Espresso Education 2006

I finished working as a web developer at Espresso Education in May 2006. We provided media rich teaching resources and student activities that are as robust as they are engaging.

The content is delivered to a cached server within each school and is updated on a weekly basis, this allows us to avoid many of the bandwidth restrictions associated with file size and steaming media. Standard Internet and Web browser technologies are used to deliver content from the cached server to the end user.

On the practical side of things I have been building intuitive and accessible projects with consistent design themes, whilst also applying creativity and technical input to a weekly news broadcast. Wherever possible we respect web standards and the use of valid, minimal markup.

Below is a montage of some of the projects I have worked on over the past couple of years. I’ve tried to give each one a look and charm of its own without reusing too many ideas, like shiny buttons or predictable web 2.0 fades!

All work relies heavily on CSS for functionality and layout, with a clear distinction made between the content and presentation layers.
