We set up Purple Pelican Designs in 2002 for local businesses in Bristol, England, to provide them with a professional website design service that didn’t cost the earth. We’ve been supporting them ever since, and we now have clients throughout the UK and in Mainland Europe and North America. Most of our clients come to us when they are starting up in business for the first time. They've got a lot to think about. We can help.


Design is at the heart of what we do. Good design is about choosing and making well-engineered things that look good and work well. It also means keeping control of costs. We pride ourselves in finding cost-effective solutions that will work for you over time. We'd like to meet you, get to understand your business, and then work with you to design a solution that really meets your needs. Our highly personalised approach couples flair with professionalism to produce results which delight our customers. Funky or business-like, complex or simple, we think we’ll be able to meet your needs.

One stop shop

There are a lot of people out there who can build you a website. There are quite a lot of people who can help you with image and branding. And I.T. support? OK, maybe that’s not so easy to find. Purple Pelican Designs is unusual because we bring all these things together in a one-stop shop.

We're small

We are completely unembarrassed to be small. Most of our clients are small businesses like us, so we think it's no bad thing that we understand the pains and pleasures of life at this end of the food chain. Let's meet! We do great coffee (or tea if you prefer!), and we promise not to bamboozle you with technobabble.
