Interface Design NRL Tickets

Client: NRL
Completion: March 2015
Visit: NRL Tickets Site

  • Interface design
  • Front-end code (HTML, CSS, jQuery)
  • CMS (ExpressionEngine)

The NRL approached me in early 2015 to design and build a new responsive Tickets portal. The catch: only 3 weeks from kickoff to go live.

I was able to design, code and build the site on time and budget.

The site uses the ExpressionEngine CMS - so the client can update / edit and add games and events throughout the year.

The CMS automatically pulls in hundreds of game details from an existing, official XML feed.

This major project includes some of the more advanced caching and page-speed techniques I’ve attempted. My goal was to score over 85/100 on Google PageSpeed Insights. This was achieved through some ExpressionEngine caching, browser caching and file minimisation / compression.

This is great. Thanks Dave! Fantastic! WOOOHOOOO! Sara, NRL
