Our first website, stow-on-the-web.com, went online in 1994. By 1998 we were living in the south of France and working on the website of the Préfecture de l’Aude – a national government office in Carcassonne. We went on to work with the Polynesian High Commission. Since then we have helped numerous businesses in the tourism and wine sectors and elsewhere to develop their web presence. See our “clients” page for more information.
With our two permanent staff and network of freelancers we have expertise in a variety of areas: design (web and paper), editing, translation, programming, systems analysis, project management, social media, and SEO. We work internationally so our business depends on the internet to a considerable extent.
In addition, our network of freelancers allows us to take on a large range of projects and react quickly to clients’ needs.
We were both born in Yorkshire in the north of England but now live near to the Mediterranean in France, in an area which still has a genuine rural community – making wine is an important activity here. We became French citizens in 2008.

Steve has been running Archetype since its foundation in 1992. He took a degree in archaeology at the University of Cambridge, graduating in 1976. His role in publishing excavation reports led him into editing and typesetting and thus to the web. His skills lie in design, project management, and in his technical knowledge of web site construction. He says: “With the arrival of social media a whole new segment of the population is starting to participate in the construction of the internet. We communicate more, and with new tools. My aim is to create websites adapted to this constantly changing world.”
