Who are Happy by Design?

Happy by Design is owned by two women in web design – Pandora & Jo.

We’ve been creating websites for over 20 years and absolutely love what we do. We also have plenty of experience in Graphic Design, Digital Marketing and Social Media, and qualifications and certifications to boot.

We met and bonded instantly, over a shared love of Studio Ghibli, pints, and beautiful clean design.

Now, we get to work together, drink coffee together and create engaging, functional, inspiring designs, to help small businesses to really stand out.

How can we help?

Let us take the headache out of the techy side of promoting your business online. We will always communicate in plain English, and help you to understand each step of the process, keeping you in the loop as we go, to ensure that you are completely happy. If you’d like to learn how to edit your own website going forward, we can provide step-by-step training, to empower you to take on some of those techy bits yourself! We’re approachable, knowledgeable, and passionate about what we do.

As small business owners ourselves, we appreciate that your business is your baby. Supporting small businesses to grow, evolve, and succeed is at the heart of what we do. We want to see your online presence reach it’s true potential and we root for, and work for, that success. We’re sure our love of creating great and effective websites for business will shine through – in our care and attention to detail, and in the successful results. You’ll see those results for yourself as people compliment you on your new website and as your online audience grows!
