Michel le Sueur designed the look / front-end of the website and ordering system. It had to be exact (no template-based solutions), so I hand-coded it in html, css, php and MySQL. I created and programmed the ordering system to generate an ordering page for each of the 300 photographs. The 40 galleries access two MySQL databases to reference the photos used and their sizes and positions on the pages, so this serves as a content management system for the galleries.

FIFA 2010 Green Goal Legacy Report Together with a small team we completed a complicated technical report for international circulation in June 2011. The standard of the report had to improve on the design and standards of the host country of the previous World Cup, in this case Germany. Despite a complete redesign at the point of completion, and another half-redesign shortly thereafter the project was completed with much praise from the mayor and City of Cape Town. I continue to help out at Fizzee from time to time (as iSimon) in various roles ranging from website coding to system installations.
