Design, build, draw, play…

Aoife Mannix is a poet who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She started writing many poems about it and a project evolved called One Stage at a Time. It’s a multi-media performance piece. It’s funded by The Arts Council and supported by Maggie’s centres and Apples & Snakes.

Unthinkable responsive site

I was asked to build Unthinkable Consulting's website as part of their new brand offering. Designed by Paul Finn of Fitzroy & Finn, I took the desktop designs and interpreted these from a mobile-first perspective and built a responsive Wordpress theme.

RSC Create

I worked with RSC and the Arts Council to design and build a website for their joint project RSC Create

RSC Dream16

Taking existing campaign designs, I designed and built a website for RSC's touring production of Midsummer Night's Dream. This was an extensive and large site which was highly customised.

ShiftMS web redesign consult

I was brought in to work with this charity and their core team to create pattern libraries and to mentor staff on working on a digital proposition from scratch plus help recruit a front-end developer to work with the team.

Lambeth Communications

I designed and built another Wordpress theme for Lambeth Communications; the communications PR consultancy service based at Lambeth Council

Penguin: The Chiappas

The Chiappa Sisters required a website and Penguin asked me to work with their pre-existing branding guidelines.

Penguin Readarama

I built a responsive website for Penguin's Readarama, a project to encourage users to read a book a week from Penguin's vast stock. The structure is a simple fluid grid with a few behavioural breakpoints. The design starting point was a pre-existing illustration by Isobel Knowles for Impress a Penguin.

ENO Mini Operas

I was approached by the English National Opera's learning department Baylis, about designing and building a very interesting project in their search for new operatic talent. It was to be a worldwide search in the form of three competitions. Each one would determine the content for the next, a bit like a game of consequences. The first competition was for script writing, the 10 winners' scripts would be the basis of the second competition, the soundtrack competition. The ten composer finalists' work would be the basis of the final competition: the film making.

ROH Ninette de Valois

The Royal Opera House asked me to rebuild a project that had faltered and was thus under a tight schedule. It used a lot of jQuery styling. The previous developer had started to build a content management system from scratch. I realised that this could be fitted over a Wordpress framework. There were several obstacles to this build and these were mostly how to make this project work well for the Lowry Museum's touchscreen displays which ran on Internet Explorer. There were several changes that were made for this particular set up as well as providing a more comprehensive jQuery hover experience for anyone looking at the site outside of the museum online.
