" I'm far too busy to look at new products
- can't you see I've got a battle to fight! "
Established by ex-RAF aerospace technician Roy Sinclair in 1987, Sinclair Design started life as a small graphic design consultancy in London. It soon grew into a corporate-level strategic design consultancy with long-term clients such as the NHS at local and regional levels throughout Kent.
In 1996 the World Wide Web emerged as a serious business communication tool and the firm found itself building on existing programming skills to hand-code dynamic websites. At that time there were generally two kinds of people producing websites: designers who could not code; and coders who could not design. Work flooded in as Sinclair Design found itself in a fairly unique position of being able to hand-code stable, fast websites that also looked good and were easy to use.
By 2001 it was clear that the business's future lay firmly at the cutting edge of web technology, developing mission-critical web applications on the consultancy's own private cloud of high-end servers. So it focused on its new-found niche of designing, developing and hosting innovative, cloud-based business solutions such as Site System, Hotel System and Circuit System, all of which were many years ahead of their time when launched.
“Sinclair Design has been a central partner to our business since 2001. They provide an excellent website solution that not only reaches customers outside of our traditional geographical trading area, but doubles as a useful sales tool for our shop staff. We have found Sinclair Design to be professional and innovative, and have no hesitation in fully endorsing their services and expertise.”
“Here at Buckmore, we pride ourselves on being able to provide the best in karting experiences for all age groups, be that with corporate events for some of the biggest companies in the UK, or young, aspiring F1 drivers. At a time when we were looking for a more innovative method of managing our business, Sinclair Design was able to direct our business model and branding, bringing together inspirational design and technical excellence.”
“It's great to have such a personal service for such an integral part of our business. Our Site System websites are incredibly easy to utilise and we get plenty of compliments from customers too. Roy and the team at Sinclair Design have been a major factor in the success of Mister Loft Ladder.”
