to your needs, I’m here to offer tailored assistance that addresses specific areas of concern.

Ongoing maintenance

Regular maintenance is essential to keep your website up-to-date, secure, and running smoothly. This includes keeping both the site and its elements current with the latest updates, ensuring robust security measures to protect against hackers and malware.

In addition, I offer support with domain and hosting needs. This complete package ensures that every aspect of your web presence is managed efficiently and professionally, leaving you free to focus on what you do best.

Content support

I offer comprehensive and tailored content support to meet your specific needs, on an ad-hoc or ongoing basis. My services span the entire content lifecycle, including ideation, writing, proofreading, editing, and providing guidance on content planning and SEO.

Whether you require engaging blog articles, informative static content, or step-by-step how-to guides, I’m here to deliver quality and consistency that resonates with your audience, and aligns with your brand’s goals and vision.

Latest work

I worked with two university research labs to design, build, and launch their websites in order to build a more visible online presence and brand. Both include technical maintenance and ongoing content work.

1. Discovery

We'll lay a solid foundation for the project. I'll work with you to understand your requirements, and I'll do some research. We'll form a clear and detailed plan, allowing me to craft a website that's not only visually appealing but also functionally effective and aligned with your unique needs and objectives.

2. Design

In the design phase, I create wireframes and prototypes to lay out the site's structure. I craft engaging visuals that include colors, typography, and images. This all comes together in a vibrant blend of creativity and functionality, turning your brand's personality into a visually stunning and user-friendly experience.

3. Development

I'll sort out hosting space and the domain name if needed. From there, I'll use WordPress or other solutions that suit your specific needs, to build the site. The design is transformed into a real website through a collaborative process, where your feedback and vision are integral.

4. Testing

I'll fine-tune your site and ensure that every element functions flawlessly. I examine the site across various browsers and devices, guaranteeing a consistent experience for all users. It's a critical stage where I make sure that everything aligns perfectly with your expectations, creating a seamless digital journey for your audience.

5. Launch

The thrilling culmination of all our hard work and collaboration! We're now ready to unveil your website to the world! After some final checks, once everything is in place, your website goes live and becomes accessible to users everywhere. It's a celebratory moment where your original vision becomes a live digital experience!

6. Maintenance

Launching your website is just the beginning! Your site needs regular updates, upgrades and monitoring to keep it secure, protected and up-to-date. If you'd prefer to focus on your business day-to-day rather than technical website maintenance, I'm here to help. 😊
