The neon pink colors on the form represent a nice touch of class to offset the bullish nature of it’s thorough validation. I love the way the shots keep their impact especially in mobile responsive mode.
The Hempel Collection HTML / CSS Javascript jQuery In another outing with British Land, the Hempel Collection oozes with sophistication. A slick menu combined with a simplistic, clean interface was further enhanced by wonderful hi-res shots.

Lulu & Co HTML / CSS Javascript jQuery Lulu & Co's e-shop represented an excellent opportunity to refine my E-commerce and Shopify coding skills in a project which required a peaceful union between Wordpress and Shopify. In later phases we opted to move the whole system into the Shopify CMS. In this project I learnt a few neat tips on combining the Shopify templating language, Liquid, with Ajax to produce and API of-sorts which could be used more freely.
House of Holland HTML / CSS Ajax jQuery E-commerce Shopify Henry Holland wanted to revamp their store in anticipation of their new AW13' Nana Rave collection. The jazzy decor and typefaces worked well with Henry's playful and colour-rich designs. Built in shopify, the House of Holland store features a blog, interactive social wall and customizable lookbooks linking to the relevant product. This project was interesting as tangible web metrics such as conversion and sales played a big factor in all major build and design decisions. Another challenge was allowing the user to change currency live on-page.

Featuring an advanced tone matching system, the app allowed customers to capture their skin tone using the handset camera. Based on the tone, the app engine shows the user which skin type they have with suggested tips. The challenge of this project was writing clean Javascript code that could power the tone detection engine locally on the users handset.

For iPad and tablet readers we created an interactive advert which embeded into one of the pages. The user could also click through to davidclulow.com directly from the ad.

Clearings London HTML / CSS Ajax jQuery E-commerce Shopify The Clearings SW3 website sufficiently ticked the all the boxes required of a luxury property brochure site with beautiful hi-res CGIs, maps and floorplans. What made this project interesting was the login system which allowed verfied users to access to a hidden area where extra supplementary media can be downloaded.
