Freelance Web Designer


I'm Sam, a Freelance Web Designer & Developer who has been making websites for 20 years.

Based in Sussex I make websites and provide digital services for small businesses and individuals.

Custom WordPress or static (no cms) sites that respond to the devices they are viewed on. Always thinking about performance, accessibility and security. Using Amazon Web Services for hosting and content delivery to keep things speedy.

Alexa Skills for Amazon Echo

Troubleshoot and repair broken or hacked sites (whether it's based on WordPress or not)

I'm a nice friendly guy always happy to answer your questions.

When working on a project I always see it as "working with" rather than "working for". I think about your needs, not mine :)

Imperial War Museum
Under the direction of creative agency NewAngle the application was designed and developed as part of a new exhibition for the Imperial War Museum about family life in London during the Second World War.

It is currently running on three large touchscreens as part a permanent exhibition in the museum.
Smart Commerce Cafe
Touchscreen installed in the visitors cafe at O2 Head Office. The site was also the first thing a user would see if they connected to the O2 Cafe wifi.

The aim of the project was to demonstrate technology used in stores and on coaches creating a intranet type network delivering offline content to an immediate audience.

Working for hummel who are based on Denmark I worked closely with the art director to design and build a campaign site for a new training shoe launched that summer.

From the initial brief myself and hummel brainstormed ideas for the campaign. I then put together wireframes and designs. When the design stage was finalised, I built the site, edited and colour corrected videos.

Created Flash elements, produced a demonstration video and wrapped it all up in a PHP CMS for the client to use to maintain the site themselves.

Anne Frank - Digital Edition for iPad and nook
Involved throughout the project, I delivered concepts, designs, 3D, textures, icons, video and all things visual.
With access to such a rich collection of content, including the diary itself. It was a great opportunity to work on something so important.

Using After Effects and Cinema4D I created videos to visualise how the cameras and lighting should be used and to define the timings of the animations.

The clips were then used to communicate to the stakeholders how the app would look and function. The development team would also use for reference when building the app in Unity3D.
