The Spanner
November 2011

Taking its lead from the pamphlets and cartoons of Georgian London The Spanner is a small circulation, niche, intellectual broadsheet and needed a website to match.

Spanner works were looking for a website to publish articles from the newspaper and encourage people to pay for a physical subscription.

We set up simple article publishing, with intros available for free but we hid the complete articles behind a paywall. This meant potential subscribers could essentially sample the content to see if what was for them before committing to a 12-month subscription.

We set up a subscription management and login system for users, and payments were taken through Paypal.
