Public sector web that works

Our expertise

dxw makes engaging, smart web projects for the public sector. We’re passionate about public service, and we’re here to help you deliver agile, contemporary digital projects at a cost that works for everyone. We know how to use the web to make modern, usable informational and transactional sites. Whatever you’re working on, we’d love to talk to you about it.

How we do it


We run face to face interviews, card sorting sessions, online research and more to ensure that the sites we build are grounded on a shared understanding of users' actual needs.


dxw has been making websites for the public sector since 2008. We do lots of work with WordPress and Ruby on Rails, and between them, we've never met a requirement we couldn't deliver.


Our WordPress hosting is custom-built for public sector clients, available through G-Cloud, and currently being accredited to IL2.


Good security and sensible analysis of risk underpins all our work. We're ready and able to help our clients meet whatever information assurance standard is required.

What our clients say

Having hit the ground running, the dxw team continued to work quickly and efficiently throughout the project, possessing a ‘can do’ attitude and problem solving skills to back that up.
