New website for Diane Abbott MP
Diane Abbott MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington made history in 1987 by becoming the first black woman ever elected to the British Parliament. She has since built a distinguished career as a parliamentarian, broadcaster and commentator and recently been awarded winner of the Human Rights Award 2008 and Spectator Speech of the Year Award 2008.
It was therefore always going to be a challenge to construct a website that could even begin to communicate the personality and views of such a distinguished individual. However as some of our clients like to remind us from time to time, HBR do like a challenge.
While you might expect that one MP’s website would be much the same as the next, at HBR we don't like to repeat ourselves. So yes we deliver the core functionality that would be expected and then topping it up with what-ever individual features have been requested and packing it all up with an design to suit the individuals personality and taste.
Whether we’ve actually managed to deliver this with Diane’s website really isn’t for us to say, but working with Diane and her team, we think that we’ve delivered a website that is fresh and engaging, with a bold use of colour that’s not usually found in an MP’s website.
