A Brief History of GUM
Our story starts in 8th century, a little over 1200 years ago. Back then, our humble home, Reading, was known as Readingum and from there came our inspiration; it was time to bring back the GUM. Fortunately for us, in the 1200 years that followed, websites were invented, which gives us something to do during the day instead of researching local Anglo-Saxon history.
We’ve been making websites for over a year now, most of which you can find in the portfolio above. We usually work through WordPress but also take on work for Tumblr and Joomla sites, largely based on what the organisation we’re working with is after. If you don’t know what you need, we’ll guide you through it the whole way.
Our aim is to provide you with a site that you can update afterwards. If that means training you, we can do that too, but the goal is always for you to be able to add news/blogs and make small edits to the text whenever you need to. Some web designers are different and would like you to pay them for every change, but we believe websites should evolve with your business, and you’re the best person to make that happen. We design a great site, you update it until you need a new site, we design your next great site etc.
We’re a sister of TenSquared, a content marketing agency in Reading, and part of the Storgle Ltd family.
