About Me

Simon Philp

I work for DigitasLBi within the Production Engineering team in our Edinburgh office as a Developer. Outside of my main job I am also a freelance fitness instructor. I have a passion for Les Mills programmes of which I went from participant to body combat instructor.

When I can, I like to snowboard, go mountain biking and hit the gym when not teaching. I have just started diving into the depths of magic with sleight of hand tricks and finally got time to pursue my interest in photography.


Every now and again I have time to do some freelance projects. I have over 10 years experience developing for the web with Microsoft technologies. Some examples of previous work but not limited to:

  • Development using the .Net framework.
    • CMS’s.
    • WCF services.
    • Blogging Platforms.
    • Custom Web/Windows Applications.
    • Database design and implementation.
  • CSS/HTML builds.
  • WordPress setup and website/blog builds.
  • WordPress themes and widgets.
  • Website design tidy ups.
  • jQuery Plugins, web site functionality, jQuery UI.
  • Subtext skin development.
  • Advice on website performance, best practices, user interaction and social media.
