WordPress website development

Create compelling digital experiences with WordPress which delight users and make content publishing easy.

We’ve helped clients and their marketing teams leverage the power of WordPress to create engaging digital experiences for customers while dramatically improving their website development and content publishing workflows.


Our relationship with WordPress

While we're generally platform agnostic, and always recommend the most appropriate technologies for meeting the needs of our clients and their users, there are some products that we love working with again and again. WordPress is one. Our team has built and supported scores of websites using the open source content management system, utilising the platform's flexibility and extensibility to develop rich experiences for users while making life easier for those behind the scenes. Working as an extension of your team, and employing Agile methodologies, we bring a wealth of experience successfully delivering projects in a wide variety of settings, industries and sectors.

Expert WordPress development

Our technologists have been working with WordPress for many years, taking advantage of its flexibility and extensibility to build enterprise websites, microsites, portals, blogs, forums, multilingual websites and more. We’ll help you unlock the power of the platform to deliver exceptional digital experiences for your users and greater efficiency for your teams.

Effective product delivery

We assemble a bespoke team for every project, hand picking strategists, creatives, project managers and technologists to delve deep into your audiences, and focus on the goals that mean the most to you. This results in a site that meets the needs of your users today, supports continuous improvement and provides a platform for future innovation.

Fast, secure, scalable websites

We're partners of WP Engine, providers of premium managed cloud hosting for WordPress websites. This helps us deliver websites with industry-leading security, lightning-fast page load times, and with hosting that scales automatically to meet demand - no matter how much it might change from one day to the next.

Building a storytelling platform for the ESU

We helped the English-Speaking Union (ESU) celebrate 100 years of promoting better communication between people of all cultures and countries with a story-driven site to engage their audiences.

Doubling conversion rates for Unicef UK

Following the website launch, conversion rates among website visitors more than doubled, with cash donations increasing by 55% per visitor. The site also scooped several awards, including a People’s Lovie Award.

Redesigning Sightsavers digital journeys

We embarked upon a design and UX project to define audiences and create new user journeys. Rather than maintaining several WordPress installations, we combined them all under a single multisite install.



We were extremely impressed with the research and strategy Manifesto worked with us to create. Their interpretation of what this meant for our new website made them the natural choice as our digital agency. We’re looking forward to developing this relationship and seeing how much further our digital capabilities can evolve to support our work for children.
