Bespoke responsive north east web design & development.

Web Designer & Developer

Based in the North East, for over 22 years, I’ve been providing quality web design solutions for all business sizes, from start-up companies to large international corporates, both B2B & B2C including high street brands including Deloitte, SCS Sofas, Dulux, AEG, The Co-Op, Ryobi Tools & One+, EveryMan Racing, Padders Shoes, and Team Lotus F1; being involved web design and web development, web sites, content management systems, eCommerce web design & development and search engine optimisation.

My portfolio speaks for itself, with a diverse range of clients, from simple, clean brochure websites, highly complex database-driven websites and eCommerce applications. 90% of all my projects are ASP.NET, built on the back of the extremely capable Umbraco Content Management System or the nopCommerce eCommerce solution.

Lets Talk.

Although based in Co Durham, close to Newcastle upon Tyne up in the North East of the UK, as a north east web designer I am available for projects across the country and have worked with a varied array of clients & agencies from all over the UK and abroad.


What I do.

I know how to do all kinds of things.

Bespoke Websites

No themes, no templates here! All projects are designed from the ground up, specifically for a clients requirements.

Responsive Web Design

In this day an age, with so many different screen sizes, devices, it's essential that your website works across all of them. I build websites that respond/adapt across these different devices to deliver the optimum experience for your clients.

Web & UI Design

Web Design and Development for all types of digital projects, focusing on clean, engaging, consistency that achieves both simplicity and usability.


With over 22 years of experience in designing and developing eCommerce projects, I'm in the right place to tailor a solution specifically for your business and your customers.

CMS Development

I specialise in building websites with content management systems using Umbraco as the base - this gives me the ability to create bespoke designs without the constraints of 'off-the-shelf' systems.

App Development

With the sales of smartphones now surpassing the sales of PCs, and traditional mobile phones, mobile 'apps' are now the norm. I use Xamarin Studio to enable native iOS or Android App Development in C#. 

My Work.

Trust, Clarity Commitment

Three core elements

My three core elements that have helped both my clients and my own success over the past 22+ years.



From your initial contact, through to delivering your project, I understand how much trust is involved.

Gaining your trust is not something I take lightly, and I want to ensure that throughout the project, your expectations are consistently met.



As a professional web designer & developer, I adopt an informed, honest, but above all accessible approach to my work and will never blind you with jargon or attempt to represent the concepts involved as some kind of rocket science or black art.

The fundamentals and the tools at my disposal are clearly explained to you and I will discuss in depth how best your business can benefit from a professionally designed website.



I'm committed to delivering the best possible results required for the success of your project, right from the start, through the development and the final delivery.

Let's have a chat about how I can help your brand stand out and succeed.


My clients love the work I produce

After having 3 full website rebuilds in the space of 4 years from different web design agencies which produced disappointing end results and bad service we knew we had to change the type of company we wanted to attempt our next build. We decided to look for a local designer / developer who we hoped could offer everything we ‘thought’ we needed but also suggest ideas beyond our brief and at the same time give advice how to design a better website, that is when we found Craig.

Needless to say the initial brief for Craig wasn’t an easy one as we were looking to re-launch 13 Football Club Online Stores at the same time, all running off one application. However it must have been fate that we were to find Craig for this project as the platform that he uses to build eCommerce sites had just added this functionality and Craig didn’t shy away from the scale of the task. Working closely with Craig and following his guidance we were able to create our own bespoke theme, which for the first time for us was fully responsive for easy tablet and mobile viewing and each theme could be adjusted for each individual store. Craig also solved many issues where the default system couldn’t accommodate our end goal. By the time we came to launch the sites we had a system in place that far surpassed anything we previously had.

That was 7 years ago, since then the sites have continually been upgraded and themes refreshed with new functions added along the way, always striving to make the sites as good as they can be and keeping up with the fast pace changes and expectation of websites in the current digital era.
