Umbraco Illuminates Lighting

In July 2015 I created an ASP.NET website to connect to an existing database of lighting products. The original consumer facing website was built by a third-party and would use an API to the database in order to add and update products. In order to enable these updates, the third-party would charge systematically for any changes made. Due to time constraints (two weeks), I recreated a prototype of the public facing website using the database directly – thus by passing the third-party entirely.

This prototype became the website, and used directly to update product information by the end-client. With time and new branding, along with a fellow developer, I helped make an Umbraco 7 version of this website.

Many of the models I had created in the first prototype were reused – as the data structure had remained the same. The end client is a global market leader in its field, as such the website is multilingual. I carried out much of the frontend development for this site defining document types, templates and language variants. I also applied responsive styling to an associated document library.
