We design & build websites

From our studio in Chichester we design & build websites for people who are passionate about what they do. We listen, create & care - we are Design 51.

At Design 51, we’re different from your average design agency.

We work with small to medium sized business both locally and nationally. They trust us because we take the time to listen to their requirements, learn about their business, work closely with them throughout the process and deliver websites that really speak volumes.

Bespoke design, always.

Web Design is not a bolt on for us, it's all we do. We live and breathe it and take the time to produce a site that is unique to you.

WordPress development specialists.

We've built a wide range of sites using WordPress, so don't be afraid to ask us about it. We love a challenge.

Small, dedicated team.

One Part design, one part development. We don't overbook ourselves and we dedicate ourselves to you and your project.

Responsive web design

We build our sites using the latest web technologies, we can optimise your site to ensure it works across any device.
