About us.

Not all web and app agencies are created equal.
OK, we’re sure you’ve heard that before, but at 4 Digital
we genuinely believe we offer a rare combination of
expertise, experience, passion and creativity.

How we tick

At 4 Digital we have one central belief. That the relationship you have with
your digital agency is the single most important factor affecting the success
of your website or mobile app. So we put you, our client, central to the whole
process. We listen. We advise. We collaborate. And we enjoy.

  • Our vision

    4 Digital is here to make a tangible difference in the web and mobile app landscape. We firmly believe that we can significantly help each of our clients through smart, impactful, intuitive, well thought-through digital solutions, enabling them to fully realise their own visions, with us at their side.

  • Our values

    1. To create powerful, compelling, and memorable digital experiences.
    2. To identify the optimum approach to elevate your brand.
    3. To make each project a positive and rewarding experience for you.
    4. To form genuine, long-lasting relationships and partnerships.

  • Our people

    Our team are all experts within their fields, combining a rare depth of talent, experience and vision.

  • Our guarantee

    We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality technical and creative digital projects. In fact, we are so confident in the sites and apps we build, that if you are not 100% happy with any aspect of our work we won’t charge you for anything you haven’t signed-off. Before kick-off we will also give you a Service Level Agreement to protect and reassure you.

Our team

Our people are the heart and soul of 4 Digital. While the company is new,
the founding members of our team have many years’ experience creating
compelling websites and mobile apps. Together, we apply all that industry
experience to excite, engage and connect with your target audience online.

    Roxy
    Head of Security

    Roxy was born in 2005 and since then has achieved very few formal qualifications in the world of web development (well, none really). However, when it comes to rapidly locating a fallen biscuit crumb, barking aimlessly at thin air or spotting furtive squirrels up to a mile away Roxy is simply unequalled in our team. She prefers snoozing to hard work and slightly predictably her favourite 4 Digital project of all time is www.generationpup.ac.uk. which she thinks is pawsitively brilliant!

As MD of Tax Management New Zealand, I have utilised Andy’s services and those of his company since 2002. The longevity of this association is testimony to our working relationship. Andy is commercial in his approach, and has demonstrated ability to interact constructively in helping us define user requirements and implement great web based systems.

Ian Kuperus, Founding Director, TMNZ

A pleasure to work with. Amazing attention to detail, creative solutions, elegantly executed. On a personal level (but still in a business context!), Andy is a calm, approachable, friendly, philosophical man and a pleasure to know. In one word? Trustworthy. In three? Trustworthy Technological Evangelist.

David Hazell, Computer Software Professional

Andy has the ability to fully understand a client’s requirements and then transpose them into well thought out, logical, user interfaces and features. As well as being a pleasure to work with Andy’s diligence and attention to detail always ensures that a quality product is delivered that meets and regularly exceeds the client’s expectations. I would highly recommend Andy to any potential client, as his wide industry knowledge and expertise is a valuable asset to any serious online business.

Ozkan Mustafa, Development Manager, Vodafone UK

We have worked with Andy for close on a decade and must say he has been the most reliable and efficient consultant we have ever dealt with. He has always been upfront and clear about costs and timings and sticks to these even if under pressure from other quarters. With his experience and skill he adds value to all projects and requires very little supervision, thereby adding to our bottom line. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and his team to anyone wanting Web development.
