Ben Jeapes

Ben Jeapes is a Science Fiction writer living in the UK. He writes novels, shorts stories, reviews and has worked as a publisher and technical writer, among other things.

I contacted him about updating his old website which he had been maintaining since 1996 using basic HTML in Windows Notepad and little else. Ben was looking for a more modern looking site which he could maintain himself.

I modified the Twenty-Eleven Theme for WordPress creating custom graphics and incorporating various plugins and other functions for Ben’s site. The site is a responsive design, altering its layout based on the user’s device resolution.

It was my largest project to date, integrating well over 100 pages of content with a fully functioning blog to showcase the author’s vast amount of work, detailed biography and contact information.

Testimonial

James was able to combine the content of my old Web 1.0 website and blog into a single site that is much more modern and infinitely more attractive. The menu structure that he devised hugely enhances the user interface while keeping the sense and functionality of the original site. He is a pleasure to work with.

I modified the Yoko Theme for wordpress creating and developing a website for Zen Insights. The site design is balanced and flexible, responding to multiple sizes and platforms while maintaining a harmonious, minimalistic style.

Along with a few other writers, I maintain the blog, posting experiences, thoughts on philosophy and inspiring quotes, articles and videos.

Testimonial

Zen Insights not only has great conept, it has great design. The simplistic layout of the site adds to the overall theme. As a co-author, I fully enjoy writing for the site as well as viewing it. I am confident that my words are portrayed/displayed in a clear and well-organized manner. The user-oriented design makes the site accesible to anyone who finds interest in its excellent content.

DP Studios Archive

DP Studios began in between classes at Devon Prep in September of 2005 with a series of short comedic films. The comedy was recorded at school during free periods and occasionally during class when the teachers were distracted. At its height DP Studios consisted of a forum that our class used to discuss the videos, teachers and weekend festivities. It finally came to an end after graduation in June 2006.

I modified the Yoko WordPress theme for DP Studios Archive to showcase a series of comedy videos in a minimal, clean and responsive design. I designed and developed the website using a custom created layout and graphics.
