Very happy with the ongoing customer service with Designers Up North. Had a really great website built with them many years ago and they continue to provide support all these years later. Thanks to Matt and the team. We'll be back again soon for a website upgrade!

Jim from Designers up North dropped me a cold email that would have normally gone straight in the bin. But I had already come across their work several times and it had made an impression so we arranged a chat. Talking to Jim, it turned out he really knew his stuff when it came to SEO and marketing - so many web designers (and templates - especially templates) give you a pretty site, but you'll struggle to fit content in or rank the site. Setting up the new site has been a really involved process (maybe because I like to get my hands dirty) - so Matt and Jim listened to my preferences and brief and we have come up with a new look which is a bold new direction, nodding towards both Bauhaus and high end magazines. Overall I'm really happy with the site, but Jim / Matt are still constantly there for support, and keeping an eye out for opportunities to get the website ranking and in the view of my target audience. We're already seeing improvements in rankings and search traffic. Also - the site is constantly tweak able, with an intuitive back end so you can update pages and create visually appealing blogs with ease. It's early days, but I really believe this (despite the high up-front cost) has been my best marketing spend over the last few years and the website they have designed is a really solid platform to grow and build from. Also - they're really personable and always there if you need support/ advice.

We have dealt with Jim @ Designers Up North Ltd multiple times and the service is always first class! Nothing is too much trouble (including our last minute edits :)). I have no hesitation in recommending them.

I have recently launched a new business and needed some creative expertise to blend with my own ideas. Jim & team were brilliant and spoke to understand the style/ approach I was looking for in regard to a logo for my business. Easy to work with , great results and great guy.

Great work from Matt who gave our architects business a fresh look on our website. I proposed quite a few challenges in my brief, but Matt was patient throughout. There were areas that I wanted to have more interactivity on the site with images/text appearing as you scroll and having a filter for the portfolio page. These were all added in and solutions found when there was a sticking point. I had no issues with transferring the hosting over to another provider and getting the site live. Really pleased with the results overall. Considering the responsiveness and transparent communication, they provide a competitively priced service.

I grew to hate my old wedding photography website from a different web designer. Really hard to change anything and just didn't work or look how I wanted it. I got in touch with Matt & Jim from Designers Up North just after the New Year. Working with them has been excellent. Matt has given me a website to be proud of, looks great, works properly and easy to edit if needed. Can't fault these guys, great communication throughout the whole process and If I wanted anything changing it was no problem. If you're on the lookout for a web designer then look no further!

We've been with DUN for over 10 years. They are responsive and helpful and also genuinely nice people to deal with. Highly recommended!

Fantastic experience with Jim & Matt. They have built two versions of my website and I have gone from under a hundred visitors a month to over 10K. They understood my vision which can be tough as a creative trying to get out what's in your brain. They got it though and have built a site that feels like me to attract my ideal clients. Really down to earth guys who I can't recommend enough. Ginger Beard x

Web Design Manchester

All of our websites are lovingly created from Greater Manchester.

We never outsource our digital marketing or web design services, everything is completed in-house, with your business the forefront.

Proudly located in the North West we understand what it means to help local businesses succeed.

And, whilst we’re a web design company in Manchester, we’re small enough to help and understand – the people you speak to on the phone will be the very same creatives working on your project.

Our Work

Post-launch Web Design Services

Once your new website has gone live we have a long list of tasks which will help it get off to the best start.

We also include training sessions to show you how to edit your site and give you plenty of tips for making the most of your online presence over the long term.

Once handed over, you’ll be able to edit every element of your site as you see fit. However, if you don’t have the time or inclination, we also have a flat hourly rate and can be involved as little or as much as you need us.

Website Maintenance

Already Have a Website?

As website builders in Manchester, we know all sorts of ways to improve your website.

Whether you’re looking to make some small adjustments, or thinking about a complete overhaul, we’re here to help you get better results.

Here are just some of the ways we can help:

  • Free Website Audit: We offer a free, no obligation to pinpoint areas ready for improvement.
  • Minor Updates: Although we’re WordPress Web Designers, we can work with most Content Management Systems to help you make small changes to your site.
  • Website Facelift: If you’re website isn’t doing what it needs to, and you’re just looking to give it a freshen up, we can help with that by taking a look at your homepage design.
  • Complete Rebuild: If you’re looking to start from scratch we have plenty of packages available to suit your needs.
  • SEO: You’re happy with your website but it’s not performing in search engines? Our Search Engine Optimisation services can help move the needle.

Web Design Manchester FAQ.

Answers to the most common website design questions we get asked

How much does a new website cost?

Our most-asked question! Every business is individual and their website should reflect that. Our web design service starts from £1,500 and there is no VAT to apply.  For more info, please read our article – How Much Does a Website Cost UK?

How long does the process take?

If you have all the content ready to go, we can get a website built in as little as 2 weeks. However, most websites take around 4-6 weeks when you allow time sign-offs, delivery of content, etc.

Will I be able to edit the website myself?

Absolutely. All of our websites are built using WordPress and once complete you’ll have full access to edit every element of the site.

Will I be shown how to edit the site?

Indeedy! All of our web design packages include training sessions after the website has gone live.

Can I add more pages to the site?

Absolutely. Once the site is complete you’ll be handed full administrative access to add, change and remove anything you need to.

Will my site be mobile responsive?

All of our new website builds are mobile responsive as standard. Once we’ve finished the site we go through a full check on mobile and tablet devices and fix any issues before the site goes live.

What if I have another question?

No worries! Get in touch on 0161 317 4270 or and we’ll do our best to help.

Definitely recommend the team at Designers Up North.

“We have worked together on numerous projects, both directly for our own requirements, as well as liaising on work on behalf of our clients. Jim has excellent flair and understanding of a brief when even we don’t know how to explain it and will turn it into a masterpiece!
