Thoughtfully crafted websites for small businesses

Big ol' brands just aren't our cuppa

When we’re in the studio, we care about one thing: growing small businesses.

Every website design package, every consultation session, every gosh darn penny and pound has been designed, revised, and optimised to maximise return on investment for indie brands.

And we know that your business is one-of-a-kind

Our small Bristolian website design studio blends the latest tried-and-tested website design, SEO, UX and accessibility expertise with a tailored, personal approach.

Now let’s find out how we could work together.

As a person who used to do zero planning and a LOT of winging it, Studio Cotton has been a godsend!

Aime knows what she is talking about. She has helped to clarify the areas I need to focus on and how to do it.

Can’t recommend Studio Cotton enough! Aime was overflowing with useful info and everything seems less daunting.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Studio Cotton – in fact, I would recommend that any small business reaches out for some advice and support at some kind of level.

My monthly marketing consultations with Aime have been exactly what I needed to grow my business.

Smart, Creative,
& Kind

Bristolians in business

We’re a terribly selfish website design studio really.

We only work with clients, brands and projects that really excite our small team of passionate small-business supporters.

And we prioritise to our company values: smart, creative, and kind.

Smart

Pragmatic and logical to almost a fault, we meticulously identify opportunities to maximise our clients return on investment.

Creative

We’re incredibly proud to be an innovative small business web studio.

Tacking challenges, solving problems, making something where there was once nothing. That’s our jam.

Kind

Running a small business is really. Freaking. Hard. We know more than most, as many of our team members run their own business too.

Every project comes with big sploosh of kindness and a whole heap of emotional generosity, because we are truly, genuinely there for you.

Sharing helpful stuff around web design for small businesses

Instead, you can tuck in to more delicious free and practical advice for creative small business owners.

Totes social social media

Our founder Aime has a very unhealthy relationship with social media. The upside is that we invest way too much time and expertise into sharing original helpful content that’ll help any small business have a better website.

We hope we can convince you to follow Studio Cotton, and we promise there will be no blurry PowerPoints, quirky office dogs, or obligatory Christmas jumpers.

“This is the best Instagram page I follow. Like, if I had to only follow one other page, it would be this one.”  – Ivy & Gold

Not to brag (ok it’s a total brag) but we get quite a few thoughtful and enthusiastic comments about our Instagram content. Follow us for heaps of bitesize advice, Q&As, checklists and more.
