About Blueocto

Who are Blueocto?

Blueocto is a female-led team of web developers, with over a decade in creating websites for small and medium-sized businesses and charities all over the UK.

We care about our clients and about doing right by them, their customers and their business.

We know how hard it can be to start and grow a business because we’ve done it!

That means that when you decide to spend your money with us, we know how big a deal it is, we know it might be a leap of faith, we know you are probably anxious about it, we know you are placing trust in us, and we know how precious that is. It’s important to us that we are affordable.

Getting the right person for the task at hand means you’ll get the right results. There are no smoke and mirrors, we don’t baffle you with jargon, we pride ourselves on being clear and concise.

That’s why we believe in collaboration; when you choose to work with Blueocto, we become a team, we combine our expertise with yours, to make a change.

We are goal-focussed to make sure you reach your long-term ambitions.

We actively seek to make people’s lives easier… sharing useful articles, sharing our tips and knowledge on our Blog.

We’re advocates for web accessibility and inclusion in all its forms, and especially in web design and development. We see a future where accessibility and inclusion is the norm, not a “nice to have” and we encourage all of our clients to think the same.

High code standards and focus on quality come from the passion for our work. We take the time to get things right the first time, so you can trust that you’re in safe hands.

It’s important to us to put something back into our local community, we are passionate about Tech for Good, using our skills to support charities, CICs and local, homegrown, hard-working small businesses – that’s what drives us.
