Well, three years is a record for me. It's a running joke in the industry that designers and developers rarely get the chance to site down and work on new versions of their own sites but, even so, three years is a bit much!
In reality, I was spurred on to create a new design for my site by the fact that Google is now calling out sites that don't work on mobile platforms. I've been doing lots of jobs where the client has asked for the site to be responsive, so at the very least I had to make my site match up.
Work wise, I've been pretty much locked into developing new versions of older sites, with the bulk of last year being spent on the Andorra Resorts info site and the Sauze Online shops. Both of them are responsive, work extremely well on mobiles/pads and do funky stuff with rewritten urls.
Drop me a line if you like how they work and would like something similar producing.
Some new sites to publicise:
SCM Turbo - Automotive parts site, designed by Clayton Creative, developed by me. Items of note: AJAX parts search, Bootstrap scaling layout for multiple platforms, custom SEO-friendly urls functionality
BOPA - community organisation website, designed and developed by me. Items of note: Bootstrap scaling layout, custom SEO-friendly urls functionality.
So it turns out the hardest thing about keeping a blog site up to date is finding the time to do updates...
I've been fairly busy these last couple of years, mainly working on existing sites making changes and keeping up with the ever changing SEO landscape. I do have some new sites to link to so here goes:
Pro Audio Systems - professional sound engineering equipment. This is the aforementioned Magento based site, design by Outside the Box; template production, Magento wrangling and additional php/mysql development by me.
More updates soon (hopefully)!
I'm so bad at updating this blog! No new links to show at the moment because I've mainly been focusing on consulting, SEO optimisation and ongoing developments to existing sites.
I've also been doing some work on a Magento based e-commerce site that I should hopefully be able to post a link to soon.
Hey folks. Again, many months between updates due to some quite large projects:
Leighmans.com - A very large, very complex site developed with SEO at the forefront. Template design, production and all development by me!
PapaKata - designed by Mark Lucas at Grain, all development (including the funky dhtml wrap/unwrap stuff on the floorplans section but excluding all Flash and 360° tours) by me.
