Naked Website Design is named because nothing is hidden. I won’t try to sell you something you don’t need and I’m really transparent about my fees and my expertise.
Clear costs; you only pay for what you want.
I can do as little or as much as you need to get your website off the ground. If you want a website you have total artistic control of I can do the set up and the dirty work then you can do what you want with it; I put the bones there and make the bones all work. I’ll remind you to maintain your site with updates, or you can pay me to do it for you. The choice is yours. I’ll also give you a list of things not to do; you don’t want to break your site! I provide video tutorials for clients using their own sites and tailored to their particular needs. Once I’ve set a basic site up for you it is easier for me to see the kick it needs to get it into a shape you are happy working with. I can teach you how to fly with your site and make it totally your own but if you prefer you can just ask me to update it when you need.
“I had been looking for a web designer to build my first website and been put off by sites that felt impersonal and intimidating. I was immediately drawn to Naked Web Design, it looked clear, friendly and professional. Lisa has done a fantastic job of building my site and helping create consistent branding/graphics. She is approachable, focused, professional and responds immediately to requests.”

Branding; make your stamp on the world.
“It came down to a decision about how much time did I want to spend learning stuff when Lisa Cole (who already had this knowledge) could do it in five minutes? I could spend my time doing better things.” Rita Rita Williamson DesignsI can use your existing logo or develop a new one with you to make a consistent style for you across the internet and on printed material. You can have your own look across Folksy, Etsy, Facebook and Twitter accounts, on your own website and on postcards and business cards.
Communicating; through print and social media. Facebook and Twitter are one of the main ways people are getting heard about on the internet right now. I can make sure that your accounts are all set up, look fantastic and do what you need them to do. If you need a mailing list I can design and set them up and if you have skills to share how about an e-course? I have some brilliant resources to make these things run smoothly at a very low cost.
Naked Website Clients A lot of my clients are artists and designers and because that is my background too I understand that the technicalities of a website are something not everyone is interested in.
I can help you get the most out of your website, de-mystify the jargon and make the whole design and development process easy and fun.
“I’m Lisa Cole, a 40 something graphic artist based in Bristol. I trained in design with an emphasis on fashion and textiles at the University of West of England and gained a credible 2.1 mostly through an insanely nerdy and rather dull dissertation about costume history. Since then I have had dabbled in the 9-5 thing, found I didn’t fit in and vowed never to work in an office ever again, ever. I’ve experience (and qualifications) in delivering arts and craft courses to children and adults. Event management and promotion of huge street parties to community arts events and I’ve also run an online retail business for the last 10 years.”
Please note that there is no guarantee that Lisa will be naked if you employ her to make you a website though it has been known to happen. Generally, and mostly because her home is a wind tunnel, she is fully clothed.
