Dec Kelly

BA (Hons) Graphic Art & Art History
  • Cheese
  • Pizza
  • Drums

Experienced in all aspects of print, web and digital design , page layout, image manipulation, contemporary printing processes and weirdly, football trivia. Able to produce the most stunning designs from the simplest or most complex of briefs, his ability to name the all the Arsenal FA Cup winning teams since 1930 beggars belief.

Andy Ratcliffe

BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Statistics
  • Football
  • Devices
  • Guitar

An exceptional developer and programmer, only truly at home when he’s immersed in the most complex of online programming challenges. Andy cites his main influences as Isaac Newton and Archimedes, mainly because these other two geniuses were also long standing season ticket holders at Arsenal.

John Briody

BSc (Hons) Computing & Information Systems
  • Travel
  • Coffee
  • Photography

John (aka the Ginger Snapper) returned to the wonderful world of software development after a 10 year stint in education (but he’s all better now). He specialises in C# MVC websites and .NET forms sites but can (and has) turned his hand to all sorts of web development tasks, both back-end and front-end. Life-long Liverpool supporter, coffee lover, and keen photographer, John values his scouse roots and the fact that he is often assumed to be a Scotsman.

Elliott Groves

BSc (Hons) Business Information Technology
  • M20
  • Lion
  • Controller

With a wide range of development / CSS knowledge and skills Elliott is always looking for new and exciting ways to solve problems. He is always looking for new and exciting motorways too, although it'd have to be one hell of a drive to beat his beloved M20. When not spending most of his spare time speeding up and down the nation's highways, Elliott can be found at the 'New Den' watching Millwall. Millwall begins with the letter M, so does motorway, it’s not a coincidence.

Toni Matev

BSc (Hons) Computer Science
  • M20
  • Lion
  • Controller

Toni is from Macedonia (spookily also starting with the letter M), which is a landlocked Balkan nation of mountains, lakes and ancient towns with Ottoman and European architecture. The capital, Skopje, is known for its sprawling Old Bazaar quarter and historic buildings turned museums, including the National Gallery of Macedonia, housed in a 15th-century Turkish bath complex. The southern city Ohrid, on a lake of the same name, has a medieval townscape and hilltop castle.

Design For Print

Web Design

Creativity & Expertise

Web designers since the early days, we've seen it all come and go, we evolve with the technology, it fires us up and the results are seen by millions of people across the globe each and every day.

Your web site is often the first introduction your business makes with a potential customer. It needs to grab their attention and pull their mouse away from the back button within a few seconds at the most.

How will they find you? What will keep them interested long enough for you to have a chance to get your message across? How will they contact you? How will they find how to contact you? Websites are much more than simple pages of information, they have to be eye-catching, fast loading, correctly written so they can be read by search engines, they have to say the right things to the search engines, they have to be easy to use and finally look good so they capture your visitors' interest.

It's not as easy as you might think. We've been doing it for a long time, and as end-to-end providers we are mindful of the technological as well as the creative issues associated with web sites and their cousins mobile apps.

A simple Wordpress-based soultion, an e-commerce site, a complex application integrating with web services from third-parties, small, medium or large, we should be on your list when it comes to discussing your next project.
