We’re a hybrid agency in the truest sense.

There are lots of companies out there that are talented at design and bring in specialists to do technical work, while others are good technicians but need assistance with the arty bits.

From the start, our vision was to cultivate an agency that mixed quality design and leading technology across all media platforms. We bring both together under one roof, along with some communications, publishing and strategic clout.

You’ll see our passion in what we do every day through our work.

Website Design & Build

Our mantra is ‘technology by design’.
We’re driven by exceptional creative execution – websites that don’t just look good or work well, but do both and more. However good the car salesman, you wouldn’t buy an Aston Martin with a 900cc engine under the bonnet. Likewise, a 500 horsepower Robin Reliant. (The Robin Reliant, in particular, sounds mighty dangerous.)

We want your website to attract people to your brand, affect your bottom line, make life easier, and perhaps even change the way you work.

Content Managment Systems

We’re no sausage factory.
We’re supple and flexible, and we’re here to develop applications that fit your business and its objectives like a glove.

Experience tells us that our clients spend more time logged into their content management system (CMS) than their website, so it’s important to develop an engine that’s not only functional and intuitive, but well-designed too. We know most people don’t care about technology, but when it works well and looks the part, it can make a friend of anyone. 

For the geekier among you, the CMS is on Version 3.0, based on the open source CakePHP framework. The CMS is modular, meaning that once a base system is set-up, new modules and functionality can be 'plugged-in' at a later date as your business and the website grows. Example Phase II elements tend to include Blogs, eCommerce, Galleries, Media Centres and Member
Areas (with log-in).

Consultancy

We’re opinionated – in a good way.
We like to have fun, but we also take what we do seriously. Good graphic design drives sales and awareness. A website stands as your shop front to the world. That’s why we’re opinionated. We
want every project to stand up to the highest scrutiny. If what we do doesn’t make a difference to what you do, then we’re not doing our jobs.

It’s business, not a game – even when we’re building you a game.
