Lucid Rhino Web Design

Hello! We are Lucid Rhino, a creative agency based in Northampton.

In short, we design and build WordPress websites, develop online e-commerce shops, manage hosting and web domains and help clients develop brilliant branding strategies.

We’re here for three things:


We want to deliver for our clients. We want to inspire your trust.


Our mission is to help people communicate clearly. To be Lucid.


We want to be bold. That’s why we have a Rhino in our name. We strive to create bold and colourful things, art that we can be proud of. Carpe diem, as they say.

Now more about number one.

We want to be seen as an investment, not an expense. Our aim is to never churn out an ill-considered or ill-fitting solution, even if it would make us easy money. Instead, we’ll work with clients to make sure we understand their needs so whatever we create adds genuine value to their business or cause. That’s what we aim to do, whatever it is we’re doing.

We’ve built things for charities, shops, churches and for fun. We’ve delivered projects communicating through print, social media, events, music, video, email and our speciality: websites.

Alongside our core work we provide blazing fast WordPress web hosting, 2D and stop-motion animation, tools for website SEO, security and speed optimisation and we build online e-commerce stores. See more details of our services below.

Web Design and Web Development

We’re more than just a web design agency, but this is our bread-and-butter. We’ll never churn out an ill-considered and pre-made solution, but work with clients to make sure we understand their needs so their new website really performs and provides a great return on their investment.

We can also offer to host your website and manage web domains on a monthly subscription basis. Our sites are hosted on super-fast UK based SSD with unlimited storage space. It means peace of mind for your website.

Integrating e-commerce functionality with your website’s an option too if you’re looking to sell physical products, event tickets, downloads, subscriptions, or even to simply accept donations. This can integrate with all major payment types (Visa, Mastercard etc).


Business Branding Strategy

This is one area that’s often neglected or developed in an ad-hoc fashion, but a solid visual brand strategy, including identity and messaging guidelines, can make all the difference. Good design communicates quality.

There are three very basic things every business needs to be noticed: a message, a decent business logo design and a modern website. If you have the first we can work with you to develop it into smashing branding designs. We have experience developing an extensive rebranding strategy and in developing a wide array of brand media.

Our offering includes business name, slogan and example intro copy, a logo package (including assets for social media accounts), messaging guidelines and finally a design guide detailing styles in range of formats.

In addition to LucidRhino work our copywriter works as a hired copywriter a couple of days a week. We have years of experience with most kinds of writing, from thoughtful blog posts to product descriptions, sales copy, poetry and press statements. Although we haven’t yet been asked to write a children’s book, we can but live in hope.

“Competent, creative and cutting edge all apply to Lucid Rhino’s fluency on all aspects of the web.

They have kept our websites consistently high in organic search results, up to date in function, and crisp in design. They have been webmaster for us for a long time now and we have always been very pleased with the outcome. They are fast to respond to change either by Google or technology.

The last thing I wanted was to have to worry about the website, and I never had to. Lucid Rhino were proactive and came up with creative solutions. They really do give peace of mind and keep the web presence trouble free. I would highly recommend them.”

“Having a well presented online portfolio is essential for us to attract business leads online, and they certainly delivered.

It felt like they really understood our needs right from the start and offered valuable suggestions as the project progressed.

They built us a great performing website which we’re very happy with. I’d certainly recommend Lucid Rhino.
