Website design and development
We were approached by the Ensemble team to produce a Wordpress website for their newly founded initiative. The main aim of the website was to promote and disseminate their world-class research to the public in an accessible way.
The project is named Ensemble as it brings together a diverse spectrum of people covering a large amount of disciplines. Therefore, an important part of the website was to allow people to see the many people and projects involved in Ensemble through an intuitive web design.
Ensemble is a cross disciplinary research programme based at Lancaster University. Their goal is to carry out world leading research in the role of digital technologies and the natural environment, including environmental change. We created a clean and professional website for Ensemble, showcasing their team members and their projects they work on. The website includes a filterable section for their various research outputs and a blog.
The Ensemble team made it clear they needed to manage the content on the website themselves, so we developed bespoke modules to manage their blog posts, pages, people, projects and research outputs. We developed a bespoke theme using Wordpress and removed as much ‘bloat’ as possible from the CMS, whilst still give the team the control they required whilst keeping the website looking sharp, professional and consistent all in-house.
