When www.tedpolhemus.com first launched in 1994 it was designed by Andrew Colquhoun of Asociacián Livemedia and stood the test of time remarkably well. How many websites can say that? But wanted to add picture galleries and a section of stories which I could change myself. And it was brought to my attention that modern websites need to be made suitable for viewing on smart phones (something which were science fiction when this website first appeared).
So in September 2015 I asked two friends from two separate continents to rethink www.tedpolhemus.com. This new exciting beauty has graphic design and styling by Belen Asad of Buenos Aires and website design and hosting by Vicky Jones of Bexhill, UK . A splendid job I hope you will agree.
