The Real Estate Company

Savills are one of the leading International property consultants and real estate agents in the world, with offices and associates throughout the globe.

My design and user interface work for Savills spanned various departments and products within the company during the time I was employed there and after I left, on a consultancy basis.


Responsive Web Design & Development

I worked within the marketing team and software engineering teams during my time at Savills, creating visuals and designing and coding the front end of web sites.

I was the sole front end designer at Savills. I would recreate my designs as template files in HTML/CSS, for the engineers to wire up to the back end.

Projects indluded designing the main UI for the company HR system, client intranets and also various sections of the company's global websites.

Ongoing Design Work

Working within Savill's style guide, I gave their original standalone site for international residential property a complete redesign. I designed the whole look of the new site, and developed the initial working prototype. I took take the home page away from Savills' usual corporate look and reflected the aspirational lifestyle properties on sale.

After I left Savills the international residential site was incorporated into their main property search and I was asked to help with development on a consultancy basis. Using hi-fidelity visuals as a guide, I built the new property search pages in responsive HTML and CSS for the engineers to wire up to the back end.
