Meet the American Who Designed North Korea's Atrocious Website

By Mario Aguilar on at

Just yesterday we learned that North Korea paid only ten quid for its website. Now we get the reaction of Robert Westmore, the unwitting man behind the design.

Westmore, a former "senior web designer," told that he had no idea North Korea was using his work, but he's certainly not complaining.

"As a web designer I'm always happy to see my work getting utilised," Westmore, who spent several months of development on the theme, told "Especially when it's on a high-profile website."

I suppose that's fair enough. But knowing the United States, Westmore better not be trying to land any government contracts anytime soon. He's probably already on a blacklist. []
