Relaunching Prisonism.co.uk

leave a comment »

I’m very proud to share the revamped Prisonism.co.uk site I did for Carl Cattermole.

p

Lovingly hand-coded using Notepad, the site is now responsive and includes an author page of linking to journalism, interviews and media appearances.

It took me a while to work out how to get the three column layout to respond well to smaller screen sizes but I got there in the end. The site is fully mobile friendly and is optimised for search and social with meta data, twitter cards, open graph tags etc.

Back to CSS school

I refreshed my CSS knowledge developing a one page site for a prison education project. You can see ‘HMP: A Survival Guide‘ at prisonism.com. You can order a paper copy of the guide from the site for under a fiver using Paypal, or you can download the PDF for free. This new version is expanded and contains illustrations by Financial Times/Private Eye cartoonist Banx.

I’ve been meaning to fix up this website for a while. Finally I did it.

I lost some posts on the old hosting, but mainly just conference slides, all of which you can find under “work” on the right.

Grammar for SEOs

leave a comment »

Grammar is important for SEO. I wrote about it on the SiteVisibility blog, and this pecha kucha presentation features some grammatical refreshers for SEOs. This is from 2009 so forgive me. The sound is a bit sketchy so also apologies for that.
