👋 Hey there,
I'm Matt Blake.

I'm an Isle of Wight web designer. I've been a web designer with WordPress for over 12 years.

Say Hello

About me

I've been designing and maintaining WordPress websites since 2009. What started out as a service for family and friends quickly grow into a business that I've run for over 12 years. My wife and I love life on the Isle of Wight and are so grateful to be living a stone's throw from Totland Bay West Wight.

After working together

  • Customers will trust your website. A professional and modern design will build trust with your website's visitors.
  • Connect with more customers. A well built website that loads quickly will reduce the frustration customers feel when they browse your website.
  • Mobile friendly web design. Every year mobile web browsing increases. Your new website will respond automatically to different screen sizes.
  • Strategic contact & structure. Your website's content doesn't only effect the viewing experience for potential customers. The layout and code effect loading time and SEO (search engine optimisation).

Painless process

  1. Discovery Call - We share a video call to find out all about your business and goals for the future. We'll discuss the psychology behind web design that converts visitors into new customers and clients. Afterwards you'll receive a content collection document guiding you through writing and structuring your website's content.
  2. Gathering Content - Your bespoke document will help you structure your content and write in a style proven to engage with visitors and have a positive SEO impact.
  3. Design & feedback - It starts with your website's homepage. Submit your feedback to guide designing the rest of your website including headers, footers, individual pages and blog posts.
  4. Launch - Once you've approved the completed design your website will be launched by connecting your domain name and submitting your website to Google for indexing.

During the project you can expect

  • Regular and detailed updates, keeping you in the loop as progress is made.
  • Experienced leadership through the project to explain all the design choices and how they will benefit your business.

  • Matt and I go back a long way. He from the start embraced the challenge of supporting me when I built with his help two websites for two very different avenues of work, and neither had he done before. He was professional, understanding and very supportive from the get-go and certainly showed his expertise in his field. I am very happy he is on my team.
