About Duo Web Design

Duo's mission is to enable businesses to excel online. Our key strategy to achieve this is to turn complex web technologies into easy to use tools for our clients.

Since 2002 we've helped over 300 companies with various projects in a wide range of markets and disciplines.

Our Experience & Background

Duo is an Award Winning Manchester web design agency, focusing on delivering dynamic web & digital solutions. Combining design, creativity, & user interface design with the latest web and mobile technology we give our clients the power to easily update and maintain their online facilities without the need for an IT degree.  

Company Strategy

15 years ago we set up our agency, believing passionately in good design and the innovative use of technology to deliver professional and sustainable digital solutions. As an agency Duo has always maintained a balance of design / creative and cutting edge online technical capabilities, but ultimately we are focused on helping our clients achieve their goals.

Scope of Work

Over time our team and client list has grown with work spanning a spectrum of industries and over 550 clients projects. A constant is that our clients are confident and have security in the fact that we have the ability to do anything they will need to achieve online.

Because of this creative technical expertise over the years we have seen a shift in our projects and although they include an online marketing website, clients are more and more using Duo to design, develop and create dynamic web applications. With the Web Apps ultimately forming the backbone of their business and continued success.

- 1.5 million users
- 80,000+ logins per day ( growing daily )

- 8000+ concurrent users
- 13.8 million answers

“Working with Duo Design we have developed a system that can take a written answer to a multi-step problem, analyse that answer and allocate marks just like an examiner would. We are now the only company with the complete package of video clips and genuine exam-style questions for every Maths topic on the syllabus – sales evidence tells us that we are the preferred solution to providing that vital Maths educational support to teachers and students for over half the schools in the country. This market share is growing.”Ken Smith at MathsWatch
“Just want to say thank you for this great resource. Just finished an after-school revision lesson with Yr 11. They love it, I love it and my team love it.”Lilian Wiggle, Head of Maths at Challney High School for Boys
