Online store checks out for Web Technology student


Web Technology student John Knowles worked on launching an online store for the fast-growing youth fashion brand Golddigga while completing his degree at Lincoln.


John, who will graduate from the University in September, has now gone on to join the Nottingham-based web development company Nzime, who he worked for as a freelancer on the Golddigga project.


He said: “Nzime is a cross-media agency made up of designers, programmers and dedicated individuals producing exciting, impactful graphic design for clients including Maru Swimwear and Elastoplast.


“They saw my website http://www.knowj.com and invited me in for a chat. They seemed to like what I had done and I then worked for them on a number of projects whilst still studying for my degree.”


For John’s final year project he built a PHP and MySQL e-commerce system that Nzime are using for their online store for Golddigga.


John added: “Working for the company really helped my degree course and I think the standard of work I’m coming up with now is way beyond what I was doing before.”
