Magento Theme Design & Development – Oh mon Dieu!

I recently finished a web design and development project for a company selling Magento themes.

Wow! a project without a client, how enjoyable it was to work on my own design ideas without having to worry about the client and their business (designers and developers out there will know what i’m talking about!). I designed and developed the Magento site from scratch which started with some research, sketches, wire-frame and then a complete PSD. I included some bespoke customisation with the theme, a product slider, which is easily manageable in the admin area of Magento.

My part in the project was completed within 2 weeks, which included a day working on-site in London.

It was fantastic working with the team at Keystone and i received some great design direction from the company directors. My duties included front-end development of XHTML and CSS as well as some graphic design.

Design for Luxury Holiday Apartment

Another property website! this time is for a Luxury Holiday Apartment out in sunny Spain. The owners wanted a site to direct their advertising to, something modern and vibrant – just like their apartment. So, thats what i designed for them and they were over the moon! I spent a lot of time working through prototypes in photoshop, thinking about how to communicate to the end user and show them exactly what the holiday apartment is all about. The design is clean and modern with carefully selected imagery, colour palette and typography.

Other Work

I spent a period of time working for Lutterworth based web design and SEO company Creare Design. My time spent working at Creare was very rewarding, not only did i enjoy my time at Creare very much and worked with some fantastic designers, i also learned a lot of new design and development skills.

During this time, i worked on a variety of designs and developments, ranging from Magento E-Commerce sites, WordPress, static Sites and performing on-page SEO on a couple of sites.

Unfortunately i cannot showcase any of my designs/developments during my time at creare, due to copyright issues.

The concept was simple, to create a site to showcase the range of properties on offer.
Buying a property abroad is an exciting thing to do, we wanted the site to reflect this with a vibrant and contemporary design rather than just another list of properties.
Site vision and Overall Design
Designed and re-designed on paper first. This enabled me to put the user at the forefront and make the site structure easy to use. Feedback from the client at this stage was crucial to the project and to ensure they were 100% happy.
Content is King
The whole site was build with the properties at the forefront. The user need to be able to see what properties are available at super fast speed.
