Sometimes simple is beautiful, and that was the case recently when Manchester comedian and writer Tony Burgess was looking for a new website. The brief was straight forward, and he had a lot of content from his experience in the industry.
Getting Tony’s new website looking right wasn’t too dissimilar to the writing process, getting a lot ideas down on paper, then paring it down until we arrived at something he was really happy with. Citing classic movie credits for inspiration, we arrived at something that Tony really liked. From my designers point of view it’s quite beautiful. It’s easy to understand why it would be a very unlikely initial design proposal, and I had to pull some nifty tricks to make the final project work happily with SEO. Websites can do and be so many things, but in this case pulling in the design to something tight and practical was key to making it work. Simple is beautiful and Tony’s work speaks for itself.
