The marketing manager of Parents and Friends of Holywell School asked for my expertise to help develop the pre themed Wordpress site set up by his domain company. I developed the logo and fine tuned the colours and styling of elements of this themed site.

I also developed the functionality to include a contact form, events calender and recent events blog posts as well as creating an instruction pdf to help him add events.

This was my first project and It's already been through plenty of different stages. It's a bespoke fixed width layout that has up-to-date css3 and HTML5 components that deliver an outstanding, content rich website with everything from ecommerce and ajax to ribbon banners and Photoshopped images.

Another work in progress. Currently undergoing a complete revamp. This is at an interim stage of development. Fluid layout with fixed vertical navigation. This will be magically transformed in to a content rich Wordpress-designed web site.

Case studies - C.A.Drillers

CADrillers, a local Whitstable drilling company, asked me to redesign their schedule of rates. An important sales and marketing brochure. The finished document is a four page PDF with a front page, two pages of rates and a terms and conditions page. I also created a headed paper template for their company letters as well as re-setting the schedule in Excel format for a customer.
