Pragmatic is a Brighton-based web agency with a team of around thirty talented designers, developers, support and delivery WordPress specialists. We transform the way that companies operate online, across the nation and around the world.
We’re Pragmatic by name, pragmatic by nature. Your website needs to reflect your business objectives and priorities – every page and feature must justify its existence and cost.
A good website is never finished. Our WordPress specialists build for iteration and put value on maintaining flexibility and agility; leveraging the power of the WordPress ecosystem for your benefit.
Corporate Social Responsibility
As Pragmatic has grown over the past 5 years, we remain absolutely committed to giving back at grass roots level, sharing our WordPress and digital expertise.
We offer our services at a discounted rate for charity and nonprofit initiatives, examples of which include, Hearing Link, Join In and Internet Matters. Further to this we offer consultation for small (and often local) business – whether that be formally, or more informally through speaking and collaborating at community events.
We work in partnership with BDMA, a Brighton based education initiative. As a company we get out into schools to teach classes, offering follow up and ongoing support for work-experience pupils and apprentices.
We’re committed to the WordPress community and are always on the lookout for new opportunities in Brighton and further afield to teach, inspire and mentor within WordPress and web development.
Our team’s passion extends to giving back to the WordPress community through knowledge sharing and have presented talks in the UK, Spain, Norway and the USA about running a WordPress business, WordPress theming, development and freelancing.
Our team has presented the following talks at industry events:
