Richard came highly recommended by a mutual friend when I was looking around for someone to upgrade my website. His work was speedy, efficient and exactly what I needed. My new site looks wonderful and is easy to access, use and update. He maintains it scrupulously. I couldn't ask for more.

Portfolio

Timothy Knapman

www.timothyknapman.co.uk

Built a new website for Tim, a children's author, on Drupal, upgrading his existing static site, giving it a modern theme with a slideshow of book covers and the ability to add new content as his books come out. His Facebook page with his news integrates into the front page, and the clean design lets him show off the cover art of his books without clutter. Each book is added through a custom content type in the CMS with multiple custom fields to slice and dice the content a number of ways such as age range and publisher. A widget on the home page shows a random book automatically each time the page is loaded, to keep this area fresh without needing to be updated manually too often.
