MMUstBee

A university project I undertook within a team to create an online magazine for the Information and Communications department of Manchester Metropolitan University

About

MMUstBee is an online magazine aimed at both current and prospective students of Manchester Metropolitan University's Information and Communiations department as well as their parents. The website is intended to give students access to information relating to courses and life as a student within the department with the intention of inreasing the number of applicants.

Approach

For this project we intended to create something in the vein of BuzzFeed for students within the department. As the only developer working on the project my focus was on the technical side of the project including the information architecture, technical specifications and the development itself.

Get Chucked

A full website project created for Get Chucked, an american inspired restaurant where I have worked as Sous-Chef for two years.

About

Get Chucked is an american style restaurant based in Manchester founded by street food traders 'Dirty Dogs' and events organisers Guerrilla Eats. Starting as a 6 week pop-up they had so much success that they decided to settle down and become a permanent fixture within the town of Urmston.

Approach

Initially Get Chucked simply wanted their menu and telephone number available online. Over time I continued to develop the website into something more functional and hopefully more professional. As one of my first web projects there are many things I'm not happy about with the original Get Chucked website. For instance, I developed this website before learning how to use responsive design and therefor the website serves a different version to phones by detecting models. I am currently in the process of designing a new website to coincide with the launch of their new restaurant

New Mix Concrete

A rebrand and prototyping project for one of the UK's largest barrow mix concrete services which is currently being developed by Yell.

About

New mix is the UK's original barrow mix concrete supplier. They have over 30 years of experience within their industry and currently find most of their work through word of mouth. This rebranding and prototyping project entailed the creation of a new logo as well as a full website design and working prototype.

Approach

For this project the intention was to give the New Mix brand a refresh. Their old website was developed in the early 00's and is fairly grey. I oversaw the creation of a new version of their logo where we took the original barrow man and recreated it in a modern style. For the website prototype I took inspiration from paralax design styles and made the brand colours more prominent.
