About NBM Web Designs

A complete client first web design service creating beautiful, responsive, and affordable websites that build brands and push businesses to success. 

Our History

Photo of James MarriottNBM Web Designs, originally based in England, was established in 2002 by James Marriott. James wanted to create a company that could offer a dedicated web design solution for those people looking for a more personal website; one that is as individual as they are.

In 2007, NBM Web Designs was proud to expand its services to include website designs for small businesses. We offer the same high quality service and realistic pricing as our family website design service to our small business customers, as well as standing by our aim of individual designs that reflect, in this case, the character and attitude of that business. Later in 2012 we expanded even further and are now able to offer our services to clients no matter how large their company or their client base.

In 2011 we relocated to Hillsboro, North Dakota (USA), a small town situated between Grand Forks and Fargo. Since then we have become a happy member of this small community, providing website solutions to many of the local businesses. We continue to offer our services to clients both sides of the ocean.

A privately run business, with modest needs we don't have an expensive office nor do we spend money on flashy advertising, relying instead on our reputation and word-of-mouth referrals. This allow us to keep costs to a minimum without sacrificing quality of service so that we can continue to meet our company objective. All we ask is that if you are happy with the service provided that you recommend us to your friends and family.

About James Marriott

IMG_20131227_082339I was born in Suffolk, England but spent most of my life living in Colchester, Essex about 45 miles south of my birth place. In 2011 I moved to small town North Dakota after meeting, and later marrying, a Minnesota girl I met while in Canada!

Before creating my own web design company I studied Electrical Engineering. I am proud to say that everything I know about web developing is completely self-taught (with a little help along the way) and continue to study every aspect of this industry. Being passionate about what I do I jump at the opportunity to learn more about new technologies and methods related to website design, development and search engine optimisation. 

In my spare time I'm an avid motor sport fan and love spending time out on my motorbike. I still spend as much time as I can in England though I am also determined to see every part of the US.

Oh yes, tea. I drink a lot of tea. A LOT of tea. Yorkshire Gold.

About this Website

"It's very plain, shouldn't you have a big fancy site?"
I prefer to think of it as clean and as I value my client's time, I want my clients to be able to find the information they are looking for as easily and as quickly as possible. Likewise, this website is also designed to be updated quickly and easily since the less time I need to spend on my website, the more I can dedicate to you, my client.

This website is built using the latest version of WordPress with a customised version of the Twenty Fifteen Theme. It uses CSS3 to add some discreet styling here and there and images are limited to just the photos of myself and  the portfolio.

The site has been created to be responsive using a "mobile first" approach, and is very easy to update both content and the platform.

A personal note

I would like to take this opportunity to thank personally Robin Williams (no, not the actor) who's ideas, beliefs, wisdom and sage advice have been with me from that very first day. Without this, that first idea and dream would never have been such a success. Thank you Robin.
