"We've used Shine for many years. They're knowledgeable, supportive, efficient and always go that extra mile. A real pleasure to work with"

Hello! We've been creating beautiful things online for happy customers since 1999. But beauty is more than skin deep.
We understand your new site needs to pay its way...
We create individual websites for individuals. We're designers first and foremost, not just developers so we can design you a bespoke site that matches your business perfectly.
We don't just design and build websites though, we can help you to develop a whole e-marketing strategy and with Shine being based close to West Birmingham, you don't have to travel far to get good advice. We help with copy writing and sourcing pictures, as well as maintaining your completed website to ensure it is search engine optimised (SEO) and gets found by Google and other search engines.
Shine designs and manages websites for businesses, charities, companies and organisations across the West Midlands. Shine websites are stand-alone solutions, designed and built to your specific requirements, to grow with the organisation.

Jon is our Creative Director.. He has designed useful things for hundreds of businesses, but is perhaps best known for his pitch on BBC's Dragon's Den.
Dragon James Caan described it as 'the best pitch for the silliest product I have ever seen".
'It was just for fun', or so Jon maintains...
