Freedom Fine Art

http://www.domingodirect.co.uk/

This site was originally a hand coded e-commerce site but has now been moved over to Magento. This enables me and the admin team to easily manage this site along with other ‘direct sites’ under a single admin and database. There have been a couple of third party add-on’s placed on this site along with some hand crafted code and template changes. JQuery has been added to the front page and the product pages to subtly improve the look and feel of the site. Also other static pages have been added.

PW Models

http://www.pwmodels.co.uk

PW Models was one of the first sites I created for a friend Paul Wells. This is a static website with no PHP code or database integration although all the pages were given the .php suffix to enable PHP code to be added later if required. Pauls site was designed from scratch as he had no corporate identity; I was solely responsible for the sites design. This site is marked for an upgrade to tear it away from the old table based to a more search engine friendly CSS based one.

skills used: Html, Dreamweaver
