Alternotion provides business and design services in the UK and Europe for enterprises and individuals.

We are a small group of professionals passionate about delivering quality and value. Where needed, we work with external professionals who share our passions so we can deliver to our client's brief in the most appropriate and effective way.

Our clients are mostly within Europe and the UK; we prefer to work within fairly local timezones and to minimise CO2 emissions where possible. Having said that, if you think we may be able to help you and you are not in Europe / UK, Skype or Zoom are always to hand.

We always try to think outside the box; to think sideways, not straight ahead. Alternotion; altered notions; different thinking.

We can also generate videos with fully scripted, professional voiceovers and / or bespoke photography for your site.

Recent example sites include:

We offer web hosting, domain registration and maintenance packages to provide an all-round solution to help reduce the pressure on your valuable time.

As part of our design service, we also design for print - physical brochures, adverts, manuals and business cards. We work with great local lithographic and digital printers to produce output of the quantity and quality you need.

Up to date head shots and portraits are often needed for both online and print environments. We can bring a mobile studio to your office or home and work with you to get the shots you want without you or your team wasting precious time travelling to our location. Included in our fees is basic post-processing of selected images. We can also provide an enhanced post processing service where required.


If you are in the creative or performance industries, we can set up specialised lighting arrangements at your chosen location to produce the best shots to showcase your skills, your work and your products. Whether a potter, dancer, actor, artist... our experience covers all these situations and more.


Large or small, formal or casual, we can usually provide a photographic service to suit your needs and budget.
