Simon Richards

Web Developer


Hello, I am Simon Richards, a full stack developer based in London & Basingstoke. I graduated in Multimedia Computing at Plymouth University and have been working as a web developer for 8+ years.

I currently work at Dewynters as a senior web developer.

I am available for freelance work for small to medium sized projects. Contact me if you are interested.

Front / Back End Development

I code using clean semantic HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and PHP. I also use libraries such as jQuery and React and tools such as Gulp and Webpack.

All my code is w3c compliant and tested across multiple browsers and devices.

Content Management Systems

I have experience using a vast range of content management systems, some off the shelf (WordPress, MODX, ExpressionEngine, Grav, Contentful), but also bespoke systems using PHP frameworks (Laravel, Codeigniter, PHP-MVC).

Wordpress Development

I specialise in crafting custom Wordpress themes from the ground up to tailor your needs, I also make sure they follow security best practices and optimise them for delivery and SEO.

Every website I create is responsive as standard, working across mobiles, tablets and desktops.

Responsive Email

Do you need to reach out to your clientele? I can create responsive emails for Campaign Monitor, Mailchimp or provide them as static HTML, these emails are tested in multiple email clients to ensure optimal delivery.


As well as crafting your website I can provide the best hosting solution to ensure a fast, secure and reliable delivery.

Whether its an upgrade, a backup or a website fix, I'm sure I can help you out.
