We were approached by the client to design and develop a website from scratch. Wisden had no web presence, but is an established almanack that has often been described as the “bible of cricket”. The site had to reflect Wisden’s status as one of the sport’s literature giants, with the publication first being printed in 1864, but also had to bring it to the 21st century with state-of-the art stats modules and simple yet elegant user experience.
We have been able to approach the design and development of this site with a great deal of expertise and confidence due in part to the encyclopaedic cricket knowledge of our digital director, Allan. His knowledge of the sport has allowed us to design and develop powerful stats modules that deal with a huge amount of intricate cricket data, with a view to helping Wisden compete with the likes of ESPN cricinfo.
