    Kewmunity is a Pokémon Go community that meets each month at Kew Gardens to hunt for shiny Pokémon, defeat raid bosses, trade Pokémon and socialise. As a member of Kewmunity it was a pleasure to be asked to design the website.

    I write articles about upcoming events and design promotional artwork. I decided to use Wordpress for this project in order to become familiar with the platform and enhance my skills.

    I am currently working on a new member feature where players will be able to connect and compare scores. Coming soon!

  • Project Details

    To create an online portfolio of work and showcase my skills. This is an ongoing project that hopefully reflects the evolution of web design.

    The latest version on my portfolio is fully responsive. It has been designed to adapt to the device viewport and optimise the delivery of content across mobile, tablet and desktop.

    I have endeavoured to combine clean and crisp design while maintaining my personality as you would expect any website to do for the brand it represents. This website has had many designs throughout the years (and will probably have many more in the years to come). Like myself, my portfolio is always evolving and adapting.

    Rugger Kids

  • Project Details

    Rugger Kids is a tag rugby club for children in Staines. When the new owners purchased the company in 2013, the website was little more than a landing page for contact details. The brief was very open, they wanted a whole new look, I was asked to create something special to represent them online, something interesting and fun that would drive more business.

    I chose to apply a fresh and brightly coloured theme to mirror the club's kit and the outdoor element of the business. I designed a collection of colourful bouncing rugby balls for the header buttons and revamped the company logo in my own style. I also created a character art of Leo the Lion, the lovable company mascot.

    I built pages to outline the services provided by the club and to introduce the company and the coaches. To handle customer enquiries, I built a page of FAQs and set-up a PHP contact form to direct email to the coaches. In order to drive more business and improve Rugger Kids' online presence I registered the company with Google and some local directories, I also set-up social media pages and shared with individuals in the local area.
