Cutting edgyness

We create web applications that benefit people and their communities. We’ve won awards for our innovative projects from Yahoo!, the BBC, Sony, Hewlett-Packard and UnLtd.

We’re thinkers, designers and engineers, always watching for fresh possibilities. The web is now real-time, location-aware, multi-screen, mobile, in HTML5 and fundamentally open. We know when to pick the right tools for the right projects, but never use technology for its own sake.

Apps for change

Our apps bring new opportunities, helping people to make the most of their lives by collecting, organising, sharing and collaborating. They come in all shapes and sizes, from large-scale interactive websites to the tiniest of widgets.

Our work involves:

  • designing and building bullet-proof apps
  • researching and inventing prototypes
  • creating technology that’s fit-for-purpose
  • solving challenging social and technical problems
  • creating tools, data visualisations and distributed content

We specialise in a number of web technologies – in particular, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, SVG and Node.js, along with Python, Ruby, PHP and other languages.

In the community

We believe in empowering people with new skills and creating grassroots communities.

In 2010, we founded Async – a popular web technology meetup group, with sessions running twice a month in Brighton & Hove.

In 2012, we established the Lab for the Recently Possible – a venue for experimental technology events and collaborative workspace.

Big impact collaborations

It’s easy to do good work when the core concept is strong and the mission can make a real impact.

For example, Dharmafly has been working with the BBC World Service since 2007 on a collection of applications that help them reach out to their community with world news, involve them in conversations and convey complex issues with simple visual interfaces.
