The Brief

The Method

After a brief discussion with Derek, we decided that the way forward was to move his website to a self-hosted WordPress website.

We arranged the hosting together  and then I got to work with the prettifying.  (One of my most favourite words).

He wanted something simple yet professional and modern.  Oh, and his favourite colour is green.

Derek did have his blog hosted on Blogger and his website on Google sites but, thanks to WordPress, we were able to combine both into one easy to manage website.

I still help Derek with the maintenance of the website but effectively, he runs it himself.


Features is still a work in progress with more pages being added regularly but currently it includes:

  • Home Page – Modern and simple, the homepage features the latest posts from the blog.
  • Books – All of Derek’s currently published books are arranged in an accordion style manner.
  • Portfolio – Derek’s up-to-date CV with plenty of examples of his work.
  • Contact – A nice and simple contact form. is SEO friendly and responsive.
