"Hope is the fuel of progress"

Nicol Wistreich

Slow down & try to fix stuff

Full-stack non-dev

(ie research/copy/video/project-management/UX/UI/css/cpanel/drupal/joomla/wordpress/civicrm/creative)

Marketing & Analysis

Mission & goal-focused development strategy, including user profiles, market analysis & service/system mapping. Conceived & developed the Virtuous Circle model with SDI.

Design, UX, CSS & implementation

Analysis-informed user journeys and wireframes, prototypes and designs through to implemented & tested mobile-responsive & accessible themes & layouts

Copy, editing & print

From snappy web copy and content strategy to essays and print publication layout. Five books & hundreds of articles & blogs published both online and off, from The Times to Adbusters.

Video & events

From the launch party for Hewlett Packard's double Cannes Lion winning HyPe Gallery, to YouTube channels, insider docs & mass charity web virals, if I can't make it – one of my network probably can.
