I worked on a number of projects for the Students Loan Company. The largest was an online student finance calculator accessed through the Directgov web site. This tool allowed a prospective student to enter their personal circumstances including domicile status, parental income, choices of course/university etc and then to receive an accurate calculation of their student finance entitlement. The tool was designed and produced to strict Directgov branding using their transactional toolkit.

From functional specifications I created user friendly designs and interactions using storyboards, sitemaps, wireframes and lo-fi prototypes. Once approved I hand coded the designs into standards compliant XHTML, CSS and JQuery to be passed to the development team. I was also responsible for maintaining documentation and using version control software to check in/out files. 

Also I produced a library of design patterns as HTML/CSS/JQuery with documented instructions to assist the development team to effectively develop web standards compliant solutions.
