Frecibo.Frecibo Link

Frecibo is a new and exciting startup looking to connect home chefs with the community and in particular hungry students who are looking for affordable and healthy food.

I am a co-founder of the startup alongside Avantika Kariwala, Ali Jasem & Edoardo Barp. My role as the Hipster, Designer, Chief Design Officer (CDO), whichever term floats you boat involves the front end development of the platform as well as the creation of promotional graphics and the all important brand. The website features many common and modern design trends, focusing on large and beautiful imagery.

This is a project we are extremely excited about and can't wait to share with the rest of the world. Currently on a pilot run at The University of Warwick. Stay tuned.

Skills Used: Adobe Photoshop, Sketch, HTML, Jade, CSS, SASS, JQuery, Eden, Gulp, Adobe XD.

Fire Door Inspection Solutions.FDIS Link

Fire Door Inspection Solutions is a facilities management provider to the fire door industry offering products on a short lead time in comparison to competitors.

I designed the brand behind the company, beginning with the logo and material such as business cards going through many designs before agreeing on a final outcome. With the logo, we wanted to create something that was distinctly different to the competition, hence the major use of the colour yellow as most companies in the industry focus on either red or orange. The idea behind the logo is the flaming door with the datil in the door also forming the 'F' in FDIS.

I also designed and developed their webiste. The idea was to develop a site attractive to the customer and with enough information to catch the viewers attention enough to query further. I have designed the site to make it very easy for more information to be shown but only if it is wanted via the use of distinct and clear action buttons. I have used design features such as parallax and fixed scrolling methods. In developement we set out a clear timeline which involved wireframing, prototyping and testing with constant communication between myself and the FDIS team.

Skills Used: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Sketch, HTML, Jade, CSS, SASS, JQuery.

RAW.

RAW, (or RaW 1251AM), is the student radio station at The University of Warwick broadcasting 24hours a day. They are a student society at The University of Warwick's Student Union comprised of hundreds of members.

RAW had their current logo at the time for a number of years, and the exec felt it was time for a big and modern change. I was recruited to help make this change. I produced a number of designs as shown below with the theme that the RAW team wanted some sort of radio waves incorporated. Minimilism was my idea. Keeping the brand simple and elegant is a vision that some of the most popular brands in the world keep in line with. This was one of the projects I enjoyed the most and I'm extremely happy and proud of the outcome. Here's an extract from Nick Harris, one of RAWs station manager who wrote an article on the rebrand in the student newspaper:

"This notion was even more evident in the decision behind employing the help of computer science student, web designer, and genius Aaron Conway to capture our ideas in a new logo. His ingenuity and particularly his patience with us, changing the tiniest details and accepting the pettiest of criticisms was fundamental to the eventual outcome". (The Boar, Vol.39, Issue 1, pg.14)

Skills Used: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.

Lush Heat Treatment is an independent company established in 1952. They specialise in Vacuum processing and brazing for clients across the Aerospace, Defence, Space, Power and Commercial sectors.

The aim for this project was to revamp the design of their site to keep in touch with the modern web design trends, while at the same time staying professional to suit the target audience. Their current website at the time was very old fashioned and out of date and needed some major changes.

Skills Used: HTML, CSS, SASS, JQuery

Tutorial Ltd.Tutorial Link

Tutorial Ltd is one of Essex's leading tuition centres and Performing Arts schools offering both 1 to 1 and group tuition. They specialise in Maths, English, Science, Performing Arts and Music.

I worked as a Tutor and designer at Tutorial for a number of years starting in Sixth Form. One of my first major roles was to make an advert showcasing the centre. This was a great oppurtunity for me in a creative project that I thoroughly enjoyed. This was my first video project.

Into my second year of university, I was quickly developing the skills of a web developer and this came to use when at Tutorial we agreed that their current website needed a revamp. Working on a project so close to my heart and one I had a lot of knowledge of was perfect in the design and development and easy communication with employees of the centre.
