Right where you need it
Message 205 is a small digital design studio that makes great websites, awesome brands and robust digital strategy. We do so by challenging the status quo, taking a fresh approach to all briefs.
If you need web design, advice on brand development or an online strategy to set you apart from the crowd, you’re in the right place.
Our solutions deliver where you need it most. From a simple marketing website, to a fully supported e-commerce suite, you'll be glad to have us on the team.
Over 60% of all websites that use content management are built on Wordpress. All of our websites are, too. It's a secure, search engine-friendly platform that we love to develop on as much as our clients love to use.
Designing for multiple screen sizes presents an array of challenges, not least of which is making sure designs stay sharp. We push the pixels hard, ensuring your message rings out, regardless of where it's viewed.
We see our clients as partners, working with them to move their business or idea forward. By getting into the detail, we can understand what's needed in order to make a real difference. And we don’t stop there; we continue to provide support, growing with you and making sure you’re best equipped for the next step.
Our clients love working with us. We think you will, too
Our clients do more talking than us - and rightly so. We enjoy getting to know what makes them tick and where they see themselves heading.
No two projects are ever the same, so we employ a generous helping of grey matter to produce a solution that is as innovative as it is fitting.
With a set direction agreed, we get to work putting in all into place. Constant communication ensures that the final result feels just right.
Our projects aren't considered finished once we've launched your new website, brand or digital strategy. We stay alongside to help you with support, analytics additional services so you never feel left out in the cold.
"Message 205 recently designed and now maintains a website for Arturius International Ltd. From the outset, their energy, collaborative approach and pro-active stance were welcome and just what we needed. They understood the remit, were quick to respond to changes and presented us with a website on time, all of which was excellent. I have lost count of the number of positive comments I, and the directors of Arturius International, have received regarding the site. Since then, Message 205 have responded rapidly to requests for change and updates – again, a sterling service.
I can very strongly recommend them to anyone who needs a new website – their work is outstanding."

"We can’t thank Ash at Message 205 enough for all his hard work and attention to detail while working on our new website. The new site is better than we could of hoped for and Ash managed to deliver everything we asked for as well as things we didn’t even know we wanted! The most important thing to us when we started out was that we worked with someone who was easy to talk to and who would take the time to understand us as a brand. Ash made this really easy and was always available to talk through any problems that popped up along the way. He went above and beyond and now probably knows far more about Deadly than he ever really needed to but it means that the final product has made us very happy indeed. As you can probably tell, we can’t recommend Message 205 highly enough."

"My site has just been completely re-worked by Message 205 and it is simply brilliant. Not only did I need a branding overhaul, but the site is now current and more importantly, relevant. Message 205 has taken the time to get to know what I do, what I want, and the areas where I need to focus. He has taken all these elements and designed a site for me that centres on my needs and my clients wishes. At each stage, the consultation process enhanced my confidence, and at every decision point the build stage came in on time; exactly as I was told it would. I cannot recommend Message 205 highly enough."
"Message 205 listened to my company’s website requirements and the result is far beyond what we thought possible. Thoroughly professional, they brought a fresh and dynamic approach providing considered advice and excellent support and we have no hesitation in recommending them."

"Working with Message 205 was such a positive experience, I wish all business working relationships were the same. They 'got' my company and where I wanted it to be online. Their in depth research, clever design skills and wonderfully easy editing suite all popped together within budget and on time is very impressive. There is no doubt that my website has propelled Lupilicious to a new business level and it is now responsible for reeling in 40% of my business and helped grow my team."

" Just a short note, if I may, to thank you very much indeed for the work you have done on the website. It is outstanding. We looked long and hard to find the right company to allow us convene our gatherings and keep in touch: Message 205 exceeded our expectations. Your attention to detail, initiative and integrity has produced a website being talked about the world over by our many members. For me, as I am deployed often on operations, the critical complement to your exemplar design skills is the manner in which you have worked with me; patient, honest, always contactable and faultlessly proactive. I've not experienced this with any other company. Having seen your work up close, several of our former-members in Industry have asked for your details; I have gladly passed them on."
