After working within Project Management for a considerable time, Ruth has since moved across to look after the Financial and HR aspects of the business. Her professional, dedicated and friendly approach all help with her role of keeping the inner workings of Attitude Design running smoothly.

Dan is a geek with attitude. He ensures all the brilliant designs work across the web. Most of the time he is drinking large quantities of Red Bull and discussing the latest Apple technologies. Some people suggest he is part machine but we know the truth... he is actually a cyborg.

Scotty

Scotty is a cool, calm and collected geek. When passing his desk, which looks like a NASA mission control room, you will often see reams of code displayed which mean little to us mere mortals. Scotty looks after a lot of the web development ensuring that the technical side of things runs with the precision of a quest into space. "Beam us up Scotty"...

Dan is a friendly and enthusiastic member of our team. He has a classic case of the munchies, spending the day with packets of mini chedders on his desk. Of course work comes first... he is on the ball and always has an eye for possible opportunities for you and for us! He is a key member of Attitude Design and brings his management and organisational skills to the table along with superb recipes for iced coffees and a cool atmosphere.

The client love

Ref. design aesthetics the app is tip-top, Attitude’s acumen here is well established. And this has been lauded by pretty much every app user I’ve spoken to.

Asim Ilyas, Debtology

Just looked at pre and post redesign stats in google analyitics, 87% increase in site traffic.  It’s not all about numbers though, it’s quality of site viewers, we’ve gained clients like ‘Iceland Foods’, ‘Debenhams’ and ‘M&S’ directly from the website

Mike Hunter, Better Languages | Nottingham UK

You guys have really done a superb job and the brand is proving to be really successful.

Cathy Rawson, Galleries of Justice | Nottingham UK

What makes them so good? Where do we start… Ideas… Matt and the team love ideas and get as excited about them just as much as we do. Attitude deliver. And they deliver in a personalised way, with Matt in particular making sure the design elements were to our satisfaction and exactly what we wanted. We love Attitude Design and we look forward to working with them on IncomeMAX over the coming years. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

Lee Healey, IncomeMAX | London UK

We liked the message driven approach which Attitude suggested as well as the work they completed on our calls to action – highly important areas of the site which Attitude have got spot on! The launch of the new design has been a great success, we have seen an increase in enquires and are convinced that the design which Attitude produced has helped us to reach new areas of the market.

Nathan Hill-Haimes, Managed Comms | UK

We wanted a standout logo. Attitude Design delivered to perfection. On time, with minimum fuss, optimum communication and maximum results. All via email from the other side of the world.

Kevin Yaxley, Airways Hotels | Bootless Bay Golf Club | Papua New Guinea

The project was handled professionally and within timescales, the end result is great, its looks good and works well and my customers are all very complimentary. I would not hesitate to recommend Attitude Design.

Teresa Benham, Hens For Pets UK

Right from our first contact with the Attitude team, we’ve found them professional, prompt and cheerful. In fact, they’re a dream to have on board, compared with other design and web agencies we’ve dealt with.

Sally Middlemiss, Rutland Cycling | UK

We love your work Attitude!  Very friendly service to boot.  Looking forward to working with you again.
