Climate Positive Web Design

You may not think that browsing the internet would contribute to climate change, but actually the internet emits massive amounts of CO2 every year (around 4% of global emmisions). That's the same amount produced by the airline industry and this figure is expected to double by 2025. I can help you by making sure that your web design project is a climate neutral / positive as possible.

Step towards positivity

  • 01

    Changes to the business

    I've lowered my carbon emissions as much as possible, using renewables to power my business, driving an EV and cycling wherever possible. The small amount of emisions I produce are offset by planting trees in my grove via our partner

  • 02

    Changes to my workflow

    When it comes to designing and developing websites, I make sure that I follow the latest coding practices and ensure that the pages are as lean as possible to keep their carbon footprint as small as possible.

  • 03

    Chosing a reponsible host

    Once the website is complete, I will help you find a web hosting provider that is climate friendly. This involves making sure they are powered by renewables and that they have a strong focus on sustainability and ethical practices.

Freelance Web Designer FAQ

  • 0.1 Why hire a Freelance Web Designer?

    Hiring a Freelance Web Designer is often cheaper than going to an agency because they have less overheads. They are also usually more responsive as the client will always have direct contact with the freelance at all times. A Freelance Web Designer will usually specialise in a few different skillsets and can help you build whatever you are looking for from small brochure sites to full eCommerce builds.

  • 0.2 How much does it cost to hire a Freelance Web Designer?

    Every Freelance Web Designer will charge for projects slightly differently. I charge on a per project basis, so I would ask you to send me a brief outlining your requirements. That way I can see if we'll be a good fit and if I believe I have the skills needed to bring your project to life. I can say that my prices for bespoke design & development typically start at around the £2,500 + VAT figure.
