Gwe Cambrian Web was launched in 2013 by Kerry Ferguson and Emlyn Jones and is based in Aberystwyth, mid-Wales.

The business idea was formed by the lack of Welsh websites that were available online, and, on looking into this further, the cost of having a website created bilingually. We thought, “Hang on, we can do this at a more affordable cost for small businesses”. Gwe Cambrian Web was born.

Year-on-year we’ve increased our client portfolio, and worked with a fab range of businesses, charities and organisations to help them get online and promote their passions further with digital marketing. There’s nothing more satisfying that seeing your client do well on social media, or the ranking of a website increase as work is done on search engine optimisation. We’re both passionate about digital – from coding to social media marketing.

Our excitement about delivering great website design means we’re continually keeping up to date with the latest developments, trends and tech. Alongside your website, you need strong digital marketing and social media. With over 10 years’ experience in marketing on social, we’re well equipped to help you reach more customers online.

 

Emlyn Jones

Emlyn is our technical lead on the functionality and development aspects of our projects. He looks at the more technical requirements of the brief. With a background specialising in geographic information systems (GIS), Emlyn works with a range of computer languages including PHP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Python. He loves nothing more than problem solving deep within the code of a website, and creating bespoke functionality for those more complicated sites.

Emlyn was the lead developer for Thema Cymru, which was launched in 2015. Thema is an open source resource for WordPress users, providing free bilingual templates for download. The project was funded as part of the Welsh Government’s digitisation grant.

Emlyn is also the joint owner of a brewery, Bragdy Pwll, which allows him to pursue his interests in both project development and good ales!
