Rouge is a specialist web development company. We are a rather nerdy team of website developers, designers, project managers and digital strategists. We have been brought together by one common goal – to create websites that make a real difference.
Bespoke Open Source Web Development
We tackle a broad range of website development challenges. This could be a clever technical start-up, a not-for-profit organisation, a public sector health website, an educational establishment, or a going-places tech company.
If we have a niche web development area it is tackling the tricky, unusual or interesting project that your typical design agency would have to outsource or avoid. Not us.
By filing a room with like-minded developers and UX designers, we are able to craft websites and web applications that meet the specific needs of your visitors and provide them with the optimum website experience.

Wirehive Top 50
We don't take gongs too seriously, but it's always nice to be recognised for hard work, creativity and innovation.
Developing digital experiences that perform
We have been doing this for a long time (some of us since the invention of the internet itself). Over this time we have continually adjusted our website development process to meet the needs of our clients. Seventeen plus years is a lot of learning. So, we feel we can confidently state; we offer a website development service like no-other:
Yep, this is a rare thing for an agency to have, but we put quality assurance high on our list.
- Full Quality Assurance and Quality Control throughout
We use our Project Hive for this. It’s a series of online, secure, shared documents. Where we record and communicate throughout every website project.
- Your own dedicated Project Manager
Guaranteeing success throughout the Rouge process.
- Checklists, documentation, sign-offs, and milestones throughout
We’ve borrowed this from the automotive industry. Your website is peer checked and reviewed at every stage.
- A clever combination of Waterfall and Agile project management
A flexible and human-focused approach to project management delivers project success. Budgets are controlled but room is left for opportunity and imagination.
- We build in measurable KPI’s from the start
By front-loading every project with a Discovery Phase, we are able to meet and surpass your requirements for any website development project we deliver.
"We are really happy with our new website, which is performing far better than our old one! It has given Aspen a cleaner image that really speaks to our core audience, and gets them to the information and pages they need without any fuss, which was our prime goal. The clarity of the design, the quality of the build has been reflected in a much lower bounce rate."
"Rouge were brilliant to work with. Knowledgeable, understood the project, and they worked together as a team, as well as with us. The website is fantastic and is everything we needed."
"The Junction has seen ticket sales increase, and more visitors are returning to the website and Junction venues. Good Job Rouge!"
System integration - websites that do stuff
Our development team are experts at integrating third-party services and database connectivity.
This means that your website becomes, what we call, ‘a website that does stuff’. It could be the cornerstone of your business data operations. It could be connected to your marketing CRM. It could be anything you need it to be.
One thing it won’t be is a static, two-a-penny template website. A website developed by Rouge is always targeted, ambitious and useful.
