My Personal Portfolio Website

Gregz

This is my personal website which I am updating daily with new work which I have created. I originally purchased the domain back when I was in high school but let it run out. I then re purchased it at university after I came to the conclusion it could be a good domain name for my portfolio.

I am still building a few of the pages but most of the website is accessible for users to play around with.

World of Warcraft Ultima Fan Site

World of Warcraft Ultima

One of my friends who plays World of Warcraft wanted a full website designed and managed using wordpress for his fan site. I created the website layout in Adobe Photoshop and then sliced it up and coded it in HTML & CSS. Once I did this I then installed wordpress using a MYSQL Database and then coded the original layout into the structure of the CMS System which then allowed him to create his own pages whilst keeping the same theme of the website throughout.

Spring Break

Preston University

One of my friends who studies events management at Preston University contacted me, who wanted me to create a poster advertising their event called 'Spring Break' which was Raising money for Bernardo's. He specified what needed to be included on the poster and also the colour scheme to which he wanted me to base the design on.

Burn Machine

Optimum Gym wanted a website designing to advertise a new barbell product called the Burn Machine. Currently the project is still on going due to other gym related issues but the website is on-line and 'most' of the website is accessible for users to browse through.

Portfolio

Summary

My name is Gregory Clayton and I am a student currently finishing my final year at Salford University Studying Web Design and Development. I learnt the basics of HTML and CSS when I was 15 which I learnt myself from working in my bedroom and then eventually when I progressed into College I decided to focus purely on Web Design and thus it lead me to University to learn the fundamentals of Web Development.

In my spare time I like to work out at the gym and spend time with friends. For a part time job I am also a Football Referee which currently is going really well, which I got my Promotion to Level 4 in 2009 which means I can officiate in the Conference North Division. 

I am a self motivated person who strives to be able to take my work and ideas to the next level. I am always willing to learn new things and take criticism to help me progress with my skills.

I hope you enjoy reading through my CV and if you have any other questions you can send me an email at [email protected]
