Hi, I’m Aidan Ashby.
WordPress web hosting to businesses, charities, churches and individuals.
I’m a web designer and developer based in Montpelier, Bristol, UK. I mainly work with Adobe XD, WordPress and Divi but branch out into graphic design, copywriting, animation and other disciplines.
I don’t just churn out a website then chip with the cash. I know that a much better long-term strategy is to concern myself with my client’s success, so I aim to work with clients to achieve their goals with a positive, approachable attitude.
I don’t just make websites, I aim to return more value to my clients than I charge for my work. Then I offer to keep things running well with supported web hosting.
I accept pancakes as payment.*
I’m here for three things:
I want to deliver for my clients. I want to inspire your trust.
My mission is to help people communicate clearly. To be Lucid.
I want to be bold. That's why the business has a Rhinoin its name. I strive to create bold and colourful things, art that I can be proud of.
I want to be seen as an investment, not an expense. My aim is to never churn out an ill-considered or ill-fitting solution, even if it would make easy money. Instead, I’ll work with clients to make sure I understand their needs so whatever I create adds genuine value to their business or cause. That’s what I aim to do, whatever it is I’m doing.
I’m based in Montpelier, part of Ashley borough that’s close to St Pauls, Cabot, Cotham, Redland and Bishopston in Bristol, but I also cover Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and South Wales. I have done work for clients in Birmingham, Coventry, London, Norwich, Northampton and Sheffield.
I might be biased, but take it from my clients:
“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.”

“Excellent service from Aidan at Lucid Rhino – Always a bit nervous when using new agencies but overall an enjoyable experience with a quality end product. I went for branding, web build and business cards. Initial brain-storming sessions really helped cement the vision and, from there, work was carried out on time and within budget. Really like the idea that I can make small edits to the site without the monthly fees of Wix and the like. Great option for small business. Highly recommended!”

“Working with Aidan was great! Aidan kept me informed along the way, and we had a fair few conversations and online meetings to discuss ideas for the website layout and different functions etc.. before he began building it. He was professional, trustworthy, and has delivered a great end product. Really happy with the website and the price was reasonable too. You can really tell he knows what he’s doing, and was able to add some unique features which gives a cool affect to the website.”

“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.”
