Hello! My name is Steve Malpas, the man behind Blueygreen.
So a little about me. I live in south Wales though I'm originally from Bristol. I've been a digital designer in various disciplines since the mid 90s, experiencing everything from interactive design to branding, print design to web development. I've worked in the education sector, corporate in-house departments and dedicated design studios, with clients ranging from small start-ups to large blue chip companies.
In 2002 I moved to Newport and launched Blueygreen. The original aim was to provide affordable web design to local businesses, though the company soon attracted clients from right across the UK and the boundary between local and national has now largely dissolved.
To say that web design has changed since 2002 would be an understatement. Entire new industries have sprung up, others have fallen by the wayside, and the profession has been transformed beyond all recognition. The potential of what a website can achieve - and what its users expect - has never been greater.
I work from home. It sidetracks the daily commute and the expensive sandwich. More importantly it ensures that you're only paying for design and development, not ground rent, cleaning staff and water coolers. It also means I can build a more direct relationship with my clients, really getting to know them and their business rather than disappearing behind project managers and unbendable workplace constraints.
My aim is nothing less than to see you succeed. I work hard to create design solutions that deliver value and surpass your expectations. Design is about more than just making something look nice. It's about shaping the user experience so that your goals can be achieved. Whether you're a new business looking to make a running start, or an established firm in need of some creative digital flair, I'd love to hear from you.
PS. I'm always keen to discover new collaborators too - so if you're a specialist, feel free to introduce yourself!
