Sarah Hayes is a Joomla developer / Joomla web designer based in Sittingbourne Kent which is located close to the M2 and M20.
I started designing and developing websites in 1997 and as such I am one of the UK's longest established web designers with an enormous amount of experience in not only designing and develping effective websites but what works online.
I have chosen to specialise in developing custom Joomla websites, custom Joomla templates, converting PSD to Joomla templates and HTML to Joomla templates, sourcing and project managing the development of Custom Joomla Components and providing bespoke training for Joomla. I have extensive experience designing and developing not only Joomla websites but also static websites, CRE Loaded osCommerce and WordPress. From initial design concept, through to installation and build, custom template design, integration, customisation, training and on going support.
I enjoy designing and developing custom bespoke Joomla websites that meet your requirements and the challenges that go with building your bespoke Joomla solution. The sites I design are sharp, clean, uncluttered and easy to use for both you and your site visitors. As you browse around my site you can see that the layout and style of the sites I design vary enormously. Each website I design, whether static or database driven, is custom built to meet your requirements.
I also develop bespoke Joomla templates from your screenshots or existing non-Joomla website. Many of the templates I develop are for other web designers so even if you already have a web designers you are happy with, if they are not able to deliver the unique Joomla template you need than I can still help.
I have been made aware of several web design companies that are not only using text from my website but also using screenshots of websites that I have developed. This includes an off shore developer using a well known freelancing website who has put his name to websites I have developed when putting himself forward for projects. All the screenshots shown on my website are of sites and templates I have designed and/or developed and I am able to show you working Photoshop files of the proposed site designs and I am able to upload any of the sites I have developed to my development server for you to view. Before engaging any web development company I would recommend that you satisfy yourself that they really have developed the websites they list in their portfolios.
When I'm trying to source a product or service I like to be able visit a website and see exactly what the company or person has done and how much the product or service is going to cost me. With that in mind, and so we don't waste each others time, I have tried to be as open and transparent as possible in both the services I provide, the sites I have developed and the costs involved. I see no point in showing cheap pricing only to find ways to increase the price later. I have my charges and you have your budget. Use the Quote Builder to see how much your website will cost.
Once you have looked through my services, portfolio and pricing and are happy that I can provide the services you need within your budget I will be happy to provide you with a detailed, written, quotation which clearly shows all the costs involved including any ongoing costs such as hosting and annual license fees for extensions etc which may be required if your site includes commercial components.
I pride myself on putting my best into each project. I work with you and aim to build a long-term working relationship. During the 16 plus years that I have been developing websites I have seen a lot of sites and online businesses come and go. I have a wealth of experience which I am happy to share with you and advise and guide you in the right direction. It might not always be what you want to hear but if I think something won't work, I think your wasting your time and money, or could be better done a different way, I will tell you.
