Design, re-brand & implementation
AM Visualisation / Old King's Club

Creation of a responsive and dynamic website with accompanying branding that effectively portrayed the history and ethos of the club. The site needed to allow for easy contributions from ‘activity managers’ to ensure effective engagement. Working directly for the Chairman of the club, the site developed through continuous experimentation and consultation. View website

Website creation from supplied design
AM Visualisation / Macheen

Creation of a responsive web presence for a US based start-up. Page designs and branding were created by a marketing agency and it was then the responsibility to implement these designs into a successful web presence. Using a WordPress back-end with a customised theme, the site was created to the client’s specification. A number of major design changes during the implementation made this a particularly challenging project.

Website creation from supplied design
AM Visualisation / Tweak Marketing

A new website to reflect the modernity and dynamic nature of their business. They employed a team of Graphic Designers who created the page layouts, imagery and branding. This was a particularly challenging project as the graphic designers had very little knowledge of web design. Considerable effort was required to implement their specific designs and promote compromise in order to deliver the WordPress based website.

Product branding
AM Visualisation / The Juice Smith

Project to develop a logo and product labeling for a new business start-up providing cold pressed juices. With difficulty obtaining design direction from the client, the project proceeded through experimentation, presentation to the client and feedback directed proceeding to next stage.

Website conversion to WordPress
AM Visualisation / Le Namaste

Conversion from a static to a CMS based website to enable client updates without the need of assistance from a developer. The site needed to be replicated to ensure that the functionality and look and feel was seamless to the previous system. Once live, an SEO programme wasundertaken to ensure that the site adhered to SEO best practice and focus was given to enhancing the social media presence of the business.

Major changes to the visuals and functionality have been deployed recently as a result of work that I have undertaken using heat mapping tools and cognitive analysis.

Intranet system using the SharePoint platform
Russell-Cooke Solicitors

Replacement of previous intranet based on an overly complex and dated HTML/ASP coded system. Using a combination of ‘out of the box’ functionality alongside customised elements that were required for specific business requirements. I worked closely with a Sharepoint contractor to deliver the complex project involving a large number of stakeholders alongside a training programme for over 300 employees.

Website redevelopment
Russell-Cooke Solicitors

Key member of the project team enlisted to completely redevelop the existing web presence of a Top-100 law firm with a complex and innovative approach to advertising legal services online. The web development work was contracted to FrontMedia, a web design agency based in Essex. The project became increasingly complex due to the number of stakeholders and changes to the design. Alongside the head of Marketing, we were the main liaison between the business and the agency.
