A very exciting project for probably my biggest client to-date. This project started right out at the concept and strategy stage, and I was really privileged to work again with Atelier Grafik on the design side of things, and for the first time Paul Allen of Lark Media to create the content and copy for the site. The site combines relatively straight-forward functionality with impactful design and carefully-crafted content to convey the organisation’s unique positioning within the marketplace.
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.
This site was built for my brother’s girlfriend’s living foods business, to her own design and specification. I consulted with her to make sure the site would fulfil her business requirements then built it as a custom child theme of Thematic using WordPress, so she can easily update all aspects of the site and take bookings for her events.
