Customizations, Full Website Builds, Performance Optimizations
Hi I'm Giles (pronounced as if it was spelt with a J), originally from the UK, and a native English speaker, now living in northern France where I am learning to speak French - albeit but quite slowly. I have been building & developing e-commerce sites since the early 00's. This has meant gaining in-depth knowledge of, amongst other things: -- WooCommerce -- Contact Form 7 -- SEO -- Google Analytics, Tag Manager & Search Console -- Marketing -- Elementor (& Pro) -- HTML emails & HTML email templates -- MailChimp. -- WordPress Themes including Avada -- MLM When it comes to skills, what I do is make designers look good. I worry about functionality, usability and all the other bits that make people turn round to the designer and say, “that looks really great!”. Whilst I can design it’s not my passion: cutting-edge web design only works well when the site works well. Getting your site to deliver – that’s my passion! My spare time is mostly being used for DIY on the old house we have bought and I’m hoping to get back to music making at some point in the future – back in the day I spent 4 years training to be a classical musician! Oh, and I hold a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Captains license.
Because every aspect of this meeting exceeded all my expectations. Giles is a gem!

Giles is much more than a web developer. He really understands the big picture and goes above and beyond in every aspect to help make the project a success.

Giles was easy to communicate our needs with, gave great suggestions, was prompt with responses and followed through with all of the plans in a timely manner and on the schedule promised. I also appreciate the follow up meeting where he showed all of the changes that took place and explained the reasons for the issues we were experiencing.

Excellent developer. Giles aided in the development of a complex feature on my website. He was willing to speak to me for hours on the project idea and gave me further advice outside of the scope of work of the project. I highly recommend working with him

Giles exceeded all expectations as a collaborator. His professionalism and attention to detail were truly remarkable. From providing accurate timelines to being highly responsive, his communication skills were top-notch. When my previous contractor fell short, Giles stepped in and saved the day. Working with him has been an absolute pleasure, and I can confidently say that he is the best in the business. I highly recommend Giles for any project or task you may have.

Giles did a great job on my custom WP site. Multiple pieces of custom code were required to reach the functionality specified and he delivered all of them. He was patient, professional and technically competent through the entire process. I certainly would recommend Giles for any site development and will use him again when I need to extend the feature set on my site. Thanks Giles.

A WooCommerce Store for an Engineering Company
Working closely with a UK based design agency I developed the WooCommerce interface required by their client, based on pre-set design ideas. The development environment requested was Elementor Pro with just one other plugin used to provide the full functionality needed. A bespoke product finder was developed enabling customers to easily find compatible products for their specific equipment.
4 core products with 34,000 variations and 3 currencies!
Based on WooCommerce and Elementor a configurable product ecommerce site where 4 products have over 34,000 variations. Each needed individual prices in 3 currencies and each distributor can have bespoke pricing. Retail pricing can also be sets in 3 currencies. As the configuration is chosen the image is updated. Once complete the SKU, price, and, if you are registered, the buy button are shown.
Online catalogue of cast iron goods using WooCommerce and Avada
Possibly the UK's largest manufacturer of cast iron drainage products, used in both heritage buildings and modern developments, wanted an easy to access online catalogue site. Like many manufacturers the range of products and variations didn't immediately fit with WooCommerce’s standard structure. Working closely with the designers I came up with a solution that had the client's approval.
Training company specializing in first aid and safety
This specialist training company required online booking of courses. Built using Elementor, WooCommerce and Multi Event Calendar.
Bespoke kitchen and furniture manufacturer
This bespoke kitchen manufacturer required a bespoke portfolio site that reflected the exclusive nature of the products that manufacture.
Specialist heritage building conservation company
Stone Edge is a specialist heritage building preservation and restoration company. They needed a site that reflected the diversity of the work they carry out - a portfolio site that showed their true versatility. Some of the work they do is truely stunning.
Personal website for voice over artist and actor
This site was produced for a voice over artist and actor Rafe Beckley and his alter ego Piers Ryman. As a professional voice over actor with many credits to his name this site was a way of engaging with people seeking his service and providing a snapshot of his work.
