  • Michael Edwards is a rare breed of developer. He has an extremely good knowledge of web development – but coming from a graphic design background gives him an eye for detail that most other web developers lack. I have been working with Michael for a number of years now and have always found him to be knowledgeable, professional, efficient and helpful - he’s a decent straight talking chap and a pleasure to work with.
    Mike Leuty, Creative Director, The Pea Green Boat Design
  • I needed a website that was simple to use and easy to change information and pictures. Mike built me a website around the information which I provided, along with an ecommerce system. It was tailored to my needs and budget and there is plenty of room for expansion and to grow with the business. Mike has continued to provide good service and on-going support as required since 2008.

Here are the answers to the most frequent questions I get asked

Do you use Dreamweaver to build your sites?
No! All of the sites that I build (non-open source) are coded by hand. I have an expert knowledge of XHTML and so do not need a 3rd party program to write code for me. This means I know how the site is built, how the code is structured and where to go should any changes be required.
Can you work on any Content Managed System?
Although I specialise in Joomla!, I have a working knowledge on most Content Managed Systems as well as writing bespoke ones if required.
Are your sites compliant?
Yes, the websites I build leave me with full W3C compliancy. I test each site and show the site has passed to you before I hand it over.
Are you qualified?
Yes. I went to Croydon College of Art & Design in the late 1980’s for two years and got a National Diploma in graphic design. From there I went on to Barnet College of Art & Design where I completed a Higher National Diploma in graphic design with merit.
How long have you been building websites?
My first commercial job in web design was in 1994 and I have been developing and designing sites ever since.
Do you do work for people outside the UK?
I am very happy to work for clients around the world. I have clients in America and Europe at the moment.
Do you work for a company or design house on a freelance basis?
Yes. I can take on freelance work for you, although I always work from my base rather than in your office.
