Whilst working for BuzzMyVideos, a leading MCN, founded by two YouTube executives I was required to completely rebuild their public facing website from scratch. The new site is WordPress based and in addition involved setting up a git repository and a staging and production site. A badly written premium theme was purchased (always good to allow a dev to view the code before purchasing :)) so in addition to setting up the theme I had to rewrite a mass of css and js to make it perform correctly. Custom post types for jobs were introduced and the legacy business logic was removed.
WPMotion :: Touch, Swipe, Gesture WordPress
I have just completed WPMotion a premium wordpress theme and potentially a web service too. This site is currently running in it. Its designed with portfolio and presentation sites in mind and allows you to navigate with click, touch, swipe and even gesture via leap motion. It utilises Reveal JS and supports all standard wordpress functionality (posts, pages, attachments, categories, tags, search, comments, galleries etc). Check it out at www.wpmotion.net.
Nash Bond :: Leading Estate Agents WordPress Site
Nash Bond is one of Londons leading estate and retail agents covering areas like Chelsea and Oxford Street. I was contracted by Underscore to convert their Photoshop designs into a wordpress theme. The site included custom post types and carousels and had to utilise some of Underscores existing wordpress plugins. The backend was greatly enhanced by the use of Advanced Custom fields.
DEFRA :: WordPress Site
Seven is a Digital Customer Engagement Agency who make, manage and monetise print, video, digital, social and mobile content for clients like Sainsburys and Virgin.
I was recruited by them to create a WordPress-based site for DEFRA, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to replace their existing print-based magazine, Landscape.
Built using WordPress 3.1 the image heavy site was designed from the ground up to mimic the incumbent magazine.
The theme was built as a child-theme of twentyten designed to run in a multi site environment. Due to this multisite setup and it being hosted on government servers, a prerequisite of site was that the theme would have its core functionality embeded, minimizing its reliance on external plugins.
The vast array of bespoke functionality included:
Enabling multiple issue creation
Colour coded sections
Bespoke CMS configurations
Mass of photography-based functionality
*Please note the site is currently only available to DEFRA’s employees.
