About Us

Prickly Pear Design was created in 2003 by Cindy Robins, a web designer with 19 year’s full-time experience in the UK and USA. Since then, Cindy has established a solid client base with the majority of new customers coming from recommendations and long-standing clients who are happy to come back again and again.

As a professional and experienced Website Designer, Cindy offers a range of services across a variety of business sectors. Although based in the south of England, she has worked with clients in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA and can offer web design services worldwide with the help of email and web-based systems.

How it all began…

Cindy was fortunate to live in the USA for 8 years during the 1990’s. After graduating in 1998 with a degree in Computer Graphics, she became interested in web design and happened to be in the right place at the right time!

Living in Silicon Valley in California at the time of the ‘dot com’ boom created the fabulous opportunity to work as a web and graphic designer for a number of established and start-up companies over a period of 4 years.

After happily relocating back to the UK in 2000, she was offered the position of Web and Graphic Designer for a genetics research company in Hampshire where she remained until they relocated to the USA in 2005.

Cindy set up Prickly Pear Design in January 2003 as a business opportunity whilst still working and the company has been running as a full-time business since January 2005.
