I'm Ian McIlwraith, a Web Designer.

And I'm working to make the web a more beautiful place.

I believe in building websites different. Instead of taking months to deliver a lackluster product, I work to exceed expectations by building a custom website within a few short weeks. But speed doesn’t mean that the quality decreases: my goal with every new website is to create experiences that will delight your visitors.

My Design Philosophy

Featured Website

Milner's American Southern Restaurant

As a long standing family-owned restaurant in Winston-Salem, NC, Milner’s was in need of a updated, modern website to showcase their southern cuisine and provide an easy way for patrons to browse the menu online. The site boasts a clean, modern design, stunning photography, and a custom mobile-friendly digital menu.

Website Design

Website design is a comprehensive process that involves everything from the actual design of the website to the implementation of hosting, your domain, and various related services.

Each website is custom designed from the ground up, based entirely on your needs. Your content, photos, and graphics are all expertely crafted into the design to create a cohesive experience — not just uploaded into a premade template. Then, the design and features are tweaked based on your input until you’re satisfied with it.

Once it’s done and you give the final go-ahead, the website is pushed live on an existing or new domain name.

Website Maintenance

If website upkeep isn’t your thing, then I am happy to offer monthly website maintenance. This service involves regular software updates, content edits, and anything else — all billed on an hourly basis.

Ian did a fantastic job building a new website for my business. He is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, listens to his clients, provides thoughtful feedback when needed, uses best-practices in his website builds, is priced reasonably, and overall just a pleasure to work with. From start to finish we had my website off the ground in less than two weeks and I could not be happier. If you are looking for someone to help you build a website look no further and let Ian do it for you. You will be glad you did!

Ian created an exceptional website for my event & wedding venue. In the beginning, I didn't know what I needed, but he gave me many suggestions and was able to interpret my desires and create exactly what I wanted. His organized communication throughout the process made my decisions easy! My favorite part about working with him is his foresight and ability to predict what I needed. He answered questions before I even knew I had them and provided tutorials and articles to help me manage the site after he finished. He even gave me a wonderful demo of the site in the middle of the project so that I could collaborate with him and be part of the design process! He was extremely professional and exceeded all of my expectations in only a few weeks! I highly recommend hiring Mcllwraith Enterprises, LLC for your website!

He was thoughtful in choosing good quality images and graphics for our site. He has been very responsive, quickly returning all phone calls and emails. Very professional and produces a quality product.

I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Ian on my new website. Right from the start he was very responsive and made changes to the site as soon as I requested them. The only thing that held up the process was me at times because I had to write up things for my website. I've been getting even more calls for business now that my new site is up. And on top of that 3 out of 4 customers comment on how much they love my website. His pricing was very fair and the quality was great. Can't speak highly enough abut my experience with Ian and the work that he does. Highly recommend this web designer.

I recently worked with Ian to develop a new website for my client. He is a great listener who understood their unique needs. Working with him was seamless. He is detail-oriented, efficient, and the consummate professional. The website Ian designed surpassed all expectations we had, and my clients are absolutely thrilled. I’ve recommended him several times since we started working together and will continue to do so. I have been so impressed with Ian, I have even hired him to do my own websites!

About Me

Hello! I'm Ian McIlwraith.

What started with a basic website for a local school almost seven years ago turned into years of building beautiful, responsive websites for businesses of all sizes. I work hard to ensure that expectations are exceeded and that all my clients have a website that will serve them well for years to come.

I believe in doing the right thing every time, for every client. I quote all my projects fairly, taking into account the unique needs of each project. I also believe that if you pay for a product or service, you should own it. Unlike other agencies, I don’t host your website in my name — instead, everything is registered under your name and you have all the tools and knowledge to use those services.

If you want to talk and see if we’d be a good fit for each other, then just give me a call at 336-582-1000.
