Hurrah! Today sees the launch of the super-usable, beautifully designed new website for Preston’s College. Even we’re amazed at what can be achieved in a 10-week turnaround! It has been an intensive collaboration of web designers, developers, usability experts and the internal team and the results look great.

The brief once more (for a simple, well optimised website that was easy to update and develop internally) drove us to a WordPress platform. Investigation into user experience showed us that search was key. The target audience of 15-18 year olds want to find what they’re looking for quickly. If they can’t, they’ll go elsewhere. Naturally it was also important for the site to be dynamic so that it works well on mobile devices and in iOS.

The site is currently being launched in its first phase. Development will continue behind the scenes at a fast pace until we have created what we truly believe will be the UK’s most pioneering site for Further Education.
