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!

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

WordPress Web Designers FAQ

Answers to the most common WordPress website design questions we get asked

How much does a WordPress website cost?

One of our favourite questions! Every business is unique and their website should reflect that. Our WordPress web design service starts from £1,500 and there is no VAT to apply.  For more info, please read our in depth guide – 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 2-3 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.

What payment methods can I use?

We accept Bank Transfer / BACS

Will I be shown how to edit the site?

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

Can I add more pages to the site?

You can indeed. 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 WordPress 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.

I’m calling these guys the digital wizards!

“What can I say about Jim and Matt other than they literally got inside my head and knew exactly everything I wanted, absolute legends who have created pure magic and madness.

Listen up, if you want an amazing creative business website, whacky, alternative and want designers who totally can give you what you need… these are your guys!”

Jade MaguireWedding Photographer
Thoroughly deserve 5 stars and would recommend to anyone.

“Jim and Matt were excellent - they took time to understand what we wanted and were very patient with requests for changes and refinements. They delivered a great output, which was exactly what we asked for.”

Nick JacksonSelby Town PCN
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!

When tight deadlines appear, he will work his professional magic with calmness, efficiency and humour!”
