We help businesses grow by embracing the digital world and raising the standards.
What is the one thing in your life that excites you the most?
When are you at your absolute happiest?
What's your big challenge that scares you to think about doing it?
I love big questions. No small talk please. The answers you get tell you so much about a person. And way more interesting than the standard “so what do you do…?” right!? If someone asks me what I do then I would tell them I own a web design company. But what excites me the most?Working with amazing businesses and helping them grow.
Working with Communities.
Hearing about people’s business ideas and getting to know the people who are making them a success. A working week for me usually involves a coffee in hand and getting to talk to amazing, inspiring creators and working together to build their businesses. And that makes me so happy and grateful – every single day.
Our growth and success is measured solely by the results of your business.
If you are not growing, neither are we.

Hi, I’m Tom, the owner of Essiem. I guess you could say that my decision to start a company was inevitable. I come from a family of business owners, entrepreneurs and visionaries so I always knew that I wanted to follow in their amazing footsteps and build a company.
After spending most of my childhood growing up in Holland I came back to the UK to study and spent my early career in Cambridge, running backstage and AV setup at concerts and events before building my first website in 2004. From that point on I was hooked and jumped straight into the deep end as a freelance designer and developer gaining lots of valuable experience.
The web design industry has changed beyond anyone’s expectations over that time with technology advancing at breakneck speed but even back then I could see that websites would be a compulsory component of every business in the future. Early websites were clunky and many were so difficult to use. Great usability was something I pushed for consistently (and still do).

you don’t have to take our word for it…
Our new and engaging website reaches not only local but national coverage. The effective design layout and engagement by users has enabled Menta, the Suffolk Enterprise Agency, to significantly raise its profile and web presence. This was a contributory factor in Menta winning the national ‘future of enterprise award’. The attention to detail and precision has led to a relationship that has delivered excellent results on time and to budget, in a business centric manner.
Alex Till - Chief Executive
Our work with Essiem was to design a website that is unique in structure but captivating in style, they managed to achieve where others have tried and failed. We are not an easy company to work for as we are very specific and nit-picky in what we are wanting to achieve but the patience and attention to detail that Tom provided was and still is amazing. A terrific person to work with and a continuing relationship with new adventures to look forward to in the future.
Callum Cook - Marketing Executive
I could not recommend Tom enough, he guided me through every stage of preparing the website, being very patient and understood the look I wanted very quickly. Very very happy with the end result. I like the fact that the service is ongoing to ensure the website always looks fresh.
Tracy Minns - i-Accounting
Tom took the time to understand the intricacies of our business in doing so it enabled them to produce a site that met our spec in terms of content, functionality and looks without having to go back and forth and continually with alterations and missing features. Couldn’t be happier.
