About Us


Creativity

Over the seventeen years Purepages Group has been in operation, the company has developed around one hundred websites for clients in many commercial sectors. We've also carried out a lot of digital marketing work, achieving up to a staggering 14% response rate on many of our email campaigns.

Far more important perhaps than these basic Internet tools, however, is the ground breaking development work programming far more complex ideas such as the world's only real weather based virtual balloon race, medical education systems and granular information portals.

These latter in-house projects have consumed a seven-figure budget in pursuit of disruptive technologiees and services marketable in the UK and globally. Some of the staff who work on these in-house projects are found below.
