Who are Eighty3 Design Ltd?
Hi there, welcome to
EIGHTY3
; we are glad you could join us!

We are a proud Black Country business specialising in design and marketing, and we aim to apply the best of our skills, experience and enthusiasm to your challenges. We are passionate, positive, problem-solving creatives, and we love what we do. Ok, that is a lot of adjectives, but you get the picture…

Who?

We are Dan and Rebecca, and we started Eighty3 way back in 1999. Young(er) and idealistic, we had a keen desire to bring fresh new ideas and solutions to the ever-changing world of design. Web design was a relatively new industry back then, so we wanted to bring a holistic approach to branding and enable our clients to get the most out of their websites using systems and automation.

Over the years, we’ve had the chance to work with some fantastic people and businesses, from huge multi-nationals and famous brands to sole traders and start-ups (we’ve all gotta start somewhere!).

And now?

In 2018, we solidified our ideals and moved into new premises — an old industrial steel building in the heart of the Black Country. It may no longer be a steelworks, but we like to think we can match the heat and hard work the building is used to! And we are pretty pleased to be supporting the industrial heritage of the area too.

After all of our experiences, we still have a genuine passion for design, and our mission hasn’t changed: we want to add value. Not just to our customers’ business, brand, or website, but to their lives. We’d all be happier if work was easier; that’s why we want to know and understand our clients and their needs — so we can succeed together.

A box of frogs?

We may be deft designers, marketing magicians and mad as a box of frogs, but we love our jobs. We’re a close-knit bunch that believes work shouldn’t be boring. We like to have fun, but we’re professionals too, and we get the job done. Scroll down to meet the team…

We are Eighty3 Design Ltd.

Rebecca

Director/Development Manager

Rebecca oversees all aspects of web development that goes on at Eighty3 and is our go-to brain for any technical issue that needs to be solved. She can link up your third-party provider, help you to integrate your social media or create a custom system to collect all the data from your amazing custom Landing Page.

She drinks far too much tea and often forgets to turn the radio on when she comes in on a morning.

Describe what you do in no more than five words?
Write words to make pictures.

Favourite beverage?
Beer! More specifically, real ales, even more specifically Enville Ale.

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
Roy Orbison.

Dan

Director/Design Manager

Dan is usually the first port-of-call when anyone contacts Eighty3. The friendly-gentle giant is passionate about finding the correct creative solution to a client's problems, making sure he really gets to the bottom of what makes their project tick. He has a wealth of experience in branding and design, working in many areas of the design industry before making Eighty3 his home.

Dan can't leave any of the office sweet treats alone and can easily be swayed by a nice packet of biccys.

No one cared who I was before I put on the beard.

If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would it be and why?
I would be a badger - because you don't mess with a badger.

What is one of your favourite quotes?
"Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." - Scott Hall.

Sian

Executive Assistant

Sian oversees the management of the office and makes sure the team (mainly the two wayward directors) know what they are doing and have everything they need. She supports clients with their projects and ensures they are welcomed into the Eighty3 family and is a constant point of contact with regards to their project.

She surrounds herself with creepy things and always has the office heating set to scorch.

Catwoman, great outfit and puts people in their place. She is a total badass!

What is your favourite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
October - All about Halloween.

Emily

Designer

Emily brings an exciting new perspective to Eighty3. With a keen eye for colour and detail, she produces stunning brand identities for a range of projects. Her video skills are top-notch, producing amazing motion graphics for multiple platforms.

She is far too smiley and indulges the oldies in the office with all of their silliness.

Rain on a window.

Playing Games (Legend of Zelda/Animal Crossing).
