New Custom Designs

Here’s one of my most recent designs for a school in Bradford. It’s SharePoint 2007 site using CSS, master pages and page layouts. It’s an interface for a primary school which hopefully makes it easier to use without losing the SharePoint functionality.

We had a nice opening ceremony which was attended by the local news paper (see below).
