Year Founded
2002
Core started its journey in 2002 and has grown over the past two decades into a digital agency dedicated to providing memorable website experiences for our clients. As the team has developed over the years, Core has expanded its initial horizons to include all aspects of website design, development and management.

Our work process centres around five key project management principles; Discover, Design, Develop, Deliver, Support. This management ethos helps to provide a focused structure to any project, while mutually agreed outcomes are delivered at the end of each stage. Of course, we also understand and appreciate the fact that digital development rarely works in straight lines and we pride ourselves in our flexibility to deal with any amendments or customisations our clients wish to put on the above process.

For us, our clients have to remain central to any project. Their unique set of requirements is what shapes our delivery and allows us to deliver that personable approach which we believe achieves success. We want to know what your 'bottom line' is and help deliver it.

The world of digital is an exciting and ever-developing one, but we understand this fast-paced environment can leave some businesses struggling to grab a foothold. Our ambition is to get digital working for you.
