I specialise primarily in creating attractive, customer focused and search engine friendly websites for small businesses. Something I have found with many small companies, is that although the majority do have a web presence, this does not necessarily mean that they are making the most of this. I can help companies both be found on Google, and also help convert the visitors they receive into paying customers.

Each website I design is based around some very fundamental (in my view) principles. I ask myself the following questions:

  • Is the site clean looking and easy to navigate?
  • Is the information easily accessible?
  • Is it clear what the visitor should do?
  • Can people find it in Google?

If the answer to any of these questions is, “no”, then there is work to be done.


As I am self employed, I enjoy the luxury of being able to really get to know you and your needs; I aim to be flexible and work around your timetable as needed. I try and make everything I do as free of jargon as possible and am always happy to discuss or explain why and how I am doing something for you.

Although my main areas of work are web design and development, please feel free to contact me if you have any other requirements. As I said, I can be flexible and if you simply want some small changes to an existing site – or would even like some development work done – I will probably be able to help.

Customer Focused

As I am self employed, I enjoy the luxury of being able to really get to know you and your needs; I aim to be flexible and work around your timetable as needed.


After two and a half years working for one of the UK’s leading internet marketing agencies I quit to start my own company. I’ve now been working as a freelance web designer and developer for over three years.


I’m based in Loughborough, Leicestershire and do most of my work in the local area, for other local businesses.

That said, I am always happy to work with people nationwide, or even internationally, as web work lends itself to remote working where needed.

Search Engine Friendly

I have extensive web design experience and concentrate on my designs being firstly user friendly and secondly, search engine friendly. This means that whilst my designs are made to be aesthetically pleasing, they are primarily designed with the purpose of encouraging business and enhancing your online reputation and visibility.


“Upon first meeting Rob, we were confident that he would comprehensively fulfil our needs for a simple, modern and high quality website. Being a small business with no online transactions, we wanted a “leaflet-style” website that showed what we do and how to contact us.
Rob listened to our requirements and suggestions every step of the way and was extremely helpful in producing high quality solutions to our requests. We have had feedback from several long-standing clients that our new website is an excellent reflection on the business.
Overall the project was cost effective, delivered within a good timeframe and with a high degree of professionalism.”

I hired Matthews Media to fix my web site after I’d made the foolish mistake of trying to outsource on the cheap. Robert quickly fixed my WordPress site, added new features, and made sure the site looked professional on phones, tablets, and desktops. Most importantly, he listened to what I wanted and always communicated with me quickly. He is now my web developer of choice and I will definitely use Matthews Media again.

Robert has worked with me to transfer my website vinylcare.co.uk from a simple home made site to a full function professional shopping trolley site. His professional approach has made this complex transition as painless as possible and given me a much enhanced capability that I can now build on for the future, The base sales site is now up and running successfully and Robert is working with me to allow me to customise and personalise the site to meet my specific needs. I look forward to working in partnership with Robert on other projects I have planned.
