Bristol Website Designs

Web design in Bristol

We are Web Design City a website design and development company based in Bristol UK, consisting of a number of talented freelance designers who are in love with designing, building and improving websites and user experience.

We work on many platforms, and have a particular penchant for developing bespoke WordPress themes for our clients.


We like to keep things simple and with only three of us you get to work directly with the web designer.

Having worked for agencies and prestigious companies we have a vast amount of experience in web design, branding and web technologies.

Our web design experience includes advanced knowledge of search engine optimisation (SEO), if you want high organic rankings in search engines like google we may be able to help.

We build competitively priced websites: as freelancers we can keep our overheads down and therefore our costs to you.

Once we build it, you will own the design of your website – that may sound odd but surprisingly some companies retain the code and design.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Achieving a good ranking in Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines is reliant on a combination of factors – it’s a little like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.

The majority of search engine users are more likely to choose one of the top suggestions in the results page so it’s essential that a web design company should put some development time aside to give their clients website a strong SEO foundation.

At Web Design City we believe that a web designer or website design agency should have a good ‘in-house’ search engine optimisation skills and every website when first built should contain strong ‘on-page’ optimisation as standard.

We have a proven track record in SEO and after the initial website setup we ensure your ranking remains strong. We also offer an advanced SEO service, and when you hire us we will give you basic SEO training.

We lovingly hand-code

Software programs, plugins & platforms often contain unnecessary code. It’s a bulky bi-product that produces slower websites, makes them harder to maintain, and they are less search-engine-friendly.

Hand-coding produces less, more efficient code. This makes your website faster, easier to maintain and search-engine-friendly. At Web Design City we like to hand-code because it also gives us greater control of the overall design.

Hosting, CMS and Aftercare

Hosting, domain name registration

Often people don’t have the time to get involved in hosting and domain name registration, and for some the whole issue it can be a little daunting.

We are happy to advise you on these aspects of website development and we will explain how you can set these things up.

Alternatively, we can take away the hassle and do it for you – many of our customers prefer this.


Our websites have a user-friendly Content Management System (CMS) that allows you complete control over the content.

After care

Once your website is completed we will continue to support it, supplying free updates to keep things running smoothly.

Friendly freelancers

We are not a big company. We are a lean, nimble, alacritous organisation. Much of the work you will see on this site has been created by two or three freelance designers and developers working from our Bristol office. Our clients liaise with us directly throughout the planning, designing and implementation – reduced bureaucracy means greater value for money.

Whether you are a large organisation or a start-up business looking for a new website, Web Design City will design and build you a website you will be overjoyed with!
