Welcome to x0101, the portfolio site of Mike Hammond. Above are samples of recent work. Click on the thumbnails to get more information. The best project is always the next one. So take a look around and if you would like to know more, please get in touch.
Very often, the client only has a rough idea of what they want. I help them decide who they are talking to, what the message is they want to convey and how they want the site visitor to respond.
The next stage is wireframes and then fully detailed Photoshop visuals of several pages and a couple of alternatives for discussion. Comments are acted on, until we arrive at a design everyone is happy with.
Then comes the site build. Whether it is flat html coding or using a cms like Wordpress. This is always created to the design and I never use an off-the-shelf theme unless it is heavily customised. Add content. Launch. Job done.
I am an experienced London based web designer/developer with a background in brand design and marketing. I have worked with many clients to develop sites from the most basic of briefs through to a successful launch. I like to collaborate with the client to get the best results and exceed expectations. I have worked with large corporations and major global brands, as well as with new startups which can be very rewarding.
I have been working with digital media for the past 20 years and seen many incredible developments along the way. Every project has something to learn from and has something to add to it. That's the way I like it.
I can take a project from first concepts to final build or anything inbetween. That includes working with Wordpress, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier Pro, php/mySQL, html, css, video, audio and whatever is required to give the client the best site possible, within the budget.
Conceptualize, Visualize, Realize.
