This was one of my first projects, involving the creation of a static brochureware website for Competition Transmission Services, a small racing and rallysport gearbox building company.

Creation of an attractive and friendly online catalogue and information resource for Competition Transmission Services, a custom gearbox building company based in Hertfordshire.

In-line with the company's customer service-orientated approach, a key component in the site's design was providing an easy-to-navigate information resource with a friendly "voice" aimed towards encouraging first-time and casual visitors to contact the company and talk directly to an employee, rather than to simply throw facts, figures and sales patter at visitors through the website.

What's this then?

When I’m not trying to kill myself in the gym or in a swimming pool, or trying to take photos which usually look like they were shot during an earthquake, I tend to push pixels around webpages and - occasionally - posters, newspapers, magazines and other paper-based mediums. Sometimes, I even get paid to do it… ;o)

Apparently, I'm not-too-bad at putting together websites; that means that, once we've worked out what it is you want your website to do, and roughly how you want it to look, I take a content management system (usually Drupal), assemble and configure the various plug-ins needed to make your site do what you want it to, whip up the site's theme via some slicing and dicing in Potatoshop (that's Photoshop for normal people), test it, add in any content you have, and show you how to use the site in a one-to-one training session (well, that's roughly how these things work, but there's always some room for flexibility of course).

If you like what you see here and would like to have a chat, please get in touch.

This is just a small selection of my past work, and I must admit I've been pretty terrible at updating my portfolio with some of my more-recent work. So, while this page isn't necessarily the best or the brightest of my productions, I hope you'll be able to get an idea of my style and how I like to work.
