Staple is the online home of Gwilym Grffith-Jones, it is currently operating as a small concept to realisation ui/ux/concept/design/code outfit. Lately most of my work has been in Laravel, Python and Wordpress/PHP. I also do a a bit of design and product development with the sewing machine harking back to my days with Cactus Outdoor.
I built my first website with Paul Kennett in 1992. Well he built it while I watched and marvelled. For some reason, ever since, I wanted to code.
Since then through solving the real world web problems of businesses I've helped build, and launching pie-in-the-sky start-ups, I've metamorphosed into enough of a coder and designer to realise I really enjoy the creative challenges and freedoms the internet allows.
From 2014 - 2019 I worked for a start up in Wanaka, kin2kin. Principally designing user interface and running the Sketch App design system I also built the browser facing resources in Jekyll and React JS.
In 2020, the Covid era, I have been working for some great supportive clients, and enjoying family life.
