Mariah or Messiah

Christmas quiz

Mariah or Messiah was built as part of a hackathon with the aim of creating a fun (and rather silly!) Christmas card. Whilst generating publicity for Neverbland, it also helped raise money for the Hackney Winter Night Shelter charity. The quiz makes heavy use of the Greensock library to facilitate all the animtions.

Shell Eco Marathon

Educational Games

A multilingual tablet-based app containing 8 touch based mini games for an Imagination event, the Shell Eco Marathon Asia.

Ford Storypods on Mac OSX

Ford Storypods

Photographic Souvenirs

An app with two purposes. Firstly, showcasing six informational videos about Ford's innovation programme. At the same time it also communicated via an API with a camera above taking photos from a birds eye perspective. The app then allowed the user to send this to themselves via a QR service or email. Extensive animation work went into the application, especially on the home screen, in order to visually attract visitors to the activation.

Inside Rolls Royce

Exploratory Experience

An exploratory touch screen experience as part of an instalment at the Saatchi gallery in London by Imagination. Offering a smooth, animated, Kiosk-like experience, the application allowed the user to explore Rolls Royce's latest technical innovations and process through content unlocked by touch gestures. I helped define the design, UX and animatics alongside Art Director Aaron Daniels.

About Me

Crafting captivating digital experiences with passion

Passionate about technology and design from an early age, I've built websites, applications and digital experiences using front end tools in areas including music, automotive and fashion and art. I'm fascinated by emergent technologies and methodologies, such as responsive design, preprocessors, CSS3 animations and in-browser design. I'm familiar with a range of Content Management Systems, image editing software, as well as Digital Audio Workstations from my days as a recording engineer. In my time away from the computer I enjoy quoting films, playing with any musical gadget I can get my hands on and keeping my two cats off my keyboard.
