Gus Campbell


Based in Brighton UK, since 1996 I have designed and built several non-profit, business, and personal websites.

I've done a degree course in Computer Science, a BTEC Professional Development Certificate in Multimedia, and three Open College Network (OCN) courses in various programming languages, including Java and XML. More recently, I have completed many online courses in User Experience (UX), Design, Landing Page Optimisation, and mobile app development using Flutter.

Claim to fame: When I was just 19, I won a prize — for the UK — in computer programming at the International Olympiad in Informatics in Minsk, Soviet Union, 1990.

Current work

In early 2020, I designed and built the inaugral website of the UK Facilitators of a Canadian workshop – Assessing Suicide in Kids. View the work below.

Since 2012, I have been the Website Officer (now Digital Products Officer) for Grassroots Suicide Prevention, who specialise in teaching suicide alertness and intervention skills. In 2019, I redesigned, copy-edited and built their WordPress website. Click here to read more.

I'm primarily a web coder with additional design, animation, and copy editing skills. Though I haven’t programmed extensively since the demise of Flash, here are some of my more recent multimedia examples written as a hobbyist in JavaScript using the CreateJS framework:

Older stuff (Flash - *won't work on mobile devices)

Here are a few Flash toys I designed and built in the days when Flash was the future of multimedia. Unfortunately, Flickr changed their API, so the piece de resistance (Flickr Lightbox - a physics-based slide browser with draggable photo slides) has been removed.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
