Clients just need a pretty website. That’s the first rule we broke. Because 80% of websites fail to generate results, no matter how pretty.

 

A successful design business isn’t about pretty websites—it’s about business. Getting more traffic and sales for clients. Sourcing, winning and pricing projects. Working smarter, not just harder. A successful business is about taking control of your work, your life and its purpose.

 

But the old industry rules are getting in the way. From complex software platforms to competition from $300 websites, designers everywhere are suffering in business. They’re getting trapped in the feast-or-famine cycle, outsourcing profits and designing without reaping the benefits they work so hard for.

 

That’s why we created Foxley: to help designers build a business they love on their own terms. And give the industry a mighty shaking too.

 

Created by web design entrepreneurs, the Foxley platform has the tried-and-true things you really need to win in business: light-speed build times, proven workflows, built in marketing strategy, technical support, sales guidance and so much more.

 

Foxley lets you write your own rules for a successful business. Maybe that’s just enough projects to let you surf all morning. Maybe that’s turning over your first million. Or maybe it’s the confidence to make the leap from full-time to freelance.

 

Whatever business you dream of, we’ll help you get there.

 

Forget the old rules, this is Foxley.

Our

Values

ENDLESS CURIOSITY

Our hunger for new ideas is insatiable. We’re always searching, improving and pushing ourselves–because learning is part of the journey.

SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is power and we spread it like wildfire. When we learn something new, we pass it on. Everything we do, we share.

RADICAL CANDOUR

True respect means giving genuine feedback from a place of love. We’re honest with each other because it makes us better. Bullshitting and ego stroking never helped anyone.

QUESTION AUTHORITY

To hell with doing things the way they’ve always been done. We never stop asking if there’s a better way. That’s how we outfox the status quo again and again.

REST HARD

We work hard and play hard, but resting hard is where the magic happens. It energizes our spirit, nourishes our creativity and keeps us focused on what really matters.

RIDE THE TIGER

Anything worth achieving takes guts and grit. So we ride the tiger and roll with every punch. Whether celebrating a win or learning from defeat, our mindset stays strong.
