Characterful site for a comedy drama writer

The Client

Charlotte O’Leary is a comedy drama writer for theatre, TV and film. She approached Pilcrow + Pixel looking to have a site created with a vivid, characterful look and feel to promote her work. It also needed to be quick and easy for her to maintain and add new content.

I’m absolutely thrilled with the site Pilcrow + Pixel have created for me. The whole process has been incredibly easy: I explained what I needed from the site and Vaughan was able to come up with suggestions and advice on what would work best. He always keeps usability in mind, too. The site has been set up in WordPress – although you’d never know from looking at it – and it’s extremely simple for me to make adjustments to the content as and when I need to. As a writer it’s important for me to have a site that not only reflects my brand but is also a great place for potential clients to download my scripts and short films, and he’s managed to pack all that into a site that’s tremendous fun to use.

The Project

Charlotte had already commissioned some wonderfully colourful, hand-drawn illustrations from Uberpup, and these are a central design motif of the site both on the portfolio-style homepage and as full-width headers across the site’s sections.

Behind the scenes, the WordPress interface has been thoroughly overhauled via the use of Advanced Custom Fields, enabling Charlotte to update pages displaying her work by simply filling in a few fields.
