A little about Code Cobber

Providing a helping hand to business with simple, elegant themes that save you time. Allowing you to concentrate on what matters.

So Cobber . . . say what?

Thanks for visiting the website. I'm a freelance web developer based in central Scotland (UK) with 10 years of professional experience. I studied Glasgow Caledonian University and graduated in 2008. So, Cobber . . . A strange little word isn't it. Derived from old English and used in New Zealand and Australia, it's an informal way of calling someone your friend or mate (though mainly used by men rather than women). Well it sounded better that Code Mate and I like the concept, a friend who codes.
So I created Code Cobber.

So, what does Code Cobber actually do you might ask

I design and build cost effective, elegant, responsive websites and themes for businesses. All the websites and themes are built using the GetSimple cms (content management system). I really like Get Simple primarily because it's nice to work with, it's easy, it's fast, it's great for users in business who just want to crack on with web site updates. Ok no more about Get Simple (I could go on for ages).

My approach and your business

Getting a web site isn't that difficult. However just having a web site isn't the answer. Creating a valuable web presence is. Whether you require a simple but effective web presence or something a little more intricate - I'm here to help.

Many website design companies charge ridiculous amounts for websites. I've seen web design companies charge tens of thousands for a corporate website that frankly are no different from most websites and are happy to con businesses into spending more than they need to. Obviously there is a technical skillset needed for designing and developing websites and online web applications, but there is also a requirement to be transparent to your customers and not make things more complicated than they actually need to be. To remedy this, I aim to provide small businesses with a valuable online presence at a price that won't break the bank. . . It's time for some common sense, don't you think.

Based in central Scotland (UK), rest assured I aim to provide you with a website that meets the needs of your business. If you have any questions, please get in touch with me today. Contact me

Keeping things simple:

Company designs, logos and corporate branding should be instantly recognizable to every potential customer, not too cluttered or over ambitious. The same philosophy applies also to web design. The average user makes a decision about a web site within the first 30 seconds. With that in mind, I like to keep the designs uncluttered in an attempt to ensure the user receives the right amount of information they require. Holding the user's attention will increase the likelihood that they do business with you.

Not every business requires the full monty with a multitude of web pages, sometimes it's just as efficient to come straight to the point. That's ok too . . .

I like to think the web site design prices are reasonable, with websites starting from as little as £350.00, you can be up and running in no time at all. Take a look at the prices and packages.

I hope this helps explain a little about Code Cobber and how I work. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me an email.

Thanks for your time.
