Simon O'Donovan – Web Developer

Creative web designer and developer with 10+ years experience. I'll help you create a stunning website that's as unique as your writing. ✨

Overview


As an experienced web designer and marketing manager, I know how important it is to have a visually stunning, user-friendly online presence that represents your unique brand. Whether you're a first-time author or a seasoned pro, I can help you create a website that showcases your work and engages your readers.

With a keen eye for design and a deep understanding of user experience, I'll work with you to craft a website that captures the essence of your writing style and personality. I have more than ten years experience building WordPress websites that look great and are easy for clients to update.

At every step of the process, I prioritise clear communication, transparency, and collaboration. I believe that the best websites are built through a partnership between the designer and the client, and I'm committed to working closely with you to achieve your vision and exceed your expectations.


Here's how I typically work;

Brainstorm & Plan:
We'll collaborate to create a unique plan for your website, including content, visual style, and animation.

Wireframes:
I'll produce wireframes and prototypes for key pages, showcasing the creative direction.

Design:
Once we're happy with the wireframes, I'll design all pages and create a digital style guide.

Development:
When the page designs are approved, I'll build the website using responsive templates that adapt to different screen sizes and can be using easily edited with WordPress.

Launch:
We'll do some testing to make sure everything looks the way we expect before we launch your brand new website. 🚀
