Swimming Hippo

What kind of name is that?

We are often asked about our name "Swimming Hippo" and how it came about; well, when we first started out in 2001, programmers ruled the web design & development world, not designers or marketers.

We wanted to do things differently and the first strap line we used, “Surprisingly elegant solutions”, suited this era and accurately represented our ethos. The websites we produced were elegant, well designed and functional – a rare combination in 2001.

Hippos are “surprisingly elegant” when underwater, so came the name, Swimming Hippo.

Today, good design is abundantly available online, but we still believe Swimming Hippo represents something beyond just good design.

Our ability to listen and understand a company’s business requirements, then interpret these into beautiful website designs that will achieve real results is just one of the core strengths we offer. Our studio is a template free zone, every design is carefully crafted to fit your unique requirements.

This approach is applied to everything we do, from email marketing to social media and broader digital campaigns. We take each individual project and start with the answer to really understand what is required, then carefully select the correct approach to achieve your goals.
