Following our work with Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury on The Pluto Appeal website, Jason contacted us to design his own personal webpage.
The website needed to keep Jason's fans updated with all his latest news and activities, but at the same time it had to be easy to manage and not burden Jason's busy schedule. Jason found blogging too time-consuming and ineffective, but he did tweet regularly to a large following.
Our vision was to build a website around Jason's Twitter presence. The website automatically uploads any tweet that contains a video or photo, meaning Jason doesn't have to waste time fiddling with a content management system. Twitter is the content management system.
Using Twitter in this way also means the website remains constantly up-to-date. This is most evident on the homepage, which is made up of the last ten images Jason has tweeted on a slider.
Visitors can access all of Jason's images on a live feed page, which acts like a living scrapbook of all of Jason's updates. Clicking on an image or video enlarges it and enables you to read the accompanying tweet and reply or retweet it.
Our solution for Jason Bradbury both fits in with his lifestyle and reflects the man himself. Technologically advanced, up to date and cool, the new website offers visitors something innovative and provides Jason with a website that's not just easy to manage, but also fun.
