Fountain Digital was formed in 2011 by Bob Fountain and Danny Hazelgrove. The company quickly gained a reputation for honesty, integrity, hard work, and above all, good old fashioned customer service. It is with pride that Fountain Digital treats it's oldest customer with the same reverence as it's newly gained ones. You can be sure that once you are a customer of ours you will be treated with courtesy and respect, the same values now as when the company was formed.
Company Managing Director Danny Hazelgrove has amassed a vast catalogue of IT experience, gained over 15 years, and was an IT manager for a large solicitors in East Sussex before deciding to grasp the opportunity to develop Fountain Digital into the market leading digital specialist it is today. Danny has an in depth knowledge and years of experience working within Business IT infrastructures, Servers, Virtualisation, Open Source, SEO "search engine optimisation" and website design. He spends most of his days working time on platforms such as: Zimbra, Pfsense, Ubuntu, Request Tracker & Adobe Creative Suite.
When not deciphering IT conundrums and website related issues Danny can be found tinkering with PC's, iMacs and learning the latest web compliant standards. Not just a pretty face, Danny is also the go to man for any accounts issues at Fountain Digital and is happy to deal with any questions relating to invoicing. He's also not averse to a bacon bap and cup of good quality filter coffee.
Company Director Neil Newnham is the creative heartbeat of Fountain Digital and has years of experience using Adobe’s Creative Suite of applications, html and css. He is just as comfortable designing a logo as he is designing and developing a website. He adores nothing more than crafting a website from a blank canvas to the shining finished article. His influences are many but never far from his heart is minimalism, clean fresh areas of canvas where less is more. Neil's favourite applications to use are Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, both of which he uses every day in order to produce clients' websites, stationery, graphic design, logos and custom images.
Although recently retired from his Directorship of Fountain Digital, Bob Fountain is still actively involved in building custom databases for his clients and also keeps in touch with both Danny and Neil on a weekly basis as they discuss all manner of things digital. In fact, they were recently involved in creating an exciting new project for Fountain Digital; a new website, including database, for the East Sussex National Health Services sexual health department. The results of which can be seen here.
