the fruits of my labours…
I was lead designer at play.com for over two years and was responsible for all front-end design, from overall information architecture and interface design through to coding of all HTML and CSS and production of graphics, flash banners, etc.
I also designed the logo and created print ads, print collateral, business cards and stationery. It was fun. Play.com is now the largest online retailer of DVDs in Europe, which is nice.
Since going freelance I have built several small websites, which mostly use standards-compliant XHTML and CSS:
site for an art gallery in Cambridge
site for contemporary art gallery
redesign of site for outward-bound company
site for former employer
For completeness’ sake:
I built about ten thousand flash and regular banners while at play.com. Here are a few favourites:
I have no illusions about my animation prowess, but nevertheless I have made a few flash cartoons which can be found in the animation section.
Just a few examples…
