Owner Hedley Phillips has worked in IT for over 20 years. Starting his career back in the days of dial-up when websites loaded line-by-line before moving to London to work for a web design & hosting company in Bow in East London.
Other roles have included working for the BBC on their Bitesize website, creating interactive touch based front end displays for Mobile Phone EPOS terminals for Hutchison 3G, building interactive Maths Flash games for Cambridge University NRICH Project and various server and hardware support roles including Zonal EPOS terminals (if you’ve been in a pub in Edinburgh, you’ve seen their tills).
Digital Essence is a small Web Design & Hosting company based in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders close to Peebles & Galashiels. Born in 2009 with the aim to produce good quality websites, provide excellent website hosting and build a great relationship with our customers.
That relationship with our customers is so important to us and drives the way we do business. Honesty and integrity are our core values and if we don’t think a product or service is suitable for you, we will advise you, even if this means us perhaps losing your your business.
We specialise in designing and developing WordPress websites, Social Media Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation for small to medium sized businesses and have built up a varied portfolio over the years.
Our website packages range from our brand new “Essentials £399” package designed to provide the essentials that new or startup up businesses require all the way to bespoke, hand crafted sites and Ecommerce sites.
While the majority of our clients are local, we do have some as far afield as London, Kent, Surrey & the USA. All of whom have benefited from working with us so why not give us a call to see what we can do for your business?
When not developing websites, Hedley is a keen member of the Lothian 4×4 Response group and a trainee member of Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue.
