The Phoenix Desk

We are everything you’d expect from a smaller agency: flexible and personable whilst having the real depth of local knowledge to make a difference. We are a passionate and experienced team that looks after our clients with care. Results and performance are a given, and responsiveness comes as standard. We work together to deliver handmade, client-centric solutions. We’re a small friendly agency made up of web designers, web developers and project managers based in West Sussex. We’ve worked on a wide range of websites, so we know that your web design goals can be achieved. Of course, you expect us to be “tech heads”, but we also know how to talk to people :-). We use technology to communicate ideas, make interactions meaningful and help you build relationships with your audience. Large or small, we’ve undertaken a diverse range of web design projects from mission critical apps to e-commerce shops and everything in between.

Chris Clarke
Chris ClarkeLead Developer
Hello there, I’m Chris and I’ve been absolutely fascinated by computers and the internet for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid I was more interested in how computer games worked than in actually playing them – a true geek! I’m passionate about a great user experience and delivering great results for our clients.
Some fun facts: I am lucky to have an amazing wife and two very grown up daughters and I love to barbecue, even in the depths of winter – my speciality is Rib-eye Steak for Christmas Eve.

Hey, I’m Astrid and I’m here to help you through your whole digital journey. I am a graduate of London College of Fashion with a background in web design and social media marketing. I can not only help build your website, logo and graphics but can also ensure that the right people are seeing it. I believe the core to any successful business is having a strong brand, so let’s start there and get people knowing and loving your brand.
A little fun fact: I am dog obsessed and have a pug named Binky .
Harry Martin
Harry MartinHead of Video
Hi, I’m Harry and a confessed gadget freak. I have inherited a love of photography and videography from my dad who is also a photographer. Growing up around a camera seems to have rubbed off on me. Personally I believe a picture speaks far more than a thousand words, and a video…even more so! Video is definitely the next level for your customers, your websites and your company branding – miss it and you’re missing out. A well shot and edited video can really engage your audience like nothing else!
A little fun fact: I like to spend my spare time exploring Sussex on an electric skateboard.
PhoenixTalent Scout
Woof, bark, woof, woof – no, I’m only kidding. I’m Phoenix, the name behind the brand.
A little fun fact: In Greek mythology a Phoenix is a bird that not only lives for a long time but can also be born again from the ashes of its predecessor.
