WCD was established in 2011 by Dean, after he achieved a first class degree in Multimedia Technology and Design and spent a year working at Mediatonic, a London-based games development agency. As Managing Director but also our lead backend developer, Dean is looking to expand WCD further after growing slowly to build up a strong client base and a wide range of capabilities. As a result of the alarmingly regular enquiries about themes and replacing websites that don’t work for clients, Dean is determined to show what web development can achieve when it is bespoke and solution-led.
He likes shouty music, golf and cheesecake.
