Introducing &beyond

As those already familiar with us may know, our company was founded by James and Diane Cartwright in 2013. We have since grown from two people to a team of eight eCommerce and marketing experts who specialise in helping businesses grow their online sales and achieve their goals.

We are excited to have reached a point in our journey where we can reflect on where we have been and where we are going next. As a result, we are pleased to announce we are rebranding the business as &beyond. This rebrand, in part, celebrates our past success and, at the same time, better reflects our ambitious growth plans going forward.


Making the leap

Being in demanding teaching jobs and having very little family time initially drove James and Diane to start their own web design business. They wanted a better work/life balance and the freedom to manage their time on their own terms.

James has over 20 years of experience in web design and development and taught A-Level web design for 13 years. Diane has six years of experience running departments in both a secondary school and a charity. She is used to working to deadlines, prioritising and dealing with a heavy workload.

With web development, creative backgrounds, and a keen interest in buying and selling online, it was a natural fit to put their skills and enthusiasm toward helping eCommerce start-ups grow their businesses and reach their potential.


The future is bright

Today, the business has doubled revenue growth for the second year running; the team has grown, and we now work with scalable start-ups and growth-focused clients in the UK and from the USA, Singapore, and Australia. Our new website now highlights our broad range of services, including web design, web development, Shopify app development and digital marketing services.


James Cartwright, our Director and Co-Founder, explains his inspiration for &beyond in this short video.


Our successful Growth-Driven Design approach goes over and above traditional web development methods, and we are proud to help businesses minimise risk and produce high converting websites that deliver results.

We are excited to take this next step in our company’s growth as &beyond and are committed to helping our ambitious clients achieve their goals.
