2020VISION has been a wonderful project to be involved with, over the lifecycle from its launch in 2010, to 2014. The site now forms an archive of the project. I designed a custom CMS to manage the data from 20 photographers’ assignments, galleries, project details, geolocation data, videos… and a wordpress blog for the photographers’ diaries..
Britain’s most ambitious conservation visual media initiative … ever!
20 photographers | 20 assignments | 1 vision … to show the link between healthy ecosystems and healthy people. In other words…
A wilder Britain is good for us!
This commission involved designing a custom CMS to manage the site as well as graphical work.
In an age dominated by visual media, creative imagery is a powerful communication tool that can promote a wider understanding and appreciation of the natural world – this is what defines the Wild Media Foundation.
Working alongside other disciplines, our job is quite simply to bring nature’s stories closer to people’s lives. If not winning hearts and minds, then at least opening them.
I designed the custom cms for managing the Highland Tiger site, another environmental project close to my heart.
Saving the forgotten cat … there may only be 400 Scottish Wildcats left in the wild.
I worked with Wild Wonders of Europe over the main 3 years of the project, designing and managing multiple blogs, searchable galleries, featured interviews, videos, an annual international phtographic competition with public voting system – and more! I built a complete CMS for managing the site, and managed the database.
The site was developed over several incarnations. The current site is an archive and still uses aspects of my designs, although I left the project as its active lifecycle came to an end.
The world’s largest ever nature photography project: 60 photographers, more than 100 missions across 45 countries of Europe, to bring us images of wild nature in Europe.
The Tooth&Claw project ran for a few years until 2010, to raise awareness about Britain’s wild predators and the way we feel about them. A major part of the site was the interactive survey, the results of which eventually formed the Tooth&Claw book.
The site was taken down at the end of the project.
I have tremendously enjoyed working with Scottish based nature photographer and photo-journalist Peter Cairns. Many of the images and ideas you will find on the site revolve around the wildlife and wild places of northern Scotland. Coverage extends further afield to Scandinavia, Europe and the USA and features the political and environmental issues that accompany modern-day wildlife management worldwide.
The site has an online booking system together with custom back-office management systems.
The site also offers Northshots photo-tours, wildlife photographic adventures, hide rental, and an online store for books, prints, and photo-tours.
