Featuring a growing library of over 800 software instruments Pianobook is a fantastic resources for composers of all types. Instruments are created and uploaded by community members for other musicians to download and use for free.
I was commissioned to redesign and rebuild Pianobook from scratch after the initial success of the project had confirmed it’s viability. Over the course of several months I worked with the fantastic team led by Christian Henson, the project’s creator and founder of world-renowned Spitfire Audio.
We relaunched in October 2021 and since then the userbase has grown to over 60,000 fanatic members. I designed a new submission process along with a bespoke rating algorithm that allows users to search for instruments by playability, inspiration and sound quality. New features are being added all the time and project has caught the attention of some big names in the world of composition.

Radio Free Matlock
Radio Free Matlock (or RFM to its friends) is an online radio station that broadcasts a mix of many super-niche shows, as well as more general musical output. I designed and built a flexible, modern site which allows listeners to tune in and listen while checking out the schedule and show notes. It’s very yellow.
A job (well done)
Cordius are interesting in that they are a genuinely awesome recruitment agency. Cordius have a real passion for the tech sector and are longterm supporters of popular local industry events. They’re really decent folk too. This site was designed to really streamline the job search process and make finding opportunities as easy as possible.
