About Us

Prickly Pear Design was created in 2003 by Cindy Robins, a web designer who now has 19 year’s full-time experience gained 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 web designer, Cindy offers a range of services across a variety of business sectors. Although based in Hampshire in the south of England, she has worked with clients across the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA and can offer web design services worldwide via email and web-based systems.

How it all began…

Cindy was fortunate to move to the USA for an 8 year period 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 home to the UK in 2000, she was offered the position of Web & Graphic Designer for a genetics research company in Havant where she remained until they relocated to the USA in 2005.

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

And the name? Cindy loves cacti and Texas had prickly pear plants growing in abundance. The flowers were stunning therefore the business name seemed to fit the bill. Apparently they are edible too… just as long as you remove the spikes!
