Web strategy fascinates me: I understand that a website is nothing without ongoing maintenance, updating, analysis, improvement and marketing so I always build sites optimised for user experience, search and social media. I have experience with e-commerce, APIs such as Google Maps and extensive practice with SEO/SMO.
Check out my portfolio and blog posts below. My portfolio archive is here.
Da Costa Coaching
A simple but elegant site, designed by Joshua Vanderbroek and realised as a custom Wordpress theme.
Our Solar Future
A fast-turnaround site to support the UK solar industry's campaign for increased government support for photovoltaic electricity production.
The Pure Package
This site was by far and away the most challenging website I've ever built. The theme itself was medium complex, but the challenge here was to replicate a bespoke service ordering system with off-the-shelf WordPress components. Completed using Gravity Forms, PHPurchase (fixed and modified) and a lot of thinking.
Designed by a top London designer and built with love for an old friend, this project was primarily about design, but does also feature a Flickr widget, custom post types and a custom menu. Check the site out to see this beautiful design in action.
This site required not only pixel-perfect build, but also a very lateral approach to delivering the solution that the client needed. The solution was developed as a custom child theme for Thematic, and features Salesforce web-to-lead integration and custom post types.
TSR Insight v2
Phase 2 for a valued and exciting client. This site was a particular challenge in terms of design where one pixel out of place would have ruined the design (it's even IE6 compatible!). Having been involved with the strategy and planning aspect of this build too, I was very pleased with the end result: a lightweight, content-focussed site that allows TSR Insight to generate traffic through genuinely interesting content, and then drive that traffic to their key calls to action.
Bags of Luxury
This was an unusual project, completed over a short timescale from brief to go-live. My client had previously commissioned a London agency to build the site for her based on design work previously done, but was very dissatisfied with both their service and quality of work. I then stripped the website's assets, took a full backup of the site, compiled a list of reasons why the website provided was not fit for purpose and then re-factored the website as a child theme for Thematic on top of WordPress.
