Studio Cotton

Meet our
small business team

Just a small group of rather lovely creative Bristolians who are obsessed with small businesses.

Small, slow business

Work hard, play mildly

Where to start? Even though we write exceptional website content every darn day, crafting your own ‘about’ page is still a proper pickle.

So let’s start with saying we’re a small business filled with people who care an obscene amount about seeing other small businesses thrive.

We just want to see the world filled with more nice things and happy people.

That’s why we try our darnedest, exceed expectations, and then head home to our loved ones at 5:30pm.

What we stand for

Know our values, know Studio Cotton


All sincerity and no judgement – we respect your small business too much to not share the harder truths and provide feedback from our extensive experience and expertise.


Honesty is nothing without kindness; as a small business ourselves, we’re always empathetic to the challenges small businesses and their owners face.


It’s not a sexy word – but it is the right one. We pursue solutions and choices that just make sense based on all the factors – budget, time, goals, and most importantly, ROI.

Exclusively for small businesses

Consciously, specifically small

Since founding in 2016, we’ve only ever wanted to work with small businesses. Yep, we’re a little bit selfish – we pick the products and services that really rustle our jammies.

And in return, we’ve tailored every service, every package and every nugget of advice for small business life.

We understand small businesses have limited budgets – limited money, limited time, and limited brain space for all those creative, expert jobs.

That’s why we focus on efficient, practical and easy-to-follow solutions for all your website challenges.

Best investment I have made for my self-made website! I find Aime and the community advice is actionable with being overwhelming. Easy to understand and digest.
Elle Williamson
It's such a valuable membership which I'm chuffed to be in. I've always loved Aime's straight-talking advice on IG and this is just next level!
Amy Collins
I'm able to get expert answers to my DIY-website questions, as well as tips and insights I didn't even know I needed! This membership has already saved me loads of time and effort
I'm a one woman business, so having Aime to help direct me where to tweak small things for big long-term wins is such a great feeling.
Joy McMillan
Being able to ask questions specifically about my business is invaluable and has saved masses of time trying to find answers
Aime’s advice is always useful and bite sized and backed up with real world examples so super easy to understand and follow
Beckie Sims
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.
