My Portfolio.

Below is just a handful of the projects I have worked on, feel free to follow the links and explore the full live website.

If you don't see an example of a skill you need, get in touch and I can send you more examples of work I have done.

Paperplay

Role: Development, Part Design, User Experience, Project Management
Technologies: CodeIgniter, Bootstrap 3, HTML, PHP, CSS, JQuery
Company: Paperplay

Paperplay required a custom ecommerce solution that would allow customers to browse, select, customise and purchase printed wedding stationery online. The website had to be user friendly and highly customisable as each design was different.

I chose CodeIgniter as the PHP framework to develop it with, this meant that I was not restricted by any CMS and learnt much about coding an application like this from the ground up.

Since completing the project I do ongoing maintenance as well as adding new features to the website. 

Electus Recruitment

Role: Development, Part Design, User Experience, Project Management
Technologies: Drupal, Bootstrap 3, HTML, PHP, CSS, JQuery
Company: ThinkTank

The Electus Recruitment website is probably the best looking recruitment site. The client came to us with an idea for a website that integrated with a third party recruitment management application. After working with the client I realised that the third party application was outdated and not serving their needs.

The result is a fully fledged recruitment management application and website in one.

The project development time was 3 weeks.

National Research Foundation

Role: Development, Part Design, Project Management
Technologies: Drupal, Responsive, HTML, PHP, CSS, JQuery
Company: ThinkTank

The National Research Foundation of South Africa required a website with a challenge of scale, scalablity and content organisation. The website has an epic level content organisation, that truly demonstrates Drupal abilities in content filtering. The website went live with 3035 individual content nodes, with plans for expansion.

The project development time was 6 weeks.

Five Past Five Design

Role: Development, Design, Project Management.
Technologies: Drupal, Bootstrap 3, Responsive, HTML, PHP, CSS, JQuery
Company: Freelance

Five Past Five Design is an industrial design company specializing in lasercut wooden products. I was given free rein on this project, so I decide the focus should be on the products and not the website itself. I achieved this by going with an extremely minimalist design in black and white with focus on the images. The website also needed a responsive design as it was expected that a large portion of the visitors would be on mobile devices.

The website needed to be live before Design Indaba of 2014. Website went from design to develpment and live in one week.

Makhato Bush Lodge

Role: Development, Design, Project Management, Copy Writing, Photography
Technologies: Drupal, Bootstrap 3, Responsive, HTML, PHP, CSS, JQuery
Company: Freelance

Makhato Bush Lodge is a private lodge situated in Sondela Nature Reserve. The website was intended for advertising as well as a means for customers to make bookings. Once again a focus was placed on imagery.

This project tested a full range of my skills, as I wrote the copy, did the designs, developed it as well as took many of the photographs.
