Why use a Reading web design and development agency?

Back in 2003, Rouge Media were the new kids, working from kitchen tables and Reading coffee shops, dreaming big and taking on the world of bloated and inefficient graphic design agencies. A world we had just left.

The idea of a ‘digital agency’ was still new, and there were few agencies in Reading that could combine engaging sales-focused creativity, with powerful functionality, to deliver effective websites that did ‘things’. This is the agency Rouge quickly became. 

Rouge is a specialist Reading web design and development agency. We create websites that sell by solving your communication challenges with powerful, focused websites.

It’s not uncommon for us to rescue website projects from one-man-bands and smaller teams that run out of skill or resources, or both.

What we offer – long term partnerships and websites built to win

Being a Reading web agency, we have the best of both worlds. We enjoy leafy village life, perfect for creativity and productivity, whilst being well connected and in easy reach of our clients.

We know that meeting our clients is important, and at the very least we will have face-to-face kick-off discovery sessions and creative presentation meetings.

Website projects are complicated, and for projects to run smoothly and have a successful outcome, building trust and understanding between project managers and stakeholders is critical. Rouge will become an extension of your team by building a close long-term partnership.

Every website we create is different. Yet all possess the same qualities. A Rouge website is beautiful, clever, fast and secure. This is an overview of what we offer:

A big London agency – that’s a safe bet, right?

If you’re a big brand with a big budget, then you’ll likely get the gold service from your London agency (and you’ll undoubtedly be paying for it), but large London agencies can be impersonal if you’re not one of the hero clients. The senior team are usually working on the largest clients, leaving the smaller clients in the hands of less experienced team members.

Have I mentioned the fees? London agency day rates can be double local agency rates. The Shoreditch address and the big brand client roster come at a price.

Out-of-town agencies like Rouge can offer much better value. Being a more focused and compact agency means the whole team can work with clients directly, wearing their shoes and treating each client as their most important.

We don’t outsource or offshore any design or development work. All of our production work is done here in our Reading studio; we problem-solve together and win together.

We’re neither the faceless humungo agency nor the overrun micro agency. Rouge is capable, available and efficient. We can guarantee that your project is going to be treasured and protected. It’ll be a success for your business, make you look good, and be the next best thing in our portfolio too.

Rouge = Local agency value: London agency clout
