We're a small, friendly Oxford web design studio with over 15 years experience creating custom websites for businesses and charities across Oxfordshire. Whether you’re after a brand new website or simply want to update your existing site, we can help.
Looking for a web designer in Oxford? You’re in the right place.
Hut Six is run by Jo Cox, a specialist WordPress developer who’s been building and maintaining websites for most of her working life.
Rather than evolving the business into a bigger web design agency, she partners with expert graphic designers, copywriters, and SEO consultants who jointly quote on projects when their skills are needed. She still builds each website and conducts every training session herself, but can bring in other specialists at any time without the agency price tag.
The best way to show you what we do is with a few examples of our recent web design and development projects.
The Hospice Lottery Partnership was formed in 1997 with the purpose of raising funds for partner charities who care for people in their community when they need it most, via a weekly lottery and seasonal Superdraws.
SMS Alarms are based in Thatcham and provide both installation and servicing on a range of security systems.
We believe in empowering and involving you, so we’ve got a plethora of supporting services from WordPress training to ad-hoc maintenance, aimed at keeping your knowledge and your website in tip-top condition.
We design every site from scratch and never use existing templates. Each project starts with a thorough exploration of your brief, and we offer unlimited revisions so you can be assured you’ll get the exact look and feel you’re after.
WordPress is our specialism. We take either the custom design-work we’ve produced or the work supplied by your own graphic designer and build it into a fully functioning WordPress website that you can edit yourself.
Whether you’re building your first website in WordPress or want support maintaining an existing site, a little training can go a long way. There’s no need to book a whole day – you can have just an hour if that’s all you need.
Ad-hoc and ongoing support, with advice on all aspects of WordPress maintenance, from routine updates to security and larger changes. We charge maintenance in blocks of just 15 minutes, so you can get help with even small tasks.
Fast cPanel hosting that’s perfectly suited to WordPress sites, with backups and SSL certificates included at no additional cost. We’re also a Nominet member and JISC accredited registrar of UK, gov and ac domains.
Web design for charities
We have a long history of working with charities, not just in Oxford but across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.
In some cases we can even offer web design services at a discounted rate. At the very least, we’ll give you some free advice. If you run a charity and you need some expert help with your website, get in touch so we can see what’s possible.
Jo was completely fantastic! The entire experience was great and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who needs help with a website project - big or small. She is, in short, superb at what she does.
Imogen Goold (Blogger, Oxfordshire)
Excellent, efficient service from Jo. Highly recommend.
Xan Rice (Journalist, Oxford)
Jo was very professional, approachable and knowledgeable... I will certainly use her services again in the future.
Maggie Davies (Footsteps Foundation, Oxfordshire)
Jo did a wonderful job creating my new website... All in all this was an incredibly painless experience with an outstanding result.
Christina Rodenbeck (Astrologer, Oxford)
I have found Jo very useful to help maintain elements of my site which are more complex... I would certainly recommend Jo as a friendly person who’s easy to work with and who can help you achieve such goals.
Trev Williams (Guitar Teacher, Oxford)
I knew the moment I spoke to Jo that she was the right person to transfer our website over to a content management system... She was fast, thorough and incredibly straightforward in her approach and nothing was too much trouble.
Tessa Lamb (Business Language Training, Oxford)
I was delighted with Jo’s work: she combines an excellent eye for spacious design with patience and inventiveness.
Kieron Winn (Poet, Oxford)
Jo has been personable and efficient in setting up my website. She did a great job of understanding what I wanted and providing guidance from her wealth of experience.
Vanessa Rhone (Venus Works, Oxford)
Jo was very professional, efficient and she was patient and understanding with the fact that I was not knowledgeable about building websites or what’s involved... I would highly recommend her!
Jo is a very rare person. She has the technical know how to build you a beautiful website in the blink of an eye, but more importantly, (unlike most techie types), she can explain everything about the process in simple layman's terms.
