HOW MANY WRITERS DO YOU NEED FOR YOUR NEXT WEBSITE PROJECT?
We are often asked this question, so we've built a handy calculator that gives you the answers your need to properly schedule and resource the production of high-quality content without project rollout delays.
Running insightful and effective Discovery phases that meet the UK Government's Digital by Default Standards takes some skill. These lessons and tips will help in-house teams do the business.

and OUR NETWORK OF DIGITAL ExpertS...
We call together the talented experts we need to best deliver the goals of each project. Our little black book has been built up over the years of working with some of the best people in digital: user researchers, content strategists, developers, and UX designers.
Going about our business...
We believe a business should be more than a money making exercise and we treat it as an opportunity to make a modest, but positive difference in the world by:
adopting a state of Lagom (a Swedish word that loosely translates as balanced)
working with good people doing good things - check out our great clients below
treating our clients and partners with respect and fairness
never taking on too much work at one time to ensure we give all our clients our full attention
stepping away if we aren’t adding value - we'll tell you and direct you to the right place
sharing our ideas and experiences for others to benefit from - check out the Lagom Blog
striving to minimise our footprint and off-setting what we do use
giving 5% of our annual profits to charity
drinking lots of (Fair Trade) tea
Our wonderful clients
We like to work with great organisations who make a positive difference...
