About us and why we do, what we do
Established by Simon Bannister in 2008, ItchyFinger is a digital design agency based in Bristol. We don’t just design websites, we have the expertise and experience to build them from the ground up.
At the heart of our ethos is the belief that great website design is about more than just aesthetics. In this way we see design in much the way that Steve Jobs did when he said this:
“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”
Our years of experience in coding allows us to design and develop the backend of your site as well at the frontend. The end result is a website that doesn’t just look fantastic but is reliable, user friendly and fully optimised for search engines.
A Website that Works for You
Of course, we understand that every business is different. It’s why we’ve put flexibility at the heart of everything we do, allowing us to cater to a whole range of requirements and budgets. Our team has a wealth of expertise and we are specialists in ground up web development as well as the customisation of content management systems like WordPress and Joomla.
Bristol is not only a fantastic place to live and work but it is one of the largest and fastest growing creative industry hubs outside of London.
In January 2015 the Creative Industries Council ranked the city alongside Brighton and Manchester as having the best growth prospects outside of London. According to the Department for Culture Media and Sport, creative industry growth in the South West region between 2013-14 was 21.5%, outpacing all other regions, including London, which experienced just 8.6% growth in the same period.
With Bristol driving so much of this growth, we can’t think of a better place for companies to come and do business.
