I'm Rika, a freelance web designer and front end web developer. I design custom websites or build them to a supplied design.
I live in and work from the Western Cape in South Africa. I build websites for local and international clients.
I used to work in accounting and when we moved from Pretoria to Saldanha Bay in 2017, I went full freelancing in website design. I did my first web / HTML course in 2015 and haven't looked back. I am efficient in CSS, WordPress, WooCommerce and numerous other technologies.
Using your or my design, I build light-but-sturdy, fast, and easy-to-use websites.
I make use of the excellent Divi and Oxygen Builder range of tools. I carefully incorporate the page builder into the design of the website. This allows clients and content managers to quickly lay out pages and edit content on the front end of the website.
I bring your business to life. Whether your business is still only an idea or already a reality, my job is to provide you with eye-catching brand identities as well as a beautiful and user friendly website to go along with it.
I can set you up with your professional-looking website. Whether it's something simple up to a fully e-commerce site.
Implementing basic SEO can improve your search rankings. But more advanced SEO is needed to be the top of your niche.
To take more weight off your shoulders, I offer hosting and can manage your website for you so you can focus more on your business.

Your website design must focus on satisfying your company's goals while meeting the needs of your audience.
Doing both well is a balancing act. I'll help you tackle that challenge.
Your website is not only the cornerstone of your brand presence, but also a powerful way to generate revenue. Why spend money on something that doesn’t perform?
Your customers are online. They’re hungry for information. There are no second chances on the Internet, so be sure that you make a good first impression. I am dedicated to helping you grab your customers’ attention — and keep it — with a modern, digital home for your business.
If you’ve neglected your search engine optimization strategy, odds are they are finding your competitors. A great SEO strategy strengthens your website’s organic ranking by helping to position your website on page one of search engine results, ensuring that you are being seen by those most likely to do business with you.
The first result on page one of a search engine results page gets 70% of all organic traffic. The goal is to get your page to that coveted page-one position, boosting your traffic and increasing your sales.
You’ve invested a lot of time and money into your website. But just like a car, it needs regular maintenance to keep it running efficiently. Trust your site to someone who are tech-savvy and firmly committed to your online success.
Enjoy a newfound peace of mind knowing your website is in my ultra-capable hands.
