The Growpress Story

We started Growpress with a simple idea: Help people get the most from their WordPress website without breaking the bank.

We’ve been working with WordPress since 2008 and have built more than 500 WordPress sites for bloggers, small businesses, multinationals and non-profits.

Who we are

Growpress is Dave Wilkinson, Karin Wilkinson and a group of skilled freelance web designers, programmers, SEOs and copywriters (the 2 kids in the picture below are not them. That would be child labour).

We work from the market town of Thirsk, North Yorkshire and we have customers around the world.

In case you’re wondering, Dave is the ugly one in the middle and Karin refuses to have her photo taken for the Interwebs

Dave has more than 20 years experience in marketing and has been building & promoting websites since 2000. He is a self-taught front-end web developer with a love of clean code and an eye for design. Occasionally he writes on the Growpress blog, but usually he’s too busy shouting at the Internet.

Karin is probably too OCD to work in the Web industry, but she does a bang-up job of scheduling projects, keeping our accounts in order and doing the general office management stuff Dave usually ignores.
