What we can do for you...


We LOVE all aspects of design and our passion for creating strong, suitable imagery ensures that your website will look as good as you are. Helping you to convey your message with style.


We help all our clients to send out their message to as wide an audience as possible. We can do this by using social media, email marketing and through printed promotional material.

Not only do our websites look good, but they work well on all devices too. We know that a large portion of your audience will be accessing your site on a tablet or phone so we design for those platforms too.


We build strong relationships with our clients through ongoing guidance and support. We are always available to help out with all creative and technical matters.

Just a quick note to let you know how delighted we all are with the websites and back-up that you provided for us. We have had many complimentary comments from clients about the attractiveness and functionality of the sites, and it is a great advantage now that we can update the sites very quickly and simply ourselves.

Hi Stuart, Just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful job Black Hen have made of the website for our holiday apartment. It's very professional, looks great and I've had lots of positive feedback. I love the layout and design - you obviously put a lot of thought into it. I also appreciate all your help after it went live too. It's great to know that you are only an email away and on-hand for advice and emergencies.I'd definitely recommend you. Thanks again. All the best
