Beyond Conservation Blog Blue Ventures, a UK registered charity, approached me to redesign their blog. Their old blog was running on an outdated version of WordPress with a hundred out of date or unused plugins. It was slow. It looked terrible. It needed a facelift, but more than that it needed a clear new hierarchy (fitting in with the charities wider project goals) and more engagement for their users. Working closely with Blue Ventures staff I managed the full redevelopment of the site covering everything from design to navigation hierarchy to site performance and security. The new site meets all of the clients demands and more providing a hugely improved immersive visual experience for site users. http://blog.blueventures.org

Clock Farm House is a 5 star holiday house in Yorkshire. While the house was being made ready for guests I was asked to build a website allowing online booking and highlighting the high class nature of the property. I visited the house to take photographs of the property for the site, built the website and designed the logo for use online and in print. Over the past 2 years I have continued to support Clock Farm with online bookings, site analytics and SEO, email and social media management, site and server updates and maintenance. http://www.clockfarmholidays.co.uk
Geographies of Missing People The Geographies of Missing People is an award winning research project led by Dr Hester Parr at the University of Glasgow. I've been involved with this project for over 4 years now, building the initial website then follow up projects including a documentary photoshoot and digital design of a number of printed reports. http://www.geographiesofmissingpeople.org.uk Dr Hester Parr, University of Glasgow I have been very pleased with this service. Martin has helped me communicate my research to different audiences really well. The page has had absolutely great viewing figures for a single project - and this is partly to do with the quality as well as the content. Martin is always responsive and very very quickly deals with any question or problem. I would not look anywhere else for web support. Custom emailsPerformance optimisationSEOPhotography
Protected Species are a UK start up who required a fully functioning online store to sell their waterproof women's outerwear. They wanted a clean, professional feel for their premium product. The site needed to be fast and secure and play nicely with online payments, social media, analytics, and search engine optimisation and online advertising.

I maintain the site and regularly update it to keep it looking and working great, working with the brand owners to make sure it is optimised and performing as well as it can be to help them meet their business goals.

Population-Health-Environment is an integrated approach to conservation management. Led by Blue Ventures, the PHE Madagascar network has members in over 40 environmental and health charities working in Madagascar. I designed the project logo and custom icons as well as designing and developing the full site. It is a multilingual (WPML) site with custom built resources and member database and also integrates with a custom built multilayer Google Map. http://www.phemadagascar.org Laura Robson, Blue Ventures Beautiful and fully functional website! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Martin on this bilingual WordPress site. He set up the theme and supported me to populate it with content. He also created a number of custom plug-ins that enabled us to showcase resources and details of network members in exactly the way I had envisaged. We have ended up with a beautiful and fully functional website to be very proud of! Positive feedback from numerous partners and funders is testament to Martin's excellent work on this site.
