Glass Mountains are a web design & digital strategy company working with global clients.

We specialise in designing and supporting WordPress websites and have helped countless businesses & organisations significantly improve the effectiveness of their online presence, and their digital strategies – see some examples of our work.

We have been operating as a digitally distributed, remote agency for over 5 years. Many of our clients are also remote (from the US) so if you are looking for a highly experienced team who can help remotely improve your WordPress site, we are the perfect fit.

I never recommend vendors to business associates out of fear that something will go wrong. However, that’s NOT the case with Glass Mountains. Joel and his team are true pros who understand business as well as they create amazing websites. Here’s the Glass Mountains secret… they listen to the client. My website should be as unique as my business, and Glass Mountains exceeded our expectations with a site that is able to handle lots of new traffic thanks to the best practices and business savvy they employed throughout the entire design process. These people get it! Highly recommended.

Joel Hughes (Chief Mountaineer)

Joel started at an early age watching programmes such as Making The Most of the Micro and anything else that was even vaguely related to computers. He studied Computing at the University of Plymouth and obtained a 2:1 degree. He has an impressive 25+ years IT industry experience; working with blue-chip companies such as American Express, Royal Sun Alliance, British Airways. In the late 90’s he was working on OS/390 IBM mainframe computers but soon moved over to web technology; which looked like it had a bit of a future 😉

“Change is the only constant in the world of digital technology. We love the change and the challenge. And that’s why our clients trust Glass Mountains to help steer them through these choppy waters.”
