      Sam Frimpong      Just completed a commercial artists marketing campaign. Client needed a face lift in there
   T 07513 425 251      presentation which was originally given them a good degree of success but wanted to target
E sfrimp@loluk.co.uk    high-end architects and interior designers as clients. I redeveloped there website, branding,
                        stationary and portfolio. Please see example of old website: http://www.sambart.co.uk/
                        New website I just completed for them http://www.samanthabaxter.com/
                        My other recent projects I have worked on are Maxim Fashion Agents who are one
                        of the top Fashion Agents in London with an array of top fashion Stylist, Photographers, and
                        Make Up Artist in the fashion industry. See example: http://www.maximfma.com/
                        Completed their new website a month ago. Their previous site which I built over 3 years ago,
                        at the time increased Maxim Fashion Agents profile in the fashion industry. Their search
                        engine placement in Google increased drastically due to the traffic the website was
                        generating, and won a lot of recommendation and praises for the dynamics and user
                        experience of the site.
                        The new site is now database driven from XML which has made the whole site extremely
                        small. 72k in comparison to the previous site 2.7 meg. The new site is faster, sharper, and
                        and easier to navigate. All images have been retouched and made bigger as this site is used
                        by the artist to display their portfolio’s to Advertising Agencies.
                        The website took me four months to build as every image needed to be retouched and the
                        menu system had to work in the same way as the old system, only XML driven. A rewarding
                        project but very hard work.

                        LOL. An international project which I am currently working on. My Objectives on this project
                        were to develop an interface which was translated in 15 other languages. Part of my task
                        was to develop a navigation system that was very user friendly despite the complexity of the
                        programming involved. I intentionally used symbol’s for the navigation system as the
                        interface needed to be accessible by other countries.
                        Produced brochures for print and online PDF's. Created story-boards, recorded minutes
                        digitally, liaised with Managing Director and Linguistic expert on project. Implemented video
                        streaming, integrated front-end interface with back-end development in ASP and PHP.
                        Incorporated 3D graphics / animation with a high quality robust front-end interface built in
                        Flash, XML, HTML, and Photoshop.
                        In these past three years I have built up a reputable portfolio which clearly demonstrates my
                        ability to take on high end projects and implement high quality, with creative simplicity and
                        dynamic design.
