Some Of The Fantastic Organisations That We Work With

Some Of Our Joomla Projects

Here's just a small sample of the websites we've created using the Joomla CMS. All of these sites were designed and built by us but we're also happy to work on an existing Joomla site that requires some Joomla expert attention, including bug fixes and migrations. For more, simply visit our case studies page, nearly all the sites there are built using Joomla.

Joomla Development Services

We are highly experienced in the development of websites and web apps using Joomla - in fact we've been using it since it started in 2006. We are also skilled at updating, upgrading and fixing Joomla websites that are no longer fit for purpose. 

Our Lead Joomla Developers

Out of our team of 10 web professionals, Rob Harrison and Dave Marshall are our go-to Joomla experts. Between them, they have built 100's of Joomla websites. Dave & Rob are currently being chased down by one of our junior developers Amy, whose Joomla skills are really starting to impress us.

Rob Harrison

Rob Harrison

You can read Rob's full bio here but since 2006 Rob's worked on the first Joomla series, version 1.x, through Joomla 1.5.x, 2.5.x and 3.10.x. He's also now developing using Joomla 4. Rob trained as a graphic designer and gained a BA in Graphic Design from Leeds University. When he started working for Red Evolution in 2006 he quickly recognised that combining his creative talents with Joomla coding and development work was a great combination for delivering the best Joomla websites.

Dave Marshall

Dave Marshall

Dave's bio which you can find here talks about his love of tractors but with respect to his Joomla credentials, they speak for themselves. Since leaving university in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) in Computing for Internet and Multimedia, Dave, like Rob, has developed hundreds of Joomla websites. His meticulous attention to detail and deep understanding of Joomla is something to behold. Dave's happiest when working with Diana on implementing a fantastic design using the Joomla CMS but he's also the man when it comes to fixing a gnarly Joomla bug.
