Who are Death By Design?
Founded by brothers Piers and Simon Vaughan in 2007, Death By Design (or dbd if you prefer) are a small team of web designers and developers working in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We work with agencies, companies, brands, and individuals – anyone who needs help achieving an online project, campaign, or presence.
Death By Design was established because we have a passion for the internet that we want to share with like-minded people. It’s simply really, we explore how to get the very best out of the web for the clients who choose to work with us.
What do we actually do?
We can do a lot of different things! We try to tailor each digital solution to match the brief – whatever that might be, but our favourite day-time activities include:
- Website Design & Development
- All things E-Commerce
- Beautiful HTML Emails
- Bespoke WordPress Development
- Event Registration Systems
- Barcode E-Tickets
- Social Media Strategy
- Search Engine Optimisation
- Ongoing Digital Management
We also provide a bespoke white label service, allowing any marketing, creative, or PR agencies to offer our services to their clients. We can seamlessly integrate with existing campaigns and sites, advise on quotes, attend meetings, whatever is required. We can be whatever you need us to be.
You’re in safe hands.
Not a day goes by that we don’t learn something new about the internet and how we can use it to help our clients, but with over 15 years experience of working in creative and digital agencies (including 5 as dbd), we would like to think we’ve been there, done that, and designed a nice t-shirt selling website to prove it.
In the last 12 months…
- Websites managed by Death By Design received over 9.5 million hits, and processed over £4 million in payments.
- Someone visits a dbd managed website every 3 seconds.
- Our HTML Email marketing reached over 1.5 million people
- Over 50,000 people registered onto a seminar, reserved a table or purchased tickets through a dbd data capture system
Why work with dbd?
We’re dedicated to creating great websites, memorable online campaigns and long-term digital solutions. Our service is focussed simply on providing expert advice and an unbeatable level of service.
