BBC presenter Evan Davis, the host of Newsnight and Dragon’s Den, required a “very basic, very simple” site. With only Berkshire Hathaway’s famously basic website for inspiration (per Evan’s orders), we set to work designing the website.
With a specific brief to keep things simple, the aim was not to create a feature-full website, but something basic that delivered all the information anybody could want in an easy-to-access manner, and no more. To this end we built the website responsively with a range of users and devices in mind, and ensured that the site was search-engine optimised so that it would rank atop Google searches for Evan’s name alongside his Wikipedia page.

Although the visuals are now somewhat dated, with the site having been originally developed four years ago, the website is built upon the easy-to-edit and open-source WordPress content management system, meaning pages can be easily updated by non-technical users and the security of the website is guaranteed through ongoing, free, lifetime updates.
