Some time ago I wrote a white paper about how to choose the right web designer for your business in which I described the different types of website design companies you could use for a new website or re-design. If you’re an agency looking to outsource some work or a small/medium business with web expertise then I recommend looking at freelance web designers. To save you some research time here are 10 Leeds based freelance website designers that a Google search returned*:

1. Dave Ellis – No Volume

Dave says: “I’m a freelance web designer working in and around Leeds. I have over 10 years experience working with a wide range of clients – from start-ups to multi-national companies.”

(Editor’s confession: I know and have worked with Dave in a previous life – he’s a top bloke and an extremely talented designer.)

2. Craig Haggart – GoInnovate

Craig says: “Goinnovate is a small web design agency based in Leeds, UK. As you may have gathered we are fond of the web. We like making nice looking websites! We are also fond of elaborate footwear, wii-bowling and the occasional curry. We pride ourselves on our commitment to provide the latest technologies, modern styles and helpful services to everyone. We do so, in the hope of making the internet an enjoyable experience, more usable and better dressed!”
