More than a digital agency.

Applecado is a small but seriously effective web development agency based in North Hampshire, servicing clients all around the world.

With over 15 years industry experience our small but skilled team work hard for our clients, going the extra mile to produce top quality websites and applications. We are fuelled by good quality coffee & delicious home-made cakes (which we are more than willing to share), and an unhealthy addiction to the internet.

We love the web.

How we work.

Step One: Plan

1. PLAN

We write a specification, create a site-map and wireframe the site ensuring we have the features you expect to see.


Step Two: Design

2. DESIGN

We design any pages, elements and assets required for the project and give you time to sign them off as approved.


Step Three: Develop

3. DEVELOP

We build the project according to the specification, crafting the code with performance, security and maintenance in mind.


Step Four: Test

4. TEST

We test the website in all current browsers and on various different platforms, and then hand it over to you for approval.


Step Five: Launch

5. LAUNCH

Once you are happy with the work we have completed, we set it live and everyone celebrates.


Step Six: Support

6. SUPPORT

We support you and the website. We can add features, make changes, or just help with day to day management.

We are proud that the sites we build last longer than the industry average.
Many of our sites are now over 7 years old because of the excellent support and maintenance we offer. They are still fast, secure and loved by our clients, their customers and visitors.

We have happy clients.

  • Thinker/Doer

    Applecado's approach to building websites using bespoke written code has allowed us to do things other web agencies would have been unable to deliver.

    Projects that come out of our studio are rarely straight-forward and often present challenges specific to them, be it user experience for multiple audiences on a large, content managed, corporate information centre - or finding appropriate ways to engage people in a new brand with social media on an e-commerce site.

    Alex and Nicky have always offered knowledgeable advice, proved they can meet deadlines, been on-hand for support when needed. Every job we have produced together I have been proud to put our name on.

  • Virgin Unite

    It was a great pleasure working with Applecado to build the online platform for Virgin Mobile USA's FREE.I.P. program. At every step of the project they responded quickly to our needs while continuing to deliver a high quality product. Applecado quickly became a company we knew we could rely on.

  • Aaron Rudd Creative

    As a freelance designer, I was relieved to have found a reliable developer in Applecado, who I can send designs to for them to build and have a quick and hassle free experience. Attention to detail is key for me to get the most from my designs and I'm pleased to be working with Applecado.

  • Fhoke

    We've been fortunate enough to find Applecado to outsource the over-flow of development work during those busy months. It's very cost effective for us and is a far better solution than many freelancers' "fire and forget" approach to projects. Alex is forming a great development house at Applecado who we can rely on to get the job done and to get it right. We look forward to a long term working relationship.
