About Us

We are not your average web agency!

Of course we can transform your website and enhance your online presence. But it’s our core values, personal and human approach that sets us apart from other agencies.

Our core values

Local First

We are proud of our roots in Hastings, East Sussex. We want to give back to the local economy our expertise and experiences and improve the businesses and organisations around us.


At Gold Pebble, we strive to create a community of forward-thinking individuals pushing new boundaries. We look to inspire and innovate our community whether that is our local community or the businesses we work with.

Relationship Building

We love building relationships! Our core strengths are being open and honest; we believe these are key strengths in creating a long-lasting relationship.


We treat everyone with fairness and respect, from employees to third parties to our clients. Our integrity is at the heart of what we do.


We are a family first agency! Our founders Paul Goldsmith and Dean Hodges created Gold Pebble so they can have the flexibility to be around their kids and we encourage our colleagues to do the same.


Our work comes from the heart and we put a lot of love and attention to each and every project. We are humans and we expect nothing less from those that we work with.

Meet the team

Gold Pebble was founded by the creative mind of Dean Hodges, D&AD (Design & Art Direction) award-winning designer, and the analytical brain from Paul Goldsmith (over 20 years in technology).

What people are saying about us

Don’t just take our word for it, read our reviews.

“The Gold Pebble team did a great job at redesigning our website. They’ve made content management completely hassle-free. Plus, their customer service has been really efficient and supportive.”
Comms secretary at Oxford
“We chose Gold Pebble as unlike many others they took the time to understand what we were looking for and how to work together to achieve it. The relationship is collaborative and flexible to realise a fantastic site. The team really went above and beyond working not only with us but with our 3rd party integrated company. I cannot recommend the team highly enough!”
