Featured Work

Wild Creations

web development, cms, wordpress

Cardiff-based design and fabrication company Wild Creations needed a new website that promoted their mission statement: "the wierd and wonderful realised".

The result of this project, undertaken in collaboration with a local graphic designer, is a bold and modern website for Wild Creations that puts their work centre stage.

I worked with the friendly folks at Clout to bring their rebrand of Conjura online. Conjura are data integration and customer analytics specialists with a global presence, and the website needed to reflect their primary focus: clarity.

Under the Skin of Endangered Animals

Under the Skin is the passion project of brothers Ed and James Harrison. Their print series reveals the anatomy of some of the world’s most iconic, yet endangered animals, while raising funds for charities working on the ground to support conservation and prevent population decline.

I teamed up with Haum again to bring their vibrant, modern redesign of the Lovemore website to life. Lovemore is a leading brand in the gluten-free produce industry and sell their products all around the world.

Chwarae Teg

I had the pleasure of working with Blue Stag again on the redesign of the Chwarae Teg website. I built a custom WordPress theme with multiple custom post types and a fully bespoke bilingual solution that allows the website to be viewed in English or Welsh.

Rosa de Jong is a freelance designer, art director and animator based in Amsterdam. Her experiments with creating tiny worlds turned into a beautiful series of miniature sculptures. I worked with Rosa to provide an online platform to showcase and sell her Micro Matter series.
