WordPress developer

Opinion

As a WordPress designer and developer, I have an opinion on pretty much everything.

These posts are just my own thoughts and opinions on a wide range of stuff – from artwork to web design.

I’ve been involved in the creative industries since the early ’90s. From an art student at the once-amazing Oxfordshire School of Art to running a creative business for over 20 years.

It’s been an interesting ride.

Since co-founding Toast in 1997, I’ve worked with so many different types of business on such a wide range of projects that it’s impossible to list them all (or rather remember them).

I’ve worked across every type of print project, from high-level Branding campaigns to artworking Z-Cards.

I started building websites in 1998, firstly using WYSIWYG builders, then onto hand-built sites in Dreamweaver (et al).

A brief stint planning and building bespoke content management systems led me to find WordPress (if you’ve ever worked on a bespoke-build CMS you’ll know why).

When I first started to use it, people would tell me that WordPress was ‘just’ a blogging platform and not good for anything else.

How wrong they were.

Over a decade later and I am a WordPress expert, having built 100s of sites.

This section of the blog shares some of my insights and discoveries. I currently look after over 150 websites for large and small clients, so every day I deal with issues, fixes and advise on content and best practice.

If you have a website and think it should be better, get in touch – I will happily have a quick look at it for you.
