Shakespeare Collected was commissioned jointly by University of Edinburgh> and the National Library of Scotland to make available online their unique collection of early Shakespeare folios and quartos.
Mark Haddon Ltd was also asked to develop a parallel interpretive/educational aspect of the site that would allow visitors to find out about the early collectors who had contributed to the collection and provide an interactive feature that was intended to reflect early 'scrapbook' style collecting techniques.
"Mark Haddon grasped the brief very quickly, and was able to convert our sometimes sketchy ideas into clearly worked out plans within a short space of time. He fulfilled all commitments and requirements promptly and according to the agreed timetable, and he ensured that all our technical and design requirements were ably met. We were very happy indeed with his management and implementation of the project".
James Loxley, Professor of Early Modern Literature, University of Edinburgh
"We were delighted with the visual and interactive treatment Mark provided on the 'Getting Started with Shakespeare' website. We have very specific requirements for our sites so it's essential for us to work with someone who can provide a tailor-made and collaborative approach. Mark provided this and we have been very pleased with the results".
