Chris McWhinnie

Build team lead

Chris joined Creatomatic right from the very beginning in 2012, as a former student in one of Kit's classes. In this time, he’s taken everything our clients and the ever-changing industry has thrown at him in his stride.

Chris has built up a decade of experience in the industry and now specialises in the build of fast, responsive websites. He leads Creatomatic's build and development studio, overseeing website builds and internal platform development.

Paul Gardner

Design team lead

A brilliantly gifted graphic and web designer, Paul leads Creatomatic's design team, bringing a decade and a half’s experience in creating beautiful, clean web and branding concepts. Joining Creatomatic in 2015 following a longstanding working relationship, Paul immediately revolutionised our game on all things design.

Paul deals with all front end web and graphic design projects, working directly with clients to turn their ideas into beautiful, functional websites, logos and printed media.

Alex Barbour

Web Developer

A Computer Science graduate, Alex works mainly on custom website development to get the very best out of WordPress.

Alex specialises in SuperControl API development and is responsible for the authorship of much of Creatomatic's SuperControl integration framework.

Jonny Tait

Web Developer

Originally joining the team in 2017 on the support help desk, Jonny has progressed onto our build squad, as well as taking ownership of much of the pre-launch testing and responsive layout build work in Creatomatic.

The epitome of the term 'a safe pair of hands', Jonny will often be a key point of contact with clients prior to websites launching, to get projects over the line and out into the world.

Zoe McMillan

Designer

Zoe joined us in late 2018 and immediately levelled up the design team. She’s the second Masters graduate on the roster, with an MSc in Product Design from Dundee and a range of creative and problem solving skills extending way beyond digital design.

Zoe shares design and creative responsibilities with Paul and Jamie, designing beautiful, functional website layouts with a clean and intuitive user experience throughout. She's also a talented graphic and branding designer, producing stunning logo and brand materials for clients.

Jack Ogston

Digital Marketing

Jack joined our digital marketing team in 2018. With a background in social and marketing and an Honours degree in Business Management, Jack brings a steady and sensible head to help clients plan their social campaigns and make their websites work for them.

Jack works with Creatomatic clients to identify sales strategies, opportunities to improve and develop their SEO, building social campaigns and writing clear, engaging copy for our websites.

Iona St.Joseph

Project Manager & Copywriter

We met Iona after working with her partner’s business, and hired her on the spot. With a Print Journalism degree, a stint writing articles read by millions for Buzzfeed UK, and over 10 years experience working in journalism, marketing and PR, Iona is the Project Manager at Creatomatic.

Iona splits her day between managing client projects and writing top-class, search engine-friendly content which is informative and easy to read, as well as comprehensive enough to encourage sales and enquiries from across the board.

Kelsey Paterson

Support

Graduating from Edinburgh's Napier University with a Digital Media degree Kelsey joined the team mid-2020 and now looks after the help desk and frontline support. She'll often be the person clients talk to the most and is rapidly becoming the safest pair of hands we have.

Reliable and completely unflappable, we've yet to find anything she can't turn her hand to.

Jamie Stryker

Graphic Design & Illustration

Originally hailing from California, Jamie joined us in late 2021 and brings a wealth of branding, graphics and beautiful hand-drawn illustration skills to our design team.

Jamie looks after logo and branding projects with a particularly keen eye for print, apparel and packaging designs to produce a comprehensive suite of branded materials. Jamie's illustrations add a rich and gorgeous new level of depth to our web and print works.

Chris Goodfellow

Web Developer

Another Dundee University graduate, Chris G joined our development team in early 2022, a week after completing Code Institute's Diploma in Software Development. Originally hailing from Newcastle, Chris now splits his working week between Glasgow and Lockerbie.

He's quickly established himself and develops front and back-end web projects, pitching in on client support and helping maintain our own systems and platforms.

Amy Gibson

Business Development Manager

Joining us in 2022, Amy is an experienced sales and marketing professional. Amy looks after many of our new clients, and is likely to be one of the first people you speak to at Creatomatic.

If hobbies including biking, snowboarding and Land Rovers wasn't enough, she's also leading the race for our most interesting and varied CV, having spent a number of years as a Catamaran Master among other roles.

Shannon Peat

Business Development Assistant

Shannon joined us in the summer of 2022, after recently gaining her BA Hons degree at nearby University of the West of Scotland in Business and Management.

An experienced digital marketer, Shannon looks after many of Creatomatic's managed clients, tapping into a wealth of digital marketing and online sales knowledge to help them get the most from their investments.
