Tainted Love Diary

I don't know that a look for a site ever came to me as quickly as it did for this client.
After reading the chapter samples for this then-forthcoming book, the idea for the writer's desk and open diary came to me almost instantly.
The good news is that the author liked it as much as I did (there isn't much more discouraging than when you think you have a great idea and the client hates it).
We ended up going with IFRAMES to control the size and scope of the content windows because the look really required it.
There is an extensive content management componant to this site as well that allows the client to communicate with an email list, edit the guestbook if need be and post content to any page on the site. Most importantly, the client has also been saavy enough to realize that having this ability is only half the battle - and actually utilizes it often. She uses the site as a ket part of her guerilla marketing plan and does so very effectively.
