Feel Design

A full-service digital agency based in Yorkshire with clients worldwide, producing websites, logo and graphic design, print, multimedia, photography, video and mobile apps.

Working with Feel Design has been a real revelation of what a responsive, understanding and effective web development partner should be.  We asked for a website at short notice with a limited budget and that is exactly what we got – launched to deadline and fully meeting our brief.  I would recommend Feel Design to anyone.

Testimonials

  • I engaged James to develop a new website for my team building business and despite giving him a complex brief and small budget, he produced a top notch website bang on time. James has consistently gone beyond his remit as a website designer and has provided me with insight and excellent customer service.  He continues to support me as a business and is lightening quick to respond to any issues.

    I would certainly recommend him.

    Graham Fletcher-Hill Owner, Fletcherhill Photography
  • You told us what you were going to do at the start, how long it would take and you delivered, as I knew you would. The site is even better than I’d hoped. I’m so glad we chose to work with you!

    Terry Perkins VAC Calderdale
  • The launch of the new Peter Haddock Publishing (“PHP”) web site was a critical part of our marketing plan to revitalise a 50 year old brand.

    Being a family company that had previously benefited from the support of the local business community, we felt it important to work with a local partner that offered the same set of corporate values as PHP.

    The Feel Design team worked tirelessly despite the ever changing brief from a “globe hopping client” to deliver an innovative and entertaining online experience, within budget – an incredible achievement and testimony to the professionalism and technical strength of the Feel Design team and support network.

    Mark B. Battles CEO Peter Haddock Publishing
