I created Hook & Catch as the thesis project of my MA in Multimedia Journalism. As an emerging journalism project, I was required to produce a longform piece of journalism and build the website around it.

The website was coded by hand with HTML, CSS, and some Javascript. I also designed all of the graphics that appear on the website, primarily with Photoshop.

The piece itself required interviews with around 10 of the UK’s top professional wrestlers from England, Canada, the US, and Australia. Over 200 fans were also surveyed for their thoughts on British wrestling.

The project was supervised by Dr. David Dunkley Gyimah and received a distinction.
