Wordpress Web Design in Stroud, Glos

Web Design in Stroud

Advance Web Solutions is a freelance web design business owned and run by Teresa Vance.

We provide a web design service based in Stroud in Gloucestershire; we cover the local area, including Painswick, Nailsworth, Gloucester and Cheltenham, but we can also liaise with you by Skype if you are not local. We have happy customers from many different places, even as far afield as Portugal!

We’re particularly used to working with small businesses / SMEs. Our designs are functional, attractive and “up-to-date”. More importantly the websites we make are fully responsive and will work well and look good on mobile phones and tablets too.

If you would like to discuss your requirements and get a quote for a new website, or even to improve or make changes to your exisiting site, please contact us.

As a freelance web designer, my main priority is to establish a good working relationship with my clients – many people find they prefer to meet someone face-to-face who understands their business. Before starting on your site, I’ll meet with you at least once to establish exactly what you want from your website, and how best we can make it work for your business. We will build you a website that is:


  • clear and attractive
  • easy to use
  • responsive (works on mobiles and tablets)
  • has good content

We listen to you

You will find that we:

  • are excellent communicators
  • will listen to your requirements
  • will implement what you want
  • will consider the user experience
  • will make sure your website works

Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at our portfolio and read our testimonials below.

I was fortunate to meet Teresa in a coffee shop in Painswick and soon became professional partners in my Digital Marketing business based in Gloucestershire. Teresa is now a preferred supplier of web design and copy writing to over two thirds of the Client base of EQBP.

Teresa has a practical, hands-on approach and not only works to achieve tight deadlines, but has high levels of emotional intelligence, enabling great enduring relationships with Clients.

Whilst EQBP now works across Portugal as well as the South West UK, Teresa continues to be an integral part of our service offering, and produces excellent work on a consistent basis as well as maintaining close professional relationships with Clients in both countries.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Teresa and her support team for all OMB, SME and Professional web design projects.

David Oxendale

Director, EQBP

We have been very happy with the quality of service we have received from Advance Web Solutions. Teresa is very helpful and creative as well as patient and understanding of people who are busy and have little knowledge of website design. Teresa is always efficient and willing to go the extra mile to create the website you want.

Painswick Pharmacy

Teresa has provided an excellent service. She has listened to our requirements, designed a website which has been complimented by the Visit Britain inspectors and by our customers.She also sorted out our hosting arrangements by moving us to another local business. She has then followed up by providing a swift and efficient service to any change requests that we may have. Highly recommended as a website designer for small/local business.

Teresa Vance of Advance Web Solutions has completely updated our rather ‘tired’ website for us;  we are now in the 21st century, thanks to her!

She was innovative in her suggestions for alterations and additions to the website, and consistently patient in her explanation about how we could add comments to the blog and so on.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Teresa’s work.

We are delighted with our new Stroud Book Festival website. It looks fabulous and can do so much more than we thought would be possible. Teresa talked us through the process step by step and made it all seem totally manageable and actually very enjoyable. Teresa is quick and effective and has good insights into what will and won’t work in practice. We have had lots of comments from the public about how much they like our website, that it’s visually engaging and easy to navigate, so we’re very happy.

Stroud Book Festival

Teresa designed and built my website late last year (2013). I knew roughly what I wanted but did not have a specification. She interpreted my ideas and turned them into an excellent solution, providing a technically creative commercial website for my company. Feel free to contact me as I would have no hesitation in recommending Advance Web Solutions in the future.
