About us.

“2 years ago we set out to create our own app, and even with decades of design and development experience between us, we struggled to find a single agency that had time to hear about our idea - let alone one willing to help us start with a budget under £100,000!

The more we talked to our community, all trying to start their own apps too, we realised it wasn’t just a problem for us. The majority of agencies just wanted to take on the big projects, the big companies, and the apps with enormous budgets.

That seemed incredibly unfair. Like building an app or a website was somehow a luxury that only the elite could afford. So we decided to change that then and there.

Na:gne Studio was born to help anyone create an app or website. We changed the normal way things are done by creating Proof-Of-Concept design packages to help anyone go for funding, agile sprint-by-sprint payment plans to allow pay-as-you-go options for those on tight budgets, and focused on building partnerships with our community rather than chasing the biggest sales - and it has been an incredible success.”

Why Na:gne Studio?

Software experts

We're the software experts. Our entire team has spent their careers delivering software for clients and customers all over the world, growing new digital platforms and building sustainable products.

Decades of experience

Whether you are looking for experience in startups and the modern SaaS world, or experience in global technology and financial enterprises, you've found the right team to deliver your product.

Trusted partner

We don't focus on one-off projects and churning through as many apps as possible, we try to partner with all of our customers for the long term, focusing on your long term success and helping you scale.

Value

We aim to bring better value than our competitors to all of our customers. Based in Scotland (make of that what you will...) we aim to ensure your money gets you value in return - and we don't subscribe to the 60% mark-ups that the big players do!

Transparency

Transparency is the key to a good working relationship with all of our customers. Transparency about costs, viability of ideas, timelines and more. Even before you're a customer we provide complete breakdowns of costs, estimates, tasks, and assumptions.

Honesty

From day one we commit to being honest with everyone. That includes leads who we think would be better off going with an off-the-shelf solution, or a competitor. We are committed to being honest about what is best for you - and what we can deliver uniquely.

Flexibility

Flexibility enables founders and business to create products at their own rate. We provide flexibility in our plans, packages, platforms, pricing and more. The only thing we aren't flexible on is the timelines we commit to for your services.

Care

We care about your business, your idea, your success - you. We learn about your idea and product and make sure that what we are delivering is what you need, what will help your product get to the next stage, and what will help you succeed.

Yolo

You only live once, and we aren't here to work with teams and businesses we don't get along with. We work with people that we enjoy partnering with, we have good banter, great discussions, help you network, and celebrate each others success.

What you need to know.

How much will it cost to design and develop my app or website?

Everyone has different needs to bring their ideas to life. We can get you started on your development journey with agile sprint-by-sprint costs, meaning you can pay for 2 weeks of work by a team at a time, building what you need first as you go. The cost of a development team for one sprint starts at £3,500 and goes up depending on the expertise you need.

A typical completed MVP (minimum viable product) for an app costs around £17,800, and complex and detailed apps can range up to £50,000+.
If you don't have funding yet we can help with that too, with Proof Of Concept design packages starting from £3,350.

For more information try our pricing calculator here.

How long does it take to build my app or website?

Smaller custom apps or websites can take 1-2 months, but the majority of our projects are completed in a 2-3 month time range.

If it is an incredibly large product it can take beyond 3 months but we always try to develop your idea in a way that will get you a workable product as soon as possible. This means you can launch something into the market for testing and then develop further features from feedback and analysis.

What size and type of companies do you work with?

We specialise in working with entrepreneurs and founders with 0 team members, as well as SMBs with 10-50 employees. However size is never an obstacle for us, if you are a member in a larger business, and you need help bring a product idea to life, we are happy to help.

That is our core purpose at the end of the day, to help anyone create their product no matter resources, knowledge, team size or anything else.

Where is your team located?

Our core team is located in Edinburgh Scotland, our HQ office. The address is 37a Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2EL, Scotland UK.

We also have an incredible talent pool across the globe that work on all of our projects and helps us scale and deliver efficiently. Our team spans from the UK to Ukraine to New Zealand and beyond 👽.

What’s a typical client and agency relationship like?

We work closely with all of our customers. You'll get a dedicated project manager, weekly calls during delivery, a dedicated slack channel for informal communications, a dedicated ClickUp project management board so you can see where delivery is at any stage and more.

In general we want you to feel like part of the team, and be able to ask questions or get in touch with us when ever you need. Our entire team is always available to talk at any stage of a project. We definitely won't pass you from one team to the next after signing or handing off delivery.

Most importantly the relationship is a friendly one, with good talks, great banter, an up beat team, and a willingness to help you succeed however we can - whether that is development and design, or introducing you to our networks.

Can you work with my existing development team?

Yes. We often work as an extension to help teams scale as needed. Whether that be backing up your team until you can hire your own developers and then handing over the project, or simply delivering ad hoc feature ideas as you need so your existing team can keep on track with their own deliverables. 

We can even help with specialist engineers for particular languages that you don't have internally, or don't have a need to hire full time.

Can you work with my existing app or website?

Yes. We often work with existing apps and websites either taking over development to speed up progress, or updating and converting them to modern languages so developing them is easier in the future.

We're happy to review existing products and give you technical advice and accurate quotes on developing them moving forward.
