Spotlight On: IndigoBird Web Design & Hosting

IndigoBird Web HostingEvery month on Wallingford Piper we like to find out more about a local business. This month it is the turn of IndigoBird – the web hosting and design company run by Catherine Carr.

Tell us a bit about you and your business.

I’m Catherine, and I own IndigoBird – a web hosting and design company. I live in Wallingford with my husband and two young daughters (Emma, 5 and Lucy, 2). I specialise in web site designs for small businesses, and also offer web hosting and IT consultancy services.

Why did you decide to work for yourself?

I have worked in IT for 12 years, but when Emma was born I wanted a job  which I could do from home. I had worked on several websites through  work, and sort of fell into web designing when a friend asked me to help her out. Someone liked her new site and wanted one for themselves, and  IndigoBird grew from there!

What is the best part of your job?

Most of my clients have a fabulous business that they want to start, and need a website to suit it. They often have great ideas about what they would like to see. I really love making those ideas come to life for them. Although I work with customers all over the world, I particularly enjoy working face to face with local customers!

What is your favourite thing about Wallingford?

I have lived here for two years, and as a family we are really happy here! I love that it is a big enough town for me to be able to get everything I need on a daily basis (I don’t have a car) but small enough to almost always run into someone I know in town! There is a great community spirit here. My favourite place to go is the castle gardens. Perfect for a picnic and an explore when the weather is nice.
