Jo and Lucy from Bar 35 approached me to design and develop a new website, the aim of which was to advertise all of their live music events whilst making the website ‘different’ to anything that has been seen before.
Bar 35 specialises in live music events, supporting local and national bands across multiple genres. Their venue is the perfect for live music, with a relaxed atmosphere, accompanied by quirky design with flourishes around the interior.
I immediately suggested using their flourishes as the border/frame around the window of the website. I also suggested using hand drawn sketches to illustrate the presence of live music and fun as opposed to the boring black colour backgrounds’ or pictures that you typically see with most websites.
This project was awesome as it allowed me to develop and design a website that you don’t typically see.>> Visit Website

Michelle from Shell Belle Couture requested a bespoke wholesale ecommerce website in addition to a bespoke ecommerce consumer website.
There were several requirements that both websites had to meet, these included: a design which portrayed the style and feel of luxury purchases, product browsing which offered cross-sales of related products, stock management, automated emailing if carts have been abandoned, order and payment management.
As a experienced UK, Cornwall based Magento developer, when combined with the Amazon like functionality requested, it was an obvious choice to use Magento’s Ecommerce system. Given the bespoke features requested, using Magento’s module system made it very easy to extend the current core module system, especially the ability to customise and change the functionality within the Admin system which was also requested.

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.
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 :)

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.
