Until recently used as the home of the London Cattery Directory, this website belongs to the BeenDesigned Group, a small group of freelance website designers based in Essex, London and Milan who also happen to be friends. Although we had been building websites for several years individually, the BeenDesigned group was formed in 2010 when we were all living and working in Italy, and we've been working together ever since.
We're in the lucky position of being able to get paid for what was once our hobby, and we still design websites as much for fun as for anything else. We do our own work. By that, we mean that we don't accept unlimited orders and then farm them out to random agencies in low-cost centres in Asia, as many agencies now do. Once your order has been accepted you'll be given the contact details of your designer and you'll be able to contact him at any time with any questions you may have. Just as we like to keep our work simple, we like to keep things personal.
We prefer to work with local clients because it helps us offer a genuinely personal touch. If you want a website designer who is willing to come out to you and sit and talk about what you want in your home or office, get in touch with us!
Each new website we create is designed and built by a single designer from start to finish. Our designers listen to what our clients want and need, and take personal pride in ensuring that their designs are effective.
One thing we should probably point out is that we are rarely able to accept work with a very short deadline. Because we do our own work, there is a limit to how much work each designer can accept, and if you need a website for next week, we're probably not the best people to speak to. As an average, we generally say it will take around two weeks to start building your website from the time when you've confirmed your order and given us all the information and material we need. It's very rare that someone is available immediately, although it does happen from time to time. In any case, if you want a professionally-built website and you're prepared a little while for it, then drop us a line and tell us what you need!
