Hi, I’m Sam. I create responsive websites that are functional and beautiful.

I’m a big fan of WordPress, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP, and MySQL. My clients always get the best that the web has to offer.

Some clients call me a web designer, others call me a web developer. I think digital craftsman is a fairly accurate description.

I run a small digital creative studio, from which I design and develop websites, web apps, WordPress themes, WooCommerce themes, Magento e-commerce sites, and create digital experiences with pixels and code. Marrying clean, simple and effective design with cutting edge technology is what I enjoy.

I work as a freelance web designer and web developer for large digital agencies and I have my own clients too. I’ve been lucky enough to produce work for University of York, Disney, Pixar, HSBC, Nokia, and ASDA to name a few.

You’ll find me in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. I have a surfboard and a wetsuit in my office, I can see the sea from my window, and I have clients all over the world.
