Queen Margaret University

Website design & build in Umbraco CMS

The challenge

Queen Margaret University Edinburgh approached us to help them develop a new, modern, responsive and business appropriate website that represented their core vision of being a university of ideas and influence.

The solution

We worked with the University over an initial period of 18 months to undertake an extensive piece of research so that we had a full understanding and validation of all of the requirements.

Alongside this research, design and brand principles were developed and new photography commissioned. Following a POC and final agreement on a statement of work the Umbraco build began in earnest.

  • Built in Umbraco
  • Extensive user research
  • Quality use of tagging
  • Integration with external content sources

The results

A clean, fresh site with a strong information architecture, bright photography and positive content that is a true representation of what the University is about.

  • Successful and positive launch
  • A solid platform for future development
  • Works successfully across all mobile devices
The QMU site has a clean fresh design, improved functionality and enhanced rich content focused on the client’s vision to be a university of ideas and influence.
