CLIENT: Philip Ball, freelance science writer

Philip Ball is a freelance science writer. He worked previously at Nature for over 20 years. First as an editor for physical sciences (for which his brief extended from biochemistry to quantum physics and materials science) and then as a Consultant Editor. His writings on science for the popular press have covered topical issues ranging from cosmology to the future of molecular biology.


Philip needed one central place to store all his articles in document form, available to download. Displaying all his books and publications, news of upcoming talks and presentations. He wanted the ability to add all these items to the site himself when he found time in his busy schedule.


Simple airy design to not get too bogged down with text, Joomla! was used as the content management software. An extensive training ‘manual’ including screenshots was created specifically to the areas of administration he needed. This was all done via pdfs and email.
