BBC News Online


Role: Creative director

I was the ‘creative director’ of a very small team of designers and front-end coders for the launch of BBC News Online in 1997. I went on to build up a team of editorial and web designers, and redesign the site twice in response to technical advances and BBC branding refreshes. You can read more about the early days of one of the web’s biggest news sources on The Register, and my version of events hereā€¦
