My name is Max aka The Pig Farmer and I am a Website Designer/Host and Prince2 Practitioner Project Manager based in Devon. I work with an eclectic mix of fellow freelancers, all specialists in their trade and together with you, we can create your brand and take it to market. Since around 2011, all of my websites have been built on WordPress and this has helped streamline my operation.

I have travelled extensively throughout my life and this has always been a source of great inspiration, not to mention great clients. I have designed websites for clients in Bali, UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, Australia, Africa, Kuwait, New Zealand and of course here in the UK. I have also made useful contacts with fellow freelancers in these countries too. It’s all about communication.


I have been ‘communicating’ for a living my entire adult life. From my brief education as a commercial artist, through ten years in the British Army’s Royal Signals and beyond as a data communications specialist. I have studied communication from the physical science of voice transmission and the psychology behind non-verbal communication, all the way through to the engineering building blocks of the internet and the many applications that use it. I enjoy the idea of being a digital anthropologist and am studying right now for a degree in Divinity with the University of London.

I love design and take full advantage of my lack of formal training which allows me to have my own perspective on things, – nobody has ever told me how to design and I have never had to work under a designer or mentor of any kind, I have always found my own way. As far as web design goes, this has always meant clean, uncluttered intuitive design, with which I am now strongly associated.

You can find out more about my marketing strategy here but I would first like to finish with something crucially important to me, that is evident in many of my reviews and testimonials, and that is: customer service.

Fanatical customer service

Since day one, I have strived to build relationships as I believe these are the cornerstones of good business. Relationships with partners and suppliers and above all, good relationships with the client are what my success has been built on. My client’s website is as important to me as it is to my client, every time. I pride myself on my customer service, attention to detail and going the extra mile in an age when all of these things seem to be less and less prevalent. Your success is my reward.
