Brexit & Free Movement mini-site for Jean Lambert MEP

By Tim Reader, 23 June 2017

A year on, very pleased this week to have played a small part in something positive in response to the Brexit debacle – a mini-site on the work that Jean Lambert MEP is doing to protect the rights of EU nationals here and in Europe. Jean is amazing – one of politics’s many unsung heroes. […]

If you’re a young person, or have one in your life, the subject of intergenerational fairness is probably something on your mind. The Intergenerational Foundation exists to get a fairer deal for young people. […]

By Tim Reader, 6 November 2015

Having recently recognised that it makes increasing sense for Long White Digital to work with arts and music organisations (nearly half the team are accomplished musicians, some with one foot in the professional music world) it’s a delight to be appointed by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, more commonly simply the OAE, to […]

Apple’s inaccessible homepage

By Tim Reader, 27 January 2014

Case study: low-cost responsive website in 2 days

By Tim Reader, 18 January 2013

Bumblebee Learning approached Long White Digital on Wednesday last week to ask if we could turn around a website for them in 2 days on a budget of under £1,000. I should say first of all, we don’t generally go for these; it is actually so unrealistic that we would be sensible to run a […]
