Some recent work...


I am a UK-based Web Developer & UX/UI Designer with well over a decade of experience creating websites. Focusing primarily on content, usability, and accessibility, my work places the end-user at the centre of the design process. As a Developer coming from a Graphic Design and Photography background I understand that aesthetics and brand values can be as important to a successul design as logical structures, hierarchy, and a great user experience.

My role tends to change with each project, and I can fit into different teams easily. I have extensive experience covering most aspects of a website project - from research and planning, through to the design, front-end build, and back-end application development / CMS integration. I specialise in Content Management Systems such as Concrete5, Wordpress, and Shopify (for Ecommerce).

When I'm not designing/building/curating online experiences, I love listening to a wide variety of music (I'm an old-school vinyl junkie at heart), drinking too much high-grade coffee, working out new tunes to play on my accoustic guitar, exploring the beautiful Wiltshire countryside on my bike, or relaxing with my amazing family.

Lovely things my clients are saying...

I've worked with Rich on various projects running from full CMS-driven website builds through to HTML email campaigns. I've always found his work to be of a high standard, and his technincal knowledge / input invaluable. From a Design Agency perspective, outsourcing to Web developers can be a complete minefield, but I've always had a great experience with Rich because he is trustworthy, and takes real care about his work output.

I've worked with Rich many times over the last five years, and I've only admiration for the way he takes on a brief of any size and produces fantastic results every time. When it comes to website development, he is a rare breed as he comes from a design background – which means he not only has the technical ability to produce cutting edge websites, but the design flare to match! If you get the chance to work with him, you'll find him extremely personable, easy to work with and a true expert in his field. I really can't recommend him more highly.

The Good Collective

We have worked with Rich over the last five years on the design, build and support of our website,, and he is now working towards the launch of a BSL Zone app later this year. Throughout this time he has been a pleasure to work with: Rich is proactive and forthcoming with new ideas and designs, highly reliable in keeping the site up to date and always available while also being very approachable and responsive to our requests and questions. He communicates technical things in straightforward, clear language which is really helpful for all of us, too.

Richard Tidmarsh has been an invaluable support in liaising with our staff team to keep our website up to date. Richard takes great care in presenting a positive and professional website to promote the highest expectations of learning.

At Elmhurst Teaching School, we were very impressed with both the quality of consultation and the quality of the website that Richard built for us. As school leaders, without advanced levels of technological and web-design knowledge, Richard has been able to support us to design and manage a professional, effective and easy-to-maintain site, and this has really helped our public image.

Jonny Walker
Assistant Director
Elmhurst Teaching School Alliance, London

Our site has now gone from tired and dreary to colourful and informative with the help of Richard Tidmarsh.

Richard's support has been second to none, with his expertise we have been able to breathe life into a new site which the whole school community loves. Any issues and amendments are always dealt with quickly and to the highest standard.
