About Human Made Limited
We do world-class WordPress development for high-profile clients but we’re still the kind of people you’d like to go for a coffee with!
Human Made Limited was founded in July 2010 by brothers Tom and Joe and has had amazing success with clients such as Yell, Sony Ericsson, PayPal and the Chicago Tribune. We have grown over the last year, now employing three full time developers as well as 3 part timers. The secret of our success is our combination of expertise, imagination and approachability – and of course, we love what we do.
We specialise in high end WordPress developments for large, complex or high-traffic sites. These will typically involve a high degree of custom development such as plug-ins or extending WordPress and dealing with issues such as scalability and security. Each client provides a different challenge.
