Francis-Dee was set up by me, Nikki Stock. I named the company after my Nan and Mum, two of my biggest inspirations. I trained as Textiles and Graphic Designer many years ago at Winchester School of Art. I had always worked in Fashion and textiles prior to having my children, designing beautiful prints to sell worldwide.
I discovered I had a passion for all things wedding related when I was planning my wedding. From this came Francis Dee Bespoke Wedding Stationery. As my stationery became increasingly popular I started to get press coverage. I knew I needed a website that would showcase my designs. Being a creative person who thrives on learning I taught myself how to design a website by reading lots and letting my creative mind wander.
I realised I had stumbled on something that not only did I love but I was pretty good at, thanks to my graphics background. From that moment I realised this was something I wanted to pursue, so I went back to college and started learning again. I loved it! The fun with web designing is its forever changing and there is always something new to be learned. That was quite a few years back now. Since then I have had two lovely children and have been working as a web designer under the name of Net Toast part time. The girls are now starting school and I am returning properly to the working world. So I have decided to go back to the Name Francis-Dee for both of my ventures as it is a much more sentimental name that I have a lot of passion for, it so I hope this will shine through in my design.
I like to build fun, crisp, clean and easy to navigate websites. Great design is my specialty, however I understand the importance of web optimisation, functionality and customer service.
Creating a great website requires time and attention to detail. I believe that hard work and creative passion is what is needed to give you an original design for your site that you will love and will become an asset for your business.
Through close collaboration with you, I will identify your company’s individual requirements. I will then design you a truly bespoke website to suit all of your business needs.
I have a strong creative background, so do not worry your website and artwork will clearly stand out among your competitors.
There is no job too small for us and we are capable of producing anything from a hand full of newsletters to a wonderful bespoke site to meet all of your needs. As it is just me you can rest assured that if you have any problems or questions you will speak to me directly at all times.
