Beautiful, responsive, dynamic websites.

Oooh, Shiny...

Big Fat Who??

BigFatHand. We are a small team of designers based in the UK and Spain, lead by Matt Williams. Our goal is to deliver excellent web sites and apps, design/build and design/print services to businesses and individuals who want plain speech, jargon-free consultations and stunning results. Technology should be there to help everybody, without seeming like some sort of black art.

With a background spanning almost twenty years as technology providers, troubleshooters and trainers, and over twenty years designing for print and web, we are uniquely placed to offer services from design to training, to source providers for those things we cannot build in-house and to provide you, as an individual or company, with a painless route to making technology work for you.

Stuff We Made

Jon Jones

BigFatHand is proud to have worked for over ten years producing publicity materials and copy for the celebrated Birmingham artist, Jon Jones.
Jones's critically acclaimed work is striking, beautiful, and meticulous in its research and attention to detail. Obviously this meant that our designs and output had a very high bar to meet.
In Jon's own words, our work was "second to none... well beyond my original expectations"

ID Capture Ltd

BigfatHand were tasked with building a Wordpress template from the ground up, to showcase ID Capture's cutting edge data collection and analysis tools for the Health Industry.
Not only did the end result need to be dynamic enough to easily incorporate new products, it also had to follow a pixel-to-pixel design brief from their print design team, and be easily updated by the staff at ID Capture.

Citizen's Advice, Sandwell

Citizen's Advice Sandwell contacted BigFatHand after a recent rebranding, looking to update their online presence and switch from a static to a dynamic site.
Following strict branding guidelines, we brought their website right up to date, making it a valuable, dynamic portal for Citizen's Advice users, with information, social media feeds and live chat with Citizen's Advice advisors.
BigFatHand also offered training for CAB staff to ensure that they felt at home using the new technology.

Hills Counselling

Hills Counselling asked us to design a single-page website for their private practice that broke out of the usual standard counselling moulds of dry emotionless facts or generic wispy new age imagery,
Owner and practitioner Beverly Hills wanted an inviting, vibrant and modern site, that clearly answered any questions her clients may have without being pompous or overwhelming. "Clients should feel welcomed, informed and ready to take the next step."

...knocked my socks off!I didn't know what I wanted but I knew what I didn't want. I approached BFH with a vague logo scrawled on a napkin that looked like something from a 3rd year crappy art project! BFH intuitively knew what I was trying to do and not only devised the beautifully clean logo but also held my hand through the whole process from dream to reality of promoting my business with a tailor-made, professional website that knocked my socks off! Beverley Hills, Hills Counselling.
The quality of work is second to noneBigFatHand consistently produce an exceptional product on a limited budget and time scale. For the last ten years, BigFatHand produced all the artwork and copy for my exhibition publicity materials. BFH also setup my website which not only had fantastic feedback but has also paved the way for me to be signed to a renowned national gallery. I imagine that I must be a very fussy and awkward client to produce work for in that I want people to have the same investment and passion as I have when producing my paintings. Matt always has. I feel very relaxed whilst working with BFH, as I know that however bizarre or unfeasible an idea I may have, they will listen and develop it into a finished reality and usually something well beyond my originalexpectations.)

... would highly recommend to others.BigFatHand were recommended to me when searching for someone to develop our website. I contacted Matt with a brief overview, and everything else was smooth and painless. Matt understood straight away what we wanted and needed and built a professional and very functional website. Matt took me and some of my staff through basic training on managing the website ourselves and was always on hand if we got stuck. All queries were responded to very quickly and we are really pleased with the results. I wouldn't hesitate in working with BigFatHand again and would highly recommend them to others. V.
