Canvass is a website design and build company. Our services are tailored for business owners, offering them a clear, modern solution to getting their ideas online.
The idea for Canvass was a moment of clarity as we decided ‘there has to be a better way’. An easier solution for business owners to create a website and take advantage of the web.
We’ve created a fresh approach that respects quality, time and cost considerations for businesses and navigates them through a sea of technology.
Through experience we’ve witnessed the changing landscape of the web and the variety of solutions available to anybody embarking on launching an online idea. Technology and process often create barriers and make it feel challenging to achieve your aims.
Many businesses use self-build template solutions and they have risen in popularity as an accessible way to create a website. Unfortunately they can be challenging and time consuming to use and the results may not match the expectations.
In comparison it’s possible to use a specialist agency to create a bespoke website, where every aspect of the design and build matches your unique requirements. This approach can offer a near perfect solution though the timescale and budget level can be out of reach for many micro and small enterprises.
Small businesses need support as they progress and their website needs to grow with their ambition. To respond to this our website design, build and hosting solution offers a way for businesses to receive a service tailored for them relative to their needs.
Our approach combines clarity, collaboration and formula to deliver our solution. Each project relies on a tried and tested process, making the journey feel supportive, purposeful and economical. This helps us include our clients, deliver results and bring their ideas to life online.
We are proud to create design led websites that present a professional and functional platform for their owners. As a business we are also continually searching for ways to improve and make a difference to our clients and our community.
Being a better business
We passionately believe that any business can be a force for good. Helping solve social and environmental challenges while still considering profit.
We are part of the Better Business Act coalition, supporting the campaign to help change UK Law.
Making a difference
We have partnered with The Young Lives Foundation, a Kent based charity who support young people to achieve their potential and lead fulfilled lives
For every website we launch, it provides two young people the opportunity to attend an activity group, providing them access to resources and opportunities.
As part of our Environmental Policy we design, build and host our websites with 100% renewable energy.
We are signatories of the Sustainable Web Manifesto and The Green Web Foundation certify our sites as being hosted Green.
As partners we offer a balanced approach and bring complimentary skills to our projects
