Web Usability (2001-2002)

These pages are the result of a 5 month project investigating what makes a web page usable, and thus effective. Members of staff in all departments of the University of Winchester (formerly King Alfred's College/University College Winchester) were questioned as to the use that they would possibly make of webpage design (within teaching, research, and assessment). Usability and information structure were deemed more important than aesthetics, although this was still a consideration. Designed primarily for…

Visual Image Course (1999-2002)

I decided to make a basic site available to the students on the Visual Image Course that I teach at King Alfred's College, Winchester. The site was to cover internet resources, a more general bibliography, duplicate the material available in a handout, and provide example exam answers for those who rarely decided to attend revision sessions!

Bookwells/P&G Wells (2005, 2008)

P&G Wells is a beautiful bookshop nestled in the streets of Winchester. The brief was to design a simple, static site encompassing the six different businesses affiliated with the site. Time was short, so the initial design was produced quickly. Halfway through development of the site, I knew I'd got the job in Manchester, so passed the site over with instructions as to how to keep it updated, providing training as appropriate. The colouring was…

Winchester Holistics (since 2006)

After discussions and research, I designed and structured a friendly small business website. We wanted to keep the site simple as Tina had no desire to update it, and I couldn't guarantee being available when the site needed updating. I studied at other 'holistic practitioner' sites so that I could recommend to Tina the kind of content that would be worthwhile, and also took on board the ideas she already had for what it would…
