We’re still a small company, by design. We’ve resisted the temptation to grow bigger because we know that we do what we do best by staying small and maintaining the ability to form long-term relationships with our customers.
We’re experienced designers who specialise in flexible, responsive websites that look fabulous on every type of device, mobile specific sites and applications. We’re multi-disciplined, so user-experience and front-end technical development are just as much part of our process as colour theory or typography. Over more than a decade, we’ve honed our processes and approach to projects:
- We only work with one client at a time so you’ll get our full attention
- We’ll immerse ourselves in your business and culture
- We’ll work alongside you as often as we can
- For the times we’re apart, we’ll set things up so you can watch our work progress
- You get to ask questions and make suggestions all through the design process
- We’ll agree weekly goals and work in agile style sprints
- At the end of each sprint, you’ll come away with working web pages to continue development
Here’s more about how we work and why that’ll help you.
I’m a designer, author and speaker who’s known for my design work, books, conference presentations and contributions to the community. Jeffrey Zeldman (the Godfather of web standards) once called me a “triple talented bastard.” If you know of Jeffrey, you’ll know how happy that made me.
Over the last fourteen years, I’ve made designs for amazing clients and written two books, ‘Transcending CSS’ and ‘Hardboiled Web Design.’ I’ve given over 50 conference presentations and hosted workshops and training events for other web professionals all over the world.
Watch me present ‘Hardboiled Web Design’ at DIBI conference in 2010.
Andy might have over a decade’s experience managing design projects for the Home Office, ISO and STV, but I’ve had twenty-five years managing him. I run the business end of our business and during projects I make sure everything runs smoothly and that everyone has what they need before they need it.
Where we work
We’re based in Gwaenysgor, a small village in the North Wales countryside. Being away from the stresses of city life means we can concentrate more easily on making designs as beautiful as the things we see from our window. We’re not too far from the hustle and bustle though. An hour from both Liverpool and Manchester airports and close to major rail and road routes. Here’s a map showing where we are.
