Explore our companies history, since it’s humble beginnings in a bedroom back in 2008.
At the age of just 14, Haydn Bowley (founder) designed his first website for his local GP surgery in 2008 after his dad was struggling to use it.
Won first logo competition
By aged 15, Haydn had won his first logo competition, designing a logo for the 14-10 Partnership at Broxtowe Council.
Built our first Website Editor
While in college, Haydn taught himself new languages such as PHP and MySQL, which enabled him to create his first website editor, which allowed clients to focus on editing content without affecting their themes.
First office space
In 2014, SWA Design official moved out the bedroom and into PinnPoint through meeting Trevor, who is still one of our clients ’til this day.
First International Client
Just 7 years after starting, we acquired our first international client, all the way from the USA while doing some work in London, UK.
Acquired SC Marketing
After working closely with Steph from SC Marketing since 2015, we found our skills perfectly aligned and so we joined together to form a partnership under the SWA Design brand.
10 Years of the impossible
Wow, 10 years have flown by before we knew it. We’re so proud looking back at what we’ve achieved and celebrated the only way we could, with a re-brand to a much cleaner, grown-up look and feel.
We switched our hosting provider to a company that is powered directly by 100% renewable energy from source to the datacentre. This means that all our clients can be proud that their online presence is being powered by nature itself.
We became an LLP
Speaking of growing up, we changed to an LLP to unlock more opportunities than before!
Our next milestone
We want to achieve 100 hosting customers!
