Built on effective, trusted relationships with our clients, we unite brands and customers through creative design, intuitive user experience and innovative web technology.
Every pixel we design and line of code we write is hand-crafted from scratch. No templates or themes, all of our work is completely bespoke.
It's vital to understand your customers and what makes them tick. Only then we can ensure that everything we do positions you as the most relevant choice in a competitive market.
All good relationships are built on trust. We hope you'll see us as an extension of your team that you can rely on to deliver on time, on budget and on spec.
Having worked in web design and development for over 15 years, Chris has built a career as a web designer, developer and planner before co-founding 1Zero. During this time he has focused his expertise towards digital creativity and user experience.
Outside of work, Chris has an unhealthy devotion to Tottenham Hotspur, a dream of a single figure golf handicap and a liking for a beer, all of which have taken a back seat after the recent arrival of his baby girl!
Ally's our master of all things technical (quite literally – he has an MSc in Advanced Computing from UTS in Sydney!). With over 14 year's commercial experience and an excellent understanding of computer systems architecture, software methodologies and multiple programming languages, he's responsible for delivering our client-driven software and web development.
When the sun is shining Ally's normally out and about, trying to stay active. But this is Britain with it's grey skies, so more often than not you can find his nose in a good book, powering through a boxset on TV or working on his next computer-based brainwave.
Leanne has worked in a variety of design and development roles during her 11 years working in the digital industry. She's got a great attention to detail and prides herself on creating the very best user experience possible. Having spent a year freelancing (lots of it with 1Zero!), she joined the 1Zero team permanently in April 2018.
Outside of work, Leanne enjoys both riding and watching anything with 2 wheels - both the pedal-powered and engine-propelled versions!
Jules has over 15 years' experience of developing database driven websites using various technologies. There's very little he doesn't know about .Net, Umbraco and his more recent speciality - integrating our education projects with Captia's Unit-e platform.
Chris is our ex-US Air Force project manager who keeps the 1Zero wheels turning with military-esque efficiency. With his roots in Pennsylvania, Chris moved to the UK in 2014 and begun his career as a digital PM having obtained a Masters in Organisational Management.
When he's not barking orders to the troops, Chris enjoys his passion for nature photography.
Gemma is the link between the 1Zero team, our clients and our partners. With a great eye for detail and a relentless drive to get things done, she'll use all her experience to make sure every element of your project comes together at the right time.
Away from the office, you can usually find Gem in the kitchen doing her best impression of Mary Berry... she bakes fantastic cakes!
With 14 years' experience developing interactive media, Olly has a background in both front and back-end programming, choosing to focus now on development using the latest in front-end technology. Always up for a challenge, Olly enjoys getting to grips with new web technologies.
If you do ever see him away from a computer, he'll likely be found enjoying his guilty pleasure of watching WWE wrestling... he's still convinced it's real!
