Deep Blue Sky
Why we engineer success…
We are a team of experts driven by one common goal:
“To engineer the commercial success of our clients through the marriage of software, design and user experience.”
Today our work forms the operational foundation of over 50 thriving businesses throughout the United Kingdom, United States & Europe and as we grow we continue to engineer success with some of the world’s largest and smallest companies across many different sectors spanning education, global development, gaming, recruitment, construction, pharmaceuticals, FMCG & and travel.
Our breadth of experience allows us to cross—pollinate creative and technical ideas that inspire our client’s growth.
We are your future…
We are only good at what we do because we understand the need to work at it constantly.
We practice, we talk, we question, we learn, we teach.
We will use our creativity, our passion for usability and our experience of technology to bring order, routine and beauty to the way you communicate with your customers and the way your business operates.
Beautiful, effective creativity…
Deep Blue Sky believes that creativity is only effective when it is objective so we have developed a clear process for brand, website and interface design which delivers success time after time.
Our creative journey starts with spending time with a client to really understand and investigate their commercial objectives, spending energy on real user-testing to understand your audience implicitly and only then bring our experience of design, user-psychology and available technology to bear on building an effective and beautiful design.
Strictly speaking our process includes many of the same steps as is typical of a digital-lead agency such as mood- boards, wireframes and so forth but we are repeatedly told that our research, comprehension, forethought and attention to detail allow us to deliver a consistently effective result.
“As always, they approach each project in a client-focused manner, taking time to get to know the product, people and ethos; which through their talented team of designers and developers – results in a far superior end product.”— Mark Byart - ORTG
Building on trust & longevity…
We thrive on driving operational efficiencies through the development of smart, scalable and flexible software delivered through beautiful and effective interfaces.
Openness and trust is of paramount importance to the long-standing partnerships we maintain with our clients because our software, Spirit, often forms the very heart of our client's businesses and our ability to deliver is fundamental to their ability to grow.
It is Spirit's ability to unify so many different areas of so many businesses that defines its power. By centralising the management of CRM, CMS, workflow, document production & management finamce, payments, email & social we accelerate the growth of the clients we serve.
“It is clear to me that the growth that Langley has enjoyed over the past few years had been facilitated, if not fuelled by the operational efficiencies that our Spirit system provides. As we grow you have continued to drive innovation not just within the platform itself but in our commercial processes too. All of which makes our trust in you to deliver and support us all the more rewarding.”—Stuart Mundell - Langley Eco
What our clients say
“I just wanted to emphasise how wonderful it has been working with you. Your design perspective has really added to the technical content of the report, and ultimately to the quality.”
“Innovative communication and branding. Love the proposal.”
“We have had a great experience working with DBS to create our new website. The process, from concept to launch was well managed and the team were both supportive and creative in their approach. Their flexible Spirit framework provides a simple interface to manage website content and layout – having used WordPress in the past, the Spirit “in-line” editor really is much more straightforward and intuitive. Thank you to the whole team, we look forward to working with you again in the future”
“We are currently engaged in our fourth site with Deep Blue Sky. As always, they approach each project in a client-focused manner, taking time to get to know the product, people and ethos; which through their talented team of designers and developers – results in a far superior end product.”
“It is clear to me that the growth that Langley has enjoyed over the past few years had been facilitated, if not fuelled by the operational efficiencies that our Spirit system provides.
