Gareth Hall

Gareth Hall

Lead Developer

Mixing the right business logic with the right technology solution takes a great decision maker with years of experience.

Gareth has these attributes in spades and makes a fantastic lead developer well known in the Auckland Drupal community.

When he's not presenting at Drupal meetup or contributing modules back to the community, Gareth is our lead architect, responsible for budget estimates and technology solutions.

Amber Wason

Amber Wason

Project Management & Lead Creative

Although a pure creative at heart, Amber advocates well defined content structure as the backbone to a great website.

This means guiding your project through a process of User Journies, Analytics Research, Site Maps and Wireframes before creating the responsive design which further enhances that user experience.

She's great at understanding client needs and will act as an effective conduit between you and the development team.

Elaine Ngeow

Elaine Ngeow

Designer & CSS Queen

No templates here!

Elaine is our talented front end dev responsible for designing and themeing Communica's projects into beautiful responsive websites (including this one).

As the resident themer, she enjoys pushing the boundaries of design and building them into beautiful, functional websites that offer great user experience. While a possible headache at times, she thrives on learning new things and experimenting with that knowledge in every project.

Ivan Liaskov

Ivan Liaskov

jQuery King

An excellent all round PHP developer with an excellent grounding in agile development, Ivan is a strong addition to the team.

Although working under the guidance of our lead dev, Ivan is a fully matured developer in his own right and brings thoughtfulness and creativity to the code he writes.

By breaking tasks down, no problem is insurmountable and we love his “can do” attitude.

Luckily, there’s always a variance of challenges at Communica to keep him on his toes!
