Freelance Web Designer

I am a full-time creative freelance web designer and developer based near Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I cover all local areas including Ripon, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Skipton, Thirsk, Northallerton and everywhere else in between.

I specialise in producing high quality content managed websites which my clients can easily manage themselves via an online administration area. My focus is to help my clients grow their businesses through effective web design and development. I work mainly with small to medium sized businesses.

Responsive Web Design

I specialise in responsive web design so if you’re thinking of a new website or a redesign of an existing website then please give me a call or let me know your requirements/ideas through my contact form here. Over 60% of websites are now viewed on either smartphone or tablet so making sure a website is responsive has become increasingly important.

We have been delighted with the services provided by Rachel. Having used other companies over the years to create & maintain our website, we can confirm that Rachel has provided a refreshingly excellent level of service in terms of creativeness, efficiency & professionalism. We cannot recommend the company more highly.

Just a quick thank you for designing and getting both my websites live. I can’t thank you enough for the help and guidance you’ve given to me after they went live, and the quick replies you sent me to my (many) questions. I really love the new designs, and the ease of navigating through them has made it so much easier for all of my customers. I’ve had no hesitation in recommending you to everyone seeking a friendly and professional web designer. I look forward to our future dealings.

Rachel has been a lifesaver. Having helped me out of a crisis in the form of a hacked website, she redesigned one of our other websites exactly to our specifications. Her service was pragmatic and very reasonably priced. She worked quickly, went over and above the call of duty, and in a demonstration of admirable technical know-how managed to overcome server-side incompatibilities.

Rachel has been immensely helpful to us here at GFTS. She has designed and produced a streamlined and professional website, with a variety of useful plugins such as a Live-Chat feature and Social media integration. We really cannot thank her enough for her continued efforts in helping us to modernise and improve our online presence, and ensuring our email systems remain working at peak efficiency and with minimal interruptions to service.
