We build things, for you

What do we offer?

Block 8 specialise in web development, and we're really good at it. We don't pretend to be a "full service" agency and deliver mediocre results across many disciplines. We do one thing, and we deliver exceptional results.

We're at our absolute best working on complicated back-end web development projects, things like bespoke content management systems, eCommerce platforms, APIs and anything else that would usually scare most developers away.

We're happy working with companies of any size, and any type, from small creative agencies to multi-national corporations.

Why work with us?

We don't believe in grouping developers into bands of "junior" or "senior" - the team at Block 8 are simply the best developers we could find, regardless of their background. We constantly push ourselves to learn new things, improve the skills we already have, and to do things better. Our team's skillset is diverse, so you can rest assured that we'll always use the best tool for any given job - but don't worry, we're not the type to jump onto every new technology that comes along.

We strongly believe in code quality, so much so that we built one of the most widely used PHP testing tools, and continue to invest heavily in its development.

Most importantly, we know what we're good at and what we're not, so we've built a network of some of the best freelancers and agencies in the business. If we don't have the skills in-house, we can still get the job done to the level of quality that you'll come to expect from working with us.

If you're an agency, you'll be pleased to hear our prices have been designed to allow you to engage us and still make a healthy profit within a normal agency charge-out rate. If you're not, you'll be even more pleased to hear we're cheaper than most other agencies!

What can we build?

Our team have built all sorts, ranging from bread-and-butter Wordpress web sites right through to content management systems for national radio stations and data-analysis systems running across hundreds of servers.

The projects we thrive on are the kind of projects that induce fear in your average development team. There's very little that you could ask us to build that would scare us.

You should definitely talk to us if you want to build:

  • Web applications or internal tools, such as information dashboards or communication tools
  • Data collection and analysis systems
  • Rapid prototypes for your new web-based business idea
  • Big, or complicated, web sites
  • eCommerce platforms and content management systems
  • APIs - perhaps to support mobile apps, or to connect two existing applications together

Is your idea not listed? Get in touch anyway, we'll almost certainly be able to help.
