Mark

Creative Director

Our resident creative genius and part-time musician, Mark is the driving force behind the stellar visuals we incorporate into our apps. He’s been with Novaflip since the start, helping us to build the reputation for exciting, engaging visual creations that help set us apart from the competition.

Prior to coming on board with Novaflip Mark was a creative content creator and videographer in the entertainment space, experience that has proved invaluable in his current role.

Daren

Principal, Cross Platform / Native - App Design / Development Expert, UX Guru

Novaflip’s Principal, Daren has been developing for iOS since 2008, entering the space just a few months after what would become one of the 20th century’s defining devices launched in late 2007. He began by developing and releasing his own apps, but it was not long before his talents were noticed by TomTom in Amsterdam and he was recruited to a team that went on to create one of the highest grossing apps for the iPhone.

Moving on from there, his clients have included Expedia, Samsung, O2, Sony, Huawei, JPMorgan, Gordon Ramsay and more, and he has created some of the best known apps in the App Store, using his skill for taking an idea and creating an app that meets and usually exceeds that vision, as well as the expectations for its commercial application.

As skilled in UX development, design and app marketing as he is in the technical aspects of app creation,  Daren is on a never ending quest to learn from others, while also conquering some of the most difficult physical challenges he can set himself, including Ironman events across the globe.

FRANCIS

Cross Platform / Native - App Design / Development

Francis is a coding superstar. He’s worked with a huge number of leading UK and global brands to develop mobile apps that have, collectively, been downloaded over 350 million times.

From his beginnings as a very successful solo developer in the early days of the App Store Francis has learned – by doing – what works and what won’t in the App Store and his knowledge and experience is invaluable to Novaflip’s day-to-day operations.

Francis’ clients have included Hotels.com, Nike+ Fuelband, RBS, Memrise, The Doctor Who Encyclopedia, Guinness World Records and many more. 17 of his apps have earned Apple’s ‘Choice of the Week’ title, some of them on multiple occasions. He specialises in native iOS app development and creating stellar cross platform apps with React Native.

Rafa

Cross Platform / Native - App Design / Development

When Rafa joined the Novaflip team, he instantly took the company to a new level of excellence, introducing us to Flutter for cross platform development work.

Rafa is also our Android expert, as he has been working in it since its inception, and so has a great understanding of an app’s expected functionality and how to code them ,working with clients to design the most cost effective solution to a given interface element. He is also a font of technical knowledge, something that proves invaluable to us and our clients every day.

As a true end-to-end developer, Rafa is as comfortable building out server architecture as building a cross platform app, and he manages our Continuous Integration and most of our business systems. Oh, and did we mention he’s also a professional squash player?
