The previous ITF event websites were mis-matched and didn't offer the brand continuity or functionality needed by the organisations. Working through Andrew Whiteman of Open Globe Marketing I evolved the logo so each organisation had a clear but connected identity, and designed and developed 2 new websites in WordPress CMS which allowed them full control over their content. They can now easily upload and manage their own event listings (with location map and EventBrite connectivity) which get ordered and listed automatically to keep the homepage and event list up-to-date.
IDASS care about helping people get fit for life. It's about healthy eating and targeted exercise. The main IDASS website promotes their range of health and fitness related products, but they also have a WordPress blog where industry experts chip in with tips for a healthier life. The existing blog was supposed to mirror the look and feel of the main site, but it was falling short in a number of areas. IDASS needed a quick solution and turned to me to optimise their WordPress installation for their needs and add a few extras such as image slider and social networking links. I also added plugins to help manage their site for areas such as SEO and database backups.
Abbotsley Country Homes is an exclusive development in 6 acres of delightful Cambridgeshire countryside with 20 plots all destined for lovely wooden lodges.

Architectural FX design innovative and creative LED based lighting solutions. They approached me to update their website to include 2011 products and revised information, as well as to start to address some little annoyances in the Joomla CMS system. I provided them with a mix of web editing (content updating) and development (where changes were needed in the Joomla templates).
DAV is an independent project and programme management company. In late 2010 DAV decided the time was right for a new skin for their Eddie CMS website, as well as a new WordPress blog, as part of a rationisation exercise to help communicate their competitive advantages.
Touchpoint is the appropriate name for communication from Designation, focussed on the monthly e-shot supported by a blog where subscribers can post their feedback. The e-shot is on edition 25 as I write this, meaning it's been going out on time every month for over 2 years, which is a remarkable achievement for a company this size.
When a client (Mantix) was taken over by the huge entity that is Atkins (becoming their Management Consultancy division) I was lucky enough to be able to continue on the account managing their website. I’ve been involved with their site over ten years now and I recently (Sept 09) made the 4th evolution of their website live. This new site incorporates numerous MooTools scripts to add dynamism to their content.

I've worked with the team at Nationwide People for over 10 years producing and supporting their public website and private intranet applications for their recruitment services.

The site is a CMS with is managed for the client as they are far too busy looking after the dozens of filtered prospects that contact them through the site every month (each one potentially a six figure sale).
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.
