As the web designer & developer my role was to maintain online assets in addition to running various projects. As the company had just changed ownership, my first major project was to roll out the rebranding throughout the online assets, both internally and externally. Taking this opportunity I restructured the underlying HTML to modernise the templates in the banking application and consequentially reducing page weights to optimise page speeds within the applications.

Additionally, I was the design lead for the rebrand of the online banking application; further developing various UI components that were wrapped into the core of the application.
