6th Northwood Scout Group
For over 10 years I have designed and produced the websites and provided branding and design work for the Scout Group. 4 designs have been launched in this time, all based around guidelines imposed by The Scout Association.
Since it’s creation in 2011, I have managed the OCLMO Archery brand and produced it’s website and supporting printed materials. The Club has been on hiatus in recent years with plans to reawaken it soon.
Most of my projects are managed through CIGAM media Limited. Registered in 2016 and receiving a complete rebrand at the time, it reuses the trading name I had been using for a number of years.

My personal site has gone through many versions. Originally created to house my writing and charity fundraising micro-sites, it has evolved to included a blog, walking guides and my portfolio.
After the success of the site produced for the 6th Northwood, the linked Explorer Scout Unit requested a site encompassing an event calendars and a blog; but once again restricted by brand guidelines set in place by The Scout Association. The site has since been withdrawn.
A startup that failed after a year, I was the lead designer and front end developer for the project creating the logo, branding and two different versions of the application – a light theme and a dark theme.
I was asked to take on brand design and development work for the Kent University Conservative Association for two years. The design was limited by guidelines set in place by both The Conservative Party and Kent Union which led to some interesting compromises.
Keynes Student Committee
I was asked to provide print-ready artwork to support fundraising events from the Keynes College Student Committee when the in house designer was unavailable to offer their services.
Ruislip Eastcote Northwood Scouts
I worked in partnership with SOTIC to produce a website for the Scout District after the success of my two previous Scouting projects. I still provide branding advice and site maintenance for the District.
Union Reform Group
After seeing my previous work for University organisations, a newly established student pressure group asked me to create a brand and logo that played on the existing brand of the Union they were wishing to reform.
Another startup that failed to get going. There are plans to reawaken this project for which I designed the brand and interface.
A final project for the university was to create a campaign brand, print materials and website for a student running for a sabbatical office position on the Union. There were strict election rules that it had to bide by and had to include a blog.
Initially the Technology Advisor, I later became the in house designer and developer for this magazine site that published political articles by members of the nationwide student populous.
When Soph and I embarked on a project to find all 270 labyrinths hidden around the London Underground network, I created a site that could document each of our finds.
After the success of the first hackathon in Canterbury, the founder asked me to provide design work and to assist in the running of the second, third and fourth events before the project ceased.
Clear Books plc
I was Lead Front End Developer for the company for over two and a half years growing the front-end and UX team in partnership with the Lead Designer overseeing the production of two marketing sites and a completely new style guide for the application.
I was the developer on the project to build a new website for CTO-for-hire Douglas Squirrel. He requested that the pages be static which led to some compromises on how to maintain a standard header and footer across the many, and growing, pages.
A new business venture as part of CIGAM media Limited, this was the first time that I would create an online shop for selling our hand made plaques of popular walking routes.
CIGAM media was approached to produce a simple site for a hotel in 8 days as a new company was taking over. We were successful in this task and improvements are contracted to be made in the near future.
After the success of the Shillingford Bridge project, the hotel company asked us to produce new, matching sites for the other three in the chain. The Pinewood site is the first and is currently in testing.
