Content management system not required!

I’m currently working on two projects that don’t require a content management system (CMS). This is a very rare situation for me. The majority of work I typically take on requires a CMS, be it WordPress, Statamic or something else. That’s just how demand is at the moment, and that’s totally fine. However when the opportunity arises, and if the project is a good fit, then I’m always keen to seize the chance to work without one.

It may sound counter intuitive, but I find working without a CMS is a great way to get back to basics. To be able to focus on the HTML, CSS and JavaScript with non of the overheads a CMS brings to the table. There’s a certain purity about this approach and it makes me very happy. More often than not these tend to be my favourite projects.
