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.

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.
