Sarah from Cabin Safety Update was looking for a modern and clean website design to display her newsletters, all of which are available to view online through a base subscription system. The site easily manageable through the simple WordPress system and training process. The system is backed up with a secure online payment system.
I went for a pure white background but with a quirky stroke line going down the page (to represent a plane travelling through the skies).
As with everything I do, it’s simple, clear and looks great on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.>> Visit Website
Max Marshall was looking for a new website to replace his existing Wix site which wasn’t performing as anticipated. I designed and built a mobile-friendly, multi-page website, enhancing the user experience with simple yet quirky navigation.
I developed the look and feel of the site to be big and bold, playing with elements that I have always loved to play with such a quirky abstract shapes. Despite having quirky geometric shapes, the website is still very manageable using WordPress, allowing Max to upload new images and edit content on the site.
As with all of my projects, I also undertake search engine optimisation as well as creating a bespoke backend using WordPress, enabling the client to edit their site and add products in real time.

Because Tom has been pleased with my work and having just taken over the Revolution restaurant, he approached me to produce some new menu designs as well as revamping the website with a new temporary page, until a new complete site is ready.
Tom decided that he would like the menu to be a DIY list whereby you tick against the ingredients you would like in the burger or hot dog. This process ultimately speeds up the waiting time between customers and the staff when ordering, which is great news for everyone.
Visit the temporary Revolution website to see the new menus.
Having just taken on Complete Kitchens in Holsworthy, Helen approached me to tweak their current branding as well redesigning their website to be more clean and professional. I took their brief and made all of the changes they needed to make this site exactly how they wanted it.
The site is unrecognisable from the original website, and the result is a much better user experience thus improving the bounce rate overall which will convert to sales. The user experience has also been designed taking in consideration, elderly people when browsing the website, which is the majority of their customer base.

Jane from The Look Out in Cornwall were looking for some 3D Visualisations to visual the position and the surrounding environment of the Hut.
Having been provided the architectural drawings and measurements, meant I was able to produce the 3D models very quickly. Which as a result, allowed me to focus more of my time on producing the 3D visualisations as realistic as possible.
It’s been a while since I tackled a nice juicy 3D project, so it was great to work on something that included a lot of nature to it.
Update: Currently under appeal – outcome TBA.>> Visit Website
Here are a collection of recently rendered CGI visualisations for Gecko Head Gear in Cornwall, UK.
It’s been a while since I tackled CGI simulations, so it was great to work on some water simulations. At first, I had it setup so that the physics would fire the water to the back of the helmet however, it soon became apparent that controlling the simulation was not going to be easy. In the end, I had a series of wind forces on each side of the helmet to stop the water from bouncing and exploding soo much.
Despite this, I bloody loved doing it! Go check it out at the website, as it looks even better there: geckoheadgear.com
Sign Vision, in Sidmouth, were looking for a 3D Vehicle Wrap Graphic to be printed for the Sidmouth Garden Centre in Devon. The 3D design had to be eye-catching whilst also sending out a powerful message to promote Sidmouth Garden Centres products.
After some early drawings it was obvious I was going in the right direction. From here, I gradually started modeling trees, hedges, plants and different particle systems to achieve realistic looking grass. Finally, implementing the lighting rig to bring everything to life. The design worked out better than expected really impressed with the end result :)

Project: 3D Design for Sidmouth Garden Centre
Here is a Commercial 3D Visualisation of La Bocca restaurant created for NineDesign in North Cornwall. The intent behind this design was to visually show how the bespoke interior designs could look to the La Bocca owners.
Every aspect of this interior design has been modelled from scratch including the textures (bump, specular, diffuse and displacement maps) as well as a custom lighting rig to achieve a realistic 3d Visualisation. On completion a RenderingFarm was used to render several stills at a high quality resolution.>> Visit Website
I was approached by Tourist Information Centre to integrate a 3rd party bookings system into their existing system, as a part of the website’s revamp, whilst still allowing staff at Bude TIC to continue adding/modifying new pages to the website without interfering with the booking system.
Using the 3rd Party API documentation, I set about creating a bespoke WordPress plugin to interact with the booking data from their system, using PHP as the programming language. This allowed me to develop a page showing which of the accommodations in the system were available to book, for both online and telephone/offline bookings. After a booking has been selected, the data is then passed back up to their system with the parameters arrival date, departure date and many others for them to process the booking. All this is done seamlessly between Bude TIC and the 3rd Party company. I then created a bespoke availability calendar using the data from the 3rd Party system to make it easier for the pupil when searching for a booking.
The main issue with this project was understanding how WordPress would retrieve its data from the 3rd party system when viewing an individual accommodation. The solution involved mapping accommodation entities in the 3rd party system, to the accommodations posts created in WordPress. This in turn allows accommodations to be created in the booking system, enabling staff at Bude TIC to link it to an accommodation post within WordPress.
Whilst developing the plugin, I made sure all programming standards and practices as set out by WordPress were used. This ensures any future updates to the core of WordPress does not affect the website.
For all your cornwall software development needs, get in touch by telephone or drop me a line to start discussing.
Dean created a gallery and online shop for me to showcase and sell my artwork. It looks great and works really well for me as I can easily update the content myself at the same time as having a bespoke design. He has always been very friendly and quick to make tweaks and resolve any problems. I would recommend Dean’s services and will continue to work with him in the future
