What we do

We offer design and development services and work with individuals, agencies or companies directly. Drop us a line if you want to discuss a project.

Planning & design

After discussing and studying your content and functionality requirements, we will carry out research in your industry and plan a suitable design solution. You will then receive a visual design demo.


If required we also offer website builds. Once the design demo is approved, we will build a fully responsive and accessible bespoke WordPress website. After completion we can recommend hosting options and help setting everything up.

Ongoing support

We can provide ongoing website support at an agreed monthly fee or as and when required, which can include updates to the site such as adding fresh content pieces, social media posts or technical updates.

Sarah (UI Designer)

I am a freelance UI/UX designer with coding knowledge. I started off in print design in publishing and designing labels for beer and wine (which was great fun!) but soon got interested in the digital world and started to learn how to design websites back in 2009.

I worked for a marketing agency in Nottingham for many years as a senior web designer until I started a family and decided that freelance work would suit me better.

In my last role I did a bit of everything and would see a project from start to finish, including initial research and planning, designing prototypes and building websites in Wordpress before I decided to specialise in the design side of things.

Mike (Magento Developer)

I’m a hard working web developer with a passion for backend development, coding standards and creating user experiences that make sense. Throughout my career I have always found it easy to build relationships with clients, members of my team and other departments. I’m a huge fan of Scrum as an agile development methodology and well-planned projects.

Using my background in design and my interest in accessibility and psychology, I believe I provide a valuable insight into what makes a page convert.

Lady (Feline Resources)

I have 11 years experience in feline resources and my duties include sitting in the driveway or window to check when my family comes home and to keep the neighbourhood cats off the property.

I need approximately 16 hours of beauty sleep per day which limits my working day somewhat but I occasionally reward my staff by placing a mouse in the office. It’s important that they feel recognised and valued. I mostly work here for the bonuses which I get paid in Dreamies.
