We had a filing cabinet stuffed with irreplaceable black/white photographic prints of my father's designs and an urgent need for digital images to supply to the Press. Wilhelmina swiftly found an excellent archive photographer, built a dedicated website, and created cataloguing systems. Soon the digital archive of the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation was up and running.
Wilhelmina combines highly sophisticated technical know-how with shrewd understanding of an organisation’s unique requirements – and the ability to explain things clearly.

Wilhelmina worked with me on re-designing my website and has produced a visually satisfying and easily navigable model. I wanted it to be both an archive and an unfolding overview of recent and current work and she has produced a design that fulfils this extremely well whilst at the same time being easily manageable for updating.
Painter John Keane explores some of the most difficult contemporary subjects: political themes, international conflict and the aftermath of religious terrorism. He came to Bound Book through a recommendation, when he started having difficulties with his existing “static” website. The site still functioned, but he was unable to update anything because the technology had become outdated. An added complication was that he did not have a dedicated update system for the site; he was editing the raw html pages and uploading them directly with ftp, which invited all sorts of mistakes!
I visited him in his London studio and we worked together to completely redesign the site. He preferred to keep a simple style of webpages which display images, videos and texts one after another. I added to this a responsive layout which works elegantly on hand-held devices (phones), and some rigorous paring down of image sizes for a faster-loading site.
I also built a bespoke “Content Management” system so that he can make regular updates without getting involved with any of the back-end code. As John Keane is a prolific artist and likes to document his studio process as well as the finished paintings, there were hundreds of existing images and captions that I needed to process in Photoshop and transcribe to the new database. Now the site is up and running though, new material is automatically resized during the uploading process.

Wil designed our Printmakers online Gallery Originals Inprint in November 2011.
She is absolutely great to work with and is always there to support me when needed.
I have learnt so much about updating our website over the years and that’s been all down to Wil.

It was my luck to work as a tutor with Wil when she was a gifted post-graduate student at the Royal College of Art. The moment I heard she was designing websites I asked her to do mine, perhaps it was one the first? Ten years ago.
I wanted clarity above all, no tricks. An easily navigable site that puts the work first.
She delivered exactly that. I continue with her and Bookbound for all web related advice. She never fails.
Wilhelmina has carried out work for me over the past ten years.
Initially designing, and then, from time to time making changes and additions to my web site.
Her knowledge and experience in IT systems is extensive. And her skill in designing and building web sites is great.
I have always found her approach very professional, practical and helpful and I would recommend her for her expertise and all her commendable qualities as designer, IT expert, and business woman.
