Ultimate website launch checklist

Digital & Online

When we launched the National Screen Institute website back in June 2007 there was a huge hunk of work that went before. It’s a super busy time and inevitably things get missed. I’m entirely self-taught when it comes to website development and had only myself to rely upon – we worked with a brilliant bunch at Tactica but even they can only do so much.
