Print and Web

This site in Drupal 8 is still very much under construction.

A few Wordpress sites I've built and maintain for clients:

My first Content Management System (CMS) driven website was for Hilda Kean. An existing client, Hilda approached me for consultancy on how to establish an independent web profile as she approached formal retirement from academia. Highly averse to social media, Hilda acted on my advice to create a profile on LinkedIn which she now values and actively maintains, and we went on to create a website she could update herself powered by the Wordpress content management system. The original brief was to promote her three separate areas of interest as a historian - public history, animals, London. Initially highly averse to any idea of blogging Hilda now blogs regularly, and the site has received a number of compliments from her readership. I will be updating the site with a mobile-friendly responsive theme in the very near future.

The brief was for an online database with an online form by which entry submissions would be crowdsourced. As a low budget scalable prototype from which should the need arise the data can be exported into a more bespoke solution it is powered by Wordpress deploying the FormidablePro plugin to provide the additional functionality. Visual design is built on very minimal customisation of a standard responsive Wordpress theme. A significant element of the project was to provide training and support for the core administrators and editors.
