Vleeds - web development

Client Login

Welcome to Vleeds.com

Vleeds.com is the website of Laurence King, a web developer based in Leeds (UK), who specialises in user interface design and development utilising HTML, CSS & AJAX.

I am passionate about creating interfaces that adhere to the latest web standards and ensure cross browser compatibility, search engine optimisation and high levels of accessibility.

Although I am most interested in user interface development I have a wealth of experience with the complete project lifecycle, from retrieving the initial design specifications to the final project hand-over. I have knowledge and skills that allow quick development of complex business logic and database layers that link into dynamic AJAX enabled front-ends. All in all I can help bring a project to completion within budget and on schedule.

Examples

Below are 3 examples of elements I have used for web design. The sudoku is an example of PHP development, with the generation and solution of the sudoku being carried out on the server and only a small amount of AJAX to facilitate the interface. Have a go and solving the sudoku, just click the empty square and enter a number, when you have got as far as you can click 'check answer' to see how many you got right. The menu is a simple example of a custom accordion script that can be used for anything, although it works nicely as a menu you could use it as a slide show or any other kind of dynamic display for data. The animation does nothing apart from demonstrate animation.

Sugar High Sweet Shop

Sugar High Sweet Shop is a simple website built about a custom CMS (content management system). This allows for all the pages to be modified, blog and event articles to be added, images uploaded, and products to be administered. The product section simply plugs into paypals for a no hassle shop setup.
