As editor of theNBS.com from 2015 to 2018, Richard was responsible for commissioning, editing and writing much of the content you see on the site.

These include sites on higher education policy, a tourist information site for a museum, a brochure site for an international street theatre festival, the complete teardown of a local authority's web presence and the redevelopment of theNBS.com with our relaunched site going live in January 2016.
