Warwick Words - Festival of Literature and Spoken Word

Warwick Words was ultimately built as a CMS site and ended up looking like this:

Along with the website, I also designed the programme and all the related bits 'n' bobs.

Catherine Thompson.me

Catherine required a very simple site to promote her coaching - with the ability to edit the content herself:

Leamington FC website

The new Leamington FC website is now well underway - and should be a whole lot easier to manage once up and running:

Leamington FC website

Having recently been 'volunteered' to be Webmaster for the official Leamington FC website - I have found a moment to give it a few tweaks until there's an opportunity to develop a new website that's a bit more future-proof than the current one which has been well looked after - but contains quite a few bits that have been bolted on to handle all the data and interests associated with the club. Firstly, here is what it looked like at the end of season 08-09 (with my Champions banner in place):

New banner, new photos, a few code tweaks (on going) and now a bit easier on the eye. Plus, I've got a better handle on the mass of content on the site that all needs tidying up and transferring to the new site - when that's done! Watch this space.

The Kingsley School

Here's a visual for The Kingsley School website - showing first their existing site - (un)fortunately the screen grab failed to 'grab' the ridiculous flying text and images that zoom around in that big white space - making you feel quite giddy:

Taking the existing branding and working it into a nice and simple site that will include a nice and simple to use CMS so that everyone involved with the school can easily keep the site up-to-date with new text and images:

Corporate Business Finance

Still a work in progress - but nearing completion and I reckon a much improved look. Previous version:

Currently looking like this:

The Minack

As a big fan of the Minack theatre in Cornwall - I have always been a bit disappointed by their website which, for me, fails to showcase fully what an amazing experience a visit to the Minack is, on top of the stunning scenery in which it is built. Apparently though, the website has had many favourable comments from it's users.

With this in mind I have kept a lot of the look and feel of the existing site (to keep current 'happy' customers er... happy) - and just given it a more 'professional' polish: I'll add a few more page samples soon too.

ACS Building & Maintenance

ACS needed some information updating on their site - and with a little extra time tweaking the code and graphics the site went from this:

to this:

Warwick Words

Warwick Words - currently being looked at. Existing site shown first (interesting use of Gill Sans throughout):

SLDdesign's 1st proposal - great pic of Lord Leycester Hospital for the benefit of users with nice big screens! But not shown here as you'll have to wait until the site is published.

Jago Cottage

Jago Cottage existing website - not the best advert for the venue:

Redesigned by SLDdesign, streamlined, simplified and much better (IMHO!):

Heart of England Language School

Here is a sample of the Heart of England Language School's previous site:

Which has undergone a simple makeover - re-using most of the existing images & code to help keeps cost down:

Fat Birds Café

Yum, yum. Fat Birds Café. Having worked on a few bits and pieces for this excellent café - (branding already existed, unfortunately!) - Currently putting together a simple website: Hoping that this one drags a bit and more meetings need to be done over Coffee & Cake!

Wave Designs

This was the first one to go live (apart from my own sites) - enjoyed working on this mostly due to the fab images by Peter Adderley:

A long time coming

This was one of the first sites that i did and due to clients other commitments it has taken a long time to get finished. With a rather challenging (for me!) drop down menu of a different (more fiddly) sort to avoid any overlapping of content:

When I get another spare minute

I'll be adding some recent samples up here as soon as I get chance.
I'll just put this here for now as it's off one of my other blogs.
