RH Ball & Company

Design & Development

TJC helped this Leicestershire based accounting company modernize their online presence and as a result, increase their online enquiry frequency and search ranking.

RH Ball & Company approached TJC seeking an affordable way to update their existing online presence. I was the lead designer on the project and working together with the team we quickly realised that their existing site did little to show their personality and laid back approach to client interaction. Following initial design exploration and interviews we established that while their web design was lacking, they did have some well designed, attractive print collateral with which the they were very satisfied.

Using this print media as a base for inspiration we produced a series of designs utilizing the aesthetic treatment and background patterns with a goal of unifying both into a consistent brand. In order to keep the project within budget we made key decisions with bootstrap in mind and focused on keeping the site components simple and reusable in the context of this framework.

About Me

My name is Andy Hook, I’m a digital illustrator, web designer & front-end developer currently based in East Sussex.

I am a dedicated, enthusiastic and highly-motivated web professional with over 5 years commercial design and development experience. Formally educated in fine art, illustration and graphic design. I have spent over 10 years working with the Adobe suite of creative applications. I have a passion for art and design, specifically how these disiplines can integrate with modern web technology.

I believe that good design is always in service of the user and it's my job to ensure that a project achieves both its business objectives and the needs of its users above all else.

This site was built using Metalsmith, styles written in SASS and modular Javascript developed with RequireJS. For those interested, the souce code is available on Github. If you have any questions let me know.

Responsive Web Design

Coupling aesthetic design sensibilities with user experience and front-end development allows me to build the best possible online experience from concept all the way to code delivery.

Digital Illustration

By using modern Wacom input tools combined with traditional illustration and artistic techniques I deliver compelling digital illustration for both web and print media.

Front-End Development

Utilizing the latest pre-processing technology, client side build tools and CSS architectural methodologies I produce clean, modular front-end code and mobile first web solutions.
