Portfolio

  • NZMEBC

    This site was a basic site developed by me based off a template theme. It was quick to develop but I think very effective with a clean, simple design.

    Electric Unicorn is an online shop promoting fun and quirky designs. I was asked to get the story animation on the homepage working with a parallax scroll effect. I really enjoyed this as it was challenging and fun.

  • New Auck

    New Auck was a small blog idea by a lady who wanted to create a platform to express her recommendations to others. She had set up the site herself on a platform called SquareSpace, and wanted some tricky things added to the design which she wasn't able to do herself. I managed to do this which was challenging on such a restricting platform but also made me feel proud once it was complete.

  • Platform 4 Group

    I was to create a new website for Platform 4 Group (not yet live). Part of this was to combine 2 existing sites into one, and come up with a nice new design based off the older ones. I wanted to make this easy to use for the client to make changes, so everything in the design and development process is made with forethought and logic.

  • Datamaps

    Datamaps was a small site for a Geospacial company to promote their business. I wanted to give them a small, low-costing solution so they could have an online presence without paying through the roof for it.
