Neil Burnett - Web designer Kendal, Graphic Designer Kendal

Neil is the head of Burnett Design but you may get the pleasure of working with our expanding team of designers and developers including Jennie, Maria, Tony and Dave. We also work closely with a select group of talented local writers, photographers and marketing experts we get involved as the job dictates.


Over the last two decades I have enjoyed learning new skills and building a knowledge base that allows me to bridge print and web, which is beneficial to clients who wish to create a brand and marketing strategy that works well across both.

My professional roles have included Art Editor at NME and Select Magazine, Senior Designer at well-respected local agencies, and Creative and Digital Designer at Adventure Peaks, where I’ve created and managed multiple websites and devised web strategies to boost sales, increase conversions, and raise brand awareness.

The experience I’ve gained in fast-paced and deadline-driven roles means I’m good at working to tight deadlines and on challenging projects. I have built up excellent knowledge and understanding of design, digital marketing, search engine optimisation and E-commerce and have experience in pay per click advertising, search and social media platforms.

Aside from the professionalism upon which I pride myself, I’m also very approachable and easy to work with. I’m happy to walk clients through the creative process so that they feel 100% comfortable with what’s involved and know what to expect from me at each stage. This leads to positive working relationships, which in turn leads to improved outcomes.

What we do

It can be really easy to forget that the work you do isn’t the work that everyone else does. This will, I hope, explain a bit more about my working approach:


Neil has over two decades of experience working in print and on websites. All of the team at Burnett Design are highly skilled with many years of experience working at senior positions. We work remotely which means we don’t have many overheads to pass on to our clients.


We collaborate with others when needed. If you need help writing content for your website or print piece, or you need help with a launch story for your local press, we will organise working with other talented individuals to get it done.

Work with you

Our team work with you to ensure that designs are effective online (website, emails, social media) and offline (all print materials). All of our designs are specific to you and your aims for the project will be the focus.

Website updates

The websites we build have an integrated content management system (CMS) so that you can update it yourself and save on maintenance costs.

SEO and Responsive websites

The websites we build are optimised for search engines (SEO) and are also responsive, which means they detect and display appropriately on mobile devices and tablets as well as desktops and laptops.

Good design

Good design moves businesses forward – whether you’re a start-up developing a brand from scratch or an established business looking to develop your existing branding, we’d enjoy working with you.
