Martin Woollatt

Summary

Experience has been gained through freelancing and personal projects which have achieved recognition in 2 national magazines (PC Format & Computer Active). My main skill-base is centred around Dreamweaver & HTML/DHTML and the editing and testing thereof. To back this up there is some sound grounding with javascript and image manipulation and creation in primarily Painter & Fireworks. With 15 years of experience within a distribution & mailing environment, my logistical know-how may also come to the fore with the inherant organisational flair I obtained.

Stag & Hen Party Weekends

http://www.plankrider.plus.com/hotrox

The third of the 3 site series for Hotrocks Outdoor Pursuits Ltd of Boston. Launched February 2003.

As with Teambuild UK & Activities Away, clients supplied copy, photo images, and how they wanted the general feel and look of the site to be in it's [their] first incarnation[s]. With the basic template sorted, the build from there was relatively straighforward. Some further graphic production was required. All pages validate to HTML 4.01 Transitional standards, and the package included intial search engine submission.

Activities Away Adventure Holidays

This is the second of 3 sites for Hotrocks Outdoor Pursuits Ltd of Boston. The original deadline for this was extended, hence launch well into January 2003.

As with Teambuild UK, clients supplied copy, photo images, and how they wanted the general feel and look of the site to be in it's [their] first incarnation[s]. With the basic template sorted, the build from there was relatively straighforward. Some further graphic production was required.

Updates & add ons in pipeline as @ Aug 2003

Teambuild UK

http://www.teambuild-uk.com

Approached in late November 2002 to produce a series of sites for this company, two of which needed to be turned round quickly for New Year launches!

Clients supplied copy, photo images, and how they wanted the general feel and look of the site to be in it's [their] first incarnation[s]. My brief was to get the template sorted and build from there, producing any graphic required. Production of the home page graphic was the biggest challenge, and included an animated version which as advised would prove too 'heavy'. All pages validate to HTML 4.01 Transitional standards.

Updates & add ons June-Aug 2003

Old Woodhall Crafts

http://www.oldwoodhall.co.uk

Although a relatively small and straightforward site, this took the best part of 5 months from initial consultation to launch at the end of October 2002. The final layout and structure were my decisions with photo graphics and copy supplied by OWC.The site conforms to W3C HTML4.01 trans standards, a normal practice for me, and checks out on various Mac/PC-browser combinations.

Southwell Minster Choir Association

http://www.southwellminster-choirassociation.org.uk

The whole shooting match for what is clearly a straightforward site. The brief was open with a view to something more sophisticated at a later date subject to success rates.

English Sugar Beet Seed Co. Ltd

http://www.sugarbeetseed.com

Approached to produce a single page to act as an electric version of their advertising. Using print matter for reference and only logo's supplied in digital format for manipulation, this small project was quickly put together with the tools listed left.

Update July 2004.

Frames & Things, Bude Cornwall

http://www.framesandthings.co.uk

Although strictly speaking a re-build, this was effectively a site built from scratch. I have handled the whole shooting match from initial consultation through to uploading.

Original photo's were supplied by the client and manipulated by me mainly using Painter. Other graphics I produced in Fireworks.

The site itself was put together in Dreamweaver and tidied up by hand throughout. The copy was supplied by the client and then edited to fit by me. Client extremely pleased with results.

Link Car Rental Ltd

http://www.link-carrental.com

The success of version 1 encouraged this update. The copy is more or less the same, although with date critical information involved, it has also been edited for easier reading.
More graphical elements in v2, which as ever are produced with a combination of Fireworks and Painter.
Structure and feel are home grown by myself and executed with hand coded HTML and Dreamweaver.
This site is a little more dynamic than before and has been validated thoroughly to W3C standards and Bobby accessibility.

Continually updated.

Graham-Cameron Illustration

http://www.plankrider.plus.com/archive/mnh

Only four pages with lower spec options. The graphical and textual content was supplied by the client, with editing advice for layout issues and graphic manipulation by myself. The final page layout was all my own making with regular client proofing throughout.

Hosting was arranged through my sources, including a very 'interesting' transfer process.

The web design has now been taken on by other sources, so this is a personal record only of it's existance.

Suzi Woollatt Illustration

http://www.swill.co.uk/

V5.0.1 launched December 2002. The illustrations were all done by Suzi herself (unsurprisingly) whilst I took all the elements and implemented them with a subtle emphasis on DHTML. Updating and site management is all done by me :o)

Secret Spot

http://www.swellchaser.co.uk

A personal site which illustrates my life around surfing built using Dreamweaver. Maintained and edited by myself on a more than regular basis.

Graphical elements have been produced by myself and my better half Suz [www.swill.co.uk] which I have manipulated using Painter & Fireworks.
