Notes on a Website

Creating websites since the early days of the internet I’ve worked on many great projects, but also some terrible ones.

In an attempt to understand what makes a good or bad project I started writing lists. These lists have evolved into notes on a website, a guide for clients, designers, developers or anyone interested in creating websites.

“The fact that our new website matches the ambitions we set ourselves is in no small part due to Richard’s work. I cannot imagine having navigated the complexity of the task without him.”
