Build. Measure. Learn. We are Damage, a global design and development agency, partner with us and See how we can help...


We Are Damage, founded by Roy Barber, a veteran freelancer. We're a small team of five experienced designers and developers that specialises in supporting agencies and start-ups.

Sometimes a pitch arrives that requires extra resource, perspective and insight – and that’s where we come in. We aim to be an extension to your in-house team and to fit perfectly into your workflow.

We seek to provide better value than hiring a freelancer, and to be more reliable and flexible. Whether you need a couple of hours here and there, or a couple of days a week on a regular retainer, we can help.

What we do

By combining design, branding, technology, and an understanding of business, we provide a unique service. We strive to replace the usual client/supplier relationship with a genuine partnership.

White Label

We’ll fit seamlessly into your workflow. Whether that’s taking client feedback directly, or attending client meetings as ‘one of your agency team’, we never disclose who we are or what we do for your business.

User Experience

For your online and mobile touch-points, we’ll create wireframes, user flows, information architecture, and interactive design.


Whether you’re looking to rebrand, or to develop brand guidelines and treatments, we can provide cost-effective inspiration and results.

UI & Web Design

With vast experience – from developing web apps for Ticket Arena to corporate intranets for BAE Systems – we can meet all your user- interface and website-design requirements.

Frontend Development & Wordpress

We love coding responsive, fast-loading WordPress sites, as well as static HTML. We’re experts at integrating code into most platforms, from Umbraco to bespoke Ruby apps.

Backend Development & APIs

We have worked on various backend development projects, from full bespoke APIs to API connecting web apps.

Our office

We all work from our well-equipped office in Retford, UK. It’s a five-minute walk from the national train station with a one hour train to the capital, or thirty minutes from Doncaster’s international airport. We can also operate at a client’s premises as and when required.
