Weaving the web

Folio Introduction

Making use of technology in ways not always planned, in a continually evolving environment is my experience of Web design since the ‘90s. It is an exercise in exhilaration and frustration in equal measure.

Royal Academy Monet exhihibition painting

Notes

The static site I designed for the Monet in the 20th century exhibition at the Royal Academy turned out to be extremely popular, causing server overload and crashing on a number of occasions, a tribute to Monet’s ability rather than my own.

Simply in Season

Notes

Interesting project a website was needed to collect and distribute user-contributed recipes for a cookbook featuring seasonal food. Custom built it in PHP with a MySQL database, there was a steep learning curve and a satisfying result.

Notes

At the risk of creating an ouroboros, I have added this website. It is built on top of Symphony, a content management system that uses XSLT to enable complete control of the display and organization of content.
