I’m John a Freelance Web Developer

With +14 Years WebDev. | WordPress | Woocommerce experience.

About Me

I’m John Montgomery, a full-time independent web developer from the majestic harbour town of Mossel Bay, South Africa.

My attention to detail and years of experience make me the stand-out choice for your next project.

I’ve built countless websites for small to medium businesses often working with agencies in South Africa and the UK.

It’s time to stop hiring “coders” and hope for the best.

When every pixel matters, creative agencies, startups, and established businesses trust me to deliver handcrafted WordPress solutions.


Nimue Skin Technology

I was contracted by Flume Digital Agency to be the lead developer for Nimu’s new website. It was my responsibility to interpret and code the design files designed by Flume & approved by the client. The site had several challenges as there’s quite a bit of custom functionality integrated into this WordPress / Woocommerce portal. The whole site is a custom template & no premium themes or page builders were used.

Woolworths Mothersday Campaign

Flume Digital Agency contracted me to developed a custom PHP Gift carding system for the Woolworths mothers day campaign. The only “tricky” part was getting the final message card to download correctly on all devices as canvas can be quite tricky to implement. Another feature is the language select for the 9 official languages.

The “Visit Website” link below links to my development server as the campaign ended after mothersday & the link was “closed” from Woolworths SA’s website.

John has been irreplaceable to me and my business! I can’t even explain how helpful he’s been, and what an amazing developer he is.

Having had previous bad experiences with both agencies and freelancers, it was refreshing to find John ( Yourdesign.co.za ). He is to the point and doesn’t mess about. He gets the job done quickly and goes beyond what you ask him to do. I am so very happy I have found him and he will be my to-go guy for any website issues from now on.

Pierre Potgieter ( Novumintelligence )
It’s been a pleasure working with John on my company’s website. He was sensitive to our requirements for simplicity and ease of use and was always quick and helpful in his responses. I also appreciate his honest input on new features, even if it went against his financial interests, so as to deliver the best solution for my company’s budget and needs.

Paulis ( BuildCBS )
An absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish! Exactly what I needed in the budget and time frame initially discussed. Cannot recommend Yourdesign enough. Give him a try you won’t regret it. Wish I knew about John when we started our website, wasted a lot of money and time with so-called local “Agencies”.
