I’m Grant Gibson. Welcome to my site…

My name is Grant Gibson. I’m the Digital Innovation Manager for the Herald & Times Group, the company behind The Herald, Evening Times and Sunday Herald newspapers. I manage the development team responsible for HeraldScotland, the Evening Times, Scotland’s Homes and a range of related sites and apps.

I write for The Herald newspaper on a semi-regular basis and occasionally take on public speaking engagements at schools, universities and industry events. I’ve also been on the British Council‘s digital advisory group since 2012.

In my spare time I’m a keen maker, using a blend of software and hardware to build projects featured in Popular Science, Make Magazine and IKEA Hackers.

I occasionally take on freelance design, animation and game development projects – see some examples of software and hardware projects here. I also have extensive experience of search optimisation, pay-per-click campaign management and web analytics.
