This is a very small site created for a private hire driver in Edinburgh.

We photographed his car and removed the background in Gimp, as well as changing the registration and private hire numbers. We created the Edinburgh skyline and buttons from scratch in Inkscape.

We wrote the copy for this site with search engine optimisation in mind, and used a combination of PHP and javascript to create a user-friendly booking form which posts directly to the owner's email address.

Later we designed business cards to match the website, and added a custom built scrolling links script for the resources page using a combination of Mootools and DHTML.

For this website the client supplied all the content and asked for a design with a colourful butterfly theme. In addition to designing her logo and making her an XHTML / CSS template based on this idea, we've also included a 'send to a friend' pop-up page, Google maps and a Facebook Like button.

We were later asked to create some graphic elements to depict situations and concepts related to counselling and phsycotherapy, and transactional analysis in particular. These come together as a collection of images for the Chrysallis Counselling and Psychotherapy website.

Animated Menu

This site was made for Faraway Place, a newly set-up Christian charity which aims to help teenage orphans in the Ukraine to successfully make the transition into adulthood.

The logo was designed from scratch using a combination of Inkscape and Gimp, and is based around their existing merchandise which includes skeleton keys and maps of the Ukraine on necklaces. This is used in combination with a rotating banner and an animated menu to make up the top portion of each page.

This site has twelve pages which include a standard contact form, a pop-up page for signing up for news and an embedded Youtube video, as well as three seperate payment areas with Paypal "donate" buttons for one-off payments, and a "subscribe" button for ongoing contributions.

It's most notable feature is an updateable "brick wall" graphic which can be added to as more contributions are made towards the building of their new home. Each brick displays the name of the person who paid for it, and can be added, edited and deleted through a user-friendly admin section built with PHP and MySQL
