How did Spi-des-ign start?

Way back in 2006, I started doing freelance work in the evenings and weekends outside of my full-time job in Cambridge. At the time, Kelly and I were living in Wicken in the countryside, next to a big crop field (HUGE MISTAKE). What comes with a crop field? Crop Spiders, of course, all of the spiders decided that Kelly and I's house was the one for them. 


So from that thought, it was best to give my freelancing business a proper brand rather than just a name. After brainstorming lots of different ideas for web design, I decided that I would use the idea of using my fear of spiders as a play on words with spider (web) and design, turning it into Spi-des-ign. Then use a spider as part of the logo to go with the name as part of the whole brand. 

From there it has grown into the business it is today.
