Client SinceFebruary 2019
Richard Louv is a journalist and author of ten books, including Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle, and co-founder of the Children & Nature Network. His work has helped launch an international movement to connect children, families and communities to nature.
Richard is a good example of the kind of client Hop Studios set out to serve when we started the company in 2001—creative folks who want a high-quality website where the focus is on content. Everyone needs a website these days, but they require expertise in a lot of different areas, from Google AdWords to content management systems, to branding, 404 pages, user experience… the list goes on and on. It’s a lot of learning for anyone, much less for an author who already has an extensive set of work commitments and a busy schedule. And while we are more than happy to write code, we at Hop Studios get a real kick about being able to fill in the gaps when it comes to expertise and strategic planning.
We’ve assisted Richard with adding his latest book to his website, and behind the scenes we’re helping figure out the best technical direction for the site’s creator and audience. Should we upgrade the existing content management system, or migrate to one that might be easier to use? Are the server and hosting set up properly? What if the goal is to simplify? It’s a pleasure to assist with questions like this, and the many other tiny technical details that are part of running a website.
