The adverts are aired normally during daytime TV across the Sky and iTV networks with custom phone numbers for call tracking and channel attribution.

Animal Friends Website

The way we use the web is consistently changing and to ensure that sites are as optimised as possible to ensure conversion is as high as possible we have to keep analysing and testing. The Animal Friends website is just one example whereby through consistent testing, analysis, development and optimisation it has gone through various guises in the past 18 months. The current design and functionality is not just my own ideas but that of my team as well and together we feel we have created a site which is truly at the forefront of website design, in particular in the insurance industry. Have a look at the visuals, or visit the Animal Friends website.

Nissan 350z

Back in January 2012 I managed to finally pick up one the cars on my ‘bucket list’, the infamous Nissan 350z. It’s a 2004 3.5 litre V6 RWD Japanese muscle car delivering 279 BHP with all the extras from the GT pack including Lightweight Rays alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, Heated Tan leather seats, Nissan Birdview Satnav, Bose sound system, Cruise control and of course in the best colour Sunset Orange. This post is purely a collection of some of my photos as it’s already gone through a transformation. It now features, Eibach Springs, Eibach wheel spacers, Eibach rear camber arms and bolts, Scorpion exhaust, HKS panel filter, anodised bolts, tinted windows, JVC double Din DVD player, Plenum Spacer and probably a few other bits I can’t think of right now.

Snowboarding 2012 [Video]

This is a short film I produced from the 2012 ski season in France (Les 3 Vallees to be precise). Filmed using a Go Pro Hero2 HD and custom mounted to a ski pole i wanted to capture the rawness of shredding with the family and the sense that cruising down the pistes is just a mellow distant after thought. In actual fact most Ski holidays with the family are 7 days of brutal bombing around the pistes as fast as possible jumping and jibbing off anything we can find. This film follows on from my last film Jibilicious but I decided to leave any titles out to cut straight to it. Edited using Pinnacle studio on the iPad2. I do hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment below.

Altezza Radiator Panel

I finally got around to making a custom anodised gold radiator cooling panel for my Altezza, with a bit of help from a fellow owners club member I think it looks pretty smart under there now Since this post I have since sold the Altezza and got a very nice 350z in Sunset orange. However if you are interested in the Altezza cooling panel or any of the anodised nuts get in touch I can supply them to you.

Jay T Singers website

Jason taylor is a musical entertainer and professional singer that provides unique entertainment for weddings and corporate events, or in fact any party that needs something that extra bit special in a live production. From as little as 30 minutes Jason will take audiences on a journey through sound and participation from select delegates. Jason asked me to design and build his new website, his requirements were for it to be simple, clean, easy to navigate and ‘clutter free’. I think the results speak for themselves. Jason came to me looking for a new, revitalised web design and so i did just that! I thought, something a bit funky and bit different and with a bit of interaction for viewers would speak volumes for his product and brand name. I could jibber for ages about the technical stuff but i’m not going to, instead i’d like you to make your own mind up and see it for yourself! Check it out at www.jaytsingers.co.uk

Wedding Website

I recently designed and built a personal website for our forth coming wedding. The idea was so we could keep the invites as simple as possible but on the reverse of the invites to have a link and login details for guests to see our profiles, look at some pictures and have links to resources such as the venues and directions. We updated the site with gift list recommendations and some fun little bits just to get users involved and excited prior to the wedding. I also made a wedding teaser trailer using Premiere Pro and After Effects. Technology HTML CSS XML JQuery After Effects Premiere Pro Dreamweaver
