Hi, I’m Phil Rivers, creator of riverslondon.com. Website Design London is a post in my own words about my personal journey as a web designer, and the serviceI run today.
It wasn’t great but it was a start. The few years prior turned out to be a huge waste of energy, time and resources. Although I had made a loss financially, I was finally happy to be free from the burden of my espresso bar. Besides, my initial instinct was always a creative career but over the years I had fallen out of love with graphic design.
Web design and development had ignited a passion for creativity and an eagerness to learn; with it came motivation!
As I became more confident in my work, I pondered with the idea of running my own web design service from home or applying for a mid-level developer position. I respected web development and the ability to write code, but I also really enjoyed the process of designing and developing websites as a freelancer and overseeing the project in a manager role.
Up until the last couple of years, I had lived a life based on logical principles, which were based on equity. Perhaps it was time to listen to my heart? Perhaps I could be more productive doing something I loved?

More than anything I want this service to be rooted in good karma. I want customers to feel confident that we have their best interests in mind. This is why I implement a ‘try before you buy’ policy. Clients are able to have their websites built without the added risk of a deposit or credit card details. Once built, they can see it in action before committing to a payment.
We strive for long-term relationships built on trust and have found that this approach often filters through to the best clients. Have a look at our service offers and see if anything suits your needs.
We’re here to help and always happy to answer questions!
