Like the shop but spelt differently, Gary Powndland, whose popularity had taken off though a series of internet videos, was the first comedian to approach me to ask for help creating a website that he could use to promote an upcoming tour and to sell merchandise and personalised videos.
Gary and I had spoken a few years prior after I saw him at some local comedy clubs but the project as we discussed it at that time kind of fizzled out. In retrospect this was for the best because as this second attempt rolled around the Gary Powndland character (and related characters) had grown which meant there was more of an idea of what kind of approach the website needed to take. The idea of the site was to tie it in as much as possible to the characters and not try to present the most over the top polished website.
Again this website was a prime target for the WordPress Events Manager plugin which allowed for a tour list to be uploaded and maintained. This included show locations and links out to tickets. There was also a general integration of WooCommerce for the sale of general merchandise. Where I got to work on something different was the process of creating a product form that would capture data and pass it through when an order is placed which allowed Gary to sell personalised videos.
