Founder of GIGER MEDIA and generally the first point of contact for new clients. Has been involved in vector based illustration for years and website design back when 14.4kb was the fastest speed around and Compuserve were king.
An accomplished chef (and baker) he gets just as excited as a client when designs and concepts are approved, and shares all their gusto when a project goes live.
Likes: James Bond, Roy Lichtenstein, Bombay Sapphire, Corel X6, Vans, Dreamweaver, Win7 64bit, Judge Dredd, Star Wars, Transformers, Alien etc...
Dislikes: Comic Sans MS, cheap cutlery, rom-com movies, the Jonathan Ross Show, excessive packaging, iPhone love.
Roseline (or Ro as in to row a boat, not Roz or Rue) studied Graphic Design and has developed a passion for helping clients to create and build their brand image.
A good organiser and a talented asset to the team, preferring vector based design as opposed to working in bitmaps. Ro is charged with producing initial concept layouts and designs, and helping to get all our projects through to completion.
Likes: Scuba diving, travelling, cheese, outdoor activities, Assassins Creed, The Walking Dead.
Dislikes: Celery, Comic Sans MS, Made in Chelsea, incorrect use of simple grammar, blue cheese.
Raw food-fuelled dynamo with an eye for colour. Ben studied illustration and animation at the University of Derby with a design background spanning website development, artworking and video editing.
Ben is also an accomplished image editor and coder and can be found editing, hacking and tweaking raw code to create WP based websites to suit our design.
Likes: Raw food, Nakd bars, coffee, my guitar, typography, Back To The Future II, Adobe Illustrator, Dreamweaver, T-shirts.
Dislikes: Comic Sans MS, aniseed, over-used Photoshop filters, unnecessary drop shadows, iPhone 3GS, WordArt.
Website development purist and problem-solver, shuns all mod-cons for the cold comfort of a simple text editor. The clever brain behind some of our new database driven projects. Every project is lovingly carved from sustainable grown blocks of code.
Stewart is often found utterly entranced by the computer screen and muttering in languages few can speak, the only cure for which is for someone to mention tea.
Likes: Wargaming, Digging for Victory, Real Ale, online gaming, Sudoku, Comic Sans.
Dislikes: Fancy web-editor tools, Reality/Talent TV, the limited number of hours in the day
Whilst we provide creative services that result in the production of websites, graphics, print, or photography, we made a conscious decision years ago to complete the service we offer our clients.
We have never understood the premiss of designing and then building a website for a client.. and then sending them off somewhere else to have it hosted, or using a mass-shared system with 1,000's of other unknown websites on the same server. So, back in June 2000 we made the decision to invest in our own website hosting and email servers specifically for our clients needs - we call it 'Client Only Hosting'.
For print and output we have partnered with print companies that can provide a wide range of stocks and quality finishing services.
For photography where finished or mounted display or presentation prints are required, we use some of the UK's finest photographic print labs for hand-finished output, mounting, framing and display options.
We provide a professional domain name management service and can search, register, and manage all your domains names for you. GIGER MEDIA are full members of Nominet UK and are a CentralNic Accredited Registrar, operating our own dns servers.
...and unlike many domain re sellers we register YOUR names to YOU or YOUR business, not ours.
Let's make this clear first off - we are not re-sellers - we have our own dedicated 'client only' website hosting and email servers based here in the UK, not abroad (we do like to wave the flag when we can) allowing us to provide a managed, safe, and secure environment for your website.
With a 99% guaranteed uptime and unlimited bandwidth, our hosting service is designed specifically with our clients in mind.
We do our bit. Yes, we do have a green and ethical policy, and no not just because it's trendy - we've done it for ages and to be honest it makes good business sense. We try to consider everything before making a decision, from our choice of business bank to the paper we use in the office, the tea and coffee we drink, even down to what and how we print certain items for some of our clients.
We actively encourage all our clients to settle their accounts by BACS or to use our secure GIGER FastPay system as this is not only easier for all concerned, it saves on unnecessary postage, envelopes, traffic and therefore fuel.
Even our black GIGER MEDIA branded pens and pencils are green (gedit.??). They are made from recycled plastic CD cases. What do you mean you haven't got one of these..? Every client should have these on their desk so next time we meet, just ask.
