Looking for something in the CQ? Creative Quarter?


Ian Stapleton

New Mugshot

I'm a Nottingham based freelance developer with over fifteen years of experience of delivering websites and software for customers ranging from small local businesses through to large national and multi-national household brands

I help businesses overcome the challenges of building user focused software products for mobile and the web.

★ Digital Prototyping ★
Digital prototypes take visual wire frames to the next level: validating key technology choices and partner integrations. As a demonstrator for software intellectual property and product value-propositions, they are often a way to provide investor confidence, securing funding for full development.

★ Technical Strategy ★
Helping businesses define the core functionality of their web or mobile product - the information it handles, the third-party systems it works with and, most importantly, how it will support growing in the future

★ Solution Development ★
With commercial experience of projects ranging from single page, high fidelity micro-sites to multi-tenant global SaaS data systems, I am confident delivering any size project.


Modern urban living in and amongst refurbished lace factories and warehouses. On-trend independent retailers and many bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, arts cinema and theatres. A buzz in the daytime and a rhythm at night.
