Ash Duckett

In the digital age it's almost essential that you have a presence within its sphere. Whether you need to show your clients how premium your product or service is, or maybe some tools to speed up your processes with a web or phone app, Arise Software can help.

I am a freelance, human, ethical, and dynamic web developer able to produce websites, web apps, phone apps, work on existing projects or produce new products for your business. Although based in Fordingbridge I work remotely so no matter where you are, get in touch. If you have a project for which you don't have a budget, get in touch anyway and let's talk.

Fullstack Development

Regardless of whether you need a few tweaks to your existing site's frontend, or you need a full blown app with both phone and web variants, I am here to help.


Unpretentious and human I won't rip you off by charging for five minutes work. I get a kick out of helping people so if you need someone who won't mess you about get in touch.

Content Management

I'm happy to help clients who just want a web presence but don't want to maintain it. Equally happy to build an entirely custom WordPress theme to allow them to manage their own content. If you're unsure what you need, get in touch so we can talk.


I won't just vanish after handing over a project. Whether you need one-off updates or you need someone to go in periodically to ensure everything's ticking over and up-to-date, both options are available.


I am focussed, prompt and human in my responses and encourage questions if you have them so you never feel left in the dark.

Simply Heart Brain Soul 2022

Multilingual in the language of therapies, Sue Davey and her company Simply Heart Brain Soul were a joy to work for in building this site. It's not short on pages or animation and she was certainly very happy with my work. We still add features as they're needed including selling vouchers for her business and any ongoing maintenance.

Mad Hatter Cleaning 2023

Anouska's cleaning company was a lot of fun to work with. Requiring an Alice in Wonderland theme we had multiple pieces of artwork put together for this site. Building the site as well as working with Anouska was a lot of fun as we agreed a design, a custom logo and assets to use for this one.

Brandon Tai of Conceptai

Ash is an outstanding developer with a unique ability to adapt to the way we work as a digital agency at Conceptai Design Studios. He is always learning new things in order to add to the plethora of skills he already has, making him extremely valuable to us. Great organisational skills and time management make working with Ash easy. I would highly recommend him for any web development work. An extremely experienced and talented developer and a huge asset to our team.

Anouska Catlin of Mad Hatter Cleaning

Ash is so helpful, he's easy to communicate with and listens to ideas well. He has been a joy to work with and keeps you in touch with all developments throughout the process. I would highly recommend Ash, he will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with his work. I didn't have any idea about website design and the technical jargon that goes with it. Ash has been very kind, helpful and easy to talk to, he explains everything clearly if you need him to and is also a fast worker once he knows what you want. Thank you Ash for all you help and hard work.

Susan Davey of Simply Heart Brain Soul

I can highly recommend Ash, he is patient, knowledgeable and very talented. I absolutely love my website that Ash produced, it's has amazing graphics, clean lines, and is intuitively user friendly. Ash is a perfectionist who goes the extra mile. Since producing my website he has also put together leaflets and business cards that look amazing. I will use Ash again in the future, I really wouldn't go anywhere else. He is also an extremely lovely guy.

Anton Matthews of 10Radio

Had a coding problem with a 'Caculator' script after moving a client's web site host. Ash came to the rescue and the problem was solved very quickly. His fee was so modest that he got an extra 'bung'! Thoroughly recommend this delightful chap.

Will Carr of Conceptai

Ash is a fantastic developer and incredibly talented. He is a highly motivated individual often going above and beyond to complete projects. He has been a great asset to the team and it was hard to see him go!

Mike Davies of Benefex

I can heartily recommend Ash as a great person to work with in every respect. He's great fun, very down to earth, and a highly qualified subject matter expert across all elements of web development. In addition he's an able communicator, comfortable sharing ideas with others regardless of their technical background, discipline and capabilities. Ash has no problem absorbing technical information, asking questions and checking appropriately to ensure he fully understands what needs to be delivered, how and when.
