The Story Works can undertake all kinds of Web Design work, from Consultancy to hands-on site construction, from brochureware to E-commerce.The Story Works can call on a lose collective of developers, designers and project managers to ensure clients get exactly what they need to do the job.
Based on six-years experience at BBC Worldwide, I specialise in creating sites that are usable, accessible and that use commercially available software products that are widespread and easy to maintain.
While I'm no great fan of Microsoft's methods of business, the knowledge of how to build and maintain using their software is widespread and easily available, so if you ever needed to make alterations to your site, you're not locked into using The Story Works because of some obscure or arcane software we've used.
<< This is a screengrab of an interim site I created for jeans company Lee Cooper
. They had had a fairly ghastly Flash-driven site on-line for a year or two before new management took over the company. They had a chat with me and I recommended an interim site which used CSS design rather than tables to give maximum accessibility while they were trying to figure out what they intended to do with the site.
Flash is okay, but it still has a long way to go before is is fully accessible to all users. I would certainly advise any client to think very carefully before constructing an entire site in Flash.
Anyway, the interim site seemed to do the job for a while, but recently, the company reverted to another god-awful Flash-driven site, so they're right back where they started.
