I believe that everything we do should challenge our clients to think differently about their websites. We spend the time to understand our clients' problems and ambitions so we can support their sales and marketing goals. Our team is committed to providing web solutions that directly solve challenging problems. Our core belief is that technology is the means; not the end.
Barry is a Drupal and open-source evangelist. He has worked intimately with Drupal having written numerous modules for data tracking and processing. He leads the Real Life Digital team to deliver top quality projects and ensures our customers are able to easily manage their sites. His technical specialisms include data security and scalable architectures. Barry is partial to a good barbecue, local ale and a splash of world music.
Darren is our digital designer and front end developer. He handles our small to medium size projects from start to end. Darren's background is in print design and he has a knack for translating static pixel-perfect designs in to organic, responsive websites and applications. He is known around the office for his prominent beard, his insatiable thirst for decent beer (not in work hours), his passion for obscure hip-hop and his bizarre love affair with chilli sauce.
Jules is something of a converted technophobe but her patience with technology remains pretty low. As such, she is a good advocate for ensuring our clients' websites and applications are intuitive. She has an eye for detail and makes sure we develop sites as clearly as possible for end users and site managers. When Jules isn't fighting off modern technology, she is a dance teacher, singer/songwriter, author and enjoys growing organic fruit and veg.
Our Extended Team & The Drupal Community
Our extended network of trusted people includes front and back end developers who we regularly bring in to work on specific projects depending on which expertise are required.
Our Trusted Service Provider Partners
We're also partnered with specialists in content creation, search engine optimisation (SEO) and hosting so that we can all work together to bring you the best results for your business.
We often encourage our clients to engage Web Results Direct to aid in search engine optimised written content creation and post-site launch consultancy on SEO. Web Results Direct have a proven track record of improving our clients' search ranking both organically and via paid campaigns.
We work closely with platform.sh as a hosting provider because it means that we can benefit from working with a tried and tested hosting platform whilst you get to manage your direct relationship with the hosting company directly. This means no middle-people and fewer obstacles to launch.
Something that really makes a website stand out amongst the competition is original, high-quality photography and videography. Our partnership with Névé Studios means that you'll have access to a team of highly experienced and professional visual content creators.
