Design and Build a two-purpose site for one of Greece's oldest Football clubs.
Lailapas Football Club
We set this Greek Language site up by adapting the WordPress Twentytwelve theme.
The site has two main functions. It's public area provides team news, fixtures and results. The members area is for players only and provides tactical, fitness and dietary plans for each member of the squad.
The site design took inspiration from the club Manager's love of Arsenal FC.
Design and Build a magazine site catering for crew members involved in the entertainment industry
Stage and Screen Insider
The multi-author site is based around a heavily customised Wordpress installation. It uses custom posts/taxonomy for non-standard content (Blogs, Columns, Adverts and Jobs).
We built PHP forms for users to upload jobs and adverts without having access to the Wordpress dashboard.
We are currently working on a PHP-based secure section where members can post CV details.
Portfolio site for virtual agency.
The Farraday site incorporates a parallax effect between the background images and the overlaying content.
We am currently working on an PHP-based FTP front-end for their client area which allows users to upload images and assets.
The Client Area is a work in progress.

Build the mobile version of the EF site
English First for Mobile
Built with HTML5 and CSS3, the EF mobile site was targeted primarily at iPhone users.
The biggest task for this site was the Brochure form, which delivered content depending on the age range, work circumstances, nationality and personal preferences of the user.
A complete reskinning of the EF corporate site
The brief was to update the English First worldwide site without touching the html. We used sprites for every background image on the site, PNG for modern browsers with a GIF alternative for legacy browsers.
We experimented with Cufon and .NET font replacement techniques, both of which performed well for right to left fonts but experienced issues with Pacific rim faces and Arabic fonts.
Rebuild existing site as a content management system
The Being Company
The Being Company’s website was a static site which was badly coded and had no CMS facilities.
We oversaw the project from rebuilding the HTML and reworking the CSS to providing forms via PHP/mySQL.
Once the site had been rebuilt, the Blog and News sections were re-worked as Wordpress blogs so that the client could update info at will.
Build Avian’s home site.
The main challenge of this site was a sliding carousel with large PNG backgrounds and varied typography for the What we do section. We used jquery.pngFix.js to solve the background issue with Internet Explorer 6. The carousel was finished of with some basic DOM scripting to control the page indicators and the navigation buttons.
An additional challenge was to build the customised internal scroll bar in the What our clients say section.
Redevelop the original ZOPA site
Zopa is basically eBay for loans. Individuals with excellent credit ratings borrow money from other individual investors with ZOPA providing the legal and financial framework for the transactions to take place.
ZOPA was the biggest exercise We ever took in cross browser testing, with 37 browser/OS combinations to be satisfied. It also introduced me to font replacement, which at the time, was dominated by Flash. We went with sIFR.
Interestingly we pre-dated Wonga’s sliders by several years.
Demonstrate how Adobe had made is easier to deploy their flagship CS5 suite.
Give ’em 5
A simple microsite incorporating an accordion to keep the content above the fold. The incorporated video was overlaid on the main page utilising a shadowbox effect.
The Current Votes number continually updated as votes from a companion site, Gimme 5, were tallied by the PHP/mySQL back end.
Portfolio site for Emma Alcock, a traditional fine artist based in Chelsea.
Although showing it’s age now, Emma’s site was an interesting exercise in using CSS to create a layout centered on both the X and Y axes.
This site is one of the rare occasions where I both designed and coded the site from beginning to end.
I am currently working on a 2013 update. Please bear in mind this is a work in progress and only included here to show the difference in web approaches over a 7 year gap.
Provide animated solution to illustrate Acrobat’s security features.
Adobe Acrobat Security
My only contribution to this page is the animated lock box.
Created in After Effects, the box was realised by taking a series of Photoshop images and creating a 3D element within the program. Once this had been done the box was rotated in 3D space while the virtual camera moved away from it.
The power of After Effects is in it’s ability to add polish. In this case, motion blur as the cube rotated and then inverse kinetics applied to the flapping panel.
We met in the late 1980's when the World Wide Web was still a decade away.
Back then Eamon was an artworker employed in the design industry and Tony was a self employed Graphic designer.
As the world went went online our working relationship remained the same. Tony still comes up with the designs and Eamon still prepares them for publication.
The only thing that has changed is the medium.
