I am an experienced, professional web developer and designer living on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, in Argyll.
I build websites and web applications for businesses all over the UK, so whether you are based in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow or the Highlands or the
Islands - I can certainly help you. Photography and hiking are my greatest passion, activities, which I share with my beautiful wife. I take inspiration from
the stunning Scottish landscape: its mountains, lochs, glens and the mighty sea.
A furry cat keeps me and my wife company.
I build powerful, efficient, bespoke and secure websites. All my websites are optimised for Search Engines and ready to go.
so why choose me?

I am a reliable and honest freelance web developer with ten years of experience.
Being friendly and approachable helps build trust between my clients and myself.
Closely following my client's guidelines and ideas results in websites that serve them for a good many years.
I keep costs to a minimum: I work from home and charge flat rates for the project as a whole. To avoid unnecessary travel expenses, I communicate with clients via email whenever possible. IT WORKS!
For more complex websites I use the power of the Wordpress content management system. This opens up a whole world of plugins (mini programs or short code) that significantly shorten production time.
If my task is building a more simple, static website, I will create the code from scratch. These websites are lightweight and load fast.
All my websites are reliable, safe, secure, optimized for search engines and delivered on time.
So what is needed for a good website? A smart, strong and lightweight frame built on solid foundation. Flexible and reliable building blocks that withstand attacks. A sentinel that keeps an eye on shadows lurking in the darkness. Finally you cover the structure with colours and shapes... Ready! Just like a house, isn't it? Or maybe a fortress?
Use arrows to navigate
As I mentioned earlier I use WordPress for the majority of the websites I build. It is a safe, secure and popular content
management system that is used in millions of websites around the world.
On the other hand, it is very important that your website stands out and gets noticed. This is why I have developed my own core Wordpress template on which I can build the very structure I want. This structure will then hold the design elements: images, videos, text and sound and more.
So how does it all go? In the first phase we will discuss your website and try to answer questions: What does it need to do? What do you want to achieve? Who are the target audience? How will it
engage the visitors? Once such questions are answered I set myself to work and design the front page of your future website.
This usuall takes only a few days.
When we have got a striking look and feel I begin the coding phase of the project. This is when the website is actually built and usually takes a few weeks, depending on the complexity of the task in hand.
During the whole process we keep in touch and usually discuss the improvements every couple of days. You tell me if you want something changed and I also make suggestions.
As for the payment...?
Normally you pay when the job is done and you are happy.
5 great people who have placed their trust in me
I would just like to thank Balint for the amazing work he did revamping my website. He looked at my old website and took the relevant text and I supplied some pictures and he found some amazing new ones and all was completed in 2 weeks. Balint is truly professional and easy to work with I can't recommend him highly enough.
Working with Balint on my project had been easy and pleasant as there was always a sound understanding and good communication between the client and the designer. This is the most important when looking for a web-designer who is to create a site exactly the way in which you have in mind. My descriptions and sketches of how I would like the design to be were well-respected and put into consideration entirely, and it shows in the outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better co-operation for this project, and I am extremely pleased with the final result.
I hired Balint to redesign and transform my already existing website into an e-commerce one. The result was brilliant, met all my expectations and generated a lot of sales. Balint is an easy-going gentleman with superb ideas. He is quick and efficient. He completed my website just before the deadline. Last year I decided to relocate my business and I moved back to the US. Now I am working with him again on my new website for a jewelry workshop which I am about to open in the upcoming months.
I contracted Balint to make my website after I had done an extensive research into several web design companies. He has done a great job, he basically made my dream come true, my website looks and works as I had imagined it would. I was also very happy about the lot of creative input by him (I asked him to avoid using stock photos and vector graphics so he decided to use images of objects from his household). I am very satisfied and would recommend Balint to anyone.
We have no hesitation in recommending Balint. We had very little knowledge and experience of websites when first contacting Balint to design a website for our company. Balint was very flexible and creative, he had some great suggestions that made our website simple and easy-to-use. We are very pleased with the result and to have established a good relationship with Balint. We look forward to working with him in the future.

How much is a new, bespoke website going to cost?
Building a reliable, solid website takes careful planning, inspired design and meticulous coding. I am proud of the work I do and always walk the extra mile to keep my high standards. I work with clients who know that a well-built and maintained website will serve them for many years. On the other hand, I always try to keep costs to a minimum so I am able to offer competitive, affordable prices.
Let's look at the costs at depth!
Once we have discussed what your website needs to do and how it is going to do it, I will have enough information to quote a price. I charge flat rates for projects, so there won't be counting of the hours! My quote will show you the estimated time I will spend working on your website (a deadline), how much the work costs and every other item you might need to pay for. A few things that might induce extra costs.
Hosting. A must. I do not provide hosting myself so you will have to sign up with a reliable hosting company. I am more than happy to help find a hosting plan for you.
Wordpress Plugins. Optional.
Plugins are small pieces of software that carry out certain tasks and functions. Using them can significantly speed up production time
so it is often wiser to purchase one (there are also free options) than coding the function from scratch.
SSL Certificate. Recommended. If you plan to process any kind of sensitive information (e.g. taking card payments, storing confidential information, etc) you will want to encrypt the data that is collected by your website. SSL certificates do this job.
Content Delivery Networks. Recommended.
Among other benefits, signing up with a CDN provider (free options exists!) will speed up the time it takes for your website to load into
one's browser. Less waiting, happy visitors.
Stunning imagery. Recommended. Images break up the dullness of written text and incourage visitors to read on. You will need attractive photographs that engage the viewer. Consider hiring a professional photographer to take the very photos that show how desirable your product or service is. You might also use stock photos.
You will usually pay for your website when it is completed and you are happy with it. If the project takes more than a month to finish then you will pay in parts at the end of each month. You will purchase any plugins as we proceed, I will make sure we get the best one for the job. Should you need stock images, you can buy them also as we go. Everything else can be left for the end.
Payments will be made via bank transfer.
Getting your website built will be fun, you will be able to observe the process step by step.
