Hello | Bonjour | Olá

I’m a full-time freelance digital designer and developer with over 15 years industry experience. From my base in Portugal I’ve worked on a wide range of digital projects for clients across the World; from small websites for business start-ups, to large-scale, complex e-commerce platforms. In addition to web development I also specialise in search engine optimisation, online marketing and branding – so whatever your project, I’m here to help.

As a web specialist I offer a wide range of web-related services, from the design and build of a brand new site (including hosting solutions) to the audit and upgrade of your existing website; ensuring it looks pixel-perfect on all devices and screen sizes.

Nathan da Silva
Digital Designer / Developer


Looking for a new identity, an update to your current logo or want to make your web presence match your offline branding, then I can help – I have the creativity, knowledge and experience to add value to your brand online.

Web Design

Web design is what I do...extremely well (I’ve been doing it for years). It’s my core service and I pride myself on designing bespoke solutions that are perfect for the needs of my clients.
Responsive? Of course. Reliable? Absolutely.
Effective? Goes without saying.


I offer a range of fast, reliable and secure hosting solutions. Whether you are looking for a shared hosting package for your personal website or a complex cloud hosting solution for a business, I can advise on the best possible cost-effective option for your requirements.

What I do best

In short, if it’s a digital project, I can help. I build websites that are bang-up-to-date with current technologies and design trends. All of my sites are responsive, meaning they look great and work perfectly, no matter what mobile device they’re viewed on. If you already have a website but are looking for a refresh or update – no problem, I can develop a new site (hassle-free) that helps generate new business, now and in the future.

Discovery & Research

Research is the first step in the process and is equally, if not more important than the rest. I spend time getting to know your business to ensure I know exactly what you and your audience want.

Design & Prototype

This is where the pieces start to come together. I design and plan the site including wireframing, prototype development and consider the UX and UI (User Experience and User Interface) architecture.

Develop & Implement

My favourite part; coding and implementing the website to look great across all devices and browsers. I test finished sites to make sure it functions just how it should and don’t sign off any project unless the client is 100% satisfied.

Launch & Iterate

Once I’ve got the green-light from the client, the site goes live. But my work doesn’t stop there. I continue to develop the SEO of your site, helping it appear higher up in the search engine rankings.
