Who’s responsible?

Alan J Durkan

Hello, I'm Alan Durkan a Web designer and Front-end developer. Originally from London, I'm now based in the East Midlands. I've been working in Digital design full-time for close to two decades. I started out specialising in the creation of Flash-based games and animation before developing a passion for HTML/CSS/JS and more recently crafting responsive web experiences for marketing and eCommerce ventures.

Notable works

Over the course of my career I've been lucky enough to work on projects for nationally recognised brands and organisations which include…

London Transport Museum

London Transport Museum’s Online Shop won the award for Best Online Shop at the Association of Cultural Enterprises conference in Bournemouth in March 2015. The judges commended the Museum for having a crisp and elegant website which they regarded as a model of its kind in the sector. They were also impressed by the online business generating 28% of the Museum's turnover since the redesign.

Branding & Illustration

The effective use of illustration can be an often undervalued but crucial component in helping users to navigate unfamiliar environments and to feel at ease with new ideas. I like to create unambiguous, strong, instantly recognisable marks that help to create and reinforce a positive association with a brand or experience.

Other former clients also include Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, G H Hurt & Son, The RSPB, The National Maritime Museum, St Pancras International, The Public Records Office, Guinness World Records, Benetton, The University of Nottingham and a host of others.
