Company

Our motto: Nobody wins unless everybody wins

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

How we work.

Some companies focus on the bottom line.

Our mission is to change the way the world builds and uses the internet. If we can start one ripple in the pond, we can create waves of change.

We believe that design is a powerful tool for change and that everyone should have access to it. Our mission is to change the way the world builds and uses the internet. If we can start one ripple in the pond, we can create waves of change.

We stand for development that respects the planet and serves people — all people. The pomp and pageantry of tech novelties take a back seat to reliable, accessible solutions that deliver results. Our commitment to accessibility is unwavering. When faced with a decision, our choice will always lean towards creating solutions that are accessible to all. This isn't just good practice; it's our moral compass guiding the way we design and develop.

About Us

Raised on Punk Rock and the Internet.

I'm Drew Minns, the founder of Really Good Work Inc. Working professionally as a creative since 2002, I've worked for Universal Music, Huge Inc, and others before starting my own company. I've been a designer, developer, manager, director and everything in between.

Once upon a time, if you worked online, you had to declare your allegiance to either design or development. I was simply friends with both, and taking all the heat for it. The user experience is make or break, and being able to understand both sides of the coin has allowed me to create some really cool stuff.

Throughout my career, I've always been the one to call out experiences that exclude others while prioritizing "cool". I was told I was too dogmatic because I would fight for accessibility. But, good design is something that works for everyone, so our job isn't done until everyone is included.

Life is cooler when you're nice and include everyone instead. I look forward to working on something awesome with you.

Accessibility is an afterthought. We want to change that.

The 2023 WebAIM Million Report has found that across one million home pages tested, 49,991,225 distinct accessibility errors were detected—an average of 50.0 errors per page.

96.1% of all errors detected fall into these six categories; Addressing just these types of issues, which take seconds, would significantly improve accessibility across the web.

Providing an inclusive experience to all allows more opportunities for users to access content regardless of ability, device type, connection speed and location.

Principles

We don't participate in or condone the 'hustle'.

We work hard to make the thing we love, our career. Our skills and passions play a part in leading meaningful lives outside of a laptop. A healthy work-life text-pretty is essential for creativity, and we're committed to deliver the best overall experience for ourselves and our clients. Our partnerships are built on mutual respect, trust and boundaries. We're making internet things, not saving lives so most emails can wait until tomorrow. In the pursuit of calm and happiness allowing us to do our best work, we don't respond to emails after 4:30pm – that's our dedicated family time.

Running a business is hard so let's help each other out.

Like you, we're entrepreneurs who understand how hard this business thing is and want to work together so we're both happy. We value honesty and transparency throughout a project and will never over-promise what we can't deliver within your budget. While we're happy to provide references and work examples, we don't do unpaid assessments or spec work. Our prices reflect our 20+ years of experience and expertise with Fortune 500 companies. We're always down to see if we can make something work for everyone, but we do have bills to pay.

We don't perform, we partner.

We don’t do tests or assignments. Not only are they out of fashion in the industry, but we believe that our vast work and experience speaks for itself. We don't work with just anyone. Not everyone needs a new website, so after you contact us, we will follow up with a pitch of how we think we can help. Besides, are you looking for the same thing as everyone else or are you looking for something new?

Think we would be great collaborators?

We'd love to hear from you
