ITF: logo and event websites

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: Health related fitness

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.

Sarah Britten-Jones: Appropriation

Sarah Britten-Jones is a British visual artist with a background in ceramics. Some of her work involves the process of appropriation, where something is taken and changed very slightly in order to create a new piece with new meanings, so her website has been designed to look similar to the website of a large well-known global furniture store. The site is built in WordPress and acts as Sarah’s portfolio and her blog.
