We believe that business can be a force for good and we believe in the power of the web to create positive change. We were founded in 2007 by husband and wife, Tom and Vineeta Greenwood, with the aim of helping positive organisations thrive online. Our customer-first approach soon led us to identify that WordPress was the perfect platform to meet our clients’ needs and so we decided to specialise and became London’s first WordPress agency. We went on to help transform the WordPress space, demonstrating WordPress at scale for large organisations and helping purpose-led business and charities to achieve their goals. We continue to push boundaries and are now leading the WordPress agency world in web performance and sustainability.
Create the best websites in the world, use our business as a force for good, and help to accelerate the shift to an Internet that's good for people and planet
Ambitiously Sustainable. Positively Brave.
As a certified B Corporation, we believe that business can be used as a force for good. This belief stems from our core values, which underpin everything we do – from the services we offer to the clients we work with and the staff we hire.
As pioneers of the London WordPress agency scene, we’ve been making world class websites for positive organisations since we were founded by Tom and Vineeta Greenwood in 2007. Our diverse team of experts are all passionate about technology, design and sustainability.
More than our skills though, is our genuine care for our clients. We have built our business through word of mouth and repeat business because we believe that making our clients happy and successful is what really matters. We’re privileged to work with great clients from Ecover to UNICEF, delivering best in class work that is sustainable by design.
