Chameleon Studios Ltd was founded in 2004 by Chas Ashford-Hodges and Garth Lauckner after many enjoyable years working as freelancers in a multitude of graphic agencies, website design studios, gaming start-ups, live event and video production teams.

We are an ethical agency at heart and love working on projects that have a human or environmental focus. We find this type of work really fulfilling and it connects our work with real life, putting ‘people first’ is a core value we aspire to every day whether it be our clients or their customers.

It’s not just Chas and Garth however, the whole Chameleon team are experts in bringing brands and websites to life across the ever-changing digital landscape, adding creative inspiration, technical expertise and ideas to every project we work on. When you collaborate with us you’ll get to know the wider team of experts from the start. At Chameleon the people you’ll be working with are the designers and developers who care about your business, have a passion for the work they do, and a commitment to deliver the very best solution.

Over the years we’ve worked with a wide variety of clients from imaginative start-ups to large multi-national organisations. We view this diversity as a strength, allowing us to gain inspiration and knowledge from the wide range of sectors we work in and solutions we deliver. Whatever the size of your project our pro-active approach involves you at every stage including research and planning, collaborative workshops, flexible design iterations, a proven development process for each custom solution we craft and responsive support once the website has launched.

Working with us is very straightforward, we listen to your ideas, plans and objectives for your project and then select the best solution to fit. We don’t believe in hard selling and always have our clients best interests at heart when offering sensible and impartial advice.

If we sound like a good fit for your project please get in touch to discuss your ideas, we’re happy to help or advise and deliver a project that you’ll be proud of.

Core values

We apply our core values to each and every project we work on

  1. Collaboration
    The best results always come from collaborating together either in person or more recently online. We listen to your requirements, then bring our ideas and expertise to the table, delivering the perfect solution for your project, timescales and budget.
  2. Simplify
    We simplify any layout or function wherever possible, whether it’s a tricky design challenge, software interface function or in the thousands of lines of code we produce.
  3. Friendly
    We like to keep it real – we’re friendly, we listen and we respond in your language. We want you to enjoy the web design process as much as the end result.
  4. Helpful
    Nothing is more satisfying than helping people out, whether working with a charity, a cash strapped startup or an international brand. We really enjoy getting people online and looking good.
  5. Environment
    A creative working environment is what makes us happy. Modern technology, a relaxing environment, creative music playlists, a whiteboard full of ideas, great coffee on tap and a range of naughty biscuits ready for dunking.
  6. User Focused
    We believe the most successful websites are focused on your customers, and not those that simply follow trends or the whims of personal preference. We work with you to ensure your audience is put first.
  7. Details
    We spend a vast amount of time and effort on the details. Every decision needs to be well thought out, expertly coded and every pixel needs to be in exactly the right place. We spend a ridiculous amount of effort on the attention to detail. Every pixel needs to be in exactly the right place.
