Ruth’s Author Website
Ruth Hopkins – Investigative Journalist
About this project
Ruth’s an investigative journalist. She wanted a website to promote her latest book and film projects, and also present an archive of her published articles. We chose a strong two-colour combination, a clean style, and a clear structure for all her work that was easy to browse.
Ruth’s website is organised to prominently display her new book on the Home page, followed by a strip of the different categories her articles fall into. We then have a panel showing a selection of her latest articles and end with a signup form for her newsletter, and a display of her latest Tweets..
The internal pages display an archive of all her published articles, her Blog (short timely articles) and a News section containing her Twitter feed. There’s also a landing page for her book, with ordering information, and a page devoted to her film of the book. Her About page also contains a Contact form.
The website is hosted on a fast server in the UK and integrated with a CDN, to ensure her global visitors get a fast response wherever they’re located.
