Iris Digital are Ben Hines and Richard Halling. We're a small business with big ideas from the North East of England. We specialise in multimedia based installations, graphic design projects, web design, video and audio content. Be it touchscreen information kiosks, digital signage, for the web, for print, or something a bit more quirky like our custom made SolarPoint, we love getting stuck into a project. 

We provide bespoke and unique products and work with our customers every step of the way to achieve this.



Ben’s background is from the corporate AV and events world, having spent many years working as a Technician and Production Manager. Specialising in live events, film making, and creating bespoke production elements, Ben has a great deal of experience in what makes a project a success. 

Ben is a passionate self taught graphic designer who loves anything with a pixel!


This is fantastic! I would like to thank you both for the work that has gone into the new viewing gallery. A first class piece of work from a first class team.

I have now commissioned Iris Digital for 3 projects and each time I have been delighted.  Ben and Richard listen carefully to what you want to achieve and work with you to produce a stunning digital and creative design that will showcase your project and your organisation.

They explain clearly how things work, give further support if needed and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
