We work differently. Our passion is your success.
Putting your customers first
Each of our client's needs are different. We build a deep understanding of you, your customer and your business. This helps you compete more effectively in your market.
We like to tell your story from your customer or supporter's perspective. We build a solution around what they want, making them feel valued and, essentially, the hero in your journey together.
Flexible and always learning
We don't take anything for granted. We constantly improve what we do and how we work so that we provide you with the best value.
The internet changes, but we keep up with it to ensure that you do too. It's a constant learning process and we invest a lot of time and energy to make any collaboration with you as effective as possible.
Established in 2010
We’ve worked hard and proven our ability since 2010, and managed dozens of clients and hundreds of projects across Ireland and the UK.
Made in Trenbania Limited was founded in October 2018 by Andy Smith and Sinéad Smyth. The company grew out of Andy's freelance web design business.
Andy started work on his first website for the conservation charity he worked for in 2001. His boss liked it, which was a good start!
But he also liked it, and he enjoyed the creative process that resulted in a website that could be seen around the world - the whole concept was new to him, but, back then, it was still relatively new to most!
Andy continued to work on the regional website in Northern Ireland. He was also asked to take on the website for the organisation across the whole of the UK, which we still manage on an ongoing basis today. He picked up a few other commissions in his spare time, but, in early 2010, decided to set up his own business - and Made in Trenbania was born.
Sinéad is an artist (and married to Andy) and has been organising, enabling and facilitating arts-related projects for over 20 years. She has worked on several collaborative arts projects on both sides of the Irish border, including the Turner Prize and City of Culture/Thames Festival ‘Rivers of the World‘ project. She has exhibited in Ireland, Northern Ireland and further afield in Europe.
Sinéad brings her artistic talents and creative mind to Made in Trenbania and helps bolster Andy's website and marketing expertise, as well as guiding his none too shabby design skills. Between them, they make a formidable team!
Why 'Made in Trenbania'
Well, the ‘Made in’ is obvious I suppose. Trenbania comes from the local area ‘Trenbane’ (on older maps ‘Treanbane’).
The logo is based on the rune ‘Algiz’, which is sometime interpreted to represent protection. An Trian Bán is, literally translated, Irish for ‘the white third’ or 'the white part'. It probably means 'the uncultivated third'. The rune neatly cuts a one-third slice of the circle (also protection).
So, there you go! Our business goes from strength to strength, having built up a solid base of clients that continues to grow - long may that continue!
