Welcome to rhwebdesigns.co.uk based in Torbay, Devon.
Offering a personal, friendly service for anyone looking to create or improve their online presence.

I’ve been building, designing and optimising websites for nearly 20 years and I love creating websites that help businesses and individuals succeed online. All Shopify and WordPress websites I design are optimised for Google and look great on all devices whether it’s a desktop PC/Mac, tablet or mobile phone.

The list shows just a small selection of tasks and projects that I can happily help you with.

Five-star service, quality of work and knowledge! We couldn't recommend Rich at RHWebDesigns enough, thanks to the recent re-development of our website and transition from IONOS to Shopify. No detail goes overlooked and we are buzzing with the end result! Thank you from your bee pals at Beevive

We had a vision of a rebuild project of our entire website. Spoke to Richard about the project and he had a proposal drafted and costed within days. Pleasure to work with and made everything every simple! For such a big project to be completed in under 4 weeks was amazing! Looking forward to working with RH Web Designs for foreseeable future!

Holly Watkins (Sourced By Holly, London) Interior Designer and Household Furnishings Shop owner - 5* Google Review

Richard was super helpful, he took the time to truly understand exactly what I needed from the very beginning and then not only built me a brilliant website, but he went above and beyond to make sure I had the tools to run it myself going forward. He came up with excellent suggestions and ideas which I hadn’t thought of myself, always going the extra mile to ensure I understand the process and felt happy with each stage. I could not recommend him more, a truly brilliant service from start to finish!

Kath Cassitta, on behalf of the directors at Mario’s Pizzeria Oxford. Pizza Trattoria Oxford - 5* Bark Review

Highly recommended! It was easy to contract with Richard, in his initial call he came across as extremely; professional, knowledgeable, experienced, engaging, organised and caring. He gathered all the information we required and re-laid it in detail in writing together with a quote. That price was the price we paid no hidden extras. The site was up and running within the time frame quoted. Once the deposit had been paid, Richard went straight to work, absolutely nonstop super-efficient. He is very polite, well-mannered and friendly. He has excellent communication skills and is very trustworthy. Richard made great effort to explain things in a way that I could understand being a lesser technically experienced person than he is. The end result, our new website is even better that we had envisaged and even hoped for. Richard encourages and welcomes feedback and works extremely hard to ensure you are satisfied. I have really enjoyed the experience, Richard. Thank you.

Richard was recommended to me and I can honestly say, he is excellent and really knows his stuff! He's not only hugely improved our previous website's appearance which is so much more professional and on brand for us, we're also now ranking in Google on page 1 and 2 for many search terms directly associated with the business. We are so happy we decided to work with Richard, he's got such a wide ranging set of skills, he's also managing our Google ads and Google Business pages. The business looks forward to continuing the success and working with RHWebDesigns for years to come!
