New 9xb website: Launched at last!

6 weeks and over 200 working hours later my employers new website has finally gone Live.

It looks great, and has received rave reviews from all 9xb’s clients and associates. One client was quoted in saying “Most probably the best website I have ever seen“… sweet to hear but I feel this client may have been flattering us slightly.

I as usual contributed both on the design and the build. My major contribution was in the ‘Team’ section, every member of staff (all twenty of them) had their own page created for them. In the initial planning meetings I came up with the idea of creating a set of high impact, computer manipulated photographs of the team, with the aim of setting the company apart from its competitors and highlighting the great personalities we have in the company.

… yep, that’s me, a very rare shot of me too!

A few screenshots:

Things I did:

  • Organised and creatively directed the companies photoshoot
  • Creation of 20 high impact staff portraits
  • Partial design, including team pages
  • Overall execution of design and development
