Website for Stephen Bates

Stephen Bates was a Guardian writer for 23 years but when he became an author he required a website to attract new commissions.

Given the nature of Stephen’s business, words are the hero in this responsive website. The design was used to facilitate easy navigation and make the option to buy products or make contact, clear and simple. It is not designed primarily to sell his books (although this option is provided for UK and International readers) but to act as a showcase for his range of work – journalistic commissions, fiction and history books. Stephen updates the site with impressive reviews of his work on a regular basis.

'Looks great. V nicely designed and written' was one comment from a former colleague at the BBC.
