Full-spectrum creativity for web & ink

First published in 1987, the printed version of this guide for parents & carers is a bit of an institution. All 1000+ listings are now colour-coded, searchable, filterable & pin-pointable in this always up-to-date online version. Design optimised for touchscreens & mobile devices. Includes subscription system with voucher codes facility.  
A multi-language Drupal website for an international membership organisation. We incorporated lots of useful features including member profiles with subscription management, a member directory and an events calendar with registration and payment functions. We also commissioned a short introductory film for the homepage.   
An online events directory designed to promote and facilitate Voluntary Arts Week, an annual celebration of cultural creativity across the UK & ROI. The WordPress-powered website allows users to easily list and find events, with a database that can be filtered by date, category, location & keywords. Also features mobile version optimised for smaller screens. 
A brand identity and responsive Drupal website for a new organisation formed recently by a merger. The client-facing website had to be designed to organise a lot of information in a way that was as easy to navigate as possible. The site also had to be easy to use on a range of mobile devices. Features a client registration and ordering system. 
A brand identity and WordPress website for a Community Interest Company focussed on promoting low carbon solutions. Designed to appeal to a diverse audience, the site was initially only informative but has since grown to incorporate membership applications, a stakeholder forum and a business directory that allows both free & paid listings.
A brand identity and online shop for a jewellery maker from East Lothian. Built using WordPress (and some stunning photographs), the e-commerce platform features customer registration, wishlist, reviews, custom sorting and an integrated payment system. The website also benefits from a newsletter sign-up function with separate database. 


Cassandra Barron, Voluntary Arts Scotland
Starbit have transformed our website from a basic WordPress site into something that not only has the functionality we require but a look and feel that really fits with the ethos of our project. The technical skills, creative approach, flexibility and enthusiasm that Starbit have brought to this job, within the tight budget and time frame we presented them with, is a great endorsement of their work. I look forward to working together into the future.

Cathy Tingle, Edinburgh For Under Fives
With more than 1000 listings, we realised that an online format would suit our guidebook’s contents but didn’t know where to begin. Starbit were able to advise on how we could organise everything and designed a bright, attractive website with really intuitive functions. They also conceived a brilliant online business model. We’re delighted – they’ve achieved so much at an amazing price, and the website has revolutionised our offering.
Kevin Houston, Association of Carbon Professionals
We commissioned Starbit to redesign our website, enrich the content and improve substantially the functionality that the site could provide. Starbit delivered against our objectives and did so on time and within budget. They managed the entire process smoothly and professionally and we have been very pleased with the final result.

Dr Simon Shackley, School of Geosciences
Starbit has worked on several different projects including: establishing a brand & website for a new Community Interest Company, developing an on-line forum for an EU project, and designing a series of innovative infographics. I have been particularly impressed by the consistent high quality of the work done by Starbit, by the punctuality of the delivery and by the overall excellent service, all at a reasonable price. 
Matthew Denwood, AVTRW
Our professional association employed the services of Starbit Limited to re-design and modernise our logo and associated website colour scheme. They provided several working drafts of designs for us to choose from, and were very patient and accommodating during the iterative process of our committee agreeing on a final design. We are extremely happy with the service we received and the end product that we were provided with, and have no reservations in recommending this company.
Marie-Anne Robertson, Biosciences KTN
Starbit has been working with Biosciences KTN since we formed in 2009. They have provided fantastic support and have been indispensible in the process of helping us to establish our identity. A meticulous eye for detail, creative flair and willingness to go that extra mile really shows in their work. Starbit is able to adapt to our often tight timescales and is always patient and flexible. The company is a pleasure to work with and goes to great effort to really understand our organisation and our needs.
Bridget Hilton, British Society of Animal Science
To our delight, Starbit was introduced to us in 2013 and has since redesigned our logos and conference publicity. Starbit took time and effort to understand our business, agreed a schedule and delivered. We are particularly pleased with the annual conference programme which is much more attractive, professional and easier to navigate than our previous in-house version. With confidence I would recommend their services to any professional organisation.
Mike Knox, Livewire Pyrotechnic Systems
With a new product launch on the horizon, I knew that high-quality design was a must. Fortunately, Starbit was recommended to me at just the right time. They have been indispensable in developing a suite of websites for the Livewire product range, adding all of the functionality that I requested and coming up with a great brand for the e-commerce platform. They have also proven themselves very capable in delivering eye-catching and professional printed materials.
Caroline Channing, Ark-Genomics
Starbit has provided us with a personalised service that has exceeded our expectations, delivering more than anticipated, at a very reasonable price. Despite short notice and a tight deadline, Starbit was able to design a comprehensive, high-impact, marketing package which made our staff feel proud to man our exhibition stand at events. In addition, they designed a new logo inspired by one of our technical photos - something we needed but thought we wouldn't have time to develop at that stage.
Maria Baskhanova, Sogdiana Books
Starbit played a massive role in the production of a 344-page catalogue, a crucial aspect of the 2013 exhibition ‘Arts of the Land of Timur’. These guys are a great example of how business should be done – professional, reasonably priced and flexible. Perhaps their best skill is that they know how to listen. They ask the right questions and help shape what seems at first only a vague idea. The team worked closely with us on all aspects of the catalogue, delivering a superior quality finished product. 
Jenny Sully, Jenny Grace Jewellery
Right from the start, Starbit listened and clearly understood what I wanted to acheive with my brand. The result was that the first draft of my logo was exactly what I wanted. My e-commerce website was also completed recently and the feedback I have received has been extremely positive. As a small business, the upfront fixed fees and guaranteed delivery timescales are very useful too. 
Denise Pinto, Origin Events
We were introduced to Starbit by one of our key clients and tasked them to produce a conference booklet. The design was to a very high standard and the feedback from our delegates was extremely positive! Jonathan was great to work with and very flexible on working to our tight deadlines and last minute changes. We are now using Starbit on other client events and I would highly recommend them. They are great value for money and always deliver exactly what you ask for and more. 
Dr Lutz Bunger, Scotland’s Rural College.
I was attracted to Starbit as I saw some design work they did for a conference I attended. It did not take much to convince my project partners to hire them to prodcue our own event brochure. Despite a pressing deadline, the staff at Starbit were always patient, flexible and came in with good ideas and suggestions. The company is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to everybody with design and printing needs.
Andrew Simpson, EasyPyro Ltd.
I am consistently pleased with the speed and quality of the work produced by Starbit. They always work hard to understand my needs before starting a project and never charge any additional fees for redrafts. I've used Starbit for a range of media, from exhibition displays and printed t-shirts through to foreign language flyers and web design.
Dr. James Sinfield, Genecom
Working with Starbit was a pleasure. The service was friendly and prompt, and the work itself was high quality design. In particular, the ideas regarding the design of the logo were excellent and really captured the spirit of the project. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Starbit and their design work.
Will Nicoll, Features Journalist & Writer
I've just seen the site and it's absolutely perfect - literally flawless. How it looked in my head, but far better. Simple, elegant & really stylish. I'm delighted & so grateful for all Starbit's work on this.
Michelle Woodall, Life Planning
Starbit has created a great look for my business. They were able to listen to the sort of look I wanted and made the right changes along the way to create an excellent design. Their way of working has always been friendly and open.
