Tutti Frutti Clothing

This is an online shop I created for a friend who sews her own range of children's clothes.

The shop runs on the open source e-commerce software OpenCart, and the design is a simple customisation of one of the standard templates. I have also added Instagram integration, and some custom shipping cost modules.

This is a website I developed for The Game Tutor. He did the design work, and I coded the HTML and CSS. Then I implemented a CMS for him using Drupal as a back-end.

Super 11

This is a microsite I developed for the launch of a new board game called Super 11.

It uses the artwork from the box design, an embedded YouTube video, and an AJAX contact form with a PHP back end.

This temporary site has now been updated with the full verson (that I didn't design).

About Me

Welcome to my little website. Here I am slowly compiling a collection of projects I have created. Some fix problems I have encountered, others I just enjoyed coding! I am currently studying for a BSc in "Computing and IT with Applied Mathematics" at the Open University, so hopefully these projects will get more complex as my learning continues.

My day job consists of working on the help desk for a software company who create recipe software. It is a small company, so I get a chance to get my teeth into a variety of projects on top of my core role. In my spare time, I create websites for friends, administer a couple of Linux servers, and generally tinker about with computers. The rest of my time I spend either studying for my degree, or looking after my young, growing family :-)
