I established Rozegarden Website Design and Hosting in February 2003 after many request for private work, at the time I was working for the East Riding Council teaching Website Design to Adult Education Tutors. I initially ran the company as a sideline to my teaching for a while, but in later years as word spread Website Design has become my speciality and I now have quite a large portfolio of happy clients; I also freelance for other companies under ‘non-disclosure agreements’ and although I am unable to add this work to my portfolio, the experience gained is invaluable.
I am a sole-trader working from home, which greatly reduces my business outlay and without a ‘swanky office’ to support, I can pass the financial saving on to my clients. My skills are easily equal to many in the web design industry and I not only produce websites that look professional and have extensive functionality but I also ensure my clients are able to update their own website if desired. This does mean that some of the websites in my portfolio may look a little different to the images I show, the client may have changed things around a bit.
Not all websites need changes; it very much depends on the style of website and the needs of your business. Even when content alterations are needed, some clients prefer me to make the changes for them; I call this my 'Website Administration Service'.
When it is necessary for me to meet tight deadlines or offer an additional specialist skill, I have a team of trusted individuals on hand who work closely with me to deliver perfect results, I therefore often refer to ‘us’ and ‘we’ in the articles on this site.
We are proud to work with these valuable clients
