HONESTLY GOOD WEB DEVELOPMENT.
In an industry full of hot air and broken promises, it’s difficult to find the right people for your digital project.
It has become common practice for projects to run over budget, for developers to promise delivery but fail to meet original deadlines and for businesses to choose the cheapest option when the same buzzwords are being used in pitches.
This bad practice is eroding how people value and respect development companies and we’re not interested in contributing to this negative trend. We’re interested in developing projects that go beyond client intentions through realistic, reliable and genuine service provision.
LOCAL, ACCESSABLE, DEPENDABLE AND INTERNATIONAL
We are based in Birmingham, the technology heart of the UK, complimented with an employee network of international highly skilled developers who are leaders in their respective fields. Local talent pools can only reach so far, so we believe in remote working through trust, collaboration and face to face interactions. Our track record of success validates our team's working methodology. As a result our strong and experienced team are highly regarded both technically and creatively, developing interactive experiences that bring people together in and beyond the digital world.
We want to build progressive and influential web projects which improve and maintain conversations between our clients and their audiences. With an investment in new wave UI design, we have become experts in user experience and coding fundamentals to produce technology that enhances the way we live and participate digitally.
WEBSITE & BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPMENT.
Bespoke website developers
Had a great idea for your business or perhaps looking to start a new venture from scratch? Our passion and specialty love to get in from the ground up and help you develop your idea into designs, functional specifications through to the final go live with customers and ongoing support.
We use Laravel framework on PHP as the working foundation to build the website application you need. Allowing military grade security, speed, flexibility and clean tidy bug free code from our team of developers. When combined with twitter bootstrap, Vue.js, React and the latest design UI trenders you can be sure your software not only succeeds but holds value and becomes a key valued asset in your business.
Brochure sites with an edge
Can we be honest? If all you are looking for is a simple website with images, some information and contact details then you may not need us or any other web agency anymore. Sites like squarespace are designed with generic out the box templates for you to set up. So it is not always cost effective for small budgets to pay us to reinvent the wheel. However if you need help setting these up or require a custom brand, website design and functionality then of course we are here to help you. We are experts on platforms such as Wordpress, allowing us to build you your own simple branded design with custom functility atop as required.
Looking to create an application stack with decentralised & immutable interactions and ownership? Maybe a 24/7 decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) without middlemen and directly governed by the community? We can help you.
Our Blockchain Stack
Utilising either the Ethereum blockchain with solidity smart contracts or the new kid on the block Solana and its rust language we have the in house skills. We use Hardhart with ethers.js or web3.js library to connect your choice of frontend from React or Angular pushing to either onchain or IPFS storage. If this language means little to you don't worry, we choose the right tools for your requirements.

The words of ANDREW WILKINSON -
We've worked closely together and enjoyed a commercial, creative and powerful relationship which has provided many successes for our clients. The strength of the relationship is formed by Pete and Hayley's ability to produce amazing UX, web development, web marketing and online services.
Our relationship started from humble beginnings when Pete was recommended to us and we delivered a major project together for a key client. From there ScotchEgg worked with OWB supporting many digital projects and in 2010 we took the opportunity to actually join forces and work out the same offices in Digbeth to deliver a complete full service for our clients.
The team complements each other not only creatively, but we have different skill sets too. We enjoy a strong friendship. We enjoy working together. We're happy to share different commercial opportunities and ultimately we know that we'll both deliver and we'll both provide extensive services for clients and prospects.
We look forward to working with the guys at Scotch Egg for years to come and continue to develop a strong, agile partnership in all things Internet-based.
