The Old Vicarage Day Nursery Website

Category: Design, Web Design October 15th, 2012

This is a website I have built for a day nursery based in Warrington. The design of the site was done by Graphic Designer Jonathan brooks and I built the site around the design. The website utilises WordPress to allow the nursery to log in and update the site and has a blog which allows them to update parents with the latest news from the nursery.

The website also features private gallery pages which the parents will need to log in to keeping the site as secure as possible which is important for a nursery website. It is built using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and PHP.

The Gig Etiquette

Category: Design, Web Design June 20th, 2012

The Gig Etiquette is a website I have designed and built to experiment with responsive web design techniques. It is a tongue in cheek look at how people can act at gigs and how annoying and tedious these people are.


I go to a lot of gigs and find myself getting increasingly annoyed by people who don’t understand how to act in public. Maybe one day the world will look upon the gig etiquette as a site that changed the world and made it a better place to go to gigs. Or maybe these people will carry on being complete jerks while we pray that the next gig we go to is not ruined by them,


I also used the opportunity to experiment with responsiveness and fluid layouts for future work. To view the site please visit:

Manchester Music Venues Website

Category: Design, Music, Web Design January 21st, 2012

Manchester Music Venues is a website I have built as a guide to small venues across Manchester. When I first moved to Manchester in 2010 I had no idea which venues were the best and even where any of them were. Having been living here for two years now and been to plenty of gigs I have created this site as a guide to small music venues across Manchester.

The site is built using HTML 5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP and WordPress. The information was written by myself and a fellow gig go’er and photos taken by myself.

Ride a Wave Website Update 2011

Category: Design, Web Design June 23rd, 2011

I have updated my personal website (Ride a Wave) making some huge improvements. The main changes are an extended home page, jquery image galleries/sliders and completely cleaned up code. I made a lot of smaller cool changes to make it look more professional incorporating a lot of CSS3 and using @fontface.

*Update: This version of the site has since been updated to this funky looking site you’re looking at now. The site mentioned in this post can be viewed at

This is the full site as it was in 2011, the world of web design changes very quickly.
