Some of my favourite projects of the last few years

Linn

Development of a new brand home for Linn, a high-end brand of Hi-Fi equipment. The website, while effectively just a large brochure site, offered a number of interesting challenges including building out a variety of content manageable product customisation modules, persisting content across regional variants of the same website and integrating with a variety of Linn's existing APIs to handle things like event and demo bookings.

Jottr

A plain text, real-time, web-based notes app which I built to refresh myself on some tech I felt like I hadn't used in a while. Jottr runs on a Node, Express, MongoDB back end (with Passport.js authentication) which is all exposed via a REST API and then consumed by a React front end.

Edinburgh Fringe "Pick n Mix"

As Edinburgh Fringe's lead creative agency, we worked on a number of interesting projects with them over the years. One that I was particularly heavily involved in was Pick n Mix, a YouTube-style show discovery platform with live chat, reactions, playlists and more. I lead on this project which included speccing, UX design and technical oversight.

STV News

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work for the best part of a year conceiving an updated UX for one of Scotland's busiest websites, and then seeing it through to fruition with the build of a brand new WordPress website and 2 hybrid mobile apps.

Elmnt.info

I've always been a big armchair chemistry geek (if that's even a thing) so I created this project back in 2015 as a bit of fun. Recently I breathed some new life into it with a React re-write and spruced up interface. The periodic table stores a lot of data locally, but also pulls things like images live from the Wikipedia API.

Passport to Jura

This was an interesting one - a 3D mobile-web experience which was used in airports around the world to "transport" users to the island of Jura, home to the popular whisky brand. This was my first proper foray into Three.js, which I'd love to revisit more thoroughly at some point.

QuizBear

One of my most successful personal projects to date, QuizBear was a challenging daily quiz served through Facebook Messenger. During his life QuizBear sent out over 100,000 questions and had many hundreds of active daily users but unfortunately, due to Facebook API changes which I didn't keep up with, he is now deceased...

Website Launch Checklist

A simple web app I created to track progress when launching a new web project, based on a list I had compiled myself over time. The site automatically tracks usage (at browser level only) to ensure progress persists across sessions.

Talisman Design

I was approached to develop the website for a brand new digital design agency in Glasgow - Talisman. This was a fun (and challenging) one due to the numerous weird, wonderful and intricate animations and interactions present throughout the site.
