Ash is the captain of the Evoluted ship and makes sure his crew are all heading in the same direction. Although Ash wanted to be a stockbroker when he was little, he declined the cutthroat life of Gordon Gekko and opted for a more honest, but no less exciting profession as co-founder of Evoluted. Today Ash’s influences are far more balanced and he gains inspiration from Evoluted’s team spirit and outstanding work and President Bartlet’s thoughtful style of leadership.

Andy’s job at Evoluted is to build beautiful websites and he’s particularly happy when he’s doing this to the sounds of The Smiths and Radiohead. A classical guitarist in the making, Andy enjoys a challenge at work too and likes to give his brain a workout by building fantastic websites for clients. When the working day is done, you’ll find Andy watching films on the biggest screen he can find.
Tea maker, biscuit dunker and heavy sleeper, Evoluted’s co-founder Gareth is an eclectic mix. Part footy fan, part beer drinker and part rally driver, Gareth had lofty dreams of becoming an astronaut as a child but stayed on Earth and settled on leading the Evoluted team to world domination instead.
She once wanted to write children’s books, loves paddling in the shallows at the beach, and counts a giant cuddly Nervous Rex from Toy Story and a model of Japanese cartoon character among her most treasured belongings. Not only that, she loves fluffy bunnies.
But self-confessed foodie Becky does an exceedingly grown-up job at Evoluted, creating great websites for our clients, having joined the team in January 2015.
Fine food, intellectual chitchat and ping pong make the Evoluted office the ideal workplace for lead designer Will. Victory comes naturally to Will as he’s a regular at the top of the Evoluted ping pong league and when he’s slicing up the ice as a forward for the Sheffield Spartans ice hockey team.
Jenny is an artist both with paints and a canvas and with a graphics tablet as she designs user-friendly works of art for print and web for our clients. A lover of real ale, Jenny can often be found in Kelham Island’s Fat Cat pub after a hard day designing.
Experienced designer Adam has spent his career to date working on a mix of digital, print and design projects. A former boxing amateur at Uni, he’s designed posters for a number of big fights in Europe.
When he wasn’t competing between the ropes during his studying days, Adam was busy earning a BA in Illustration - which led to a role at a digital studio in London. Following a few years working down South, he ventured up to The North to marry his wife, a local of the area, back in 2013.
Now with Evoluted, one of Adam’s favourite parts of the job is the collaborative nature of studio life. He relishes working to deadlines with other designers and developers and takes satisfaction from delivering great projects for clients.
Self-confessed music geek Jen joined the Evoluted team in March 2017, following our takeover of Reflow Studio. A former Aberdeen College student, Jen is now enjoying settling into her latest role with us as a Graphic Designer.
For Jen, the best thing about working in the digital industry is the fact that no one day is ever the same - with each new project bringing a new challenge and a fresh chance to test her skills.
Away from work, Jen has a keen interest in photography, whilst she also enjoys travelling in her VW camper. In keeping with her Aberdeenshire roots, she’s also a budding fire-spinner – although this was actually inspired during time spent in Australia.
At the age of twelve James knew he wanted to be a web developer and an undisclosed number of years later he joined Evoluted where he maintains and develops countless websites using various languages, tools, blood, sweat and tears. Always trying to better himself, he strives for improvement as a developer, a gamer, a pianist and as the chief taster of various chicken-based cuisine.
Myke is a rocker at heart and enjoys thrashing about having a dance at Sheffield’s Corporation rock club or strumming his purple Ibanez SA260. As a website developer at Evoluted, Myke loves the relaxed atmosphere of the workplace and also has a perverse liking for styling CSS.
Football mad Stewart once dreamed of a glittering career as Derby County’s number 9 but fate led him to Evoluted instead where he’s a web developer and winner of go-karting competitions. He’s not sidelined his footy career to the bench yet though as he regularly plays and hasn’t ruled out his chances of a career at Derby on Fifa either.
A relative newcomer to Evoluted, Rick’s job is to make sure websites have the coding to work properly. He wanted to be the creator of Wolfenstein 2 or Doom 2 as a young ‘un. Although he may not have realised that particular childhood dream, he spends his spare time playing GTA online, writing clever Smartphone apps or playing indie games – he also writes a travel guide website and loves to watch F1 racing. (As long as Vettel loses.) A fan of Disney World’s Epcot, Rick's most treasured possession is his aquarium, and he cites Jack Bauer from TV’s 24 as a key influence.

As a boy, Neil dreamed of playing for Manchester United, and he still loves footie and F1, but these days he’ll settle for armchair sportsmanship and putting his feet up with a nice slice of cake. While he admits to surgical attachment to his iPhone, even that’s not as important as his young son Alfie or fiancée, Jade. Based with us at Evoluted since April 2015, Neil loves working in our friendly team and helps make sure our clients websites are search engine friendly. Just don’t ask him to share his cake.
A lover of fine food, golf and football, Sean joined the Evoluted team in August 2015. Chiefly responsible for making sure that our clients’ websites are search engine friendly, he’s delighted to have found his true calling in Digital Marketing.
Bar a stint in Newcastle where he gained his degree, Sean has spent the rest of his 26 years living in his home city of Sheffield. He is now settled here with his long-term girlfriend.
Rarely seen without a coffee in-hand, his Nespresso machine is his most treasured possession. That and the rare occasions Arsenal win a trophy keep him ticking along nicely.
It isn't just cake that JP loves. It's all awesome and delicious food. That's certainly been helpful in fitting into the Evoluted team – but thankfully for his waistline, he also likes to get active in the great outdoors. So when he isn't chilling out with friends or catching a film at the cinema, gadget lover JP is canoeing or kayaking his way down rapids and rivers. Chuck him a bun if you see him.
A self-confessed problem solving enthusiast, Sam ensures that we stay at the cutting-edge of web development. Always on the lookout for ways to improve our internal processes, he joined the Evoluted team in February 2016.
Outside of work, Sam is at his happiest spending time in the outdoors. As a keen cyclist, climber and walker, he finds living on the edge of the Peak District a real bonus for extracurricular activities.
Naming his favourite place as the Forest of Dean, Sam is also a self-confessed DIY enthusiast. As a child, he had hoped to become an inventor. These days, he’s happy finding new ways to improve his home. Unsurprisingly, he names his toolkit and MacBook as his favourite possessions.
For Ed, living in Sheffield is ideal. As a keen mountain biker and hiker, the city’s close proximity to the surrounding countryside makes for excellent terrain to explore.
Having identified Evoluted as the place to continue his career progression, Ed is the most recent acquisition to our team. He spends his days searching for innovative ways to get our clients’ websites to rank.
Outside of work, Ed also puts his bright ideas to use on a successful lighting website, which he developed a number of years ago.

Now one of our frontend developers here at Evoluted, Byron helps to provide our clients with user-friendly websites. Within his role, he particularly enjoys that there’s always something new to learn.
When he’s not building websites, Byron particularly enjoys playing 5-a-side football, golf and snooker.
Andrew joined Evoluted in 2017 as part of our frontend development team. Like the rest of us at Evoluted, he’s a firm believer in the importance a website plays in modern business.
Andrew actually started out working in education, but quickly realised that the digital industry was his true calling. This led to two years working for Reflow Studio, prior to the company being acquired by Evoluted.
A real cycling enthusiast, Andrew regularly races his road bike for a team called Veloviewer. Away from his two-wheeled adventures, he’s happiest at work assisting start-up companies. He enjoys how much the web can help to transform a business in its early stages.
Things don’t always pan out as you expect. Having hoped to grow up to be some sort of Indiana Jones-Bear Grylls hybrid, James ultimately set his sights on becoming a web developer. This led him to Evoluted in 2016.
Whilst we can’t provide corridor-sized boulders for him to dodge, James does enjoy the working atmosphere here at Evoluted. Amongst other tasks, he works on website functionality and ensures that things work as expected when users provide creative input.
A fan of snowboarding and surfboarding, he professes to wheels somewhat disagreeing with him. Whilst he admits to wiping out fairly often offshore, he’s far more comfortable in snowy surroundings. Flaine, in the French Alps, is a favourite place to visit.
When he was younger, Joe initially hoped to become a gaming designer. His natural interest in the tech world instead led him into web development.
Since joining Evoluted, he’s put his skills to use developing content management systems for our clients. Having been tempted to the team by our city centre location, relaxed atmosphere and benefit scheme, Joe joined us in the summer of 2016.
Outside of work, you’ll commonly find him in the weightlifting section of a gym. A keen guitar player, his most treasured position is his Ibanez Jem. He names his biggest influence as Steve Cook, who he says helps to inspire his generally positive outlook on life.
Keen football fan Charlie joined Evoluted in 2016 as a Junior Web Developer. Currently with us part time, he will graduate from the University of Sheffield this year.
Charlie’s previous experience includes work as a part time developer on projects within Yorkshire’s holiday and tourism industry. Whilst here, he spends much of his time working on our in-house systems. This helps him to test skills that can be put to use effectively across our clients’ websites.
Charlie was keen to join Evoluted to hone his development skills amongst our close-knit team. Away from work, you’ll typically find him cheering on his beloved Hammers at his local. He also professes to make a mean 'spag bol'.
