We specialise in UX design, branding and website development for charities and purpose-led organisations. We have almost 20 years of experience in building purposeful brands, effective, user-focussed charity websites and award-winning fundraising campaigns.
Brand design is the process of curating (or evolving) how a cause is perceived and their offering, understood. When carried out thoughtfully and collaboratively, it provides causes with the power to influence, build trust and maximise engagement with audiences.
We build purposeful brands, refine existing brands and deliver comprehensive brand guidelines, empowering you to use your brand consistently and with sophistication.

Our approach enables you to work with a cross-section of our entire team to bring your campaign vision to life. Secure financial support, votes or action at scale.

The belief that you need to effectively ‘delete’ your website every few years and replace it with something better is outdated, costly and unnecessary.
Our client growth retainer is a data-first strategy that enables the iterative development of our sites to ensure we’re making constant improvements, elevating the user experience and ultimately moving you towards your goals faster with every month that passes.
The older your site gets, the better it should serve its purpose – not worse.
One of the most important yet underestimated foundations of a good process is the the ability to get the correct information from the outset. Each project starts with a team-to-team workshop to interrogate the brief and understand the core problem that we need to solve and this happens no matter what the project, budget or end goal of the work is. We do this because we will never assume to understand the needs of your end user, nor will we pretend to know your business better than you do.
Based on scoping, data and hopefully user insight, our UX process is user centric. We do all of the traditional work like creating site maps, wireframes and user journey's but unlike most, we base this on a combination of data and user insight with a focus on circular user journeys and conversion. This combination is how we solve the needs of your audience in the most impactful way possible.
Future proving at it's finest, our modular approach means you have control on keeping content up to date and evolving your site. At this point, we know the problem and so we ask the next question; How can we solve it? Ideating around the problem, we think outside the box not stopping at the obvious to solve user needs in innovative ways until we can design a prototype or a series of prototypes to test all or part of the solution with users quickly and effectively.
Campaign creative is a team affair at Studio Republic because we understand the value and importance of diversity of thought and the strength in taking a tailored approach to each campaign we work on. Although a campaign brief often starts with a set of goals, getting out entire team into one place to ideate and generate concepts means that we can challenge expectation and deliver concepts and assets for strategic and informed campaigns.
Our approach to code is no different to our other processes in that we will never assume. We will make recomendations from the scoping stage through to the build of the best CMS to meet your goals and create a user friendly back office so your team can take control once we are finished. Where we excel is in our testing process where we make sure you are running as quickly, accessibly, efficiently and bug free as possible based on the highest digital industry standards.
Our client services team aren’t like many others. They offer ongoing strategic insight, built on data and strategy. The key to creating impact is insight and so after go live, our Growth service will constantly evolve your website so that users are constantly getting a better and more tailored experience and you don't need to invest in a brand new site every two years.
