Knowing what's important
Beautiful Design & Information Architecture
Your research deserves a platform where complexity meets clarity, and that’s where our expertise shines. Our agency crafts websites with beautiful, human-centred designs that prioritise the user experience. We meticulously structure information architecture to ensure that your audience can navigate through vast research data with ease, allowing for an intuitive journey that aligns with the way users think and work.
Website Accessibility & WCAG Compliance
In a world where inclusivity can no longer be an afterthought, our websites stand as paragons of accessibility. We rigorously adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), ensuring that your website is accessible to all, including those with disabilities. By embracing WCAG compliance, we not only open your research to a wider audience but also affirm your commitment to inclusivity and legal compliance.
Robust Security with Hosting and Support
The security of your data is paramount, especially in the field of research. Our web development services extend beyond design and functionality, incorporating robust security measures that protect your institution’s valuable work. With secure hosting and ongoing support, we offer peace of mind, safeguarding your content against digital threats and ensuring your online presence is reliable and trustworthy.
