My name is Brian and I'm a developer / designer & occassional journalist.

With over 5 years experience, I've dealt with designers, developers, business and sportsmen to build modern websites and cutting edge designs. This site showcases some of my work. Enjoy!

  • DG Construction - Website

    DG Construction; an independent building/renovation company. The website had to be minimal, modern and responsive, with multiple display sections featuring all the various builds that had been undertaken previously. I used a parallax feature to display some of the best pictures of the work that the company had done. I also designed the logo, and advised on layout of site and colour scheme.

  • Good Eating Guide - Website & Publication

    Originally hired as print and design manager for this publication. I used the Adobe Suite in particalur Photoshop and Indesign to lay out this magazine, alongside QuarkXpress. Then I was employed to build a responsive website representing all 200+ restaurants that were featured in the guide. In order to achieve this I used multiple modals, saving space on the page while also presenting the information in a modern fashion.

  • The Yellow House - Website

    A bespoke, responsive website for this 10 bedroom BnB. The client was insistent on every room being featured with high-res images along with multiple shots of the exterior of the house. My job was to make sure these were all placed in a nice display, that there was variety in the way in which they were displayed and also that they didn't slow down the functionality of the site. In order to achieve all this, I first downsized and optimized (where possible) the photos, reducing file size. Next I had to come up with novel ways in which to display all these photos; I used carousels, modals and hover-over techniques and I'm happy with the end result.
