Chester’s beautiful walled city has a fascinating history that stretches back to Roman times, where it was the largest army camp in Roman Britain. Much of Chester’s history is in plain sight when walking around the city. It includes medieval buildings in the city centre and the famous Chester Rows, covered walkways filled with boutique shops and cafes.
Since we moved to North Wales, we’ve been regular visitors to Chester for business and pleasure as it’s less than thirty minutes drive along the A55 Expressway across the England/Wales border. We’ve visited Chester so frequently, and we could possibly drive there with eyes closed.
Chester is a small city bustling with business activity. So, it’s no surprise than we’ve designed plenty of websites for businesses in Chester and the surrounding areas, including Deeside, Hawarden, and Saltney.
We’ve designed websites for Chester businesses that cover almost every sector. Still, many of our Chester clients work in finance, including Easy 2 Switch, Equity Finance, Mortgage Advice Center, and Status Mortgages.
We’ve worked with accounting and legal firms, including Bevan Rose and Sage Accounting. Mercury Search is a Chester-based recruitment company that specialises in the printing industry, and Animal Search is the UK’s biggest and busiest missing pet finding service.
Based in Chester city centre, Animal Search called us when they needed a brand identity refresh and website redesign concepts. Designing for Animal Search involved us working on; art direction and brand concept design, colour, typography, layout, and a little user interface design.
Our goal for the Animal Search design was to create a consistent brand experience across desktop, mobile, posters and printed materials. The logo mark we designed represents solving a puzzle by finding a missing pet. We incorporate illustrations into our work as often as we can. We chose Vic Bell to illustrate the Animal Search puzzle concept.
After first agreeing on the new high-level creative direction for the updated Animal Search brand, we created static designs for their website’s most important pages. We paid particular attention to how someone’s experience of their brand would be consistent across platforms.
We’re currently working three weeks every month with Nozomi Networks. The rest of our time, we’re available to work with interesting people on designs for products and websites. We’d love some of those people to be from Chester. Living and working so close to Chester, we’ve developed an affinity with this beautiful city. The businesses we’ve worked with in Chester have been some of our favourites. We look forward to working on web design projects in Chester again.
We’re Stuff & Nonsense. From our studio in North Wales we help businesses in and around Chester to improve the design of their websites.
Stuff & Nonsense were a pleasure to work with. They guided us through the process of designing and creating a website which we are truly proud of. We look forward to working with them in the future.”—Andrew Mahon, Equfund
