The Vivid Press, Manchester

The Vivid Press are a Manchester-based independent book publisher that required a custom designed site for selling and promoting their books. Along with custom infrastructure and hosting, The Vivid Press site was designed very rapidly and deployed with ease, allowing them to immediately promote their books.

The Whiskey Jar, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Further to past projects with the owner of this establishment, I installed a new wireless and wired network infrastructure for the Whiskey jar, allowing management, staff and customers to login and utilise a high-speed internet connection, whilst keeping different user groups separated.

Attached to this new infrastructure are also critical systems such as the point-of-sale and EFT terminals, running on their own segregated network.

I utilised some great equipment from Ubiquiti Networks for this project, including their EdgeMAX and UniFi line of products. I highly recommend it.

This was a physically installed product, go take a look and buy yourself a beer whilst admiring the handywork.

Glass Unicorn, Poynton

A band I'm in consisting of my Uncle, and 3 good friends. Playing folk and prog rock, I'm the keyboardist, backing singist, producer and engineer. I also host our mail server and website (which I'm yet to finish!).

Once I've completed the website for this, you can take a look at when we're next gigging and read a bit about us. From memory, we're next playing The Acoustic Lounge in Poynton on Friday, 6th September 2019 at 8PM.
