Hi! We’re purpleplanet.

We love to monkey around,
creating stellar websites and out of this
world mobile applications.

All of our customers get their own design, built from the ground up. Your homepage will be your unique presence on the internet.


We can make sure your new web presence really takes off with a whooosh!

Featured here are a few of the websites we have designed and built or built from customer-provided designs. We take great pride in giving each client the best possible solution for their specific needs.

We have developed solutions for a wide range of industries, businesses, and organisations. The list is always growing, so return soon for more examples of purpleplanet’s work.


It all starts with a single cell…

…or image, or line of code. We build using well-known tools and systems, utilised by millions of websites worldwide. Everything is explained in detail, so our customers don’t feel alienated from the process or from their shiny new website.

How we work

Pay no attention to
that man behind the curtain!

purpleplanet is owned by Matt Atherton, a self-taught web designer and developer. Matt lives in Germany, but is proud of his English roots.

The company is officially a one-man show, which utilises the skills of
highly-skilled professionals on a project basis. This means that purpleplanet can always provide the right person for every job, without the need to employ a huge staff and risk losing the personal relationship with the client.

Here’s what others have to say about purpleplanet

The service we have received from purpleplanet has been outstanding from start to finish. As a school, we now have a professional looking, easy-to-use website that meets our exact requirements. This would have not been possible without the vision and expertise provided by purpleplanet.Headteacher, Watchfield Primary School
purpleplanet was a great partner on our new corporate-branded website. The expertise and solution-solving skills helped make this an award-winning site, and exactly what I envisioned. purpleplanet’s attention to detail and speedy turn around, coupled with competitive pricing, made this project a home run!SMS, Inc.
The website is exactly what we wanted and we felt involved in the process from the start. purpleplanet have created a very welcoming site for us, which we feel reflects the nature of our school, and we have had many compliments from parents and other schools alike.

The staff at purpleplanet are professional, friendly and approachable, and they are only just a quick email away at any time. We would certainly recommend purpleplanet to others.Headteacher, Ampney Crucis School

Matt Atherton should wear a cape and logo on his chest! He created the Camp A Cappella web site so quickly, so effortlessly, so beautifully that we were done faster than I imagined possible, and I could only think of just one minor tweak which of course he updated before I could make a cup of tea.Deke Sharon, Camp A Cappella
Matt has been wonderful to work with. He is very creative, pays great attention to detail, and often provided solutions that helped move my project along. He took my initial idea for my company’s user help web site and added some lovely, skillful touches that really improved the overall user experience. He has also been very reliable in helping to tweak small issues after our initial site launch; he moves lightning-fast to repair any unforeseen thing that needs fixing.

I would request his services again in a heartbeat. I enthusiastically recommend him.Megan Moore, Compass Learning

The cooperation between our bank and purpleplanet has been excellent. We have been involved from step one and the final website was what we were expecting. The company manged to build a website of really high standards, as per our specifications, and they have answered all queries in a timely manner.

We feel the website reflects the nature of our company, it’s very easy to use and our clients can now get to the information very quickly, be it calculators, general information, or available positions within the organisation.

We are happy to continue the collaboration with purpleplanet and fully recommend them to other companies.Raiffeisen Bank, Albania
