A new home for Jim Smith, illustrator and copywriter

Jim Smith (aka Waldo Pancake) is a designer, illustrator and copywriter whose work can be found on the side of juice bottles, sweet packets and inside every Puccino’s coffee shop.

With an existing site that was Flash-based, his work could no longer be viewed on mobile devices. Jim asked me to redevelop his website, retaining the slideshows of work (updated by uploading images via an FTP client), yet implemented using standards-based web technologies.

In addition to visualising designs in HTML, I created a file based content management system in PHP, and used jQuery to provide cross-browser compatible image slideshows.
