As well as my paying clients (and my family, and everything else!) I also have some projects on the go. These serve as some fun for me, but are also great development tools, and how I’ve learned a lot of what I put into practice for clients on a daily basis.
This is a textbook trading website aimed at UK students. I came up with the concept and Graeme McIver built the site with the finishing touches you can see. We got the site on BBC Click! and on www.pocket-lint.co.uk. It’s an ongoing project to which I have a real attachment.

This is a UK family travel site showcasing days out and attractions. I first built this site in Blogger (which I’ve used for several years), but have now moved it to self-hosted using WordPress. It has a YouTube Channel, and is on Google+. In September 2014 it won the MAD Best Family Travel Blog Award.
