Chris Guy

Website developer


Hello, my name is Chris. I’m a web developer working predominantly with open source technologies such as Python, Django and Wagtail CMS.

I enjoy working with clients and have the ability to explain technical and complex topics to a non-technical audience. I have also led digital teams through the entire project lifecycle.

If you are looking for a website or web app with a content management system, a bespoke integration, or are simply looking for a developer to work on your existing project, please get in touch for a chat.


My digital journey began in 1997 when I created a website for my commercial photography business. The site was a success and in order to build upon that I joined Concise, a London events company, to head up their newly founded multimedia department. We produced websites and CD-Roms to support live events.

In 2004 I set up my own digital agency, pixel1024, specialising in B2B websites and interactive media press packs. Close collaboration with two other agencies led to the formation of FP Creative in 2010, where I was co-owner and Digital Director. I led a team of UX and UI Designers, Developers and content specialists as we continued to grow the business, delivering a suite of digital products including mobile apps and websites. FP Creative is now Foxtrot Papa.

In 2015 I moved from London to Bristol and worked as Technical Director at Modular Digital. I also joined the board of Trustees at Frank Water, an international development charity and social enterprise. Here I was instrumental in the setup of the new Frank Water website by establishing a collective of digital professionals who volunteered their time and creativity - see blog for more.

Having somewhat moved away from hands-on programming and into agency and project management, I made the decision to switch back. To facilitate this I enrolled at Treehouse on a Python Web Development Techdegree course at the start of 2019.

Once I graduated, I was able to move directly into commercial development work. Since then, I have been building a comparison engine and API for startup Avoir Fashion, working with the team at Illustrate Digital. In addition, I've built an accommodation booking site for Castle Chase Cottages in Rutland and delivered project work for openDemocracy, supporting their Wagtail website.

Finally, a mention for, my personal photography website and blog, originally a WordPress site but now rebuilt in Wagtail.

Recent Work

A few of the projects that I've worked on recently.

Avoir Fashion website

Working alongside Illustrate Digital I built the product comparison engine that powered this e-commerce fashion website. The project was built in Python on the Django web framework.

Castle Chase Cottages website

A project for SMC creative, this site for Castle Chase Cottages launched at the end of 2022. Built using Wagtail CMS it integrates with the SuperControl booking system. Visit website.

Having begun working with Wagtail it felt natural to migrate my old WordPress blog onto a new Wagtail site. Worth it for the improvements in the admin area alone! Visit website.
