SOME OF THE PROJECTS I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING ON:
I worked with Award-winning Social Media Agency, Digital Visitor to develop numerous new features across their website’s front-end functionality and design.
I also created custom solutions for their content management system, enabling them to manage their content more efficiently. In addition I implemented SEO optimisations to improve the site’s ranking on search engines.
Alongside their own website, I have helped Digital Visitor with a number of successful web campaigns including: Visit Malta, Visit Jersey, Clearzil and IHG Rewards Club.
I worked alongside Bristol marketing communications agency: Saintnicks, to create a responsive website for media market researchers: TRP Research.
The site uses a modified WordPress theme with a customised back-end, allowing the client to manage their case studies, job advertisements and a news page.
In addition to developing a number of front-end and back-end solutions for the Soil Association website, I also provide IT consultancy for the business. This encompasses database administration and SQL development, migration from legacy software to modern web applications and general technical support to the project team.
Microtec Microscopes wanted a responsive website with a clean and intuitive design to present their catalogue of microscopes and accessories. They also wanted the ability to easily maintain product descriptions and prices.
This project required me to learn the various applications of microscopy in order to find the best way to categorise and arrange the catalogue. The site uses a custom built WordPress theme to assist the client in maintaining an up-to-date product catalogue, straight from the browser.
Moules & Mora
To help Georgina Moule, Sophie Moule and Jess Mora raise money for Bristol hospitals, I created this website to advertise the fundraising events they had organised, display raffle prizes donated by local businesses and bring awareness to their cause.
The site was optimised for mobile and for social media to enable fast propagation throughout their social channels. They successfully surpassed their fundraising target and in May 2015 completed an epic 430 km cycle ride, spanning 4 days, from Bristol to Paris!
Meiji Techno hired me to create a new, modernised, CMS website to manage and display their extensive catalogue of high-end microscopes & accessories.
With the majority of their customer-base being accustomed to laboratory conditions and studying specimens in high detail, we felt that the new website should reflect this – with a clean, minimal layout, and colourful, eye-catching microscopy imagery.
During my time at Microsoft I was tasked to create a guide, which taught SQL programming functions with example syntax pertaining to internal databases.
I decided to produce the documentation in the form of a mini website. I used an off-screen, slide-in menu design in order to utilise maximum screen space for the content and a clean, consistent layout to make it easy to read the content.
Saintnicks asked me to help them create a modern, responsive, pre-opening website for a brand-new STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) academy in North Somerset.
The site served to provide information to prospective students and their parents, advertise open evening events and job opportunities, capture data for enrolment and job applications and also provided regular updates on the building progress of the new facilities.
Once built, I continued maintaining the site’s content, provided analytics and deployed updates throughout various phases of the project. The site has now been replaced by a ‘post-opening’ website, which is maintained by the client.
Transform Your Schools
I was hired to redesign and implement new features to this existing WordPress website for Transform Your School. I continue to provide adhoc maintenance on the site.
NSETC Email Newsletters
I was also asked to manage the build and delivery the monthly e-newsletters until they were able to manage this in-house. For this I implemented a newsletter application, utilising Amazon Web Services which allowed me to bulk send unlimited emails and monitor the success of the campaigns.
Workman Email Newsletter
For property managers & building surveyors Workman, I built a number of HTML email newsletters, based on designs by Saintnicks.
InterContinental Hotels Group
IHG manages IHG Rewards Club, the world s first and largest hotel loyalty programme with over 73 million members worldwide.
Social media agency Digital Visitor commissioned me to create a multilingual, cross-device splash webpage for a marketing campaign to drive brand awareness and increase memberships within the UK & France, coinciding with the 20 year anniversary of the channel tunnel.
CANVAS is a testing data collection & presentation tool I created as a personal project during ‘Hack Week’ at Microsoft.
The tool was first used at Microsoft to capture and present user acceptance test data on competing music streaming services – using various devices – against different cellular network providers – across 31 different territories.
Users have the ability to create test scripts and input results. It is then possible to switch between different combinations of variables, dynamically rendering interactive charts allowing the visualisation of key metrics.
CANVAS quickly highlighted to the Market Effectiveness team scenarios where the music service would not perform well, allowing the business to make informed decisions when partnering in specific territories.
Coaching For Progress
Coaching For Progress wanted a clean design for their website based around the colours of their brand.
The site serves to explain their innovative approach to coaching, backed up with independent research evidence and their own case studies.
They also required a news section to publish updates on projects & useful information for schools & teachers.
I continue to maintain the site for Coaching For Progress and also manage their news posts & HTML email newsletters.
Product Watchlist was web application I created during MixRadio’s annual, internal hack week. The tool allowed users to search for specific digital music product deliveries in the content processing system, add them to a watch list and get email notifications as the product or update made its way through the various stages of processing for the music streaming service.
It proved to be particularly useful for entertainment managers and playlist programmers who wanted to be notified if a particular track or album was made available or needed removing from live campaigns.
To build this tool I used a series of SQL scripts to retrieve and update data to various database tables, these scripts sat behind a user interface I designed, which was written using a combination of PHP, HTML, Ajax, jQuery and CSS.
