Established as a full time business in 2003, Prickly Pear Design is run by Cindy Robins, an experienced web designer with a simple, creative style.
Having first discovered a passion for web design during her computer graphics degree in California, Cindy happened to be in the right place at the right time! It was the Silicon Valley ‘dot com’ boom which created a great demand for web designers and a fabulous opportunity to work for a number of US companies over a period of 4 years.
Moving back to the UK in 2000, Cindy worked as a Web & Graphic Designer for a genetics research company in Havant where she remained until they relocated to the USA in 2005.
Prickly Pear Design was originally established in early 2003 as a ‘spare time’ opportunity whilst she was employed but demand and redundancy created a full time business which has been running successfully ever since.
Cindy loves a clean, simplistic style and this is reflected in all of the projects that she has completed over the years.
When she isn’t web designing, she loves to walk, travel to new places, enjoy nature, and take photos wherever she goes!
And the name?
With a distinct lack of green fingers, Cindy has always loved cacti and Texas had prickly pear growing in abundance. The flowers were stunning in contrast to the prickles and the name just seemed to fit the bill. Apparently they are edible too… just as long as you remove the spikes!
