...Or Why My Website Took Me So Long
I’ve just released my new website (whitestarsystems.co.uk) and I’m very proud of it. But it’s taken me 18 months to create. It’s been a journey. I’d like to share that journey with you here.
This was a site that we built for a charity that is close to our heart. The fundraising event is the Move The World Challenge for Motor Neurone Disease. MND Is a particularly horrible disease that took the life of a family member in 2016, so I was pleased when I was asked if I could help out. My graphic design partner (Marie-Lousie O'Neal from Lovely Designs) and I gave our time for free to help this cause.
We built a site that allowed the participants to login easily using their Facebook login and log the miles they had run/walked/swam, etc.The idea is that the 50 volunteers woiuld, in a year, cover the equivalent distance of travelling around the world. The site had to be very user friendly, easy to use and work particularly well on mobile device.
