Who we are

Building a better online world

Cogapp is a digital agency. We exist to build a better online world: better for the people who use our work and better for our clients. Combining intuitive user experience, elegant design, and thoughtful application of technology, we transform complexity into understanding.

We believe access to art and culture enriches lives and has the power to inform our future. We work with leading museums, galleries, libraries, and archives to help them shine more brightly online.

Founded in 1985, we have been innovating in the cultural sector for more than thirty years. We work nationally and internationally from an office in Brighton and an outpost in New York.

Cogapp is an independent business owned by its directors. We foster a healthy, supportive working environment where everyone can learn, grow and do their best work. We play a useful part in our community and help to enable the urgent changes needed to ensure a sustainable future.
