Over the past 10 years Scarborough has become a creative hub on the North Yorkshire coast. With the introduction of the Woodend Creative workspace many new design companies have set up covering all types of design from graphic design to website design.

Below are links to two of these companies. One is a well established veteran of the Scarborough design scene, established in 2001 and the other is a relatively new concern, starting out only last year.


IWD Media Solutions were established in 2001. They are web and graphic designers who can turn their hands to any type of design from a simple leaflet right through to a complex bespoke E-commerce website.

Their owners have a wealth of experience in the field of corporate and consumer design. Prior to establishing IWD they worked on many large projects for large corporations including Ideal Standard, Channel 4, House of Fraser and the BBC.

Presently their clients include many local businesses such as, Asquith & Co., Blue Crush Bar, Life’s Energy as well as large national and international corporations such as Star Computers and Cale Street Partners.



Affordable Website Solutions are a relatively new company, only established in July of 2017. They specialise in the design and production of affordable WordPress websites.

Although they use the WordPress platform, every website they produce is designed from scratch with the clients specific requirements in mind. Using the ready made WordPress platform lets them keep the design and build costs down to a minimum meaning you really do get a well designed website at a price you can afford. Perfect if you are a new startup with limited resources.

They are steadily growing a local client list which includes, Andrew Newlove, Scarborough Rowing Club, ISM Engineering, Skyline Builders and Seamer Fisheries.
