About me

I’ve had nearly twenty five years experience designing and developing multimedia content for all sorts of platforms, delivery methods and clients. I’ve made hundreds of CDROMs with Director, countless interactive applications with Flash and have spent the last eleven years making websites with HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL &c.

I’m also a dab-hand with Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Audition, can handle a camera, know a thing or two about video formats and am also fluent in sound recording, sound effects and music (composition, recording and editing). Oh, and I can also do the odd voiceover too, if required - ask me about my Hugh Laurie impression. Actually, don't, The Wife says it doesn't sound anything like him.

In my spare time I like to ponder the nature of universe and to make (and eat) biscuits. Well, when I say 'make biscuits', I really mean 'help The Wife to make biscuits' by doing the initial testing (of the final baked versions) and the washing up of the befouled implements.

I am also a serial parenthesiser (no, really) and my penchant for parenthesis is second only to my desire to hyphenate - I just can't-help-it.

Sharon Bolton website

Client: Transworld Publishers

Agency: Youniverse Digital Ltd

SharonBolton_ca410cac01b8.jpg

This little site for author Sharon Bolton was designed by Alex at Youniverse and features an unusual interface where the main sections are displayed on the scrolling home page, but are 'greyed-out' until the user clicks to see them.

Also featured is a rather nifty perspective-distorting scroll effect in the top banner.

As usual in this scenario, my role was to make the design concept work using HTML, CSS and Javascript. Which I did. The site also uses PHP, MySQL and a bespoke CMS.
