Aaron Whiffin, Webbed Feet UK

Aaron Whiffin

Business Development Director

Aaron started making commercial websites back in 1997 so that he could support himself through his degree in Mathematics & Computing at The University of Bath.

In 2001, after his graduation with a BSc (Hons), Aaron setup Webbed Feet UK with the main aim of helping small businesses 'get their feet for the web', but was making more advanced bespoke eCommerce websites within just a couple of months.

In 2010 Webbed Feet UK had expanded enough for Aaron to stop developing websites, and start focusing on his current role as Business Development Director.

In his spare time, Aaron enjoys walking his dog Flipper with his wife Monika and son Maximus, training in the gym and dojo, and pursuing extreme sports such as downhill mountain biking.

Alex Hopson, Webbed Feet UK

Alex Hopson

Technical Systems Director

Alex made his first website back in 1997 when the web was still in its infancy. Throughout his time studying at university he worked on the website for Trade Aid, a local charity, and shortly after completing his course he joined Aaron.

Since his first work on the web Alex has always been keen to keep up to date with the latest trends and capabilities of web browsers, trying to make sure that every site he works on makes the web more beautiful and easy to use. He created the CMS system Webbed Feet UK uses and continues to iterate it and tailor it to each client.

Alex caught the travel bug while spending his gap year teaching in Tanzania, and since then has travelled to Timbuktu, cycled across the Andes and trekked in Ethiopia to mention just a few places. When relaxing in this country he enjoys making things, most recently an automated photo booth for Aaron’s wedding or photography out and about in the local surroundings.

Andy Payne, Webbed Feet UK

Andy Payne

Web Developer

Having begun working for Webbed Feet UK in 2007, Andy is the longest serving worker for the company and has seen it develop into the thriving business it is today.

Specialising in PHP development, he also has extensive knowledge of HTML, CSS, SQL and client side scripting.

Andy has experience working on small-scale web sites for local businesses, as well as large classifieds web sites with millions of page impressions per month, and international audiences.

In his spare time Andy regularly reads, plays golf (albeit badly) and also keeps fit by cycling and running.

Dan Powell, Webbed Feet UK

Dan Powell

Graphic & Web Designer

Dan graduated from the Arts University College Bournemouth in 2010 with a first-class honours BA in Digital Media Production. From there he initially setup his own small digital design agency and now works for Webbed Feet UK.

Dan is experienced in many different areas of design; print, user-interfaces, new media and photography. Dan designs the majority of our websites and works closely with clients to guide them through the development process. He also makes a banging cup of tea.

Having always had a passion for technology and design, Dan loves to combine the two whenever possible. Much of his time is spent behind some kind of screen, painting, drawing or tinkering with newfangled gadgetry. Ideally all at once.

Stuart Goodman, Webbed Feet UK
