About Built by Monkey

BuiltByMonkey has been developing for the web for over 10 years in one form or another and have developed long term relationships with many of my clients, some of whom have been with me from the start. My aim has always been to deliver cutting edge web design coupled with rock solid coding. I work with different types of organisations across a range of industries including companies, charities, not-for-profits, business schools, and individuals. I launched as a full development company under the name ag1design a few years ago and now have helped clients with various website requirements throughout the world. I love what I do and this is evident in the work I produce as well as the excellent relationships I have developed with my clients.

My approach

My approach is tailored to your needs and your customers. Your objectives, your products and services, your markets and target audiences and what you want them to do or experience. These factors drive everything I do. I put a great deal of emphasis on my proven method of working which enables me to deliver consistent results of the highest quality.

I add value from the first conversation. Before I propose solutions, I talk with you to get a clear idea of your situation. My questions often bring to light aspects of the problems and opportunities you face that you have not yet considered. I question. I listen. I understand. I add value. I research, review and refine. Only then do I suggest the right solution.

My project management experience and industry knowledge and my integrated methodology have been designed to ensure the success of your projects.

You expect your website to load up quickly every time; your database system to capture every name and address and detail; your customer information and other confidential data to be secure – it all just happens, right? Well, not quite – it actually takes a highly skilled specialist working day and night to keep your online activity running like clock-work. But you don’t need to know about that. Let BuiltByMonkey take care of the the web hosting, planning, maintenance, software upgrades, data backups, vulnerability testing, security audits of your web solution while you concentrate on the business that really matters.


I offer a variety of technologies including PHP, AJAX, CSS, XHTML, jQuery, Scriptaculous. I favour open source technologies such as PHP and MySQL on Linux and Windows. I am an independent agency so if you have a particular content management system you are familiar with, I can work with it, I can recommend another product, or I can build you something from scratch. All clients have different requirements and I try to be as flexible as possible to offer a range of solutions for your organisation. I have worked with WordPress, SugarCRM, Drupal, Joomla, Typo3, CakePHP, Zend framework (ZF), OpenCart, Oscommerce, Magento Commerce, Facebook API, phpBB, Kayako to name a few.

The cost of developing a website is dependent on a variety of factors including size and technical requirements. I can provide free, no-obligation quotes on request; please get in touch if you have a project you’d like me to quote on.
