Having worked with Umbraco for many years now, our team are extremely familiar with the codebase and have created a number of bespoke modules.

This includes ecommerce solutions - which we can create through integration with Ucommerce.
We have developed a whole range of sites on Umbraco. These include a beautiful brochure site for the family-run Daffodil Hotel, to the complex and highly trafficked YOTEL site, complete with ecommerce functionality. Both of these are award-winning sites - most notably YOTEL which won Digital Project of the Year at the 2017 UK IT Industry Awards.

In fact, our own site, that you're reading right now, is also an Umbraco development!
As well as clients for whom we have designed and developed their website from the beginning, we also have a number of support contract options for existing Umbraco developments.
We can provide anything from ad hoc support to 24/7 assistance, depending on your need.
Why choose Fat Media?
In early 2017 we became Umbraco Gold Partners - one of a small group of agencies in the country to do so. Not only does this mean we receive additional training from Umbraco HQ, but we also receive personal support from the Umbraco team. They are on hand to advise us on complicated projects, to help complete them quickly and efficiently. Ultimately, it means we have the opportunity to collaborate with the people who actually created the Umbraco system.
We were also proud to become a Certified Ucommerce Solutions Partner in 2019, enabling us to offer highly functional ecommerce websites backed by the Umbraco content management system.

I’ve been delighted with Fat Media’s web development skills and their flexibility in meeting our requirements. With their help we updated our website presentation layer, added responsive mobile, added a new Content Management System, changed our Airport Property management System and migrated across to a new hosting environment. All without any major hitches.Fergus Boyd, IT Director, Yotel
We had the pleasure of working with the team at Fat Media in the development of our new recruitment website. They made the whole project very easy for us and nothing was too much trouble. We were on time and on-budget but most importantly they delivered a really creative solution in keeping with our brand - we were thrilled with the results. We have a clean contemporary recruitment website which makes learning more about life at Lakeland very accessible to applicants.Suzanne Allen, People & Business Support Manager, Lakeland
Working with Fat Media has been a pleasure from start to finish – their enthusiasm for creating a brilliant new website starts in the initial briefing and runs throughout the project. They are always on hand to provide guidance and provide solutions quickly. They have a friendly yet professional approach and deliver to expectations and time scales. Looking forward to working with them on the next project!Emily McCoid, Marketing Manager, Bells of Lazonby
The Digital Advertising team at Fat Media did a highly professional and intuitive job from start to finish, and are a pleasure to work with. They took the time to understand what we wanted to achieve, develop detailed analysis which was then evolved based on the data emerging throughout our campaign, and, by them continuously optimising the mix of channels, formats and styles, the results far surpassed our expectations – so much so that we have already set a higher budget for our next campaign.Iain Corby, Director of Operations & Development, Gamble Aware

We worked very closely with Fat Media to make sure all key elements of the site were quickly accessible and found the perfect balance between design elements and user experience.Gareth O'Rourke, E-marketing Manager, Pure Leisure
It was as pleasure to work with Fat Media on developing our new website this year. They were proactive, creative and very practical with their proposals and working approach to meet our needs. We also launched on time – no mean feat with a school website, where approvals are often down to a number of people. They also created our new whole school Prospectus which perfectly complements the website and has given us a fresher, more contemporary feel for all our materials. They remain supportive and helpful and I know that I can always call them up for advice or help.Alison Miles, Marketing Manager, Sydenham High School
