Flight Global

Multi-role contract working on several business websites across Reed Business.

This was a three year contract creating pages for air shows, magazines, stock market pages and more.

Job Description

I was the senior front-end designer in charge of coding the HTML and CSS for a multitude of different projects including the Paris Air Show and Farnborough Air Show for the Flight Global magazine.

The Team

I was part of a huge team (80+ on the various projects) and I had to liaise with many project managers plus dozens of back-end developers, usability testers, database testers and graphic designers.

Working Environment

This was a fully Agile environment which meant I was liaising with many different teams and project managers across the board. I was working mainly at their Surrey offices but also worked in Holborn in London.

The Challenges

When I first arrived the Pair Air Show was just around the corner. They had a new content management system which they could not get styled how they wanted. It had HUGE limitations in the CSS. I couldn't use floats, positions or any of the normal processes to style.

I succeeded in styling it how they wanted but the CMS was unstable at that time so I was flown out with the team and spent my time at the Paris and Farnborough Air Shows making sure the CMS was working and also assisted with the huge social media campaign that brought in Five Million in advertising revenue.

The Code

There were many sections to the website and I coded the HTML and CSS for all the main sections including the home page you see below.

"When I first met Simon he came across, relaxed, approachable but very informative and helpful. His knowledge and advise concerning the design and format of my Web site was first rate. I am very pleased with the outcome and his after care support is great for someone like me that is not to computer minded. Would not hesitate to recommend Simon for your web design, setup and after care support."
