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). 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

An exiled Evertonian, Pete forgets his football woes by designing our deliciously lickable websites, collecting kindling and learning Italian. A lover his growing collection of wood-burning stoves, Larry David's no.1 fan and currently obsessed by his new MATES bicycle, Pete also has tenuous family connections to Mick Lyons and Giant Haystacks.

Scott Smith

Fan of all things Florida, Scott can be often be found with his family catching up with Mickey & Goofy, cruising the Everglades or soaking up the sun, always with an eye on your SEO. We’re fans of Scott’s subtle approach to website optimisation – rather than working autonomously, just sticking “key words” all over your website, he’ll work with you – and us – to ensure results, as well as design integrity.

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".

"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
"I tracked Pete and Helen down whilst searching the internet for inspiration for my new website. I was searching for web designers that not only knew how to get as many couples to my website as possible, but also to have the creative flair to put across the individuality of our unique business. I haven’t looked back. I now constantly get amazing comments from my couples about how they love the website, as well as letting me know how easy it is to use. As if this isn’t enough, Pete and Helen are amazing to work with…they’re always quick to respond, and totally dedicated to making sure my website design is perfect in every way. I wouldn’t have the slightest hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is in the market for a new or improved website…since changing our website we’re now constantly fully booked for 2 years in advance! What more can I say!" - Paula Hudson, The Barn at South Milton
"I’ve known Helen and Pete for around 10 years. They have actually created three websites and numerous marketing campaigns for me over the years. I can honestly say they are two of the most patient people I have ever met. I am, shall we say, not the most technical person in the world! They not only gently helped me get passed all of that but in their creative process, they actually cared enough to really feel what my business was about and also what my customers are, too. Personally, I think that’s kind of important. They keep everything fresh with new ideas - they are travellers and adventurous and this in turn keeps them fresh as well, so that they always have something new to bring to the table." - Carole Hilton-Stone, Holistic Massage Therapist
"Helen and Pete helped us with the designing of our website, branding, and everything else as we were completely clueless before we came to them! We were recommended to use them by a local business and we're so pleased we took their advice. They are friendly and approachable and we are thrilled with the end result. We are also going to get them to redesign another website we have. 10/10." - Dean Wild, S4JK
"I found We Are Life via a recommendation and Pete invited me for an introductory meeting. We had a very productive but informal initial consultation, which resulted in the creation of a framework specification, agreed budget and an idea of look and feel for the site. The first draft was delivered very quickly and was almost exactly what we had asked for, we then worked together on a few revisions and tweaks and the site was complete. We Are Life made the whole process very easy. Fantastic people and great service. Many thanks from everyone at Seccura." - Howard Johnson, Seccura
"We can’t rate We Are Life highly enough – they’re fantastic, and we recommend their services to anyone who’ll listen! Our new website has helped step up our profile in the bridal industry and is a fantastic online visual representation of who we are and what we’re about – it’s the perfect shop window for us. The branding and style is spot on and we couldn’t have dreamt up a more wonderful website. Pete & Helen are patient, they listen and – more importantly - they ‘get us’. The fact that we’ve recently been shortlisted for an award for Best Bridal Retailer Website is testament to the wonderful work they do and continue to do for us. Nothing is too much trouble.They’re more than a ‘creative agency’, they support local businesses whatever their budget or project. But it’s their passion and commitment to what they do that makes them head & shoulders above all the corporate agency giants out there. It’s personal and it matters to them.. We’d recommend them in a heartbeat." - Nikki Graeme, The White Closet
"In 2015 I reached "Company re-brand" on my to-do list. I was looking for a new identity, new website, signage and stationery, to bring more of a uniform look to my business. To make something work across these different areas was beyond me on my own. I did research into who local businesses had sourced to help them, and all roads led back to We Are Life. After an initial meeting with Pete and Helen I knew I had made the correct choice. It was a rewarding experience for me, they listened and suggested in just the right amounts, brought the element of design and creativity I was after. I am delighted with the results and would recommend them to anyone. Best wishes for your continued success." - James Wheeldon, Wheeldon Opticians
"I found working with We Are Life to be a sublime experience, from start to finish. Being a medium-sized business I initially looked to larger agencies, however I didn’t like the corporate feel of being passed around a large team, nor their dull aesthetic sensibilities. We Are Life was exactly what I was looking for: a small yet fantastic team, who took time to really understand my needs and who ultimately had the ability to transform that vision into a beautiful and visually striking website. I massively appreciated their constant care & attention, and the way they blended their stunning photography and web design into a harmonious whole. Thank you for creating a website we can be proud of!" - Joshua Entwistle, Cherrytree Bakery
