We like to build stuff… sometimes complicated stuff… for people who like to make a difference. We work with nonprofits, charities and galleries to help them navigate the complex digital landscape and create great digital experiences for their audiences.

We're a bootstrapped startup that has grown rapidly (from 10 to over 35 in the team so far) based solely on the quality of the work we've been producing.

Uniquely, we base all our solutions on open source products, helping our work to have the greatest possible impact. In particular we do a lot of our work on the Drupal CMS platform and a Non profit CRM platform called CiviCRM. Our clients include Charities such as Wikimedia, Farm Africa and Amnesty, galleries such as the Photographers Gallery and Craft Central but also companies, trade associations and government bodies.
