We're driven to create beautiful, smart and useful online products. We believe that every online experience should be a wonderful journey that brings both pleasure and real, tangible benefits – without compromise.
The Internet is the epitome of progression and we believe that by firmly embracing this fact, we can play a stronger role in changing the digital world around us. Also, by constantly enhancing, improving, refining and evolving the we way work, we can pass on those benefits to our clients and their projects alike.
Above all else, we believe in honesty and integrity and consider it an important foundation in everything we do. Establishing good relationships is key to any successful project and that can only be achieved by creating a sense of trust through openness. Good or bad, we’re honest about everything we say and do.
The content of a site or application is incredibly important as it not only influences functionality and design but also user emotion, understanding and interaction. All of our designs, features and strategies are driven by this underlying concept and we strongly believe in emphasising content in all its forms.
Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Espen moved to the UK in 2003 to earn a Ba Hons in Graphic Design before honing his skills with several digital and design agencies throughout Edinburgh. A print designer originally, he now draws upon his editorial design roots to specialise in interactive, responsive, user-centered design.
With a strong clarity of vision and unyielding design integrity, Espen is responsible for the creative direction at Primate.
Growing up in an idyllic monkey sanctuary did nothing to quench the thirst this orangutan felt to spread his joy for all things design. With unabashed confidence and armed with nothing but a crayon and a sharpie, Espen recently ventured forth into the urban jungle with the aim to help change the world for the better.
Passionate, thoughtful and frequently uncouth, this orangutan is determined to set alight the fires of creativity that lurks within all primates.
Backed by a First Class Honours in Computing, Gordon has worked in the web industry since 2005 in various key development and management roles. With a vast amount of experience in digital project life cycles and a staggering love of content, he utilises his development background to guide projects from conception to launch and beyond.
Guiding the strategic vision of Primate, Gordon works closely with our clients to help them realise their businesses online.
Mild mannered, strong of will, and occasionally slumbersome, this gorilla feels a deep love and responsibility for his fellow apes. Loyal and resolute, with a strong sense of commitment, Gordon has vowed to guide his primate companions on their journey to world domination - stopping for appropriate naps along the way.
When not marking his territory or pounding his chest triumphantly, this gorilla can be found snoozing contently in the trees.
With a Master’s degree in Philosophy from the prestigious Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, Bart was well suited to turning his analytical mind to solving the needs of the online industry. Now a champion of progressive web technology, his innate desire for structure and quality is only equalled by his passion for elegant code.
When not contemplating the philosophical quandaries of programming, Bart leads our development team and sets the company’s technical direction.
After beating his captor to death with a makeshift wooden club, Bart masterminded a successful prison breakout, leading his fellow chimpanzees to their long awaited freedom. Due to years of devising complex traps and deadly ambushes, Bart is infamous for his ingenuity and cunning, qualities matched only by his taciturn demeanor.
A master of intricate tools and makeshift explosives, this chimpanzee is considered by many to be not only highly intelligent but also incredibly dangerous.
