Working for a fantastic London-based charity, and teaming up again with Simon Bottrell of 7creative, the functionality of this site really pushed my use of Custom Post Types and inter-relating content to the max. I also did some pretty cool stuff with the jQuery Crossslide plugin, using WordPress to manage the gallery and some cool loop-stuff to populate the crossslider itself.

This was a great project, working again with Atelier Grafik. He did some great work creating a new identity for the company, then designing a new site around that. I then developed the site as a child theme for Thematic, using the jCarousel, some jQuery UI, Cufon and some cool custom post type work.
This one’s a bit unusual. The (lovely) couple who run this business are very old, very good friends of mine, so I took the risk of doing the design work myself to keep the project as cheap as possible for them. In the end, I reckon it’s turned out pretty well 🙂 jCarousel is used to showcase the chalets (both an overview and the interior of each), and a revised site structure helps a blog to drive bookings, which according to the client has proved successful.
Designed and planned by the lovely folks at the Madano Partnership, this site uses WordPress and a custom child theme of Thematic to provide a number of different custom post types, carousels and neat functionality to convey effectively their commercial offering.
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.
