This week, we chat to Vaughan Simons about content and content-related design. Here’s his introduction:
“I’ve worked on the web for over 17 years, having fallen into it quite by accident when I landed a job with the BBC in early 1998, where I ended up working on their online services just as they were really getting going. I spent 14 very busy years there, then a couple of years doing digital stuff for charities, before deciding to do something I’d been thinking about for a while and go freelance, having been designing and building extra-curricular WordPress websites for friends and my own projects since 2006. The discovery of the Genesis Framework played a big part in my decision, as it finally felt like a structure I could work with.
“I love helping clients get good-looking websites with an organised, user-friendly structure and clearly written copy. I chose to work under the name Pilcrow + Pixel as I felt it reflected the balance of my specialisms: design and content. Plus it was alliterative, which always helps.”
