Rapid prototyper and MVP builder. I work with a range of platforms and tools, including Meteor.js, WordPress, Drupal, Jekyll and Middleman.

I can help with the following:

  • Information Architecture, taxonomy and metadata development
  • Web tech advisory for B2B enterprises, not-for-profits and start-ups
  • Product and project management

A selection of recent projects

Curatorial is a collaborative platform which encourages and enables users to engage with open data collections in different ways. Users can view collections and create their own annotated collections from within.

Curatorial 2.0 is a new and improved version of the Curatorial platform developed in Meteor.js and is currently in beta

This is a demo app for Curatorial to let users explore data collections and create their own using items from the British Library digital collections.

Fossbox Website relaunch - This website was a part of an overall brand relaunch for Fossbox, a specialist technology consultancy based in London.

This website refresh was part of the Fossbox relaunch in 2015 and the focus was on providing a clear introduction to Fossbox and the specialist services provided as well as showcasing past work and collaborations.

The site was built in Drupal with a custom, responsive theme.

Fossbox is a CIC working with non-profit and arts organisations and specialising in open source technology and co-design.

A launch page for the OSM Smart project so the focus was on introducing the project and providing a clear pathway for volunteers and users to get involved with the project as it develops.

OSM Smart is a collaborative, real-time mapping project currently being developed by Fossbox CIC and opensensors.io.

This is a fortnightly curated newsletter produced by Artefacto focusing on professional development and news resources for librarians and other information professionals.

The website has trialled different onboarding approaches and is built using Middleman.

Health Information for Libraries Online (HILO) - A responsive website developed to support the promotion and use of electronic resources for Health Libraries in London.

This website is primarily aimed at information professionals within the NHS and the wider health sector so the focus was on providing clear information pathways in a responsive way while providing backwards compatability with (much) older browsers.
