McCoy's Project Sky 20:20 | 2011
Project Sky was complete rebuild updating the functionality of the already popular two for one curry promotion Ruby Murray, which I also developed. The new web app has proved even more popular than the last. User participation and also number of hits on the site have increased at least two fold. The main changes for this version were to convert from Google's static maps to dynamic maps with the use of dynamic pins showing curry houses when users enter their town or postcode. I managed to get the user journey improved increasing the users experience. This project required me to also update the CMS (see other projects) I had build to cope with the Geoencoding aspect of Google Maps.PHP, MySQL, XHTML, Usability Analysis, Some UX analysis, CSS, Google Maps API, Geoencoding See the Website
McCoy's Ruby Murray 20:20 | 2010
The Ruby Murray project was produced for a McCoy's promotion in which you could get 2 for 1 on a curry at participating curry houses. The idea is that customer will want to know which curry houses are participating. Following the steps the customers narrow down on their area and are provided with a map and details of the curry house chosen.PHP, MySQL, Database Management, XHTML, Limited Usability Analysis, CSS, Google Maps API See the Website
James 20:20 | 2010
This project was a complete rebuild of the James (band) website. The website needed to give the band much more control over the content on the site. The website allows users to: add comments, gig pictures, view videos, read blogs, view future and past gigs and much more. The website website is powered by a CMS that allows the band members to create the content. It also uses the Smarty templating system.PHP, MySQL, XHTML, CSS, (in house) CMS, Smarty Templating
McVitie's Penguin 20:20 | 2010
I have worked on the Penguin website regularly, adding new pages and amending the site for the monthly updates McVitie's ask for. This has included competitions, jQuery carousels, webcam feeds and jQuery photo galleries. I have also been included in brainstorming ideas for future updates to the website.PHP, MySQL, jQuery, XHTML, CSS, Brainstorming See the Website
McCoy's Ruby Murray CMS 20:20 | 2010
The Ruby Murray CMS that I built is used in conjunction with the Ruby Murray promotion website. The Ruby Murray CMS allows users from a data company to add, edit, publish and unpublish curry houses partaking in the Ruby Murray promotion. It also allows the user to search for curry houses on a number of criteria. The system is simple yet powerful.PHP, MySQL, CMS, Database Manangment, XHTML, CSS, Design
McVitie's Penguin Jokes CMS 20:20 | 2010
The Penguin Jokes CMS was built of the back of the Ruby Murray CMS and uses much of the same technology. The CMS allows McVitie's Penguin employees to review jokes sent in via a webpage, which I also created. The user can edit, search and change the status of the data.PHP, MySQL, CMS, Database Manangment, XHTML, CSS, jQuery, Design
Beermat Challenge EvansFinch | 2009
Beermat Challenge was a very interesting project for the University of the West of England (UWE). The idea was to produce something that students would connect with and add their business ideas to. The site was aimed at all students and alumi of the university. As a team we worked on the concept and how exactly we would engage with the audience. The concept evolved, into a stage for ideas that alumi could and others could vote up or down. The top ideas would win prizes. I worked on the database and anti-cheating logic as well as creating a script that tweeted the top ideas out to twitter, adding to the powerful social media technique we used that made this project such a success.Php, Social Media, Concept, MySQL, Database Design, HTML, CSS See the Website
Health 4 Work EvansFinch | 2009
Health Focus Referals EvansFinch | 2009
Health focus referals was a rebuild of a website for a client but also the prototype of a new application to be used by GPs in the NHS. The application that I worked primarily on was to be used by GPs to refer patients to local non-NHS clinics and focus groups. The application needed to help and aid the GPs through a process of forms recording data for the clinics etc. We also had to create permissions system for different types of users that would be loggin into the system. As with many projects at this agency I worked closely with the designer there Mariana Mota, we had a lot of success working through projects. I worked on a lot jquery functionality and logic in this project.PHP, jQuery, Concept, Database Design, HTML, CSS
Whitehall Garden Center Store | 2008
This website used both a RMS (Retail Management System) and an eCommerce platform called NitroSell. My job was to get to work with the templates updating the HTML and CSS including the layout to produce a custom template for the garden centre. At this stage of my career I was still developing my skills. This was a great job to teach myself what I needed to know. After changing some of the basic templates I was then asked re-design the whole website. My manager was contacted by many other companies asking how we designed our site. I was also involved in the overall running of the site.XHTML, CSS, CMS, PHOTOSHOP, DESIGN See the Website
