Hiba Ali is an artist, writer, and scholar who’s work research follows the flows of a precarious labor, migratory experiences, and experimental music. As a doctorate student with frequent publications and exhibitions, Hiba found her website difficult to update and the presentation constrictive to her current content.

Hiba Ali Website Writing Page
The Writings page uses a Masonry, card-based layout for quick scanning.

Since the needs of Hiba’s website were straightforward, I created the website using Grav which helped maintain desired simplicity. Consequently, Hiba and I had ample time to focus on the site’s overall look and feel and conducting training on how to make updates and changes. What I found most notable were the speedy page load times which were consistently between 300ms and 600ms thanks to the speed advantages offered by the flat file CMS.
