Andrew Thomas

Technical director at Hoffi Limited

Areas of expertise:


I’m a designer, developer and strategist. I’m an expert in strategic planning, design and information architecture, and development of digital projects using web-based technology and scripting languages. As Technical Director at Hoffi Limited, I have planned, designed and developed digital projects for both private and public sector customers, specifically with a strong focus on the Arts and Culture sector.I’m innovative in my approach to projects: considering the overall goal to be greater than the need to meet with the technology constraints. Discovering these goals collaboratively and then forming a strategy for the development of the project is, you could say - what makes me excited about digital technology.The first website I developed was in 1996 since then some of my key achievements include:

  • In 2000, I started an online community to provide a voice for my home town of Aberdare and the Cynon Valley, and have kept it running for over 15 years.
  • In 2005/06 I lead the design of the Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru / National Library of Wales website.
  • 2006, developing Wales’ first digital education platform that specifically focus on raising awareness on Climate Change and sustainability. 
  • In 2009, designing and developing a website for Wales’ English language national theatre company: National Theatre Wales.
  • 2013, working with Ffotogallery to plan, design and develop their european wide photographer showcasing project;
  • 2015, developing a digital strategy for the National Eisteddfod of Wales: 

I work in an industry that I love and feel its more than just a career; digital and in particular online is something that I’ve always loved.
