From single pages to full WordPress and eCommerce website development
Unless we jointly decide otherwise, I design every page from scratch based on your brief; I will never download a pre-made website template and pass it off as my own work. That way we can create something that is completely fit for purpose. We will work on the design until you’re happy with it, and we don’t move on to developing it as a static site or bespoke WordPress theme until it’s signed off.
Have you or your graphic designer produced a website design, but you need someone to code it into a fully working page or site? Whether you want a custom CMS template or something completely static, I can build it. As well as working directly with clients, I also work with other agencies to code their work for them. You can find out more about that on the partnerships page.
A good deal of the websites I build are driven by WordPress CMS, which means you can have a bespoke designed site with a login area allowing you to update your own content. WordPress is my specialism and I’ve used its flexible framework as a basis for all types of websites, from business blogs to online shops (using the WooCommerce plugin) and even a full CPD tracking web application.
In all cases I provide a free initial consultation and a full written quotation, without obligation, so you always know where you stand.
I knew the moment I spoke to Jo that she was the right person to transfer our website over to a content management system. We were looking for someone who combined a really good technical knowledge of WordPress with a keen eye for design, and Jo provided just that. She was fast, thorough and incredibly straightforward in her approach and nothing was too much trouble. The training Jo delivered as part of the job was clear and thorough too. Thank you, Jo, for a fantastic job!Tessa Lamb (Business Language Training)
Thank you very much to Jo Cox Design for assisting in changing and updating our website. Jo was extremely helpful and dealt with my requests very quickly. Would certainly recommend.Rachel Watmough (Butterfly Bridal Boutique)
Jo was brilliant from the moment I first got in contact with her. She understood what I needed and the vision I had in my head, which she managed to get on to a website. Quick worker and reliable. The website has totally taken off too, so I’m so happy I went with Jo Cox Design.Lucy Beesley
We couldn’t believe our luck when Jo offered to build us our website for free. We were even more astounded when only weeks later we had a great site, purpose build to our needs. We couldn’t have paid for a better site or more fluid an experience of commissioning a website.Emma Gordon (Centre Manager, Bicester Green)
I was lost in a sea of technical jargon and hosting gobbledygook until Jo appeared like an angel from on high and fixed everything for me, getting my site back up and running in no time at all, with no fuss. Jo’s technical knowledge meant I could relay my problem in layman’s terms and she knew exactly what to do straight away. I would definitely recommend Jo Cox Design for anyone needing a website creating.Frank Ralph
Despite the fact that I am a dinosaur when it comes to technology you had the patience to see me through to being able to give you the text and pictures, which you then turned into a really good finished article. I have had many emails from people who have seen it, all of whom have congratulated me on the website. But the congratulations really relate to your work.Mike Mackenzie
Jo did a wonderful job creating my new website — just look at it. She grasped the brief immediately, and then she added her own creative spin. I found her very easy to work with, partly because she listens attentively. She’s also been prompt and patient with my follow-up questions as I’ve learned how to navigate my new site. All in all this was an incredibly painless experience with an outstanding result. Thanks JoThe Oxford Astrologer
Jo Cox Design is great value for money. Jo understood the brief completely, while the handover/after-sales were very reassuring. Two things that I would like to highlight: 1) Jo gives you a useful training session in using WP and 2) the mobile version of my website is particularly exceptional. I can highly recommend Jo to any potential client, from a start-up to a fully fledged organization, looking to make an impact on the web.Stephen Gregson (Language & Culture)
Jo has been looking after my website for a couple of years now. She has just completed another refresh of the site for me, tidying up a few pages and installed a fantastic new booking system that has made a huge improvement to the functionality of the site. I’m really pleased with the result, and the website looks great. I can highly recommend Jo for all your website needs.Andrew Tee (Get More Adventure)
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. As a result, the process of designing and managing your website is completely stress free. Her charges are very reasonable too. Thank you, Jo.Emma Kemp
Great service, fast, efficient and excellent value for money… Thanks JoStan Law (Grant Handling)
Brilliant website with a huge volume of material made accessible. Really effective and easy to use. Can’t recommend you highly enough.Marie Wright (OXDOX)
Jo dealt calmly with a very complex and difficult brief, to my great satisfaction, and a subsequent rise in sales.Paul Carrera (Carrera Graphics)
As a freelance musician and teacher my website is very important for generating business and maintaining good contact with my clients. I have found Jo Cox Design very useful to help maintain elements of my site which are more complex. I like to have control of my site but I often find there are things I cannot achieve on my own. 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
I recently hired Jo to give me some basic HTML and website editing training. I learnt so much in one hour, and she really demonstrated her knowledge, without jargon, and demystified some of the magic of web programming. I would recommend Jo to anyone who needs to brush up on their HTML knowledge, but I would also hire her for larger projects. She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the future.Ruth Holroyd
I put a message up on facebook that I needed someone to take over the hosting of my new website, and Jo responded and left her number. I got in touch and she took control of the situation, contacting the previous host and effecting the transfer. I have been impressed with Jo’s knowledge, helpfulness and her calm manner. Thank you Jo.Jo Moir
Jo was very professional, approachable and knowledgeable. She managed to fix all the issues with our charity WordPress site in super-quick time, as well as giving me a thorough and easy to understand tutorial, enabling me to amend the website myself in future. I will certainly use her services again in the future.Maggie Davies (Footsteps Foundation)
I was delighted with Jo’s work: she combines an excellent eye for spacious design with patience and inventiveness.Kieron Winn
