Bed & Breakfast Berkshire is the website for a successful, family run Bed & Breakfast in Berkshire. I was asked to design and build a simple brochure site, with decent SEO, that could be self managed via a CMS.
I chose WordPress as its out of the box features matched the projects requirements. I even used the standard twentyten theme too as the client loved the minimalist elegance of it.
Integra CLO :: WordPress Site
Integra Community Living Options provides residential support and rehabilitation for men and women with enduring mental health issues and complex needs between the ages of 18 to 64. I was commissioned by them to build a new website to replace their rather dated original site.
Built using WordPress, the site closely follows their branding guidelines to produce a clean, simple interface enabling visitors to find exactly what they want, easily. The site was setup to be instantly scalable and self managed by their various staff.
I was asked to be a technical consultant by Ibiza Delivers, an exciting Ibiza-based start-up, that aims to be the Balerics answer to Ocardo. They wanted a robust eCommerce store with real-time functionality to enable a multitude of advanced requirements including Multiple suppliers with perishable stock, Warehouse packaging, Member based services and Lorry distribution management.
With my significant eCommerce experience, having technically directed the likes of All Saints, Reiss and Gants eCommerce stores, they came to me seeking professional advise on the best approach to take.
I setup a Lamp testing server running Magento, researched and installed the suitable extensions and created a test site in order for them to assess the proposed route of action albeit with some bespoke advanced functionality missing.
Having proved the concept to them in was then responsible for the selection of a suitable company to facilitate the remaining advanced, bespoke customisations and host the service with watertight SLA.
I am retained on an ad hoc basis and continue to offer technical and creative advise.
Gracelands Yard :: BuddyPress Site
Gracelands yard is basically a collective of alternative therapists and practitioners working together to offer a vast array of health therapies.
I was asked to build a site that complemented their easy going surroundings and philosophy whilst conveying a wealth of information about the services and classes on offer. I used a multisite instance of wordpress and added the powerful buddypress plugin.
Each practioner had their own sub domain microsite within the gracelands umbrella site enabling them to control and administer their own content on the site whilst contributing as editors to the main site. Each sub domain also had the ability to render as a bespoke standalone site too. Groups and forums were also requested although they haven’t seen much use yet!

Another V-UI (flash site) for a leading London-based makeup artist, Miranda Arneil. A photo-rich portfolio site showcasing some of her work.
OS-Digital :: WordPress Site
I have just finished a new wordpress-based website for Outsorcery, a leading London-based creative studio. Its a portfolio-based site with a crisp, modern design. Features included dynamic content dependant on page keywords and an interactive flash based portfolio section. It was built as a child theme of my own D1g1tal theme.
Digital :: Social Network in BuddyPress
Have just finished a social network-based site for my company, Digital, that’s based on the BuddyPress platform albeit with a lot of advanced, bespoke functionality.
Lots of clever features including voice communication, groups, forums, chatrooms (public and private), member-only content and the ability to build your own sites. Check it out.

Rolling Rebel :: Digital & Print Identity
Commissioned by Peter Ker’s new film location company, Rolling Rebel to create an identity for them. Their new venture is currently working on productions featuring the likes of Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt. My work involved detailed research of the perceived and desired brand, followed by the creation of a logo suitable style guidelines. I then created a full range of both digital and print-based corporate stationary. I also purchased the domain, www.rollingrebel.com, setup a new webserver featuring a holding page and full email accounts.
