About Us

We’re a creative digital agency based in Cardiff that specialise in web design and Magento ecommerce, we create digital campaigns and bespoke applications for a variety of clients both nationally and internationally.

Since the company's inception in 2006 we have been creating and communicating clear, compelling brand and marketing messages across a rang of media outlets.

As expert web developers, we can help start-ups through to established businesses improve the look of current web designs and audit the functionality of current ecommerce websites. Many clients have approached us with a blank canvas and given us creative license to provide professional web design and magento ecommerce websites in their entirety. We champion magento ecommerce as industry standard as it provides a level of user/admin control that cannot be obtained with other platforms.

We are coding experts with a team boasting decades of experience in professional web application development – our speciality is PHP and MySQL-based applications. We aren’t the types to get locked into a single solution, so we tailor web platforms depending on our clients’ requirements.

Our creative concepts will set you apart from the competition, while building solid relationships with your target audience by delivering an experience, rather than just providing a product or service.

We have a truly great team of magento developers and web designers (well, we would say that!). We only work with the best, the most brilliant forces of creative, multi-skilled goodness…here they are…

The Team

Michaela Hinton


Michaela is here to manage the Big Eye Deers team and ensure all projects are on course and ready to wow.

With a background in Media and PR, Michaela oozes creativity and her copywriting skills are second to none.

Whether you require a project update, a big idea, or even a cheeky chin wag about how to make your marketing even more spectacular, Michaela is just a call (email or tweet) away.

Lionel Deer


Having escaped ‘captivity/rehab’ (we’re not sure which!), Lionel Deer was ostracised by society for having the body of a human man and the head of, well, quite an unfortunate looking deer.

Welcomed with un-judging, open arms to the BED HQ, he has become a permanent rubbery headed fixture and general mischief maker.

Madder than a box of frogs, Lionel keeps the team on their toes, and a day at the office is far from predictable when he’s about.

Check out his blogs for a mind-boggling view on all things weird and wonderful.

Zak Grindle


Zak Grindle is our resident web development guru, working on a range of projects utilising PHP, CodeIgniter, MySQL, and jQuery.

With a First Class Honours Degree in Computer Science from Cardiff University, Zak is our go-to developer, building bespoke content management systems, Facebook applications and anything else we throw his way.

Zak's interests aren't all computer-based, however; when the desk shackles are free, he spends his weekends DJing and surfing amid Wales’ spectacular beaches.

Steve Flanagan
