Web design with a human touch

Ethical web design is about designing a website that benefits the client, the people who use it, and the world at large. All PJWD websites are designed to:

  • Present your business in a clear and honest way
  • Provide your website visitors with a good experience
  • Reduce your impact on the environment
  • Respect the privacy of your visitors

I’m a signatory of the Copenhagen Letter, as I believe we need to put humans before business and commit to real action to improve our world. 

For PJWD clients this means you can be assured of an approach of fair and transparent pricing and ethical business practices. 

Real and loyal relationships

Paul Jardine Web Design projects are a team effort between the client, web designer and collaborators. We work towards the same objectives, communicating clearly and honestly from the start.

When I work on a project, I am part of your team. We collaborate and communicate honestly and clearly so that you can achieve your website goals. 

I’ve carefully chosen a team of trusted collaborators including graphic designers, photographer and copywriters who can support you with your online activities.

Eco-friendly website design

Running websites uses energy and creates emissions, and we can all do our bit to reduce the impact of our digital activities on the environment.

PJWD projects use and encourage eco-friendly web design practices such as green hosting, minimal design and fast loading pages. 

It’s not always practical to completely overhaul how you currently do things, but where possible we’ll look at ways to reduce the environmental impact of your web activities.

Whilst the climate emergency is real, the solution is not about aiming for perfection, but about the cumulative positive effect of a number of progressive improvements.

Sharing knowledge

My commitment to ongoing learning means that you’re assured of best practices in web design and development. 

You can also tap into my knowledge with my website consultancy services, where I can help you figure out how you can improve your website.

I always aim for tailored, jargon-free explanations, whether that’s via my newsletter, with website advice for small businesses on my blog or in my online SEO training workshops.

Paul is a really friendly, nice guy whose passion for what he does comes across as soon as you meet him which made me feel at ease straight away. When it came to the website design, Paul was really interested in my ideas as well as having great ideas of his own.
