Alacrify is 25 (and some) – Happy Birthday To Us!


25th January 2024

The last couple of years have been so hectic we forgot to celebrate our 25th Birthday in 2022. With COVID being just before that the years seems to have disappeared. However, we’re so happy to be able to celebrate our 25th year as a business and also to now celebrate that we’re heading into our 27th year as a business. All of this wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for our amazing client base throughout those years.

Alacrify has grown into something amazing since it was founded twenty-seven years ago. From seed-like beginnings at Jon’s kitchen table to coming of age in the tree-height studio space in the heart of Dorchester that we now call home, we started designing and building bespoke websites in 1997, and haven’t looked back. These days our creative process involves beautiful modern design, innovative technological solutions, intelligent business consultancy, and expert social media marketing. Our story is one of great work, great intention, great staff, and great clients.

Having had the privilege of working with hundreds of people over the years, we’ve absorbed this wealth of experience, and draw on it daily, making connections and sharing insights. As a small team of three (Jon, James and Lesley) we’re in demand, so we work on projects that we care about, and that we think can be most transformative to the people who come to us. We’re passionate about social responsibility and community, and we thrive on ideas and creativity.

Having also grown in the last couple of years with the Alacrify Foundation CIC also known as Help and Kindness. The Alacrify Foundation has developed from over 25 years of charitable and voluntary work by Alacrify Ltd and its Directors. It exists to support the civil society networks within Dorset; including charities, voluntary groups, support businesses and the public sector, to improve service access and strengthen the resilience of these service providers.


At present we are working on our #HelpAndKindness project for Dorset. You can read all about it on our project website here:

We are really excited to see what 2024 brings and the future beyond. We’d like to say a massive thanks to our clients for your support and trust and we look forward to welcoming new clients throughout the years.

Now to give ourselves a pat on the back and wish ourselves a Happy Birthday. Did someone say cake?
