We’ve worked with Red Website Design for several years now and have been delighted with their services. They are highly professional and respond extremely quickly and efficiently to any requests I make.
I wanted to say a big thanks to Mark and his team at Red Website Design for their outstanding work in supporting our businesses. Mark and his team have designed and created all our websites.
They are very accessible and a cost effective solution. I have had several colleagues and associates compliment the professionalism of our websites. I highly recommend Red Website Design for their high quality work.
The team at RWD are so helpful and patient. They are always super responsive and are always on hand to help with my website. I love that they can deal with the ongoing managing, updating and editing as much or as little as I need.
I am not the most website savvy person but that wasn’t an issue for them when designing my website. Mark managed to make the whole process straightforward and engaging. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
This is the second website Mark and his team have done for us. I’m so pleased with how easy and straight forward the communication was. They delivered in all aspects from the design to the final product.
Nothing was too much trouble and they were very quick to make any amendments needed. Definitely a 5 star service from Mark & Matt. Thank you guys!

Questions to ask a web designer
Choosing a web designer can be a tough decision, especially when there are so many to choose from. The aim of this guide is to help you to ask the right questions so that you can be confident in your choice and to help you avoid making costly mistakes.
This seems an obvious thing to ask a potential web designer but you need to make sure you know what is included in your quote to avoid any nasty surprises. Ask the designer to detail exactly what is included IN WRITING.
Things to consider would be:
Does it include bespoke design?
Does it include a Content Management System (CMS)?
Does it include making changes if you don’t like the initial draft?
Does it include the registration of a domain?
Will the domain be registered to you?
Does it include web hosting?
Does it include ongoing support?
Does it include search engine optimisation?
If any of these services aren’t included find out how much they are!
A web designer doesn’t have to be local to you but it’s usually beneficial to have someone who is based in the same country. Different working hours could cause delays and can be frustrating if there’s a problem with your site.
Generally speaking, the size of the company provides you with NO indication of the quality of work they can produce. There are a lot of freelance web designers who can produce far superior work to larger web design companies.
Don’t let your preconceptions about the size of a company get in the way of the facts.
Any web design project requires some input from the site owner. You know your business better than anyone and should have an idea of the image you want your website to portray. It’s important that you get this information over to your web designer and that they understand it fully.
Here are some questions you could ask:
Can I show you some websites I like the look of?
Can you provide text and images or do I need to provide it?
We won’t flog you a template, we’ll create something unique that makes you stand out from your competition.
You can request as many revisions to your website as you like, you won’t go live until you are 100% happy with it.
Your site will respond to the device being used, providing a first-class mobile browsing experience for your visitors.
You can edit your content any time you like using the free WordPress content management system.
We can include contact forms, email signups, maps, image and video galleries, social media integration and more.
We can install Google Analytics so that you can track visitor stats and monitor the success of your marketing efforts.
If you haven’t already registered your domain we can provide that for you, or you can use your own if already setup.
There’s nothing more frustrating than a slow website. We provide fast hosting to keep your visitors happy.
We provide 5 email addresses free of charge. Access them via webmail, Outlook or your Smartphone.
