Our history

Blue Ice Website Design was formed on 19th October 2008 by Stuart Smitheringale whilst living in Thorpe Thewles, Stockton-on-Tees, in the North East of England.

Stuart says: I had just left IBM, where I was employed as a business development specialist on their graduate training scheme. Wanting to start my own business providing carbon footprint audits; I needed a website and set about building one.

Deciding that I was now a web developer, I advertised in a local magazine and soon found my first paying clients to work with. I really loved the creative side of web development and learning to code meant that I could bring my creations to life.

Over the years I have developed my skillset as a front-end developer: writing code to a high standard (HTML, CSS, JS, PHP). And I have considerable experience with WordPress, SEO, branding, graphic design, web accessibility, UX/UI design etc.

Today, I no longer work alone: I’m supported by an incredibly talented team of graphic designers, photographers and copywriters. Together we build high quality websites that get results for our clients at a fair price.
