Our Team

Waywest Design was founded at the University of Leeds in 2013, and what started as a one-person operation driven by word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and family has grown into a still small, but effective team of talented professionals. We’ve worked with clients from all over the world, yet we remain passionate about helping startups evolve from ideas into thriving businesses.

At Waywest Design, we promote a healthy lifestyle and a good work-life balance. We believe that flexibility leads to better relationships and higher-quality work. While we do have a central office in Leeds for meetings, we encourage a flexible working environment that fosters creativity and productivity.

“I cannot recommend Waywest Design enough. They take time to really get to grips with your requirements and understand the message you are trying to put across. They are then able to deliver your design requirements to a very high standard as well as helping you with all of the little things. 5 Stars for Waywest.”

Project Lead & Director

Jack Weston

I’m Jack, the founder of Waywest Design. My journey into digital design started during my time at the University of Leeds, where I discovered a passion for creating logos and websites. In 2013, I began helping students’ parents with their business needs by providing affordable, high-quality digital solutions. This quickly turned into a thriving business by my fourth year.

I founded Waywest Design to be the go-to place for individuals with business ideas who need help with all digital aspects. From a one-person operation, we’ve grown into a team of over ten talented professionals. As a project manager, I stay deeply involved in every project, ensuring each client’s vision is brought to life with precision and creativity.

Outside of work, I’m passionate about combat sports and travelling the world. These experiences inspire my work and keep me energised. I believe in building long-term relationships with our clients, offering continuous support and impeccable advice.
