[BLOG] Keep Calm and Carry On and other Second World War Posters

The site ww2poster.co.uk was constructed as an electronic resource to gather data and disseminate the research-in-progress for my PhD. The website ranks highly on Google, and has been referred to as one of the top poster-websites in James Aulich War Posters: Weapons of Mass Communication (Thames & Hudson, Imperial War Museum), 2007, receiving around 500 unique visitors per day from visitors worldwide – and around 18,000 in one month after featuring in the New York Times. The site has generated contacts from other academics working in the field, interviews with the press, a book chapter, information from artists’ relatives, and is acknowledged as the source of the backstory to Keep Calm and Carry On by Barter Books.

[BLOG] drbexl.co.uk Dr Bex Lewis: Polymath

drbexl is a site built upon WordPress, and contains personal information, including my employment history, but also where I blog and link to any number of things that I find interesting, want to support, or just generally want to witter (and Twitter) on about. There’s no set schedule for updating, and it functions largely as a scrapbook as & when I find material that I want to highlight or reflect upon:

[WEBSITE] Winchester Holistics

Winchester Holistics is a single-person holistic therapy business based in Winchester. The company required a small, friendly, small business website, which would not involve frequent updates. In 2006, we spent time in discussion as to content and structure, and used one of many free WordPress themes.

winchester-holistics1-300x225After discussions and research, I designed and structured a friendly small business website. We wanted to keep the site simple as Tina had no desire to update it, and I couldn’t guarantee being available when the site needed updating.

I studied at other ‘holistic practitioner’ sites so that I could recommend to Tina the kind of content that would be worthwhile, and also took on board the ideas she already had for what it would contain.

On paper I outlined how I thought the site would work, and then we purchased a domain name and web-hosting space from 1&1, I designed the site using Dreamweaver and images purchased from iStockphoto, and the site went live. I recommended to Tina a number of things that she could do to promote the site offline.

Following discussions site with Tina, we renamed the company in 2008 (from Reflexive feet to Winchester Holistics) to reflect the wider range of treatments she offers, and the design of the new site can be seen here. We’re completing a rework of the material, as Tina focuses more on myfascial release than the hotstones.
