We keep him in a darkened room with only a computer, phone and some headphones which he listens to obscure podcasts with. Mike is our resident software engineer/designer, creating all kinds of wonderful web-based apps for our clients. Online booking systems, auto-quoting systems, invoicing software or writing code to help with our design work, he’s very analytical and binary in his thought process. In his spare time, he plays football in a local league, enjoys climbing and loves his Apple products & technology ‘stuff’. He’s been building and running his own website ‘on the side’ since he was 11. He has even taken to riding his girlfriends horse now and again.
William is our in-house ‘creative’. His attention to detail and flare for graphic design are what his clients love about him. He’s patient and remains calm under pressure which is really handy in a busy studio. When he’s in-the-zone designing something his hands glide across the keyboard and mouse like its some sort of musical instrument. He’s recently completed the Lyke Wake Walk with his friends and is looking for his next challenge. Although he has over 3,000 subway points he’s obsessive about keeping fit and spends an hour a day in the gym. He’s into building his Instagram presence with technology photos and looking for the next great idea.
That would be me, I started out in the mapping business 21+ years ago after working as a software engineer in the medical and oil/gas industry. I oversee everything that goes on here, assisting Mike & Will (my sons). I’m interested in modern design, mountain biking, golf, flying paramotors and anything business related. I’m a hands-on designer and have an astute understanding for what clients need without much direction. I'm a bit OCD when it comes to map design and much to Mike and Will's disappointment I am always pointing out the smallest of issues. I have another 9 year old son who hasn't yet entered the business but there's plenty of time yet.
