HappenStance PressHappenStance Press

Award-winning poetry publisher HappenStance sells its publications all over the world, and needed a site with both full ecommerce capability and a membership control component to run its 'HappenStance Subscriber' scheme.

We built the first HappenStance site back in 2005 and have continued to maintain and update it through many incarnations over the last decade. Today it is one of our busiest sites. A recent addition is the bi-monthly prize quiz, with entries taken via an online form and emailed automatically to the administrator.

Mother's Milk BooksMother's Milk Books

Mother's Milk Books publishes high-quality, beautiful books for adults and children. Having previously run separate shop and blog sites, the client's requirement was for a single site that integrated these functions. We were able to provide a site incorporating both ecommerce and blog components, and additional features include a Twitter feed displaying the press's latest tweets on the home page and a countdown module promoting the press's annual competition, the Mother's Milk Writing Prize.
