Good Imprint is much occupied in the design and implementation of websites, large and small, supplying to clients in the academic, arts, consumer magazine, industrial design, charity and consumer electronics worlds. Good Imprint specialises in 'clean', functionally elegant websites that are inviting to look at, informative and quick to display.
Options include database-driven pages using MySQL with PHP, an approach conferring many advantages, not least the option of including a sophisticated, in-house developed content management system that enables the client to use a standard web browser to add pages or to update or delete existing material. Most of the sites shown in the Portfolio below are configured in this way.
