Recent Projects

Suffolk Shorts

A single-page holding site for The Suffolk Short Film Festival. First submissions for a limited programme, hosted by our partner First Light Festival, will open in Spring 2019. The first international festival will take place in Ipswich in October 2020 with a full programme and category awards.

Project Completed

The featured trailer on the site was shot in Ipswich's unique Spiral car park, which descends 600 feet underground.

We Are Vision

Designing and building a portal for luxury fashion brands such as Nike, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Oakley and many more to be able to order exhibition materials and point-of-sale displays across the globe.

Project In Progress

The core of the build is using Shopify, but some custom features will allow for single products to have multiple custom options for each brand.

Slate Cheese & Provisions

A new Shopify website for Slate, who are based in Aldeburgh and Southwold. The site will offer a range of cheeses and provisions and give visitors the option to join their Cheese Club – a monthly subscription service that delivers cheese to your door.

Project Completed

Every team member knows their stuff, so the site features tips and thoughts from them on every product page.

Emma Dodd School of Performing Arts

Working together with EightyOne to improve brand presence and help Emma and her team to improve CRM and membership tracking using a range of technologies.

Project In Progress

The brand identity is based around what Emma's school offers. Tutoring in singing, dancing and acting. The triple threat. #moreismore

Tech East

Working alongside the Tech East stakeholders to produce a series of page designs — along with assets and style guides — to Free Rein who handled the build aspect of the project. Launch planned for September 2018.

Project In Progress

Following very positive board feedback, the new site design forms the basis of the new design style for all printed marketing material.

Toothbrush Apartments

Fork helped Toothbrush streamline their CRM workflow by bringing in a series of Zapier Zaps; connecting up their online booking system, email notifications, customer database and accountancy services.

Toothbrush Apartments are fully serviced locations, so as the name suggests all you need to bring is your Toothbrush!

Mad HR – Workflows

Carole and the team at MAD-HR understand the power of a centralised CRM to make their business run more efficiently

Smally’s Biltong

Having originally worked on branding and packaging design for this Suffolk-based Biltong producer, I’m now working with Chris to help him with affiliate sales and order fulfilment using online services.

The word biltong is from the Dutch bil ("buttock”") and tong ("strip" or "tongue").
