Calvium is a leading digital agency combining expertise in research, experience design, software engineering and mobile innovation.

We are experts in designing and developing robust mobile, web apps and platforms that deliver business critical services and engaging customer experiences. By improving business processes, team productivity and customer engagement we help our clients to thrive in a mobile world. From creating app solutions that improve operational performance for Rolls-Royce to encouraging new audiences for Historic Royal Palaces and City of London – Calvium are leaders in the field of mobile innovation.

Apps already form the core of our mobile lives, even melding into the very fabric of society and the environment, e.g. through smart city control systems and monitoring devices. With the rise of new technologies such as voice recognition, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, wearables and the ‘internet of things’ the functionality and importance of apps is only increasing. Ensuring that the integration between technology and our daily lives is a positive experience motivates Calvium to create bespoke mobile services and experiences that people love to use.

In addition to our design and mobile app development services, we also support our clients by undertaking consultancy and rigorous research to inform strategic thinking and operational delivery.


Calvium builds highly collaborative and sustainable relationships with clients. This allows us to deeply understand and anticipate our clients’ needs, thus ensuring that we bring maximum value to their enterprise.

Our client base is wide – demonstrating the impact of mobile and web apps across all sectors. Whether working within the realms of regeneration, cultural heritage or engineering, for each client Calvium brings together a bespoke team whose collective experience and skills match those required for the successful delivery of the project.

Each project team has strength in the following key areas: account management, project management, UX and UI design, information architecture, technical development, QA, support and maintenance. We employ agile development methods, iterative design processes and regularly work in multidisciplinary and collaborative groups.

Digital Placemaking

Calvium are experts in digital placemaking. We create location-specific digital services, products and experiences that enhance, or radically transform, people’s relationship with natural and built environments. To do this, we operate at the intersection of software engineering, creative storytelling and collaborative design. This expertise has led Calvium to build innovative digital placemaking experiences for some of the most recognisable brands and landmarks in the UK, such as: Battersea Power Station, Tower Bridge, Historic Royal Palaces and the National Theatre.

Calvium builds business critical mobile and web processes for a wealth of prestigious clients, nationally and internationally. We work with organisations who wish to enhance their business via the introduction of mobile technologies. To do this we conduct workshops, employee interviews and onsite observations in order to deeply understand the individuals needs of a client.

Our proven ability to enhance business processes, improve productivity and contribute to High Performance Culture has led to Rolls-Royce accrediting Calvium as an approved supplier for their digital initiatives.


Calvium’s impressive background within research and development forms the solid foundation of our business. Having previously worked for Hewlett-Packard Labs, Texas Instruments and Xerox prior to launching Calvium, our directors have played key roles in groundbreaking location-based experiences, including; ‘Riot 1831’, the world’s first GPS-enabled outdoor drama and ‘Savannah’, a seminal educational game for augmented space.

More recently we have partnered on research projects with the University of Exeter, University of Brighton and the Digital Cultures Research Centre, UWE. Our research for igloo – the developers of Porth Teigr, Cardiff Bay – was a 6 month long investigation into how urban regeneration can be enhanced by the creative use of digital technologies.

The deep thinking, findings and lessons learnt from these R&D’s equips Calvium with a pool of knowledge that all our clients can benefit from.
