Who We Are
The Company is run by Sophie who is a big fan of WordPress and Joomla and now favours this platform for most of her clients website builds. That's not to say she won't develop a website in something else should you desire but for a flexible website that can easily be changed by the client, these are the ones she recommends.
Sophie set up the company after designing her own website for her piano tuition company. As a result found a new enthusiasm for the online world and began approaching local business offering her services in website design, social media management, poster design and writing for press. Her first client ws Malvern Cube and from there she has continued to build her portfolio of local business wanting to get their business known, just like her.
Here at SoJo we like to build websites with clear and attractive designs which have a short load time and no fuss! Creating sites which are user friendly with a responsive layout are top on our list when designing. We like to know how your business works and who your potential customers are and pride ourselves on delivering quality and attention to detail with every project.
Client interaction is hugely important with all of our design projects and we will update you regularly throughout the life-cycle of the project.
What our clients say
We absolutely love our new website and were so impressed at how easily Sophie at SoJo Digital Design were able to turn our initial scribbles into the finished product. Sophie worked at a good pace for us, not rushing us to provide content and regularly updating us with her progress. Sophie is excellent at explaining all the technical stuff in a way that we could understand so that we were able to make informed decisions about the website’s capabilities and we really enjoyed our training session enabling us to edit the site ourselves going forward. I would also recommend SoJo hosting – our website is superfast with daily back ups and support when needed.

The website Sophie from So-Jo Digital Design has recently delivered for us is exactly like her! It’s clear, does precisely the job that’s required and has exactly the right amount of functionality mixed with just the right level of beauty (and she stayed within budget for us!).

The posters Sophie at So-Jo Digital Design have produced for us are fabulous in spite of us not being the easiest client! She’s turned a half baked idea into a fantastically finished, quality piece of design that is very successful for us.

Sophie gave my website a much needed overhaul and I was really impressed with both her artistic eye and her professionalism throughout. She allowed me to make my own decisions about how the site should look but offered much needed advice and support with plenty of options to choose from. Her changes were timely, well documented and clear and I am really happy with the results. If you’re looking for a new website or just a face-lift for your existing site, I would recommend Sophie without hesitation.

Starting a new business can be a daunting and costly experience, and trying to get your head around creating a professional looking website can just add to that! Luckily, Sophie came to our rescue! She understood our budgetary restrictions and helped us work within it.
Not only did she capture the feel that we were looking for in our site, she has helped us (and is continuing to help us!) continue to update and create new areas of the site.
She was patient with our minimal IT skills, helping us grow not only our site, but our knowledge to further enhance our site.

I started working with Sophie a few months ago and it has been like breathing a sigh of relief: she is professional, knowledgeable, unflappable and with a creative eye. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Flexible and easy collaboration – Lucidpress moves publishing from the desktop to your web browser With the web evolving as it has, many people thing print is dead – but it’s not! Business developers and owners still print flyers and business cards, performing arts venues and theatres still print posters and provide programs for audience members. Organisations still distribute newsletters, magazines and newspapers. (I personally still buy our local paper – the Malvern Gazette to read over the weekend, even though I can read the same content on my phone, tablet or laptop.) Print on paper fights on. Only recently has the battle begun to become the best online publishing tool as up to November 2013, the two most widely used web suits lack powerful page layout capabilities. Google Docs still supports only a single column of text and Microsoft Publisher still only exists as a desktop application. Lucidpress Lucidpress […]
Are you advertising your business on Facebook? You are not alone. Facebook launches ‘Your Business Story’ video tool as it reaches 3 million active advertisers. Lets gain some perspective comparing the other social media biggies: Twitter has 130,000 active advertisers Instagram recently announced they’ve hit 200,000 advertisers Google, currently the leader in the online ads space, is believed to have more than 4 million active advertisers (though they don’t openly discuss this figure) Facebook’s ad business growth has been super-fast with the social giant well on track to match, or even surpass, Google’s ad business in the very near future. With over 70% of Facebook’s advertisers based outside the US and it’s links to significant branch out projects, like internet.org and Aquila, it really is paving the way for greater connection into less-serviced regions. 2/3 of the world is currently not connected to the internet internet.org The capacity for Facebook […]
This is the first advert Sophie designed for her sister business SoJoSounds. Knowing her main target audience would be children and parents, she decided to employee Tabby from The Little Things to create a friendly character that would entice students in. Between them they came up with the lovable piano key zebra. Design and Success After receiving the piano zebra design from Tabby we set about creating a simple A5 flyer to advertise piano tuition in Malvern. We kept the colours simple, using only black and white, to make it easily readable in shop windows and notice boards. This was also a clear link to the black and white keys of the piano. Sophie wanted to get across to her potential audience that she was a young teacher with an engaging, fun way of teaching, so we used a handwriting style font and kept the text light and informal. You’ll see the […]
