YOUR LOCAL WEB DESIGNER
Hey, I’m Matt, the founder of Web Design and Development company ‘Matt Barber Interactive‘. In a nutshell, I design and build websites for small businesses. I’ve worked with companies in a wide range of industries, both in the local area (Devon & Cornwall), and in other parts of the UK. I pride myself on delivering both exceptional websites, and a personalised customer experience. The feedback I receive from my clients is exceptional – I’ve posted a few testimonials further down the page.
I’ve worked with estate agents, environmental consultants, surgeons, construction companies, accountants, marketing experts…..and many more, to deliver websites that really work well for their businesses. Some of my most recent projects include an ecommerce website for Identity Fashion, and a website where yacht owners can compare insurance quotes. All of these websites are built in WordPress, and offer cutting edge, mobile-friendly designs that can easily be tweaked and maintained over time, and that my clients can easily learn and become involved with too.
Just like all my other clients, I’d love you to benefit from what I offer too. It’s always great meeting new people over a coffee. Even if you don’t need my services yet, I find there’s always something to be learned from meeting up and having a chat. Don’t be shy – send me a message using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Working with Matt was a pleasure from start to finish.

He kept me continually updated and made me feel totally involved in the process. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, professional and personable person to design and develop your business website, then Matt’s your man. He has built me a wonderful website; he’s captured my spirit perfectly in digital form and I will not hesitate to recommend him to my friends, family and contacts far and wide. [July 2016]

Chartered Accountant, Frances haynes Ltd
I would like to recommend Matt’s services for potential new clients. His first project was to get my site mobile friendly in time for the Google swap over – since this was done I am coming up in the top listings in my field.
I have now offered Matt further ongoing work within my companies on a monthly retainer basis and I am very happy with his work . I had never met Matt prior to his engagement and it was all done through the power of social media and LinkedIn.
Director of Multiple Companies, Devon Commercial Cleaning
Matt built me a wonderful website. This was my third iteration of a website: one was user-friendly but not very professional, one was very professional but not user friendly. Matt’s was both! He heard what I wanted and what my ideas were and turned them into reality. He was very easy to work with – ideal when I was very busy. [March 2016]
Managing Director, Blue Parakeet CIC
Matt has recently designed our new website and throughout the whole process he has been professional and conscientious. He has been attentive to our requirements and time scale.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of businesses do you build websites for?
I work with mostly small and medium sized businesses, and have created websites across a wide range of industries including construction, finance, environmental, marketing, medical, property, event management, fashion (ecommerce), and many of the trades (plumbing, electrical etc) to name just a few.
What if I’m not happy with what you produce?
I have processes in place to make sure that you are! I always find out as much detail about what your needs are, and what designs and layouts you like before I start building your website. I provide visuals of your homepage early on in the process so that you can review things and make sure they’re going in the right direction. I’ve not had a client yet that I’ve not been able to satisfy.
What will the end result look like?
However you would like it to look! Design is just one aspect of your website, and so the end result isn’t just about how things look, but also how well your website is optimised. I’ll ensure that your website loads quickly, and that it look great on mobiles and tablets too. I’ll also talk to you about what keywords and key phrases you want to rank for, and I’ll help you to craft high quality content.
How long will it take to build my website?
It depends on a few different things such as how many pages you need, what features you require, and how complicated the design is to implement. Let me know when you need to website by, and I’ll let you know what’s possible! As a guide it will usually take anything from 4 weeks to several months.
Do I need to find my own hosting provider?
Not at all. All of my websites have fully managed hosting, so that you don’t have to do anything. In fact, I’ll provide unlimited space and bandwidth for your website, and I’ll carry out all of the essential maintenance you’ll need each month, including updating themes and plugins, and keeping everything backed up and secure. I even include the option to send me a couple of small 10 minute tasks each month at no extra cost. I’ll also purchase a domain name on your behalf if you haven’t already done so.
