Graeme Attkins started developing business websites in 1996, when the internet as we know it today was very much in its infancy. By 2000, he was helping Glasgow Caledonian University develop courses for its Business department.
In 2001, Graeme joined the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), where he built and managed the web team until 2005. During this time, he developed several new online platforms that, combined, saved SQA more than £1.5m a year in operating costs. He also delivered the first accessible government-funded website in Scotland, working hand-in-hand with the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) and the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) to help define use-case scenarios that form the accessibility standards used today.
In 2005, seeking new challenges, Graeme started Frecosse Website Design and, working from his home office, delivered online solutions to a wide range of clients including: Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Bank, Tesco Bank, Kwik-Fit, Green Insurance, Yamaha, Toshiba, Edinburgh College of Art, Stirling University, Scottish Institute for Enterprise and Young Enterprise Scotland.
In January 2017, Colin joined forces with Graeme to launch Peroosh.
