Alexandra Palace is a north London music and entertainment venue, and has been a very valuable and rewarding client for me personally. We recently won the opportunity to redevelop their main site, as well as taking care of their various microsites that we spin out for individual events

During the time I’ve been working with Alexandra Palace, I have undertaken maintenance on their main site (a WordPress site, which requires a mixture of html, css, javascript and php skills). More recently, I have been immersed in the redesign of their site from the ground up. We undertook card sorting exercises, took feedback on the pain points of the current site and workshopped how to overcome them, and mocked up bespoke features and devices that would make browsing the new Alexandra Palace site a unique and enjoyable experience.

Having worked on creating a flexible WordPress microsite platform for the seasonal events Alexandra Palace holds, I am now the sole developer taking care of visual and functional changes from release to release. I write lean child stylesheets that don’t overwrite rules unless they need to.
