website design

I've been using a combination of Photoshop, Illustrator and more recently Omnigraffle to design web sites since 1996. Some of the more recent work examples are included here.


LRB

I've worked with the LRB since 2003. This latest incarnation of the web site features full access to 30 years' worth of writing for subscribers, and an enhanced search facility using SOLR. I'd also like to thank Phil Gyford for building the CSS framework and prototyping many of the key pages on the site.

The Fostering Network

The fostering network wanted to develop a new site that was clean, informal and avoided the clichés of blocky web design. I worked with them to create a 'hand-drawn' feel and introduce a magazine-style layout that would make their content more accessible to members and other visitors.

Unltd

Kids Company put on this exhibition at the Tate Modern in 200. The website supported the exhibition, whilst also giving artists and visitors a space to discuss the work.

Viewsflow

Viewsflow approached me to help define their feature list and user experience. I carried out a scoping exercise before developing a full set of high-resolution wireframes and an interaction prototype.

What they say

@jason_pontin via twitter: While I prefer @nybooks, the London Review of Books has the most modern and social site of all the literary journals... LRB.co.uk is really well done. The design is elegant, functional, simple.

Rick Poynor in Design Week: Best of all, though, is the London Review of Books site. The central text column is framed by two discreet rules and the typography is so well balanced that even long paragraphs are negotiable...The LRB archive, with more than 12 000 pieces, is superbly searchable, and the site delicately reinforces the poise and ethos of the printed magazine.
