Ticketlab

Ticketlab is a personal project I’ve been working on over the past year. Originally designed to sell tickets for the Get it Loud in Libraries gigs, it has evolved into a fully-featured ticketing website for small events and venues.

Site features:

  • Responsive layout
  • Codeigniter/PHP build
  • Paypal payments
  • E-tickets
  • QR code generation
  • iframe support for 3rd parties to sell tickets on their sites
  • Custom themes for individual events

Croydon Best Bar None

I’ve been running the website for Croydon Best Bar None since the scheme’s inception in 2002. Last year was the 10th anniversary, for which I was allowed to redesign and rebuild the site. HTML5 magic with a responsive layout loosely based on the Less Framework.

Friends Reunited

I worked with Friends Reunited at the peak of their powers, shortly after a massive buy-out from ITV. I was picked up almost out of the blue from having worked on a few tabled micro-sites on the strength of my Photoshop skills and print design portfolio.

I was responsible for the first homepage redesign in about 2 years. The old homepage was cluttered, and fought for attention from everywhere you looked. I simplified the registration process into three easy steps, and brought the key navigation up front: Login or Register. We ran 3 versions of the homepage over a two week period to see which performed best, the winner making it as the final homepage for the next couple of years. As a result of this exercise, conversions to registration from the homepage increased by over 40%.

Get it Loud in Libraries

Another Drupal website, Get it Loud in Libraries is a charity that puts live music on in libraries. I designed, built and have maintained the Get it Loud site on a voluntary basis for the past couple of years. Tickets to shows are sold through my own Ticketlab platform.

The site’s key functionality includes:

  • bookings feed
  • news feed
  • Twitter broadcast
  • ticket sales
  • gallery
  • competitions
