New website, designed by an artificial intelligence engine

Low cost website built by robots

A new website for Andrew Cheetham

Low cost website built by robots

This is our first website using The Grid, an automated website building system based on an artificial intelligence engine that specialises in providing a page layout and design that suits the images.

Automating layout is an affordable option
All The Grid requests is the content, it provides all the layout. It takes a moment to adjust to the idea that you can't "just shift that left a little" (you can request The Grid to rethink the whole design until you get one you like), but in taking away that whole area of decision making, it makes websites quick and easy to build. All we have to do is upload the content.

Of course, we're not saying that content is either cheap or insignificant in terms of importance or development cost, but where you have existing content in an old-style desktop-only website, this is one way forward (although we might argue that if the content is that old, it needs a revamp too).
