Old Hall Strip
Old Hall Strip is a comic strip appearing weekly in Englands biggest regional newspaper, the Liverpool Echo. Creator and Illustrator Ilan Sheady required a website to promote the comic, archive strips and encourage more letters and emails from the local community.
Bill Mitchel and Natalie Wood are the fictional main characters of the strip and from the start were the focal point of the site. It was important to convey each of their personalities and mannerisms, along with the comics tone of voice and it’s mandate to help promote community events.
The site was designed and built on the wordpress cms system and allows Ilan to update the site via desktop or mobile. The style of the site references old newspapers, relying on a simple layout and typography.
