Learn about us
We believe in the kindness economy, in putting people and the planet before profit.
A WordPress agency that's positive for people, positive for the planet and positive for businesses.
Lightly Salted was created in 2017 by Ollie Tigwell. Our founding principle was to help businesses and charities succeed through high-quality websites. But we also knew that our business needed to be a business with a purpose.
There are many negative perceptions of web design and agencies. We knew that we could change this with our attitude of honesty and authenticity.
Our customer first approach showed us that WordPress was the best platform to meet the needs of our clients. As a result, we have decided to specialise in WordPress and become Dorset’s first dedicated WordPress agency.
We all have a responsibility to look after people and the planet in our personal lives, but also in business. Lightly Salted is on a path to become a registered B Corporation and is a member of 1% For the Planet.
In 2021 Lightly Salted grew as Charlotte Beal joined the team. Charlotte is a brilliant designer, we love her exceptional creativity, ideas, and how she really listens to customer needs.
Positive for People
We believe that people matter and strive to be equitable and inclusive. We are a Living Wage employer and take part in helping to reduce poverty in our local community (Wimborne, Dorset).
Positive for the Planet
All our websites run on 100% renewable energy and each website that we create plants trees and offsets CO2. Our team’s carbon footprint is more than offset by supporting the best in climate action.
We offset with Ecologi, through Gold Standard and Eden Reforestation Projects.
Positive for Business
We believe in honesty and integrity so will never mislead or exploit our clients in the services or products that we provide. We believe that our purpose and values are a key differentiator and will help to drive change in our industry.
