The online portfolio of Matt Scott
A web designer and developer in the city of Bath with a passion for effortlessly attractive user interface. More about me
I'm a student of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath, about to enter the final year of a five-year program. I've been involved in web design and development for over five years (since I had my first part-time job as a developer near my hometown of Ash Vale). Since then I've been creating websites for friends and associates alongside my studies and in the summer breaks.
I'm constantly trying to keep up-to-date with web technology and best-practice. I have a specific interest in website usability, including technical web typography and properly semantic markup.
I am looking to expand my portfolio further before I graduate and as such am looking for work — freelance or otherwise. Please email me at or phone me on 07969 492354 if you are interested in hiring me.
Cafe International brand and website
A local outreach project called Cafe International required a light, modern brand identity that would appeal to international students at the University of Bath. The brand and website needed to convey the friendly, welcoming and relaxed attitude of Cafe International itself.
The coffee cup logo and typography was created in Corel Paint Shop Pro XI for the website and for business cards. The website was built on phpSQLiteCMS which meant it could be run on a server without a mySQL database, while still allowing the group themselves to edit the website directly via a graphical user interface and WYSIWYG text editor.Visit the Bath Cafe International website
A church youth group called Y:fish required a visually stimulating flyer to advertise a fun weekend away to the teenagers it was marketed towards. The aims behind the weekend were education in a fun, vibrant and accepting environment.
The flyer was created in Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI and used creative typography and a bright colour pallette, as well as a slanted axis and gritty texturing to appeal to the young audience.Preview the FishTank flyer
Urban Saints Guildford website
A Guildford youth group required a website to inform teenagers and parents of the group activities, from an introduction to the group to recording the events happening each and every week.
After building the first website on the smarty templating engine, it was felt that using a CMS that would enable leaders to update the website themselves would foster more creativity and flexibility. The new website (currently in demo phase) is built on Wordpress to encourage a more 'blog'-like and human feel to the site. The design has also been refreshed, and links to facebook have been introduced, to boost appeal to web-savvy teenagers.
The Urban Saints Guildford website that is currently live is the older version, built on the smarty templating engine. The one I have most recently designed is currently in a demo phase, awaiting to be signed off by the customer. However, it can still be accessed at the link below.Visit the current Urban Saints Guildford website Visit the demo Urban Saints Guildford website
