Internet Commercial Effectiveness
ICE COMMS stands for Internet Commercial Effectiveness and Communications, and with over 25 years in multi-disciplined creative management we draw on our creative and in-depth business experience and knowledge to understand what it takes to bring your project to market effectively and economically.

Every service we offer must prove its effectiveness whether it’s a simple product photograph or a full service e-commerce website. We aim to create the most effective, bespoke service possible to meet your marketing needs.

Based in South Devon we are a digital consultancy, specialising in providing advice, design and marketing services to businesses nationally and internationally on their online communications and marketing initiatives.

We focus primarily on design, development and management of leading edge, accessible and dynamic e-commerce, marketing and product support websites with all associated e-marketing techniques and services.

From previous experience of briefing extensive design projects to in-house design teams and external agencies and being a design agency working to a brief we understand how to interpret our customers' requirements, manage expectations and deliver on-time projects to budget.

We work with well-known household brands including Kinetik Medical Devices, Goodmans, iLuv, Bush and Love My Skin and have formed a valuable relationship with Clientbase Fulfilment, the home shopping and efulfilment specialist with distribution centres in Devon servicing the UK, Europe, the USA and Australasia.

We also support local businesses such as Blackler Barton House and creative projects including John Furlong Music and Earthdrum Theatre.
