H&A Cutting Works is a leading diamond polishing factory on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand.

This website is one of only a few within this portfolio which is powered by a Content Management System. A CMS brings many benefits to a site publisher but key to this project, it enabled the owners of the project - based in various cities around the globe - to update their website at anytime without requiring my (the programmer's) intervention.

The "News" (including the short "Newsflash") sections and the "Gallery" are all fully dynamic. Articles and images can be uploaded, edited, stored as 'drafts' or published 'live' at any time via a password protected back-end system. All other pages on the site are editable via the same system also, again enabling the site owner to keep the site current.

The fading image section at the top of the page is an Adobe Flash file while everything else is straight XHTML, CSS and JavaScript. The CMS was hand-coded in PHP and MySQL by myself as part of a much larger project.
