The Caged Fish story

We are a small, friendly and efficient web design studio based in Market Harborough, South Leicestershire, comprised of 5 web ninjas and a fish, each versed in different arts of website creation.

We specialise in web design, eCommerce site design, search engine optimisation and online marketing. Over and above these skills, what we offer is a non-jargonistic, friendly, helpful service, where we advise on all things website related.

We deal with companies ranging from one-man bands to start-ups to large corporations, offering the same level of friendly advice to one and all. Our ethos is to enable, educate and empower because after years in this game we’ve learnt the more a client takes ownership of their site, the more successful it is.

We are also proud to be a member of www.workingbreakfast.com

our story

Steve Hawkins


Begun Caged Fish with Garry at the start of the internet revolution. He’s the guy who gets the work, sorts the accounts and makes the admin side of the company tick. An 80’s rocker, Steve is still rocking the free world with his band Chrome Molly… an album and a tour a couple of years ago…

our story

Garry Aston


Started Caged Fish when the internet was in its nappies. A graphic designer by trade, but happy to get his hands dirty with some coding, though he mainly oversees the studio and takes design briefs now. He’s also a prolific pencil drawer, a religious Leicester Tigers fan and an evangelist for all things Apple.

Jamie Grove

Web Monkey Extraordinaire

Jamie is the resident WordPress (our favoured CMS system) guru. What he can’t achieve in WordPress isn’t worth doing. In his spare time, Jamie likes to go sub-aqua diving and has recently been on a trip to the Red Sea to sample their underwater delights. He’s also recently spent 2 weeks watching gorillas in Uganda.

Mark Perkins

Graphic Monkey

He’s a whiz with a pencil (who do you think Simpsonified us?) and a creative guru who’ll make your company look the best it possibly can on the internet. Mark has 2 very lively sons and so has chosen to put his guitar to one side for now to mentor them in the dark art of death metal…

Nikki Brecknock

Padawan Web Monkey

Named after the awesome bass player Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe but from the distant land of Kibworth. Our resident padawan is learning to be multi-skilled in all things web, to tackle a variety of online projects. For fun, Nikki streams on Twitch, listens to metal and watches anime.
