Fiona Day – Fiona Day Consulting

Our clients are discerning firms and individuals, often working within the creative design industry or web development themselves, trusting us to meet their exacting standards.

We’ve worked with a huge range of people over the years, from one man (or woman)  businesses to large multinationals. Having started off working with DC Thompson as a first client we have been very lucky to work with a range of larger companies such as BT, The Royal Artillery Museum, York University, Engage Mutual, The Archbishop Of York and Newby Hall, as well as many smaller businesses in Yorkshire and beyond, as far afield as Hong Kong.

Our visual design will grab your customers attention and the web development of the back end created by our talented developers will give your website the infrastructure to offer your customers an appealing web experience and enable you to manage your website easily and efficiently.

Our developers in Yorkshire, London and beyond in the UK (we don’t outsource to India or Russia)  have designed, built and launched hundreds of sites over the years. Their development expertise combined with design savvy enables us to create market leading sites at an affordable cost. Our clients know that they can rely on Feel Design to design and develop effective websites. Our project management processes enable the design and development phases of your website to be efficiently run from the first meeting through to launch and follow up. Our team of graphic designers, developers, SEO specialists and copywriters will all work together to produce your website.

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

  • 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.

From The Harrogate News 8th November 2011

Feel Design celebrates tenth anniversary with 400th website

A North Yorkshire-based web and design agency is marking two significant milestones this month.

For not only is Feel Design, which is located in the village of Goldsborough near Knaresborough, celebrating its tenth anniversary, it has just been commissioned to create its 400th website.

The company, started by graphic designer James Blundell and his wife Carleen, lists Newby Hall, Cundall Manor School, the Archbishop of York, Calvert Carpets and BuySell-MyTickets amongst its clients.

In addition to working for clients based in the UK, James’s services have been called upon from individuals and firms located in Spain and Russia to create multi-language websites.

James, a former teacher and college lecturer with a background in design going back to the 1980s, said:

sFeel James 0171 When we started the business in 2001, one of our very first clients was online ticket company, Club Sports.

I’m delighted to say that they, plus many others including Snow Home, The Royal Artillery Museum and DC Thomson Publishing, are still with us.

The last two years have been our busiest to date and we have just signed off our 70th website of the year, which was for Ashville College’s old pupil organisation.

Over the last decade website development has changed beyond all recognition. Flash sites have given way to content managed systems.

Technological advances mean that websites are becoming simpler to navigate and update whilst at the same time delivering so much more and costing less. Animation, 3D modeling and e-commerce are part and parcel of the services we offer to clients on a daily basis.

We are now looking forward to the next decade and the challenges that will no doubt go with it. Our aim is to keep up with all the latest developments and ensure that we offer our clients value for money websites that drive customers their way.
