Eddy Hope


Who am I?

I’m Eddy, aka ‘The Nib Guy’ I am a freelance web designer and social media manager based in the North East of England.

I believe design has the power to do more than sell a product, but that it can make a difference through altering perceptions, emotions and actions for the good of us all. I also believe in having a good time while doing what I love, and I do love what I do.

Why do I call myself the Nib Guy?

Well, the Nib Guy was a nickname given to me by a friend who recognized my persistent use of the word NIB to describe my writing/drawing tools. They also knew about a site which I may launch in the future, who knows, which also has NIB incorporated in the title. So… I was branded ‘The Nib Guy’  I liked it, so stuck with it and I have decided to use it as my new personal brand. I feel I must mention my passion for stationery and other analog tools which help me get my work completed whilst keeping me organised. It’s not just stationery I love but also digital methods to manage my large projects. I spend most of my time staring at a screen when doing client work and very much appreciate the state of calm that comes with a blank page in my notebook when armed with my trusty nibs.


My Mission…

To satisfy my clients to the fullest extent possible through my customer service and through creating high quality professional websites, social media management and to provide a hopefully stimulating and informative blog on my favourite topics… stationery, (maybe reviews) apps and digital/analog productivity methods.

  • I aim to understand your needs and requirements and design a website that mirrors your expectations.
  • Design the graphical elements and user interface for maximum usability, aiming to meet accessibility standards and coding standards.
  • I aim to provide competitive quotations whilst providing a high level of personal service and support that you would expect.
  • Contact the client on a regular basis with updates to designs.
  • Give 100% attention to a project, only working on one clients contract at a time.
