Website for Sussex Writer Ian Townsend

Website for Sussex Writer Ian Townsend

Sussex based writer Ian Townsend contacted me looking for a simple, easy to use website that he could use to publish his works. Ian already writes for a few websites, and was pretty familiar with the workings of WordPress so it was an easy choice to use it to power his own website. Built on a responsive framework makes the site easily readable on whatever device is being used to view it.

We agreed early on that website needed to be as simple and clear as possible, with the words taking centre stage. Limiting the site to just two fonts, with just some subtle colour coding of the categories. Ian also asked for a simple logo, and being a Crawley Town supporter, red and white were easily chosen!

We added a Googlemap in the travel categories to give a visual indication of Ian’s travels as well as giving a different route for users to explore his travel articles.

UPDATE

We’ve since updated this website, read more about the updated version here.

When I decided to set up a website to showcase my writing I had a clear vision of what I wanted it to look like- but needed a great deal of technical help. I emailed a number of web design companies, and quickly got the feeling that they had no interest in the project, only the pay cheque. Only one was different. GDS Web Design came back quickly with a concept and it was soon apparent that Gary really bought in to what I was trying to do. The work was carried out efficiently and with both care and flair, the bill was much lower than the other quotes I received, and the finished product fits me perfectly. I couldn't be happier.
