Beautiful, bespoke website design


What We Do

We can turn our collective creative hands to very much everything you could want, so from a set of business cards through to a full blown e-commerce website, bet we can deliver.

We have a knack for producing engaging, lickable websites. Our focus is always on clear, usable front-end design and strong ideas which result in fabulous sites for our clients. Our goal is to captivate your audience and ultimately promote your business in the best light to sell yourself.

Business cards, brochures, banners. Price lists, posters, packaging. Flyers, book jackets, invitations. You tell us what you'd like and before you know it, you'll have it. And, we'll make sure that your print design isn't run-of-the-mill. It'll be individual. Just like you.

A brand is beyond just designing logos. It is about capturing the very essence of who you are. Your attitude, tone, message and values, all culminating in the targeted exposure your business needs. And that's what we do at We Are Life.


PLEASE NOTE: We’re a really small team (but with big ideas for our clients) based in Didsbury, South Manchester. We don’t have receptionists and interns and account managers handling calls, enquiries & projects. We project manage everything from the initial enquiry to sign off – so if you contact us and we don’t get back straight away, please bear with us. Hopefully, you’ll be the kind of client who’ll understand this…

Who We Are

Helen Corr

Team Portrait

Organiser, co-ordinator and the glue to it all. Keeps the We Are Life team in line. Lover of all things Italian and avid pen collector, Helen once was neighbours with the piano man in the pub scene from Get Carter. She also is perhaps one of the most prolific tweeters on the planet.

Pete Ruane

Team Portrait

Exiled Evertonian now residing in Manchester, Pete forgets his football woes by designing our deliciously lickable websites. A lover of very early morning bike rides, Larry David's no.1 fan and currently obsessed by his new fangled wine aerator, Pete also has tenuous family connections to Mick Lyons and Giant Haystacks.

Andy Stead

He's the fastest coder in the Wild West, heading the frontier of quirky website designs (along with the rest of the We Are Life team). If you don't find him glued to a computer screen, he will be shredding one of his guitars or be at the bottom of a pint of Guinness. Whenever you need a coding gunslinger, he's your man.

Jonny Draper

When he's not dreaming about what could have been, had he picked up the lead role in "Les Miserables" in The West End, Jonny is shooting weddings. A lover of photographing anything people related, this award winning photographer is our go-to-snapper when our clients are in need of images to bring their websites to life. He's also quite fond of the healing properties of Jagermeister…

Jo Manning

Super-efficient Jo, mum to Lucy, Ava & Chloe, heads up our We Are Life PA operation. From filing your emails, to organising your travel itinerary, to attending your Christmas party, Jo's your "go to" girl. Plus she has passed the Life test and can now score 100% when tested on "Sons of Anarchy".

What our clients say...

"When I decided to look into website design I was a little overwhelmed and unsure of what my next steps were. That was until I met with you both. I instantly knew from meeting with you that I was in the best hands possible. You have encouraged and supported me to believe in what I do even more and most importantly given me the platform to shout about my lovely business. I never had any doubt that I would get goosebumps when my website was complete. It's such a lovely feeling when I say to my brides 'Have you had a look at my website?' knowing their response will be 'Oh yes, it's beautiful'. I have so much respect for you both." - Gemma Kelsall, Bluebells & Daisies
"A HUGE heartfelt thanks to both Helen and Pete for all of their hard work in helping me re design, re brand, create brand new websites, tweet about me and generally be the lovely folk that they are! I have had SO many lovely, positive and enthusiastic comments about the websites, design and business cards for this and my other business (Relaxing Reflexology) and I am absolutely delighted! I would have no hesitation whatsoever is recommending both them and their work. Best wishes Zoe" - Zoe Aspin, Vintage Afternoon Teas & Relaxing Reflexology
"We feel in very safe hands with We Are Life. They're not just web designers, they're a creative, personal business themselves, which is what we actually liken ourselves to. They understand more than just building websites, they know what it's like to run a business, the things that are important to us and nothing is ever too much trouble. The level of service and customer experience they deliver is second to none and they are nothing but a pleasure to work with." - Emma & Jonny Draper, Love Bridal Boutique
"There are two stand out qualities in the team at We Are Life. Firstly, their artistic talent sings from the pages of your new website, because of their commitment to producing totally bespoke websites that are as individual as the companies they work with. An added bonus is that they are a friendly bunch and it can all be done over a cup of tea. We love our new website and getting it done has been the highlight of our year." - Anna & Emil, Owners, Azzurro Italian Restaurant
