Our History

Blue Ice was formed in 2008 by Stuart Smitheringale, a graduate of the University of Newcastle and former IBM employee. Stuart has been developing websites since the early days of the internet.

One of our first projects was to build a simple brochure website for a holiday cottage in North Yorkshire and we still work with this client 10 years later! Over the years we have continued to grow from strength to strength, working on some fantastic projects with many excellent clients. We look forward to the future with enthusiasm.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to keep things simple, yet elegant. We believe that ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’. However, simplicity isn’t always easy to achieve!

We follow a tried and tested process for all projects. It starts with listening to our clients to understand their business model and requirements. Next we submit a proposal that outlines the deliverables, responsibilities, costs and timeframes. Finally, we get down to work, keeping you informed at every stage. We aim to exceed your expectations.

We are a small company, offering personal care and attention to all projects we take on.
