East Midlands
WordPress Web Designer & Developer

Fresh new websites brought to you by one of the original website creators

Welcome to onesixone

Based in South Knighton, Leicester, travelling across the Midlands and UK working with both new and existing clients, individuals, businesses and organisations in order to design and build successful websites for them.

Working with you
Onesixone first takes the time to listen to you, collaborate with you and ultimately build a relationship resulting in expert guidance throughout the process of designing, writing, building and launching your website.

Long term service and support
As one of the original web site designers, starting out over twenty two years ago, I recognise the importance of continued customer support and service, not just for launch day but throughout the lifetime of your website and hopefully onto the next one as your business grows and changes.

Whether it’s re-designing an existing web site or the beginning of a new one I would love to hear about your project.

Client Testimonials

Martin has been designing and maintaining my professional website for several years now and I continue to be thrilled with his work. He shows great imagination and creativity in forging a brand or image. His eye for colour and play with space and fonts make the pages pop and he provides careful attention to detail concerning content.

Last year I also commissioned Martin to design a logo for a foundation with which I’m involved. Though the board was somewhat unsure of what we wanted, Martin took our ideas through an exciting, cohesive and robust evolution, proposing a beautiful and effective solution. The new logo received strong accolades both from the board and from those with whom we work.

Martin of Onesixone has been a pleasure to work with throughout the development of our new website. The process has felt streamlined, extremely well supported and technical options very clearly explained. We are excited about our new website, and are even able to do some edits, such as pricing, ourselves! We would definitely recommend Onesixone.

Onesixone is an innovative and forward thinking business who combine creativity with technical expertise. They ensure solid web foundations are built on expert technical knowledge but also ensure the end product not only functions well but that the design and aesthetics are first class. I have worked with Onesixone on a number of website design and builds and have been impressed every time. I would highly recommend Martin and his business.

With OneSixOne I ended up receiving many outstanding services. The first was a wonderfully built website and that looks and acts fabulously on desktop and mobile devices and which always receives meticulous and fast maintenance. The second part was the helpful and sound business advice I received on how to best use the website: meaning how to get Google and prospective customers to see it, and, really, a million other strategies, large and small, to make the site work for my business. Number three was how OneSixOne set up my eCommerce page. I knew it did exactly as what it was supposed to do because customers simply used it without questions about how it worked or what it did, etc. And then, over the years, as changes needed to be made to that page in particular they were always posted in a timely way which is to say mostly immediately!

But maybe the most important ingredient in all above was OneSixOne took the time initially to ask about my business and to really understand what I was attempting do with it. The whole process for me, from a description of what I was looking for to hosting of the site to maintenance once it up was up and running and was seamless.

Maybe I should add that I'm not someone who usually posts reviews. But my exception is for OneSixOne: Everything it did for me exceeded my expectations and, at the same time, it taught me things about doing business on the web I which didn't know to begin.

So, yes, there are a lot of web designers and developers out there. But with OneSixOne I found the "one" who always took the extra step such that I felt I was working with a collaborator.

For all who come across this review I'd say the short version of what I've outlined is let your search for a web designer and developer begin and end with OneSixOne--they provide outstanding service and value in every way!
