Client: Chestnut Tree House for Designation (2009)
Details: Designation had been working with St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree House Hospices for a number of years running their main websites. The team at Chestnut Tree House came up with a new campaign idea to help raise much needed funds with the help of children either in or connected to the hospice. These Challengers have set themselves the task of promoting the work of the hospice and they are an example to us all. The supporting website (www.chestnutschallenge.org.uk) was put together to help the hospice gain new supporters willing to take the challenge and to allow existing supporters to leave messages of support for the children. I worked for the marketing team at Chestnut Tree House to produce, design and build this site and the supporting campaign site (Take The Challenge, Pass It On).
“John always replies promptly to requests, is good at solving problems and coming up with solutions. He explains things clearly and completes work on time and within budget – a pleasure to work with!”
Janet Parsons, Communications Manager, St Barnabas House and Chestnut Tree House Hospices
Client: Performance Unlimited for Designation (2004-2010)
Details: Now onto my 6th marketing contact at Performance Unlimited (a company that is continually evolving) I’ve been involved in a number of programmes and projects with them over the years. At the peak I managed a programme of over 10 projects covering both online and offline delivery of the brand we’d just created for them. These included a new CMS website, domain name strategy, pay-per-click (PPC) marketing and newsletter.
“John was a fabulous supplier and provided much more than consultancy and advice, he was a true partner and guided the business through rebranding and marketing with precision, great follow through, solid delivery on project plans and the result we were looking for. Along with all of that he is a professional and thoroughly decent chap and I’d certainly recommend his work.”

Client: Cubeez for Designation (2001-2002)
Details: Cubeez is a kids TV show still seen occasionally in the UK (it used to be on GMTV) and elsewhere worldwide. When the first series launched in 2001 the production team wanted a state-of-the-art interactive website to support the show and continue the excitement of the characters into the online world. I worked as project manager, overseeing an 8 person team on this £130K project. Utilising SQL Server (with all text and audio coming out of the database to enable multiple languages), ASP and Flash (with Generator at the time) it was a cutting-edge site and introduced all sorts of user interactivity that wouldn’t become mainstream over the years that followed (and some that still haven’t).
Client: Tony Briscoe (2009)
Details: Tony is one of London’s top food photographers with an eye for detail that mirrors his palette. Having successfully produced his previous site he came back to me when he wanted a website refresh to go with his new brand. Working closely with him to produce exactly what he wanted we kept it clean and simple so the photography would do the talking.
“John is a great guy to work with. He’s extremely efficient, creative and his personable nature means he has the skills required to explain the detail and technical aspects in a clear and structured way. I’ve had no hesitation in recommending him to others who in turn are delighted with the results he has produced.”
Tony Briscoe, Photographer
