In March 2010 I was contracted out to the ESB by Arekibo to build the esbi.ie site in the ESB head office in Lower Fitzwilliam St, Dublin 2. After this 1 month project was complete I went back to Arekibo but was requested to return to the ESB and work as part of their in-house web team in August of that year.
My involvement with this site was HTML/CSS cut up and wordpress integration. I received psds from the designer and built from there. When the site was built and the designer was happy with the output I carried out Wordpress training with the client. I supported the client during the content input period.
The site was shortlisted for the Golden Spider award for the Best Travel & Tourism Website 2010.
This is a wordpress based site. My involvement was in integrating and manipulating this cut up to work with the Wordpress CMS. Particular elements of note include jquery for the slider being populated by the extracting the appropriate contents of the sponsors page.
First Page On
First Page On is Arekibo's SEO site, built in Wordpress. I did the XHTML/CSS cutup from a designer's concept. I was also responsible for the Wordpress integration. Of particular interest in this project is the roll-out 'Ask us a question' on the right hand side which is done using contactform7 in wordpress and jquery for the animation.
My role in the COGG redesign project was in design right through to build and client training. The design brief was to make the site more modern, cleaner and better image quality than the previous site. It was an interesting build because it is a bi-lingual site with CMS integration. The CMS system was Clearscape's own .NET based CMS, known as Control One. It involved close work with the developer as it was the first time we did a bi-lingual version of Control One. When the site was built I held a training meeting with the clients to show them how to edit using Control One. Post-build I was involved in the support calls from the client for the site.
This redesign received Ireland’s Irish Language eGovernment Award in 2010
The CEDL job was to redesign an existing site to make it cleaner and for it to have more of a global appeal. A lot of their imagery wasn't up to standard so there was a good deal of image touch-up and manipulation to be done to make it fit in with the new design. It's a relatively small site, roughly 20 pages or so, and static build. After the design I created the skeleton of the site in HTML and one of the junior designers filled out the inside pages and content.
Clearscape catered for over 60 clients at any one time. Part of my job there was to take care of the maintenance of these sites either myself, or through delegation to junior members of staff.
