New Derwent website sees traffic soar

Before the launch of its new website, Derwent Students, a leading provider of student accommodation across the UK, was receiving around 2,000 visitors a month to its site. After the relaunch in February this rocketed to over 31,000 in the space of only a couple of months.

Headland worked with Rizk McKay to design a brand new site that showcases the accommodation and services offered by Derwent Students, allowing students to search, book and pay for accommodation in cities across the UK.

Our developers built a fully responsive site using a combination of the Zurb foundation framework, SASS (syntatically awesome stylesheets) and the Umbraco CMS. The site offers tailored content for students at different stages of their student experience.

Not only does the new site look great, but it is incredibly easy to use and the search engines love it.
