We are a team of talented designers and developers
Eyes Down is a digital agency working primarily in the charity, membership organisation and subscription sectors.
Planning perfect UX
We place a strong emphasis on project planning and our tried-and-tested stakeholder consultation process ensures that we build websites which address the need of all audiences with measurable success metrics.
Keeping things simple
We get a buzz from simplifying things for our customers, whether that is saving time with a clever tech solution, helping teams engage with their customers or supporters or simply providing clear jargon-free advice.
We have been around long enough to know the importance of planning technology to ensure it is robust and secure. By future-proofing our technology, we protect our customers' investment. We also use open-source tools so that our customers can work with other providers if they prefer. They generally don't!
