R Burke - Website Design, Website Development and Graphic Design


This is a sample of my recent projects. If you would like to see more of my work, please get in touch.


Ubipix is an online platform that enables GPS-tagged video and images to be recorded, uploaded, published, analysed and shared.

I was involved in the project as a long-term contractor responsible for PHP development and map-based programming. The project utilised the specialist geographical software engineering skills that I acquired with my Masters degree in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), as well as a broad range of general back-end development and database optimisation skills. Our work had a strong focus on secure, responsive, AJAX-based design. I was the primary developer on the following aspects of the project, and secondary developer for the site as a whole, needing the flexibility to immediately switch focus when work was required on a certain area or a bug was discovered.

  • User groups system - the ability of users to create and manage private groups for the sharing of their media
  • Map optimisation - improving the performance of the application's online maps using clustering algorithms
  • Media combination - allowing users to link individual GPS-tagged videos together to form extended routes displayed at the map level
  • Media editing - adding edit capabilities for users to change or remove their media details after upload

The Arcade

The Arcade is an online magazine aimed at geek and gamer culture in Ireland.

As the company's co-founder and sole web developer, I have designed and developed in full several incarnations of the website since its launch in 2010. The project is a highly customised Wordpress installation tailored towards suiting the magazine's large team of writers. I also design promotional materials for the company, including online advertisements and printed posters & flyers. The Arcade has a sizeable social media fanbase, and I am involved in managing, promoting and optimising its social media presence through advertising and online competitions.
