Together Money.Site Rebuild • Vue.js • Development • 2022
I was contracting with Unrvld earlier this year, a Digital Agency that works across 5 continents with some big brands. During my time collaborating with them, I helped with a lot of the development work on one of their client’s new websites; Together Money.
Together Money was undergoing a rebuild, and in the process updating the
frontend tech that was powering their site.
I helped with many of the components seen on their homepage, utilising Vue.js for those with more dynamic aspects.
Contracting with an agency has some nice benefits; feeling part of a
team, having designs given to you, someone else to take responsibility
for organising all of the nitty bitty pieces.
That meant that all I had to focus on was the tech involved, the client requirements and building the website components.
What I worked on
I helped with many components for the TogetherMoney rebuild, taking over
the project from another Frontend Developer. Working in concert with a
previous colleague of mine called Mike.
- The mega navigation.
- The hero component at the top of the page.
- The product descriptions, separated by tabs.
- The help & advice panels.
- The Feefo review pagination.
- Among others…
TogetherMoney’s website was built around Sitecore’s Helix architecture. With the frontend dynamically loading only the relevant scripts and styles for those components that were on the page.
This lazyloading of appropriate elements ensured the website was fast and performant.
Built using a mixture of Vue.js, ES6, HTML5 and SCSS. It was a very nice project to work on, as rebuilds often are, taking some months of custom development.
How this benefitted TogetherMoney
Updating the tech to use modern frameworks took a lot of custom
development time. However it also came with a lot of benefits for the
- A welcoming home page, benefitting from clear naviagtion.
- Modern functionality with all the advantages and speed that such frameworks bring.
- Reusable dynamic components.
- Custom Finance Calculators.
- Creating a customer journey tailored to the visitor.
- Helping visitors to know exactly how TogetherMoney could really serve them.
- Giving a clear indication of what rates and amounts would be available for the given scenario.

Good design is a journey of understanding.
My aim is to create a website that helps you to reach your goals & provide real measurable value.
Each project begins by learning as much as I can about your needs &
business, in order to get a crystal clear picture of issues your users
may be facing and an insight into how to ensure your site performs.
I want to identify your goals, along with where your needs are not being met. This allows me to help to get you where you want to be.
Using this research as a solid foundation, we can move fowards, confident that the site we build together will give you the results you’re hoping for.
Attention to detail is key, which I combine with a results-driven
approach when designing my client’s websites.
Bringing an understanding of good design principles, I ensure your website not only looks good, it’s also a pleasure to use – helping it to outperform your competitors.
I prioritise performance & stability in every website that I build as a
freelance web designer, as I know how important it is to you that it
functions as well as it looks!
Want to have control of your own content? No problem, I primarily work with WordPress; providing clients with a simple & intuitive way to manage your website.
Taking care of your investment is super important! I offer a range of
flexible website maintenance packages solely designed to ensure your new
website is secure & backed up.
If you’re thinking of making iterative updates to your site and improving it over time, you’ll definitely want this.
