I was wondering if your students are able to set up a website for my father’s business. He’s been in the game for over 30 years, but has never really had a decent website. I know students help the community to gain experience and for course work etc, so I was wondering if a media student would be able to help design a website for us.
My father will never get round to asking, so I’m asking on his behalf.

The current site is http://www.gloslifestyles.co.uk/ They require a CMS so they can easily edit the content, and easy to navigate website for people with disabilities to use. Wordpress might be the ideal platform for this with a custom theme using “doors” as the navigation theme for the site whereby users can click or the doors and be redirected to the relevant page. In terms of Aesthetics they would like to use blues similar to how it is currently and clear writing to make it easy for people to use ie: accessibility and SEO are important.
They can afford to pay: £150 Contact Simon (email@example.com)

I am a film lecturer on Park Campus and I need to make a 20 minute (or less) trailer about a comedy web series and it requires a web designer to help with promotion. If this gets commissioned – as an idea – then it might lead to work (on the web series). I know I’d certainly push for this.
Are you a keen, talented and dedicated student who might want to work with me to design an interface for this work? I am happy to meet up at Park to explain a little about what I do, this is my staff profile: http://insight-dev.glos.ac.uk/academicschools/dcmp/staffprofiles/Pages/RACHELTILLOTSON.aspx and this is my own website: http://racheltillotson.com/
