Martin is the guy that first got the ball rolling for
Having been involved in a Manchester based, family run,
internet start-up for many years, Martin started to
develop the idea of an independent company. Using his
business experience and utilising the skills of the
team around him, Martin was able to make that idea a
reality and the outcome is Manchester Made. Our clients
are often in close communication with Martin throughout
the duration of their projects as he works tirelessly
to ensure that projects remain on track and clients
expectations are always met. Martin sometimes wears the
same clothes as Jim.
Billy is the guy who's work our clients never see,
but always appreciate.
With his years of experience, wealth of knowledge in
programming languages, commitment to detail and his
drive to find new and innovative development methods,

Although he initially dreamed of becoming the next
Steven Spielberg, he soon found another strength;
Website development. Since beginning his journey more
than 8 years ago studying Multimedia & Internet
Technologies; he has built software including, Payroll
Solutions, Data Management Software, Bespoke Shopping
Carts and Marketing Solutions.
Billy hasn’t forgotten his passion for photography and
his skill for movie making and is often seen with his

Andy is proof that a leopard really can change its
Andy started his career as a Graphic Designer over 15
years ago and whilst refining his traditional design
skills, the link between Graphic Design and the web
became apparent. He began to develop his digital skills
and after being self taught for many years, Andy is now
a highly proficient front and back-end developer.
Utilising his unique blend of design, development, UI,
and UX disciplines, Andy is able to deliver the bespoke
solutions our clients wish for. By keeping a close eye
on this rapidly changing industry, he also keeps the
team up to date on the latest trends and technologies.
Martin is the guy that redefines the term,
If something doesn't work, we ask Martin. Email,
servers, printers, networks, telecoms - Martin
definitely keeps things running smoothly at the office.
Beyond that though, Martin's broad spectrum of
knowledge benefits our clients too. When clients need
third party services such as analytics, email campaigns
and various forms of tracking, it will be Martin who
links those services to the website or app and then
moderates them so the client gets the best of what they
have to offer. These services often provide our clients
with ideas about how they can improve their service and
Martin is at the heart of that.
There's no 'i' in team, but there is in
Of course, that attitude simply wouldn't work at
Manchester Made so we are fortunate that it isn't a
statement in which Jim truly believes. On the contrary,
Jim's background in Graphic Design &
Illustration means he gets involved in most of the
projects we work on. The skills that Jim developed at
the University of Salford are an invaluable addition to
the team. Focusing only on the visual aspects of our
projects allows Jim to think freely, unconstrained by
the limitations of technology, which in turn challenges
the development team to create websites and apps that
defy the usual conventions. Jim sometimes wears the
same clothes as Martin.
Ryan is our newest recruit. Our newest front-end,
designer and developer.
Ryan studied Web Development at Manchester Metropolitan
University and although he's a front-end guy
primarily, he's rising to all the challenges we
throw at him and is rapidly expanding his skill set.
Ryan came to us after a months internship at Reading
Room Manchester, where he was able to refine the skills
he had acquired at university. Ryan brought to the team
a knowledge of the latest front-end technologies but he
appreciates that learning never ends in this industry,
so he always keeps up to date with trends and advances
by closely following the work of some of the industries
most revered peers.
