A website that's as unique as you are
We specialise in modern, user-friendly websites for local and national businesses.
Your website is an integral part of your business and acts as an advertising and communication platform. That’s why we work hard to make sure that your website not only looks good, but also performs well in Search Engines and has all the features you need to market your brand.
Our web design packages are competitively priced with a fast turnaround time.

WordPress is a powerful web design platform and Content Management System (CMS) which powers 30% of all websites on the web. We use it because it’s so user-friendly for our clients and offers the freedom for us to design the website without limitations. Unlike do-it-yourself website builders (Squarespace, Wix), the possibilities for what we can build for you are endless, and we can implement a number of complex features and functions that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get.
Of course – we design our websites to make them as user-friendly as possible. We create a custom admin area for you so that you’re greeted with everything you need to manage your site as soon as you login. You’ll also have access to our extensive online guides which show you how to edit your site.
Once you’ve decided to go ahead, we’ll send you an invoice for a 50% deposit upfront. Once the website is complete, you’ll receive another invoice for the remaining balance.
Payment can be made via BACS (preferred), PayPal or cheque.
We are not VAT registered (one of the benefits of hiring us rather than a large agency!) so the price you see is the price you pay.
At the end of the project, we supply you with access to our online documentation which details how to edit your website so that you can update the website yourself. You will also receive one month’s free Bronze Membership, which grants you 2 hours of design time to help support you whilst you’re learning the ropes.
After this time, any further updates, amendments or changes to the site will be charged at our hourly rate of £20ph, or you can become a full CRJ Design Member for ongoing updates and support.
Although of course if you have any quick questions, we’re just an email away!
It’s really important that your web hosting meets our standards, otherwise you risk having a slow or unreliable website. We offer our own affordable hosting for just £4/month or £44/year which is lightning fast and has a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
For third party hosting providers, our standards include: a valid SSL certificate, unlimited/unmetered bandwidth, high resources (1GB RAM, 1 CPU, 25 EntryProcesses, 8 mb/s I/O), adequate storage. Large, powerful, resource-heavy websites may require higher standards and resources. We cannot guarantee the speed or reliability of your website when it is hosted by a third party.
Usually, we can get started on a new project within 2 weeks (sometimes sooner), so please bear this in mind if you have a tight deadline. We’ll give you an estimated start date when you book in.
This depends entirely on the size of the project, how many alterations are needed, the speed of communications etc. Usually we aim for a website to be finished within 4 weeks of the start date. You’ll receive an estimated completion date when you book in.
No! We work with people all over the UK and we even have clients in the US.
Following an initial consultation with you, we’ll send over a questionnaire for you to fill in, letting us know what pages and features you need, your target audience, and your aims.
We will also send over a checklist of items we need before we get started, including your logo/branding, all written content, any photos/graphics/videos to be used, and all information required to set up your online shop or booking system (if applicable).
You will also need to register your domain name and set up web hosting (you can host with us for £4/month).
During the design process, you get three opportunities to provide your feedback and request changes. Each round of requested alterations is classed as a revision. Three revisions is usually plenty, but if you need further alterations or changes, we can carry these out for you and extra charges will apply.
An initial design is a unique first draft, based on your requirements and response to our questionnaire. When we design your website, the first draft we send you is the initial design. You can request changes to this design (see revisions above), but drastically re-designing the website in its entirety will be classed as a new initial design.

Are you finding it difficult to update your website because of a complex CMS system? Are you using a website builder such as Squarespace or Wix and you’re paying too much every month? Consider moving your website to WordPress and enjoy a user-friendly interface, no high monthly fees (see below), and advanced capabilities.
WordPress is totally free to use, you just need to pay for web hosting at around £4/month depending on your provider. It’s a much more affordable alternative to website builders in the long run.
We’re able to re-build your entire website in WordPress, matching the current design/layout and copying all content across. Any functionalities you have, such as an online shop, booking system, portfolio etc., can also be migrated into the WordPress platform.
* We can source images from free stock photo libraries and selected premium libraries for free, but stock photos sourced from premium galleries which aren’t included in our service will need to be paid for additionally.
** Whilst the ecommerce software won’t take a commission, please note that payments taken online with PayPal, Stripe or other vendors will usually incur a fee.
