Alex Crooks

Lead Developer

Alex oversees all of our front and back end builds, ensuring they maintain the high quality we expect. He’s a developer with a keen eye for design and perfection. In his spare time, he loves touring on his motorbike, gaming, and when he can, throwing himself down snow covered mountains.

Oli Northam

Lead Technical

With strong experience in IT and backend development, Oli provides the nuts and bolts for all our web applications as well as ensuring that our technologies are all up-to-date and secure. In his free time, Oli likes to create experimental web apps, listen to his expansive collection of dodgy 90’s music and occasionally play Dance Dance Revolution at the arcade (don’t ask).

Tom O'Malley

Lead Designer

Tom heads up our design output, which started with our amazing rebrand. A pixel perfectionist, illustrator and ideas guy, he’s creative to the core. He loves getting inspired by travelling, exploring and taking photographs. When not busy being a designer, Tom can be found on the water or on a board; surfing, paddleboarding or longboarding the concrete waves.

Mike Watkins


Formerly a graduate from the University of Southampton, Mike provides brilliant technical support to our clients. He’s a meticulous coder who’s all about the details. When he isn't busy coding, Mike enjoys gaming, bee keeping and building Robots to take over the world.

Matt Treagus


A Computer Systems and Networks graduate from Plymouth University, our lastest recruit, Matt loves anything hands on. When he’s not here getting stuck into projects, Matt loves gaming, creating games, archery and building complex models to keep himself entertained.


Office Robot

Sid heads up our lab and is the Si digital resident robot. His current role is to pick up balls under instruction from visitors across the world. When not playing games, Sid likes to relax with a can of WD-40.
