I've been playing the demos of
Bayonetta & Dante's Inferno.
I've been following Bayonetta
with relish recently and while
not blown away by the demo,
it was the Devil May Cry clone
I had been expecting, which
isn't a bad thing really. Dante's Inferno
I was impressed with, even though it's
God of War in hell, but it seems to
have a really strong narrative and if it's anywhere near as good as Dead Space, the developers last game, then I shall be in for a treat!

I loved the first
Uncharted, it is one of
the best games I've ever
played. The story of Nathan "Nate"
Drake is more Indiana Jones than
Indiana Jones and I couldn't wait
for the sequel. Now that I've played it through, it doesn't disappoint. This game improves on it's predecessor in every department. Amazing game, if you own a PS3, you need to play this game.

I'm a freelance web designer based in London and I can design your website, develop standards compliant XHTML and CSS for cross-browser compatibility and ensure that it all works perfectly and looks beautiful.
I started my career in web design & development in the late 90s and later went on to study this at Brunel University in West London. After I graduated I started working at Dennis Publishing where I work on their portfolio of sites including Maxim, PCPRO, ITPRO, Bizarre and Auto Express among others.
My role at Dennis also includes advertising jobs for a diverse set of clients such as EA, Ford, Seat, O2 and Symantec to name a few. The work produced is diverse and the majority of it is custom built for clients.
I'm really passionate about combining stunning design and great code, many people say the two are completely separate disciplines but I disagree, I believe it's possible to push the boundaries of both!
Click on the two tabs "Past" and "Future" to find my portfolio and how to contact me.
I joined Dennis at the start of 2008 as a Web Designer and work on their entire online portfolio, including their Flash magazine publications (Ceros)
One of my first jobs at Dennis was to redesign and rework the front end for Monkey Magazine's site. The editorial team gave me free reign from a design point of view and the old markup & CSS were completed replaced. Monkey was incorporated into Kontraband mid 2009.
Homepage | Sub Index Page | Article Page
In 2009 I was tasked with redesigning the Maxim website, I came up with some initial treatments, but sadly the magazine was closed as a print publication and its relaunch downgraded to a colour scheme change as the site presently is.
Design 1 | Design 2
Expert Reviews was launched by Dennis towards the end of 2009. I was responsible for implementing the front end, which included using Smarty and all the CSS for the site.
EVO was given an updated design with new markup and CSS, I did the majority of the CSS for the project.
During my time at Dennis Publishing as well as working on our own brands, I have worked on advertising campaigns for various companies.
Listed below is a small section of these companies. Hover over their logos to see some examples of my work.
For Dennis I had to design & build a "Data Capture" system where users could enter their details in return for free whitepapers, case studies etc.
To coincide in with the launch of Microsoft's new bing search engine, I was tasked with creating a series of banners to promote the launch and ITPRO's interviews of bing's staff. They were so impressed with the result they rolled out my style of banners across ITPRO and PCPRO.
omgwtf images is a custom built site that allows users to upload their pictures, tag them and share them with everyone. The site uses PHP and MySQL extensively.
One of my first sites, this was a early testing ground for my PHP & CSS skills.
It also contains original content such as videos and reviews.
An initial treatment for my site redesign which is a darker more traditional Web 2.0 flat page design.
In university, I was set an assignment of creating a website that can search and retrieve data from a MySQL database.
I studied many disciplines including web design, 3D graphics, database theory & implementation, video editing & marketing among others. My final year work was part of the "Made in Brunel" exhibition.
Prices vary depending on the scope of the work involved, I am flexible to the needs of the client. Because of increasing assignments I ask my clients to describe demands and details in their first email. This will allow me to plan my jobs the best way possible and service my clients faster. In advance, thanks.
From static websites that don't need to be updated often to HTML emails I can design and build a website that can maximise your brand's potential and offer your clients a unique experience. These are the cheapest and quickest to create.
From custom built websites using a combination of PHP & MySQL databases to off the shelf packages such as Drupal & Wordpress I can set up blogs, websites that you can manage and edit, e-commerce solutions and tailor these to your needs. Depending on the complexity of your requirements these can cost more and take more time.
Maximise the exposure of your brand by fully leveraging the potential of social networking sites such as Facebook, mySpace, Twitter, RSS feeds and that's just for starters.
You can offer the best service or product in the world but if no one can find it, then what you offer is meaningless. Search Engine Optimisation is a very important part of a web platform and I design and build websites with this in mind, so when Google looks at your site it will take notice.
My rates are flexible to the needs of your project and are very competitive, you won't find better value for money elsewhere.
