With more than 20 years of experience in business, Motley.co.uk understands, first and foremost, the fundamentals of good, solid business practice. In conjunction with an established business sense, we are a multi-disciplined creative team able to draw on a spectrum of knowledge and experience, which gives us a complete understanding that each project not only looks great but, produces something of value and of lasting quality.
The first job of any brief for us is to understand your business - without this, how can a solution be produced that is focused on YOUR business? Creativity is all well and good, but if you don't marry it together with solid business understanding and practice, its like having a gorgeous brochure that you put in a drawer and leave it - it isn't doing what it's supposed to.
With our business acumen, understanding and knowledge we are able to gain an insight into the true needs of your business and ensure that the website, logo etc. is doing what it is intended - generating new leads, sales and new business, just what the doctor ordered in these tough times!
Whether you are looking for a spring clean for your website or branding, or a bespoke solution, you can be assured that we are here to help you every step of the way in a language that you CAN understand.
We are well equipped to advise you and deliver all manner of graphics and digital mediums to help you stand out from the crowd.

We needed a bespoke "all singing and dancing" website for our new business and Motley assured us that this was no problem! We made many demands during the build of our site and they worked exceptionally hard to accommodate us and the result is outstanding. We are thrilled to say that Motley has certainly stepped up to the mark and we cannot recommend them more highly.Oliver Wilkins from The Dorset Foodies
As the founder of Motley.co.uk, and with more that 20 years experience in business, my approach to web development is to ensure that as a tool, business sense is combined with creativity. Although this is not unique, it is by no means an approach that many web development companies are able to boast of.
A proud nerd and self confessed gadget lover, I have been 'playing' with computers since the days of the Sinclair ZX80 and taught myself web development back in the web's early mists of time in the early 90's. I successfully combined my love for tech and the internet with a 'proper' job in the financial markets in London and around the globe moving down to Dorset in 1999 and setting up an outdoor equipment import business.
All the while I maintained my love and interest of all things techy and relished the opportunity to create Motley.co.uk into the web development and graphic design company it is today.
Lucky enough to love what I do and get a kick out of helping our clients, my family are the most important aspect of my life without who's support Motley would not even have been possible.close
I started working as a Graphic Designer in 1998 with a national motorcycle and mobile phone accessories company dealing with all aspects of the company’s promotional material including catalogues, product design & packaging, EPOS promotional displays and company stands for national exhibitions as well as the full range of company stationery. The work also included licenced branding for global companies including Moto GP & Budweiser. When I left the company a few years later I was head of their design department. After a year’s sabbatical in Australia I returned to work as the Production Manager for a monthly national sailing magazine with responsibility for all aspects of the magazine design. This was followed by some time in a design studio near Southampton.
For the past nine years I have been working as a designe,r mainly of websites, but also as a graphic designer. I have worked on a wide range of projects from the basic concepts to final product in a number of industries. This diversity of work has enabled me to gain a very good level of experience across the complete spectrum of modern media platforms.
I believe that establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with clients is fundamental in producing work that is both satisfying to them and has a lasting quality.close
I started working in digital marketing back in 2000 when my interest in the internet got the better of me! Having worked for a progressive American Oil company in the 1990s who adopted the latest technology, then working in the Defence sector, it was time for a change.
I found myself on an HTML course learning how to hand code websites, which led me to a job with a leading jobs board, where I helped develop a new French branch of the business. From there I went to work for a digital marketing agency in Brighton, honing my skills with much larger projects for News International, Thistle Hotels, Airmiles and The Ramblers Association amongst others.
Looking back, it’s interesting to see how much has changed since the early days of online marketing. In the late 90s/early 2000s there were a number of search engines out there that were in regular use (remember AltaVista, Lycos and Ask Jeeves) and SEO was simplistic and very experimental compared to the sophisticated technology that is used today in web development and online marketing.
My belief has always been that the principles of online marketing have never changed: creating a high-quality website and using best practice marketing techniques for long term, sustainable results.close
