You know that feeling when the morning walk to work is an absolute joy? Well, that’s what it’s been like for the last couple of months knowing I’m rocking up to create a website for one of the country’s best loved Comedians.
Sarah Millican has become a household name over the last few years, known for her sharp Geordie wit and down to earth charm. On the web, Sarah has a close bond with her fans; amassing over 500,000 followers on Twitter. These fans regularly interact with Sarah and are treated to stories from the road, cake shop recommendations and pictures of kittens (lots of pictures of kittens).
When it came to creating a website for Sarah, there were two main aims. Firstly, we wanted to create a website that truly reflected Sarah’s unique personality and style. Secondly, we wanted the site to do justice to the tireless effort Sarah makes to engage her fans.
The Kitten Needs His Own Page
As you can imagine, bouncing ideas around with a world class Comedian was nothing short of a hoot. With most clients, site development worklists read something like this:
- Ensure brand integrity across design
- Validate code
So it was incredibly refreshing to have a worklist that included:
- Add pictures of animals in clothes
- The kitten needs his own page
- Tell people not to upload any willies
On completion, we were delighted with the result and we were almost sad that the journey was over. Here are some of my personal favourite features:
I hope you enjoy visiting the new site as much as we did creating it. While you’re there make sure you buy a ticket to Sarah’s new tour, it’s going to be special.
