About me

I absolutely love to build and design emails and websites. I work freelance, based in Northamptonshire. This is a nice central location, close to bigger towns and cities such as Northampton, Milton Keynes and London. I am happy to work with you wherever you are!

Working alone allows me to take on a range of projects. It also allows me to provide a personal service to you. No account managers, no allocated time slots for your work. Just one point of contact: me!

As I work alone, I have very low overheads. No staff, vehicles or premises to fund. This means I can be competitive when it comes to pricing.

Although I prefer to work remotely, I pride myself on my communication skills via telephone, email, Skype or Goolge Hangout - connectivity to discuss projects or deadlines is never an issue.

I have been trading officiallyfor six years now and I have loved every moment. My passion for creating and bringing an idea to life has grown every year. I am always using my surroundings for inspiration, studying and expanding my knowledge to make myself a better designer.

During the last few years I have been a part of some extremely exciting projects, including working with Arsenal FC, the Financial Times and Sony during the launch of the PS4 console.

I love..

Designing & creating, white chocolate, coffee, aeroplanes, cups of tea, dogs and my friends & family, without whom I would never be doing this.

I hate..

People on stilts and falling: especially off stilts!


My Journey

2013 onwards

Keeping it simple and trading as ‘D W Stanhope’, whilst specialising in the area of email marketing.

2008 -13

Selling ‘Whey Protein King’ allowed me to begin trading as ‘DS Web Designs’, providing web design, email marketing, brochure design, social media and SEO services. During this time, I acquired work with companies such as Wicksteed Park Ltd, Halfords and Fitness Superstore.


My first self-employed venture! I took full time my own website project, entitled ‘Whey Protein King’. ‘Whey Protein King’ made money via an affiliate programme. I later sold the website.
