Website design & development

Services

As a creative director I design and project manage all website, UI and App projects.

I’m a front-end designer. So I can design your website to fit your existing corporate identity or if I’m also designing or re-branding your corporate identity, I’ll design your website from the start on a basic and strategic level with the corporate identity in mind.

I will also project manage web and app design projects which may include my network of freelance developers, coders, photographers and copywriters, any of whom I can utilise on a per project basis – should they be required.

Design for the web has moved on enormously both in the past 10 years and even more in the past 2-3 years.

Examples of huge progress includes, for instance, the introduction of Google Fonts as well as the ability to create text, background and parallax effects as rich HTML based animations which were previously only possible with Flash, for example, or extremely advanced and therefore expensive coding.

Many very impressive web options can now be coded in HTML5 and can greatly enhance your customer experience, and your ability to capture data and use that to further target customers, again, has moved on substantially.

I can deliver all of that for you, but it still needs to be designed with an overview to the bigger picture of your objectives.

CASE STUDY 1:
DUNCAN FORBES.
Website design & development.

Based in Jersey, Channel Islands, Duncan wanted to both consolidate his entire music back catalogue as well as to create a new platform for promotion of his music for the film industry, as well as new releases that he’s got planned – both as collaborations, re-mixes and new solo work.

The website I’ve designed is Uber functional and I’ve taken a “Brutalist” approach to the design to almost, as it were, under-design it. There’s alot of information on this site so simplicity of design was vital.

CASE STUDY 2:
SMYTHE HOUSE.
Website design, art direction and image creation

Working freelance as head of design for The Refinery for many years, one of my favourite projects was for Smythe House, a London based financial services company.

Integral to my design included bespoke photography. So I briefed and art directed one of my go-to London-based photographers to deliver precisely my creative vision.

Designed in 2012 I hope this design still stands the test of time.

CASE STUDY 3:
PHOTOBUS.
Website design & development – & to integrate to the clients & users online purchasing systems

A dear friend of mine came to me with one of his many business ideas and needed a functioning website to deliver his business model.

Photobus is, as it implies, – an American trailer – which could be put into any party or corporate event – and would take pictures of the guests which they could both print out there and then and later, buy, download & distribute through social media.

The website therefore involved both the front end design as well as integrating the back-end set up to work as an online shop.

CASE STUDY 4:
CABCALC.
Branding, UI and App design.

CabCalc is an accounts management App – available in IoS and Android.

Inspired and created by a taxi driver who wanted to make his life simpler.

Logo design, User Interface (UI) and icon design as well as screen design CabCalc is a simple principle that could be applied to almost any cash-based small business model (with design modifications).
