Web UX / UI

As well as designing the user experience, I also enjoy crafting HTML / CSS and Javascript.

Harry Potter Monopoly Special Edition mini-site

A while back I looked online for a Harry Potter Monopoly edition only to find out (to my surprise) that there is no official version! So I decided to go ahead and design my own. From the board to the cards to the money, I’ve re-designed everything to fit the Harry Potter theme.

Chaka Travel

Chaka Travel Website

Chaka Travel presented a challenge of offering predominantly golf holidays but also highlighting weddings / honeymoons, tailor-made and sports holidays. We found that the search became more and more important and this led us to revamping the homepage to make the most use of this. Constantly revamping the user journey was a fantastic experience as people could arrive at offers from multiple ways and the hotel pages, golf courses, offers, destination pages all had to be interlinked.

One School Of Thought Campaign

One School Of Thought Campaign

Website designed for the One School Of Thought campaign. I am hugely appreciative of the talented bunch at Fresh Made Media who gave me the opportunity to be part of this project and actually take a lead role in the design under their internship programme. The branding was designed by the excellent kieran Hurson.

Ceramics Website Showcase

Ceramics Showcase Website

Concept for an online shop selling mainly ceramics. As with a small business with a limited stock I wanted to make the most of each piece of ceramic work. Hence the clean uncluttered design utilising large thumbnails of each item for sale, making the work the focal point of the site.

Hillside Nursery Centre

Hillside Nursery centre is a popular local garden centre / cafe. After browsing its current website I felt it didn't quite do the beautiful surroundings of the store justice, so for an exercise I decided to redesign the site using a much more nature related colour palette. Restructuring the content to be more easily viewable and designing in a possible online shop functionality.

Extinction Hour

A Project introducing key stage 3 children onto todays current problems of mass extinction, using illustration and motion graphics to tell the story in a way children could better relate to. The project was taken entirely from concept to completion as my final year project in University. Perhaps the most challenging aspect was producing the video, which required getting to grips with After Effects, recording and lip syncing the voice overs and creating all the illustrations in a limited time.
