Yorkshire Dales Web Design

When not designing websites, I can usually be found making music in front of anybody who will listen

I’m Jake Richard & I’m a freelance web designer with over 15 years commercial experience, I have been developing websites as a specialism since I graduated with a 2:1 design degree in 1999.

I work for a wide variety of clients, from new business start ups to some of the worlds best known companies, I do this from a home based office in my beautiful home town of Skipton, gateway to the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Starting off from a background designing CD-Roms & producing music for children’s games & educational media, I have since worked on hundreds of websites & multimedia projects. From small website designs for individuals & local businesses through to large web portals & CD-Rom projects for multinationals such as Proctor & Gamble, Cussons & The BBC…

I have worked individually on projects as a freelance web designer, being responsible for the whole process from logo design through to coding, photography & online marketing. I have also project managed large web developments with dedicated teams of web designers, photographers, content writers & coders ensuring the projects came in on time and up to a top notch standard.



In 2001 I was a founding partner & director in Headjog Sound & Vision, a small multimedia design agency based in Skipton with a diverse skillset and big ideas. The company went on to produce some world class websites, compose inspirational music and take awe inspiring photographs, all for some of the worlds best known brands such as Adidas, the BBC, Sony & Computer Arts magazine.

I also write & compose music, in 2005 I put some of my music recordings online & inadvertently established a production music agency which went on to sell music for TV, Radio and the internet to companies as diverse as the BBC, Sony, Sky, Playboy & Phones 4U.

The technology behind the internet is constantly advancing & as a freelance web designer, technology & search consultant I continue to learn new skills on every project I take on.

I also enjoy sharing my knowledge, I have taught web design, animation & video production at further education level to a wide range of students from young people to mature students.

In addition to creative design, I’m also a bit of a technical geek.

If you need a freelance web designer to work on a specific project, or if your a design agency looking to outsource a design project, please contact me or call +44 (0) 7985 433 090 to enquire about fees and availability.

I look forward to working with you.
