We have just re-designed another music festival website - this time for Purbeck Chamber Music Festival. The PCMF website carries information about concerts, performers and venues, and is another custom WordPress development.
Here's a nice positive post to kick off the year. One of my minor woes recently has been the refusal of my Win 7 PC and my ancient Wacom graphics tablet to hook up. Days were spent fiddling with drivers and serial cable adapters until I finally gave up, thinking that to get those nice […]
We have just completed a redesign of the Purbeck Arts Weeks website. The brief was to make the site more dynamic, reflecting the colourful and exciting nature of the festival itself, as well as presenting information in a clean and more usable format.

Here's a quick demo movie showing a technique called 'Camera Projection'. The technique creates a seemingly 3D scene using a 2D photo. Camera Projection works by using a light in an After Effects composition to shine through an image layer, projecting the pixels in the image onto a 3D surface. You can then animate a camera […]

We were asked by one of our clients to produce an image showing how things could be if essential technology was missing. The graphic needed to fit in with existing imagery used on the website. Here's our take on the brief...
I have been playing with a new WordPress theme builder called Ultimatum. Starting with a pretty neglected personal site of mine, I tweaked away for a while getting the hang of the framework, and I'm just about happy with the results now. Showcasing my Digital Fine Art Prints, the new design is responsive and features […]
I was thinking it was about time I mentioned a great tool I used recently - I used it to create the HTML header animation on this website, replacing a Flash version showing a steam train chugging away under a lovely blue sky.... ahhh. Not being sure whether I could achieve the same effect as […]
