A selection of my work...

The Ancient Samurai

The Ancient Samurai is an independent movie review website, dedicated to outstanding movies. The idea came about after numerous conversations with colleagues and friends about movies, where everyone would come away with a list of films they had yet to see.

Being an enthuasist of cinema, I felt that having all of my favourites in one place would create a library of recommended viewing for anyone who had interest. The end result is a selection of the more memorable recent releases in cinema and on bluray, The Ancient Samurai's personal list of the greatest movies of all time, and a light being shone on some of the forgotten gems that lovers of movies may have yet to see...

On the technical side, this side encompasses a lot of web technologies working in unison. It uses the latest HTML 5 standard, some CSS 3 wizardry and a Javascript/jQuery 'accordian' style menu. The back-end is built using MySQL, and PHP provides the server-side scripting.

The site is FULLY responsive, adapting to devices from mobiles through to tablets and desktops up to 1080p.

DNA Design Studios

An award-winning college project, DNA Design Studios represents a week of hard work by 5 talented individuals, project managed by David Keogh.

Our goals of creating a new and eye-catching design, coupled with in-page content tabbing, and delivering the site on-time were achieved without glitch. Of the 4 submissions delivered, this was the outright winner.

Many thanks to my four colleagues for their help - Garreth Galligan, Ronan Fortune, Derek O'Donnell and Andrzei Kencler.

Minor Earth Major Sky

A 2 week college project, with the first week used to create a 50+ page project management plan, outlining everything the site would do and contain. The second week was for construction.

This site uses a fixed-width profile, with numerous image galleries included with the aid of jQuery/Javascript.

The design is subtle, using the tricky darkened background with some softened fonts and colours.

Motorcycle Nights - (work in progress...)

A motorbike sales and repair shop located on Dublin's southside, the aim of this site was to provide the customer with an attractive site showcasing the premises facilities and stock.

The customer required a modern looking and feeling site, that provided users that may be broken down at the side of the road easy access to their services. Hence, this site works just as well on mobile phones as it does on tablets or desktops.
