Our History

Cold Banana was born out of a desire to help organisations around the world get the most out of their digital presence. Founded in 2015 by Luke Fribbens in Bournemouth, Cold Banana has grown to become an industry leading Umbraco Gold Partner with offices in both the UK and Dubai.


The company prides itself on delivering high quality solutions built on .NET technologies and content management systems (CMS) such as Umbraco. The team is made up of experienced architects, developers and designers who have worked on projects for some of the world’s biggest brands. Their combined expertise allows them to create cutting-edge solutions tailored specifically to the needs of their clients.


In addition to their core services, Cold Banana also offers a wide range of bespoke services such as technical consultancy, user experience design, content migration and more. They are dedicated to helping clients take full advantage of all the possibilities the web has to offer, from building custom websites and apps through to optimizing existing ones for better performance.


In addition to creating effective digital solutions for their clients, Cold Banana is also committed to making a difference in its community. The company encourages its staff members to get involved with local charities and volunteer initiatives that make a positive impact on society.  The commitment also extends beyond build websites; Cold Banana recently ran a coding marathon for charity in Bournemouth which raised funds for local organisations in need.


At Cold Banana, it’s not just about developing great products – it’s about making sure they are built with people in mind too. That’s why this Umbraco Gold Partner continues to provide clients with superior service and support year after year; by combining advanced web technologies with caring customer service they are able to consistently provide outstanding results that help businesses succeed online.

Our Values

At Cold Banana, we strongly believe in maintaining Togetherness and Partnerships both internally and externally. We strive to create Opportunities for all which ultimately helps us build upon our Positivity and drives the success of the company. Togetherness allows us to communicate better, maintain strong relationships and overall ensure everyone is on the same page.


Our partnerships with vendors, customers and investors are of utmost importance as they help propel our business forward. We don't shy away from Opportunities and prioritize them as we understand that these bring in immense value. Above all, we embrace Positivity at every step as a positive attitude helps us look at any situation from a different angle and get creative solutions quickly.
