RF was established in 2003 by Rick Garnett and Frédéric Le Doeuff after both were introduced as colleagues whilst contracting on a number of the same projects.

(Yes that is where we get the RF from - it didn't take a genius to work that out... it took two!)

Enjoying and complimenting each others working styles, they hatched a plan for a web design and development company building on their collective years of experience in the industry (of which they had quite a bit between them).

Today our team is still small and that is how we like it. We've added some extra brain power along the way and we also work with 2 or 3 long term trusted partners, when required, to bolster our numbers.

We're really proud of what we have acheived since establishing the business and look forward to where the next few years will take us in this ever changing industry

Managing Director

"My background has its roots firmly in graphic design and that remains at the core of everything RF produces to this day - it has to work AND it has to look great too. My real passion is for user experience. Not just the experience of the front-end user but also the back-end user and business owner (our client), who has to be able effectively use the tools we've built for them so that they become a seamless part of their business operations.

I particularly enjoy working with clients at the outset of their project when their ideas are exciting and raw. Helping their ideas develop and showing them what they can do with their business online is a great buzz. When we deliver a great finished site or system, it provides a real sense of satisfaction."
