A new home for the poems of Peter Daniels
Mud Kitchen recently launched a new website for Peter Daniels, an award-winning poet based in Stoke Newington, North London.
Peter contacted Mud Kitchen to help him refresh his online presence, which was spread across two different websites and a WordPress blog. We recommended consolidating everything into one site, for SEO reasons and to make everything easier to manage.
We worked with Peter to define a style that suited his personality and his work, reflecting this in the typography, colours and imagery used on the new website. At the same time, we were also working with Peter to develop a website for his other venture, an independent publishing company called Pronoun Press. While each site has its own identify we aimed to ensure some consistency between the two designs so that they would feel like part of the same family.
The new website uses bold imagery to bring Peter’s work to life and it includes full e-commerce functionality to enable Peter to sell his poetry collections online. We built the site in SquareSpace, to make optimum use of Peter’s budget and to enable him to manage and maintain the site easily in the future.
Take a look at the new site at www.peterdaniels.org.uk.
