Who we are

Who are we indeed? Well, we are Nicola Hastings and Paul Anning, two web designers with a wealth of experience in building websites. Nicola started cannedSunlight in 2005 after she finished university gaining a BA(Hons) degree in Interactive Media Production, and an MA in Interactive Media. Paul joined the team in 2008 and added an extra dimension to cannedSunlight with his creative writing and ideas. Both Paul and Nicola come from a printing background and have spent many years in design and the production area of the media industry. Moving to the internet has been a natural and pretty smooth progression with the ocassional cry of ‘How?” and “Wow!” here-and-there along the way.

Nicola specialises in the technical side of web development, coding and search engine optimisation, with expert skills in project management and planning. Paul has learnt web design on-the-fly and prides himself on creating fully functional websites that conform to the current web standards – he writes in code too, so in some ways he is like a living, breathing machine!

From time to time cannedSunlight may also use experienced freelancers to help on projects where necessary. We often work with Simon Napper, a very talented and award-winning Senior Designer from the UK. He has a keen eye for detail and creates modern, fresh and exciting work. You can view Simon Napper’s own website here.
