Who is McGrath Web Design? In a nutshell, it’s me!
Working as a freelance web designer, I create affordable, high-quality websites to small and medium-sized businesses. The benefit of working with me is you receive a service tailored to your business and communicate entirely with me. That way, we can achieve the website your business needs
I didn’t find web design. Web design found me! But where did it all begin?
I grew up in the beautiful county of Somerset, a stone’s throw from the famous town of Glastonbury. I met my husband in the fine establishment of The Garrick Pub, in Urmston and have lived here for over 20 years.
I love this area and can’t imagine being anywhere else than this friendly corner of this beautiful, vibrant city
Why web design?
My experience of 20 years at the chalkface in secondary teaching means I am a master multi-tasker, respond positively to challenges, and am never tardy! Spending so many hours a day with so many different people also means I am very personable and easy to talk to.
I began my web design business after leaving teaching three years ago. I use WordPress to create my websites. It offers so much variety and also provides an easy-to-learn Content Management System for my clients.
Once I have created a website, I also offer tuition in managing the website yourself. If you want to that is! I am also on hand with any editing or tweaks as your business grows and develops.
My goal is to create the website my client wants and their business needs. Each website is different and for me, this is a huge part of why I love this career. From hair salons to welding companies, to drain specialists, to arts and crafts small businesses, no two projects are the same. Take a look at my portfolio to see. I enjoy meeting my clients and finding out what makes their business special and what specifically they offer their customers.
I take pride in offering a high-quality service and producing a website that looks beautiful, is easy to navigate and professional.
So what can I offer you?
As a freelance web designer, I create beautiful websites using WordPress. The benefit of a WordPress website is the access you, as a client have after the build, to edit your own site. If you want to! I am also very happy to be your first port of call for edits and updates.
My goal is to build you an attractive, fast, secure, fully responsive, user-friendly website. I take pride in creating professional websites, but not breaking the bank. Previous clients comment that my sites are professional yet great value.
A great website concisely answers the questions your customers might have. It needs to inform and educate. It needs to instill confidence in the customers. I spend time getting to know you and your vision and build the site you need, which will attract new customers and keep them there.
I keep you informed throughout the design process and value your feedback.
