The purpose of our website designer service is to simplify your digital frustrations and solve the challenges you face to help increase your customer base, income and progressively grow your business.
We have designed and built hundreds of bespoke websites over the years, each one varying in requirements and features. Of these hundreds of businesses that have benefited from our website designer services, the majority of these reside in London and the South East.
We are well placed to serve London and the South East and can easily meet clients at our London office in Holborn Viaduct or in the South East area. However, we have existing, happy clients from various areas within the UK and are always available to contact via the phone or video call if an in-person meeting with a member of our website designer team is difficult to arrange.
Juggling everything surrounding your business can be a tiresome and taxing task. For those with the need of a large website, or those who are not so website savvy, our website designer team can take this burden away from you and deliver expertise that return a digital presence that reflects the potential of your business.
We remove the everyday digital challenges that frustrate business owners and marketing managers. How? By making digital simple for you so that it always helps, rather than hinders, your business.
We ensure our web design service will always be simple to buy, simple to use, simple to change and simple to extend.
Websites are complex and there is a lot of room for error. From design to build to delivery, each stage needs to be correct for the site to become a success. You may find some of these problems sound familiar?:
How would you like website designers to...
No one knows your business better than you and in order to ensure the success of your project, we keep you involved every step of the way.
We deliver an initial consultation where everything is up for discussion. This helps get your project off to the best possible start and begin building the strong rapport between our website designer team and yourselves through listening to your expectations and needs. Our website designers then map out the rest of the project based on what you say.
Our process is: Planning it Right. Designing it Right. Building it Right. But how do we do that exactly?...
We produce sitemaps and wireframes to work out where all the important pages need to be and where elements sit in the page. We make sure you have enough pagetypes to grow the site in the future with minimal development work from us. We may even explore the user journey for your target audiences to make sure they can all find what they want quickly
Once you’ve approved the sitemap and wireframes, you can move onto the design stage, this is where we’ll add your branding (logo/graphics images/colour scheme). At this stage additional content may also be required and we can work with you to ensure this resonates with your audience.
This is where we do the coding and the website moves into being interactive. Normally building the home page first and getting your approval before moving onto the next pages. Everything receives a thorough test to make sure it works across all devices and at all screen sizes.
These are the basic parts of the process, of course there may be much more to larger projects such as user research, copywriting, or interactive prototypes.
Once these stages are complete and we have your approval, we move onto the testing stage of our web design service where we use a range of browsers and devices and our website testing software. Then we are set for launching the new website in all it’s glory when you are ready to go live.
This ongoing communication drives the success of our projects, keeps our clients on our books and returning for future collaborations. To learn more, see what our clients have to say or read up on our approach.

As experienced website designers, we love technology and seeing how it evolves to help improve the services we can offer our clients. We strive to design and build you an excellent website, designed to work hard for your business or organisation and a joy for you to work with.
Our platform of choice is ConcreteCMS because it is a cutting-edge Content Management System (CMS) with up to date code, running on very recent versions of PHP which provide the foundations for robust longevity. Therefore, you can get many years out of the website, making it a more than worthwhile investment.
Our website designers create websites to look modern and to stand the test of time well, using the screen space well, mobile friendly and with excellent accessibility.
You may have ideas for "phase 2" or "phase 3" after the initial build and almost anything is possible with a quality bespoke website build. You won't be hitting any walls like you can with website builders and may want to view this comparison:Why go for a bespoke website rather than using a website builder?
Marketing your business, and your website in particular, is crucial to achieving success via growing your audience and visitor numbers to the site. We ensure our clients websites are created with marketing friendly foundations that allow your web content all across the site to flourish when supported by an adequate marketing budget.
Our website designer services come in conjunction with SEO, search engine optimisation, if desired or alternatively provided as an additional marketing service to those who are happy with their website but want to boost their organic traffic. The ultimate aim of SEO is to increase the quantity and quality of organic traffic to your website, in turn increasing leads, conversions and sales.
How do the websites that we design and build successfully help with SEO marketing?
Google will crawl and index every aspect of your website that is open to do so. A well designed and thought-out website makes it easier for Google and other search engines to understand the content present. They want to return the highest quality results to their users – this includes the content and the general health of the website. Search engines do not favour websites that are full of errors, often hindering the ranking potential of multiple pages. Hence, our website designers deliver an end product that is assembled to provide strong technical SEO throughout.
We recently measured our client retention rate over five years and are proud to report that we kept 94% of our clients on board during that time!*
Some website designers are not so reliable sadly and can disappear without warning. We enjoy building relationships with our clients and look forward to developing many more in the future.
We don’t just love technology, we love people too and enjoy seeing how the right solutions make our clients (and their clients) happy!

Having never had the responsibility of creating a new website for the business before, Made Simple Media could not have made it a more easier and pleasurable experience. From the initial meeting to the end product, we could not have been happier. Made Simple Media quickly grasped what we were looking to achieve in both design style and function.
We commissioned David at Made Simple Media to build our website for About Mortgages. David was responsive, incredibly patient, on budget and provided a great finished product that we're delighted with.
Paul, About Mortgages
Dave was so patient and understanding when it came to explaining the process and how things work. I highly recommend MSM to anyone who needs that extra help understanding the fundamentals of website building.

I honestly could not of fell on my feet more with made simple media. Everything I asked for has been done, simplifying things i was unsure about and basically made what I had in my head become a reality. A big thing for me is the availability of being able to get in touch when needed to and this was no issue what so ever. I can’t thank you enough Dave
