# About Agile Collective
Welcome aboard! Agile Collective was founded at the start of 2012 by six like-minded souls who wanted to make bigger and better websites for socially conscious clients. Right from the start our guiding principles were open source and co-operative and our preferred methodology was – as the name suggests – agile.
Since then we've more than doubled in size and sometimes describe ourselves like this:
We are a worker-owned agency that designs, builds and supports websites for purpose-driven organisations. We believe in making things better, together.
We’re a tight team of digital strategists, designers, developers and project managers based in the UK and Italy.
We work with organisations that value environmental sustainability, social responsibility, equality and human rights, and share our vision of a better world for everyone. We are a company with a conscience.
We’re agile, reliable and responsive. We love open source software, and we’re a worker co-op because we believe that’s a fairer way to do business. We take our work seriously and deliver great results, but we know how to have fun too.
