Honeystone is a web design and software development studio based in Devizes, Wiltshire.

We are a small team of dedicated software developers, designers, UI/UX researchers, and much more. At Honeystone we strive to be great; to provide a service that completely blows our competitors out of the water. This is only achieved thanks to our incredible clients, and a dedication to tried, tested, and proven methods.

Our philosophy

Build it right, make it last

Honeystone philosophy icon

One of the most important ideas we incorporate at Honeystone is that nothing can be taken for granted, that is we assume nothing. We have seen time and time again that assumptions at the beginning of a project often prove inaccurate by its completion. To use an old, but nonetheless true, cliché, our success depends on the success of our clients, so it's of the utmost importance that we not only develop the right thing, but also that it's lasting.

Scalability is important. Every project should be capable of growing and evolving, as our client's interests do, throughout the lifetime of their organisation.

Meet users needs first

User experience is paramount. Scalability is no-good if our client's clients can't commit. Every project is designed with user experience, and all that it entails, at the forefront. This means a focus on testing, analytics and proven results.

To achieve this, we employ a multifaceted team with a strong focus on quality and measurable success. Our software development is entirely test driven, meaning that we write tests before we write any code. Our user centric acceptance tests are approved and signed off by our clients before any work may commence.

Every project we develop is subject to a rigorous quality assurance process. A significant part of this is dedicated to usability and, in particular, accessibility. We strongly hold that everyone, regardless of ability, should be able to access, interact with, and benefit from the projects that we develop.

This includes ensuring that people who are colour blind are provided enough contrast to be able to distinguish between colours, right up to ensuring that the project is completely accessible to assistive technologies such as screen readers.

Provide a meaningful experience

Of course the most important aspect of any website or app is its content, without which it is nothing. We internalise a content first approach to all builds, ensuring we always meet the needs of a project's audience first, and then compound that with striking brand presence.

At our core we are a creative team, willing to put any idea through its paces. With our careful and measured approach, supported by critical analysis, we are able to produce not only stunning applications, but applications that drive user interaction.

Committed to you (our clients)

A Honeystone project is never truly 'finished', and we feel this sentiment really sets us apart. We boast a long term commitment to client relations, and provide comprehensive support, maintenance and after-care services for all projects. This includes, but is absolutely not limited to, ensuring your project is regularly updated to protect it from the multitude of security threats exposed by sheer virtue of existing on the web.

Our clients are never left in the dark. You will have direct communication with every member of your project team, throughout your project, with the ability to call meetings or halt proceedings at any time.

We never stop learning

Our whole team is encouraged and supported to engage in continuous professional development. This ensures that clients benefit from the latest developments in web technology helping them to gain and retain a competitive advantage.

Community and wider environment

As governments and consumers place growing pressure on companies to make their supply chains cleaner and more sustainable we offer green energy solutions using 100% renewable geothermal and hydro power energy.

These clean cloud hosting solutions are underpinned by equipment recycling, waste management and clean energy cooling systems. With some data centres using the same power as a large town the wider environmental benefits of cleaner energy are significant.

Honeystone also believes that organisations should give something back to the communities they serve. To this end we proudly support a wide variety of local charities and community organisations by sponsoring their websites or providing a discount on our websites or maintenance services.
