Our recent work...

Launched by the FCRN in May 2016, Foodbytes consists of 10 informally peer-reviewed chapters providing a clear, accessible, balanced and scientifically robust overview of the many interlinked social and environmental issues related to our food system. A labour of love and technical challenges - but an amazing resource on everything you need to know about food and sustainability.

Monday 31 March 2015 saw the launch of the latest version of the FCRN website. A huge undertaking of redesign and rebuild but we are so proud to have been involved. Restructuring a library of some 3,500 articles, reports and news items. Improving the networking funtions for the 1,800 network members. Not without its trials, but the end result is a triumph. Even if we say so ourselves!

Cynthia is an amazing figurative artist who approached us to build her a new website, initially to help publicise a new exhibition but more broadly to represent her work to its best potential on the internet.

We built her a clean and clear responsive Drupal site that she can manage herself, and with a simple gallery for displaying her beautiful paintings. 


Alan is a blind adventure athlete, speaker, and truly inspirational character. A former Royal Navy Officer, he lost much of his sight in 2004. He has completed some of the world’s toughest endurance feats, holding multiple world records, including a Guinness Record for rowing the Atlantic (2008). He is currently training to swim the English Channel.

Alan approached us to build him a website, within a budget, that would profile his achievements and publicise his speaking dates. We built him a responsive Wordpress site that he can manage and update. It was a privilege to work with such a dedicated, committed individual.
