We’re Designworks…

a marketing, design and web development agency based in Kendal. Our range of creative services, in digital and print, offer solutions for website design and development – including WordPress CMS and ecommerce – design for print, branding, marketing and advertising.

From our office in the Lake District, Cumbria we have clients across the UK – in Manchester and London – and into Europe, Africa and Central America. They include businesses, charities and organisations from the public and private sector. We provide them with a creative and considered approach to design, as well as an informed and intelligent methodology to web development and marketing.

Our experience spans all sectors and includes: branding a Local Enterprise Partnership, developing a website for luxury holiday cottages, conceptualising ads for a technology firm, creating an identity for an auction house, promoting a street art festival, designing a website for a predator experience, producing a Council’s magazine, building a membership based ecommerce website for a cycle association, managing the production of an attraction guide and modifying an ecommerce website for a fabric designer.

Designworks started trading in 1984 and since then we have worked with a range of clients. We have a client list of over 650 customers and we currently host over 250 websites.
