In October 2008 Woodford Golf Club moved their web site to the Golf Glub Network. The text and images here relate to the previous version which I managed and hosted from 2004-2008.

In Woodford Green, London, lies the Woodford Golf Club. Built on the Drupal content management system the web site enables the club committee and secretary to update the content themselves. It also includes a substantial members only section not visible to the general public.

The screen shot on the right shows the home page.

The National Childbirth trust is a charity offering pre and post-natal support to parents. Many local branches had their own sites, this was one of them. Building the site on the Drupal Content Management system allowed me to deliver a site with high functionality at very low cost, and importantly one which the members could update themselves.

In 2006 the charity wisely decided to centralize it's web offerings, providing a space for each branch and tools to manage the content as part of it's main web site. As a result the custom site I built was closed down in early 2007.

I failed to keep a full sized screen shot of the site, so on the right is a copy of the combined header/footer graphic I designed. Loosely based on the figure of a reclined pregnant woman it also resembles the hills of Dundee seen from Fife, and their reflection in the Tay.

Technologies used: XHTML1 transitional, CSS2, Drupal (PHP).

Jonathan Clarkson is a design consultant with a wide portfolio including street furniture and garden structures. Because Jonathan himself is a designer he wanted to have big input in the design of the site. The result is a site with a visual style that is as much Jonathan's as mine.

The screen shot on the right shows the home page. Technologies used: XHTML1, CSS2, JavaScript, Flash, PHP.

Created for Nicholas Wade, Opprints is primarily a site of visual illusions but also details the many books which Nick has published. The screen shot on the right shows the gallery index page.

The gallery of illusions uses Adobe Flash to allow the images to scale, fitting the visitors browser window. It's built to degrade however, visitors which don't have Flash installed see a non-resizable image instead.

Uses XHTML1, CSS2, JavaScript, Flash, PHP.

This site itself is of course one of my creations. Currently running on Drupal, with a custom theme and a handful of modules.

The screenshot on the right shows the original version from 2003. It used XHTML1.0, CSS2 and PHP. You're looking at the current version which is built on Drupal with a long list of modules, including the following: CCK; Image; Imagecache; Marksmarty; Pathauto; Site menu; Update status and Views.

A university spin out company with some interesting technology. The web site used PHP to redirect visitors to a version of the site suited to their browser, allowing a consistent look in both old and modern browsers. The logo was supplied by XstalBio and the site designed around it. The site was redesigned in 2005, but sadly not by me.

Screenshot on the right shows a graphic I created for the site in Ray Dream Studio.

Technologies used: HTML4.01, JavaScript, CSS2, PHP.

Scotch Perspectives is a small society with around 100 members based around Scotch whisky and visual psychology. I run the web site. This site was started in 1999 and has been through several updates. It now runs on Drupal. The logo image was created with Ray Dream Studio.

The site is members only, and membership to the society is only by invite so there's not much to see unless you're a member!

Technologies used: Drupal (PHP), XHTML1.0, CSS2, Ray Dream Studio (3D graphics software).

It was in Richard Cogdell's lab that I studied for my PhD, so I was ideally suited to create this site. It has since been progressively absorbed into a later in-house design. As of late 2007 all that remains is some of the 3D rendered images I created and the 'Chime' presentation.

The original site would look quite dated now, as the screenshot on the right shows! It required a Javascript controlled interface for the Chime plugin (for interactive 3D views of the protein complexes studied by the lab), and the generation of many ray traced graphics of the protein molecules.

Technologies and software used: XHTML 1.0, CSS, JavaScript, Chime (browser plugin), 3D Ray tracing with POV-Ray and DINO.
