Our Cyber Heritage
Andrew and Rufus are both highly skilled polymaths holding numerous certifications covering the gamut of IT disciplines.
In the mid-nineties, when use of the World Wide Web first started to spread, they were there.
They began working together in 2001 when they were responsible for different aspects of the creation and support of one of the largest websites on earth, and drawing inspiration from each other, found their shared enthusiasm and dedication created a dynamic and efficient environment for creative work. Since then, they’ve worked on numerous projects together providing IT support and security, and have also collaborated on photography and design projects throughout Europe.
Combining their extraordinary expertise and experience as computer engineers with artistic and creative flair for contemporary design, they have successfully consulted and delivered solutions for multi-national businesses including global financial institutions, universities, government bodies, defence, and myriad small businesses in just about every field of endeavour.
Over the last 25 years, working across the globe, they have become highly experienced in IT infrastructure, hardware, electronics, operating systems, applications, search engines, IT security, knowledge management, content management, electronic library systems, photography, audio & video production, graphic design & design for print, branding & marketing, social media, technical authoring, designing and delivering IT training; however, they are, above all, specialists in website creation & management and content production.
