About Code and Create

We describe ourselves as a small web development agency, located in Warrington and with another office in Liverpool. We quietly go about making unique digital products. Between us, our 'senior' team have over 20 years combined experience in web development and design.

Web Development. Web Design. Mobile Applications. E-Commerce.

Our Team

Carl Gamble
Development Director
CG makes the "Code" out of Code and Create. A keen advocate for all things Microsoft and a die hard fan of AngularJS (It will return one day), CG heads up the custom web / software builds. CG can be found involved in most of the home grown products and playing pretend manager with the rest of the team. A genuine nerd coupled with being the 'chatty' one in the office means anybody interacting needs to be careful not to found themselves in a 3 hour "hi" conversation.

John Coady
Design Director
JC makes the "Create" out of Code and Create. A genuine interest in all things design combined with keeping up with the latest trends keeps him at the top of his talents. Not to become too comfortable with his remit, JC is also currently undertaking his 2nd degree, this time in Computer Science, to expand his skill set into the development side of the business too. Outside of the office JC can be found with his family, rolling around floors, playing builder / DIY handyman or in paddling in cold water.

Adam Tilston
Head of Marketing
AT came to C&C many moons ago (2018), chatting about a web project. After going AWOL for 12 months, he popped back up in 2019 looking very different (a freelancer rather than a perm). After a collaborative piece of work, he impressed us that much that we offered him a role. And here he is, our Head of Marketing. AT is usually the writer of words, the thinker upper of strategies, relationship handler and champion of clients getting more from digital. He’s also the oldest in the office. Which we remind him. Daily.

Mark Holland
Senior Web Developer
MH is the teams source of all knowledge. C&C has a saying "what MH doesn't know isn't worth knowing". Sprinkles of MH's code can be found in almost all C&C projects adding ninja level js/css to projects to make them that next level. To prevent boredom out of the office MH decided to undertake a PhD. Acting as a shining beacon of hope to the rest of the team, we all aspire to one day be half the dev he is today.

Mike Carney
Mid-Weight Designer
MC joined the C&C team in August 2020, smack bang in the middle of a pandemic. As the resident designer, he's the man who leads on creative for our digital projects. As an aficionado of all things design, be it UI or print, he loves nothing more than jamming his headphones on and wiring into a new project!⁠ Outside of the office, MC is an avid gamer and movie buff, enjoys crippling himself with spicy food and increasing his collection of beanies.

Our Skills

"What's your tech stack then"?

It's a question that pops up now and again. And because we're a specialist web development studio, we love to provide a thorough answer. From the front end capabilities, anything involving bespoke WordPress builds, clean web frameworks using React, and not forgetting Gatsby with WP are where we excel.

Backend, we’re dab hands at .Net Core, C# and SQL Server (with some Drupal thrown in). Webapp wise, throw your Javascript, React and Vue challenges this way. E-commerce wise, Shopify, WooCommerce and Stripe integration. Skills test, passed (hopefully).

The Office

What would you expect to find in a web development studio? Quite a lot. We equip and surround ourselves with home comforts and professional tools, from music provided by Spotify delivered via Alexa ("play some banging tunes please") to multi-monitor workstations with comfy gaming chairs. In Liverpool, we can see Wales from our desks, a fine sight on a cold morning. Between the machines we own, there's a query about which one gets used the most, with the Nespresso the usual answer.

How much do you charge for Web Development?

Pass the string, and we'll check how long it is. In all honesty, we'd love for this to be a straightforward answer. It all depends on a few details, and one is understanding what you're looking to achieve. But, We've tried to answer this and more on our FAQ's page.
