Polka Graphic & Web Design

Hello, I'm Matt…

…and I've been working as a web designer and graphic designer for over 20 years.

Graduating with a degree in Illustration from the University of the West of England, I've worked for many digital agencies across the country, before heading out into freelance work.

I work in many areas of graphic design, but specialise in creating websites that promote your products or services successfully online. I'll involve you closely in every stage of your project, delivering a result that meets your businesses goals. Every new project is approached with an attention to detail and a determination to exceed your expectations.

If you are based in Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Worcester, Hereford, Gloucester, Cirencester, Swindon or surrounding areas, please get in touch.

The Cost

There is no magic, one-price-fits-all for designing and building a website, it depends largely on what's required; however, it's important to be open and provide a guideline cost so you know what level of investment I'd be expecting you to make. Bespoke design and builds typically range from £1,500 - £7,000 depending on your requirements.

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss a Web Project.

Who I work with

I work with individuals, small-to-medium sized businesses and start-ups. I aim to have a relationship with you where I can show a value to your business by being dependable, honest and by doing the type of work which makes a difference. I will always recommend a solution I think will work best for the business. I also collaborate with agencies and other web professionals on larger projects.

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss a project with me.

What I don't do

I don't work with WordPress and existing themes, unless you have a specific requirement for me to do so. I prefer to design and build bespoke websites to be tailored to my clients requirements.

I am not a back-end developer so I don't take on builds for large complex websites unless I can partner with another developer who complements my skill set.

My skills do not lie in App development, I can however assist with the user interface design.
