Penelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children. She has twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize: once in 1977 for her first novel, The Road to Lichfield, and again in 1984 for According to Mark. She later won the 1987 Booker Prize for her highly acclaimed novel Moon Tiger.
We were approached by Penelope to help design a brand new website to showcase the many novels and short-stories she has written over her successful career. Penelope’s old website had not been touched in years and was very out of date. A new mobile friendly website was commissioned to help bring the website up to date and to reach a wider audience.
It is easy to get carried away when designing a website and over design it for the sake of showing off. The focus of any website should be it’s content and we were keen with Penelope’s website to keep things basic; to focus on Penelope’s books rather than an over elaborate design. We’ve kept things simple, with a clean layout, pastel colours and a few simple animated effects.
WordPress is the perfect choice for a content managed website. Coupled with the use of the Advanced Custom Fields plugin we were able to make the admin area extremely easy to add and update novels and reviews.
