As a design agency, we do all the things you’d expect. Like web design, branding and print. And website optimisation, testing and consultancy. But as a design agency for charities and social enterprises, what we actually do often means changed lives, bigger donations and spreading the good word about great work. Not to mention saving our clients’ money (something that is always best spent on furthering their cause).
You’ll find no shareholders here. Goodcircle is a regulated Community Interest Company with a commitment to working with charities and social enterprises. Each and every penny of profit comes full circle to be reinvested back into our little social enterprise – helping others change the world – one project at a time.
From animal charities in Ashford to climate change campaigners up in Canterbury, right now, we’re starting local – with good causes who we count as our neighbours. Soon we’ll move onwards, upwards and outwards – tup’ North, East and West.
Goodcircle's mission is to provide free or affordable web and graphic design services to small charities, social enterprises, and other non-profit organisations that might not otherwise have access to design expertise.
Trust is an essential part of the relationship with our clients and partners. We strive to always be honest, open, ethical, and fair.
People achieve great things when they work together. We combine our expertise with others to get the best possible result.
We recognise and embrace the diversity of people. It's our responsibility to advocate for their needs by practicing inclusive design.
There's always more to learn. We listen to experts, explore new ideas, and share our own expertise with others.
We choose to work with positive people on positive projects. We will decline to work on a project if it doesn't reflect our values.
Bigger is not always better. We choose agility, flexibility, and personal service over staff and buildings.
I’m Matt Obee and I run Goodcircle. A UX/UI designer by trade, I’ve earned my stripes in this industry, clocking up 14 years’ agency, client-side and freelance experience. From Asos to Sofology, onto Hornby and Harrods, my past happy clients are an illustrious lot. But beyond the big brands – the household names and global firms – what I enjoy most is the work for those with a cause. The ones determined to make a difference in the world.
At Goodcircle there’s no going round and around from department to department. No meetings with sales people or account managers. It’s Matt – founder, project manager, UX/UI designer – in the past for everything from high street blue-chip brands to government agencies. Then there’s our network of talented freelance creatives and digital natives – winning hearts to make the donation, shaping jump-up-and-down digital products that make people stop and stare.
We bring in superstar expertise when it’s needed for a particular job, which means that you only pay for the people that work on your project. Our fixed fees are set with modest charity budgets in mind and we'll never try to sell you things that you don't need. What's more, we're too small to charge VAT so you'll benefit from an immediate 20% saving.
