Meeting another great company and helping them showcase their work.

Brief:

I was hired to build Revolution Bar’s on-line magazine the ‘New Inventive’. The brief was to improve upon their existing site, which had several visual and functional bugs that needed fixing.

Solution:

The site was primarily images, videos and music, so I kept it simple with large blocks of content, that clicked through to minimalist pages which displayed the relevant content. I custom build the whole site as a custom WordPress theme, allowing the administrators to modify the content each month as they added new issues.

Project Highlight:

Having great content to work with really opened the door for what I could build, helping give the magazine as much impact as possible in a relatively simple manner.

Brief:

I was hired by Manchester’s premier digital agency to build their design for an upcoming snack product called Zoobs. The design was provided for how the site should look for desktop and mobile, leaving the in-between aesthetics and the functionality to interpretation.

Solution:

The site was hand-coded utilising the latest BootStrap 3 for layout and mobile-readiness, this also provided an easy foundation for the agency’s developers to modify the site in future if required. I decided to add subtle reactive animations to multiple elements throughout the website to encourage interaction.

Project Highlight:

The agency were happy with the quality and speed of my work, and tried to recruit me, several times, to which I had to graciously decline.

 

Brief:

Scott’s Workear Ltd, required a high-performance, fully-fledged e-commerce store, on a budget. It needed to be able to handle stock-monitoring, tax settings, varied shipping fees, and nearly every other feature that some of the largest e-commerce stores have.

Solution:

A Magento CE edition store, utilising a custom-built theme modified from the default templates ensured the site was unique enough for the client whilst also being within their budget. The site was also built on a cost-effective, yet high-performance VPS server, to minimise page-loads and increase conversions, providing everything the client required.

Being able to provide real-business value to a great company.

Brief:

Another collaboration with the Leeds design agency ‘DUO’, who provided the classy, minimalist design for the high-street store and event hub “Lambert’s Yard”, ready to be built onto a Magento-Wordpress hybrid platform.

Solution:

The design had to be applied to an existing site, that utilised both Magento and WordPress (using an integration script), and so required in-depth knowledge of both platforms to carry out. The development was done on the live URL whilst using a holding page to face the general-public.

Project Highlight:

Working with such a brilliant design, and the challenge of applying it seamlessly to two separate platforms.

Brief

Graphic Designers and Design Agencies frequently approach me to build the site’s that they’ve designed, and this build was another example of how well that can work. With a short phone call, and a few emails, everything was understood and the build was finished within a few days. The brief was simply the design, make it looks as similar as possible, and implement the implied functionality!

Solution

I decided to custom build a WordPress theme to deliver this site with. That way we had 100% control over every aspect, and the custom back-end system was created to easily allow David to modify all of the content himself.

Project Highlight

Working with a new Graphic Designer and client, and everyone being thrilled with the results.
