Working with businesses and organisations of all sizes from SMEs and start-ups to PLCs and Non-Profits or Membership organisations, Daykin & Storey have full-service capabilities, but specialise in designing and delivering medium- and long-term digital marketing strategies for our clients.

Our marketing team is ably supported by Daykin & Storey’s design types and build geeks. Designers take care of creative design, print (business stationery, exhibition materials, leaflets, magazines, books), illustration, animation, video production and website design. Developers, meanwhile work across software, business process and website development, developing applications for touchscreen devices, software-as-a-service hosted apps and a range of online projects: eCommerce, content managed, mobile/responsive or purpose-built and programmed websites on a number of popular Content Management Systems from WordPress to SilverStripe, Magento to Lemonstand.
