Orcadia Design Has Been Building Websites Since 1999

We have been serving web design and development clients since 1999 when we started building websites for clients in Belgium and the Netherlands in the arts industry, i.e., galleries and artists.

In 2002 we decided to move to beautiful Orkney, Scotland, where we have built up an extensive client list over the last 20+ years.

We work with businesses and organizations in a wide variety of industries, both in Orkney and farther afield in the UK and Europe. This ranges from hospitality, renewable energy, food & drink, entertainment, automotive, and arts and crafts to NHS and local government.

Our remote team is friendly, flexible, responsive, and focused on giving our clients the best experience possible, offering fully bespoke website builds, ongoing WordPress maintenance, and associated services.
