Nathan Hornby

I've been designing and building websites for over 12 years, and web apps (SaaS) for a little less; with a varied, well-rounded skillset that covers the full process, and a passion for what I do.

Discover my background

I've been hooked on design and development since Christmas Day 1998, when my parents went above and beyond and bought me my first PC. Most of my early design and development work was in Flash (I'm really very sorry…) but it was an interaction design unit during my degree that gave me a honed interest in cognitive psychology, and how it can be applied to design. I even started a successful online retail business while at university, which later sold to its largest competitor.

"Nathan was an excellent student — intelligent, applied and enthusiastic. It was clear from teaching him that he had a really bright future working in digital media."

As soon as I graduated I moved to London and joined an agency as a web designer working in the online gaming market. It was here that I developed important persuasive design skills that led me to Rank Interactive, the in-house team that's responsible for the online incarnations of Mecca Bingo, Grosvenor/G Casino and Blue Square sports betting. After spending a few years in the online gaming industry I accepted a new challenge in the retail sector, at Ocado, where I worked as a UX Designer on both internal projects and customer-facing properties.

"Nathan is a talented designer with a natural flair and appreciation for all things web."

November 2nd, 2011  —  Paul Sebborn, UI Developer at Ocado

Back in 2011 I decided I wanted more creative control over my work and so helped form a design and branding agency known as 3Degrees (later Duo Agency), based in Portsmouth, England. At the start of 2016 I went solo, with my focus shifting to helping people in a freelance and contract capacity.

"[Nathan] is an accomplished digital designer and has great depth of knowledge that can be applied when working on UX solutions."

Life story over, let's see what I'll do for you…

I produce wireframes and research to make sure what I'm doing is the right thing for you and your users.

I create meticulous user experiences that look great and do their job. They’ll be usable, accessible and convert.

I code responsive front-ends (the bit you see) and snappy back-ends (the bit you don’t). All well documented and semantic.

I’ll also provide long-term support and SEO services to help grow your website or SaaS, and help it realise its full potential.

If I can deliver value then I want to work with you; and if I can't, I'll tell you.

Pssst… I particularly like working with charities, community projects and non-profits, I'll even give you a discount.

I’ve provided one or more of these services to dozens of clients; from every industry and at every stage in their journey. Here are some recent projects

Stubbington Ark website

RSPCA Stubbington Ark

Stubbington Ark's website was dated and difficult to navigate. For the new website I produced the IA documentation, managed the design & front-end development, and integrated the CMS.
