Hi, I’m Chris – a web developer and designer based in the North-East of Scotland and working with clients + agencies around the world.
Here you can see a selection of my past work, across a range of disciplines. Some are all my own creation ( ), others are part of a collaborative effort alongside some hugely talented people I’ve been fortunate to work with ( ).
I’m always interested in new opportunities, both working with clients directly, as well as with agencies and companies looking for extra help with their workload. So if you think we might be a good fit, or simply have a question, please don't be shy… say hello today

It was the style, simplicity and visual elegance of Firegoby Design’s websites that first drew me to asking Chris Batchelor to design the website for my top-end jewellery design business, Just Gems. The finished product was delivered to schedule, meticulously executed and reasonably priced. I always get compliments on the website from customers and colleagues in the jewellery trade. Chris’s ongoing support has been exemplary. He maintains and updates my site swiftly, efficiently and courteously. I am delighted to recommend Firegoby Design to new customers.”Helen Plumb – Aberdeen, UK
I cannot say enough about Chris Batchelor and Firegoby Design. Since retaining them for our company web site redesign in 2007, I have come to rely on Chris for all of our graphic design components and collateral. Chris combines an uncanny – almost prodigious – artistic sense and vision with an extremely high-level of technical and programming proficiency. Our company site has evolved into everything I had ever wanted it to be – a balanced marriage between the ‘yin’ of artistic style and dynamic flavor and the ‘yang’ of well-organized, easy to navigate informational substance. This would never have been possible without Chris.Eugene Lee – New York
He has always gone the extra mile and put in the extra time to meet ALL time deadlines and I know I can always rely on Chris to create the highest quality end product in a timely fashion. He is the consummate professional. Chris takes serious pride in his craft and his passion and gift shine through in every piece of online art that he creates. Thank you, Chris!Eugene Lee – New York
I’ve used Firegoby for numerous web projects and have been extremely happy with the results. Working with Chris has been a real pleasure and he understands exactly what I strive to achieve with in design, practicality and user experience. He consistently worked meticulously from concept to creation and solved any problems along the way. He has handled any maintenance and updates effortlessly and promptly. I always refer Chris to my friends and colleagues without hesitation, as I know he can get the job done.Tim Hawkings – New York
