Hello, I’m Simon Blackbourn. I’ve been building, designing, hosting and supporting WordPress websites for 15 years. I love translating your big ideas and crazy goals into beautiful, intuitive, high performance websites.

I know WordPress inside out. I make it look great and do almost anything you can imagine. Online donation systems, membership management, podcasts, huge custom databases – the sky’s the limit!

Sleep soundly at night as your website purrs along at top speed on high performance, secure servers, with all the hosting technicalities and WordPress updates taken care of for you.

I build long-term relationships with not-for-profits, the healthcare sector and businesses. I’m experienced, friendly and conscientious, communicating clearly with you throughout.

Case studies

WordPress for an environmental community group

Lumpy Lemon built, host and maintain Moor Meadows’ website to be fast and intuitive, with a wealth of information clearly structured. It’s now their primary source of growth, and is an inspiration to environmental community groups across Devon and the UK.

A long-term design and development partnership

I’ve been the primary web developer for Crisis Action since their foundation way back in 2004, working on various online projects throughout that time. I take all the digital burden from their shoulders, so they can concentrate on their essential work in conflict zones around the world.
