About HandPressed

WordPress artisan

Hello. I’m Nick, and I run HandPressed. I’ve been making websites and administering web servers for over 20 years. These days I specialize in WordPress website design and development. I’m based on the Isle of Purbeck, in Dorset.

When I’m not making websites I’m advocating for (re-)decentralizing the web, reminding everyone that Facebook and Google are fundamentally evil, reading (some of my favourite books are The Dharma Bums and Big Sur by Jack Kerouac, Wolf: A False Memoir and A Good Day to Die by Jim Harrison, A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar, and Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by Jon Lee Anderson), watching films (favourites are The Big LebowskiWithnail and IWonder BoysAlmost FamousAll the President’s Men, Pulp Fiction, and Dazed and Confused), listening to music, and walking in the beautiful Dorset countryside.

If you want to know more about me and what I do, feel free to email me, or reach out to me on Twitter.

If you’d like to chat to me about a WordPress project, I’d love to hear from you.
