World Wide Web
In addition to print design I have been involved in the design and development of websites. This has included the technical aspects of aspects of wrangling CSS and HTML, but also the underly technologies often using PHP and MySQL. Not in anyway an expert in programming, wrangling with web-related technology scratches some kind of itch.

A small website built on Wordpress that promotes a friend’s workshops and creative reuse of lingerie for women experiencing breast cancer.
Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image needed a website for social interaction and managing membership. This was built on Wordpress.
A website was needed to collect recipes and to distribute to the testers and the editor of a cookbook centred around recipes through the seasons. Custom built it in PHP with a MySQL database, there was a steep learning curve and a satisfying result. This later morphed into a site to promote the cookbook and featured a selection of the the recipes featured in the book and a guide to seasonal ingredients.
