Damian Cugley

I am an Australian web developer living and working in Oxford, England.

My favourite framework is Django (Python) but I know from experience I can get the job done in any number of other systems. I’ve done my fair share of application and system programming as well.

I love beautiful, useful things, so I work hard on code quality and I appreciate good design and typography.


As well as commercial work, I have built several side projects for the fun of it.

  • CAPTION is Oxford’s annual comics convention, and I designed and built its website.

  • Jigsawr is an instant virtual jigsaw creator, originally created as a entry in a 10K website contest.

  • Kanbo is a work-in-progress task board for agile project management.
