About us

Maketh is Tim Reader and Robb Green

Here's a bit about us, in case you wanted to know...

Tim Reader:
The code

Tim is the director of charity agency Long White Digital and thought up Maketh after saying "no" once too often (which he hates) to the type of people he admires the most. Now we can make websites for people like us – musicians, artists, freelancers and free spirits.

Robb Green:
The pretty

Robb has been trying hard to look edgy and angular at various digital media agencies since 2005. He’s delivered award-winning campaigns and websites for clients across the charity, membership, fashion and arts sectors, and has had work and malformed opinions shared in Creative Review, .net magazine, Digital Arts, Computer Arts and NMA, among others.

Cecilia Thirlway:
The words

Cecilia has worked in communications for over 15 years with experience across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. With an unerring sense of timing, she joined the digital industry just before the bubble burst, but liked it so much she stayed anyway. As someone who has been arranging words into pleasing combinations for most of her life, she counts herself very lucky that people are willing to pay her to do it.

Jake McMurchie:
The other code

Cambridge educated, Jake has been designing and building websites since 1998 when he found himself stranded in a bungalow in Sydney, Australia. What started as a diversionary tactic soon blossomed into a full-blown career despite the best efforts of two children, a dot com bubble burst and an alternative career as a globe-trotting musician with acclaimed quartet Get The Blessing. Jake lives in Bristol and likes to make soup.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I want to work with you but would like a bespoke design – is this possible?

    Of course! Are you a charity? If so, our sister company Long White Digital takes care of our tailored service for not-for-profits. If you’re for-profit then just give us a call at Maketh and we’ll work something out. See 'Contact Us' at the top of the page.

  • Can I buy one of your themes and code it all up myself?

    Yes you can. There are a few terms and conditions but you can do this if you like.
    Themes-only cost £849 plus VAT.

  • Why do you list prices before VAT, it’s annoying!

    Sorry, yes we’ve been there. Unfortunately, whilst some of our customers are not VAT-registered a huge number are, and we’d prefer to show our lower (real) price to them and you. Consider going VAT registered? There’s not much to be lost, and possible gains.

  • Who hosts my website?

    We currently partner up with Bluehost who host all the Maketh sites. It’s cheap and cheerful and pretty reliable. We pass on the third party cost and a small management fee. This is incorporated into the costs for the first year, and billed annually thereafter on the anniversary of your website launch.

  • Can I see some demos of your themes?

    Not interactive and clickable yet, no - sorry. But in addition to the slideshow of homepages above, you can now preview full size homepage AND content pages of all 7 themes on our Prevue site.

  • Have you got any Maketh sites live yet?

    Yes, we have a few now (and many more in production):
