Why we do what we do

We get it.

Running a small business or creating a new startup is tough. The budgets are tight, the pressure to succeed is both real and personal, and you’re suddenly expected to handle everything. Yourself. Talk about a steep learning curve.

So that’s why we do what we do.

Firstly, we design, build, host and support websites. Real people, based in the UK, working to understand what your business needs and delivering something that genuinely adds value.

But we also understand a website is just part of a bigger picture. In reality, for businesses to grow, simply having a website is not enough – which is why we offer advice and services relating to social media marketing, email campaign management, data analytics, data privacy, customer relationship management and more.

There is no point for us to offer these services if small businesses can’t afford them – so our fundamental principle is to work hard, to work quickly and to leverage the best open-source technologies available so that we can provide genuinely affordable web design services.

How we do what we do

We want you to love it

We want you to be proud of your website.

To us, that means delivering what you want, with as little hassle for you as possible, at a cost that doesn’t make you wince. Small business website design doesn’t need to be hard.

We’ll work with you to understand what your website needs to achieve. We’re always happy to advise, and we certainly don’t expect you to care about the technicalities. We love that stuff, but you don’t need to.

We’ll propose a solution that combines clean, contemporary design with the best balance of technology to meet your needs and budget.

More about us


Easy on the eye, easy on the budget

Talking pounds and pence

We’re acutely aware of the importance of value, as well as understanding up front how much things are going to cost. So we work really hard to be clear about our fees, and then work equally as hard at sticking to them.

Obviously, some of our projects are more complex than others, and our fees reflect that. So, while we would need to discuss the details of any project before arriving at a personalised quote, we can tell you that:

  • Our typical ‘brochure’ websites generally range between £1500 and £2000;
  • Our e-commerce sites are more complex, and generally range between £2000 and £4000

If we provide web hosting and ongoing technical support for you, then there will be monthly fees for those services. Those fees typically range between £15 and £20 per month, depending on what you services you need. We also offer a Managed Service to ensure that the content of your site stays up-to-date. 

We don’t aspire to be the cheapest web designers in town – we aspire to providing the best value.

Serious about data privacy

GDPR ‘Privacy By Design’

Data privacy is a serious issue if you are running a website, whether it’s for a commercial business or not.

Which is why we build GDPR-compliant data privacy protection into all new website projects.

We’re not lawyers, but we have committed over 12 months of work to understanding the implications of the new data regulations for us (as service provider and Data Processors) and our clients (the Data Controllers).

This means that we can:

  • Build solutions that minimise the data privacy implications from the outset;
  • Advise on the content and scope of Privacy Policies;
  • Deliver solutions using compliance-assured Data Centres and 3rd party processors;
  • Work with you to ensure that you can meet your GDPR obligations.

We’ve also developed a package of free GDPR-specific articles that can help you get up to speed. For the bloggers out there, why not check out our GDPR article on
