What makes us different? Innovative web design, journalistic know-how and a greater understanding of what works on the web. And we are no faceless agency...
Clive Portman (aka Web)
Clive is the technical partner, although he prefers the title of Technical Guru. He's working hard on looking more geeky, but still no-one believes he's a developer when they meet him.
As well as building the sites, emails, content management systems and shopping carts, he's also pretty hot when it comes to search engine optimisation and visitor tracking.
What's he working towards? "Winning the Tour de France on a bike with no gears." Good luck with that...
Kate Portman (aka Pen)
As the creative partner, Kate's role is making things as difficult as possible for the other half. She's a great communicator and the partner you're most likely to see at networking events.
Kate designs the websites and emails, and looks after the copywriting side of the business. She's also a perfectionist, something left over from her editorial days.
What's her hidden talent? "Beat the intro with 80s Pop."
What's the story with the name?
Web & Pen is a play on the name of the famous Wig & Pen Club on Fleet Street, where journalists used to chat with lawyers straight out of the Royal Courts of Justice across the road.
The name reflects the relevance of traditional print journalism to the modern web.
Our ability to spot the story of a client's business means our websites offer clients' visitors a more compelling reason to take that next step, be it purchasing from a shopping cart, a greater awareness of a brand or that all important contact.
