Project Background

The University contacted us in 2011 to request the development of a website for their large blogging community. Our brief was to provide a space for selected students, parents, academics and faculty staff members to blog about their experiences. The platform had to to be simple enough to allow content to be published with minimum instruction, yet flexible enough to accommodate a large range of content. With this is mind we set to work developing the site.
