About Rugby Web Design

About the business, plus a little about myself too

I aim to bridge the gap between a do-it-yourself website and a premium digital agency.

Market positioning

I aim to bridge the gap between a do-it-yourself website and a premium digital agency.

If you go down the DIY website route, you'll spend a lot of time producing a website which ranks poorly in searches and also suffers from poor conversion rates.

You'll quickly discover you need a professional website!

However, the fees charged by established agencies can be eye-watering for smaller businesses. My professional web design service is considerably more affordable, yet I pride myself on providing the same quality and service.

So how do I do this?

  • Building using the 'code-code' Webflow platform dramatically reduces project build times.
  • I can design and develop the website, removing the need to hire expensive 'coders' to turn static visual ideas into a responsive website.
  • I work from my home office, so I enjoy much lower overheads than a larger, office-based agency.

My career

Throughout my career, I have been involved in art and graphic design, working with a variety of mediums.

I began my working life in the artwork department at a print/publishing company. Whilst working there, I gained qualifications at the Berkshire College of Art & Design.

Following the closure of the company, I took a new 'temporary' direction in the pub trade. My skills were quickly put to use as a freelance blackboard artist. Initially, I produced artistic chalk menus and info boards, which developed into traditional hand painting signage for pubs and shops.

Over time, I began running my own pub/restaurant, and it was during this time I saw the internet's early development. Realising new opportunities, I built my pub's website and soon had my regulars requesting me to make them a website for their businesses.

I left the licensed trade in 2009 and began improving my web design skills as a part-time 'hobby' business. Fast forward to today, and I'm trading as a Limited company, working full-time from my home office.

My interests

Although my other-half insists I'm addicted to technology, at heart, I'm a bit of an old fuddy-duddy, with a love of real ales and the bygone age of steam railways.

I used to play the guitar in a number of live bands, and whilst my 'gigging days' are long over, I still enjoy playing my guitars at home.

Thanks for reading this page. My apologies, as that's two minutes of your life, you'll never get back!

"Graham was very responsive from the start, making it very easy to work with him on the project. Our ideas were taken on board and implemented perfectly into the site. Questions and queries were always answered very promptly - often well outside the normal working hours we'd expect a response in. We wouldn't hesitate to use Rugby Web Design again or recommend to other businesses."

"Absolutely fantastic. My old holiday property website was outdated and did not support modern devices. Graham set to work to build a new site that totally suited my needs, coming up with an amazing, innovative prototype. I loved his ideas and he really knows how to highlight and sell the property in the best possible way. The end product is fantastic. I simply cannot recommend Graham highly enough".

"Graham couldn’t have been more helpful, nothing is too much trouble. He is professional, efficient, knowledgeable and extremely patient. Once the website was complete Graham also did a fantastic job on marketing materials such as an advert, banners, flyers and leaflet folder. He is quite a find and we look forward to a long working relationship."

"Simply amazing!! Graham created a professional, modern website in less than a week! Graham got the concept straight away and I was able to see the site being built live. Once built, editing it through Webflow is extremely easy too (as it feels like you're looking at the actual site). You won't get better quality, value, or service anywhere else - this guy is incredible."

"Graham positions RWD as a bridge between DIY websites and more pricey premium digital agencies. This is exactly what I was looking for when searching for a website for my small (and growing) business. It was completed within a fortnight, with Graham providing a highly responsive service, offering good, practical suggestions and attractive design. I would very much recommend RWD to other growing SMEs looking for a more professional digital profile."

"Graham is absolutely amazing at what he does and you can tell that this is also his passion. The website was completed within a week. Most companies will take at least 6 weeks, so this combined with his super quick replies have been very well received. Graham's attention to detail and interpersonal skills have made me a very happy customer. Go with Graham, you will not be disappointed.
