After our successful collaboration on his company web site, Mike Rigby contacted me to help support his political campaign to become a local councillor in Somerset. He was looking for a vehicle to raise awareness of a number of issues in his local community and to focus action on solving them. He was already running successful Twitter and Facebook accounts to this end and wanted to support this with more formal, feature length articles.
Using existing campaign artwork as a basis for the bold web site theme, I set up a simple WordPress blog and supporting static content. Crucially, it had to be simple and efficient for Mike to update the site content himself and WordPress was the ideal mechanism to achieve this.
