A selection of the design and development work I’ve done through the years.
Since I started Thunderbolt in 2000, it has grown into one of the leading independent videogames websites on the Web. We have about thirty volunteer staff writers from around the world and together we’ve written over three million words.
In September 2008, I rebuilt Thunderbolt‘s content management system (CMS) from scratch. Using this, our staff submit and edit articles, upload images, track which games other people are writing about, moderate comments and more.
Association of Independent Game Websites
The AIGW is an organisation that I co-founded in late 2009 which seeks to improve the standard of volunteer-run videogame websites. This second version of the website was launched in April 2010.
CountryEx was my final year dissertation project for university. It was an online stock trading game in which players trade in countries instead of companies. After launching in the spring of 2010, it was halted due to a lack of time to maintain its development.
As part of my role as the Web Editor at Impact, the University of Nottingham’s official magazine, I redesigned their website from scratch in April 2009.
