ABOUT ROSIE.

A Rosie Robinson timeline (in hair).

Born 1976

As a kid I loved being outdoors and was always crafting and making stuff.

Best childhood moment: getting a Nintendo NES games console. I can still remember feeling sick with the excitement!

1998

Art A Levels & Art Foundation Course.

Right from an early age I knew there was nothing else I want to do.

2001

Graduated Central St Martins with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture

   

2002

Part time working in an Art Materials shop whilst having a shared art studio on Columbia Road in East London and selling my own handmade jewellery.

2003

Three months in Thailand. What was meant to be a holiday turned into a massive buying trip of stock which I shipped back to the UK with plans to sell on eBay – always the entrepreneur!

2004

Met my partner, we’re still together ❤️

Born a South Londoner she was living in Germany so off I went to Dusseldorf for three years.

2004 - 2007

Tech of the time: Myspace, MSN Messenger and Facebook started!

Nicking my Nan’s surname Rosie Robinson was born and I started selling customised vintage Levi’s on myspace and eBay.

Needing more stock I found a wholesaler of vintage clothing and bulk ordered their denim.

This led to me starting to sell vintage clothing alongside the denim. Purchased blind and by the kilo delivery day was always loads of fun!

It was at this point that I picked up a big copy of Dreamweaver and one on CSS and built my first website.

The original Mrs Robinson!

 

2008

Back to the UK we go.

Got a studio. Opened a shop. Had a market stall and then BAM – The recession hit.

Closed shop. Stopped market stall.

Joined my partner to ‘help out’ with her dog walking business.

2010 - 2018

What started out as ‘helping out’ turned into us running one of the most successful dog walking companies in SW London.

We also set up a company training up other dog walkers and supplying them with clients.

Having made the super successful websites for both companies other local pet care providers naturally started asking me to make them a website and help them with their SEO and Google My Business.

2018

With a move to East Sussex WUF design goes full time.

Entrepreneurship runs in my blood. I started running my own businesses whilst at Central St Martins studying Fine Art. It was clear from the beginning that learning to code and build websites for the businesses I was running would be critical. So that’s exactly what I did. 

With a move into the pet industry, something clicked. I had found my tribe.

I have the hindsight and foresight you need: with extensive experience from over 10 years running my own pet businesses I instinctively know what will work. If you’ve got a pet business conundrum chances are I’ve already dealt with it and can give you the head start you need.  

From highly successful trainers, to expert vets, best in show groomers and talented pet creatives I just love working with pet business owners to create digital homes that help their businesses thrive.

I have the vision to guide your brand: I know pet businesses inside out. And I know design. I can guide your business into a brand with a strong, unique and consistent visual presence. 

I have the practical build skills to make it happen for you: I help pet business professionals grow their companies by creating them a digital home that truly represents their carefully crafted brand.

From simple sites to full on e-commerce I have the digital solutions to ensure your business reaches the right customers. 

I have a Google Certificate of Achievement in The Fundamentals of Digital Marketing.

The course is 26 modules long and over 70 hours of study to complete.
