Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford
The Blavatnik School of Government in Oxford was set up in 2010 to inspire and support better government and public policy around the world. From its home in the awe inspiring, mirrored building in Oxford, it takes a cross-disciplinary approach to teaching current and future leaders.
A new design inspired by the wonderful building and the school's values of openness and collaboration
University faculty, department or institute
Faculties, departments and institutes have diverse user groups and complex navigational needs.
At the heart of the Blavatnik’s mission are the values of openness, collaboration and transparency. The architectural genius of the building allows these values to be physically represented in every inch of the school for the students and staff to experience, and for the world to see.
This is an important place. As well as the Master of Public Policy programme, the school is home to many important research groups and projects.
Our brief was to undertake a complete rebuild of the website and to reflect the new size and scope of school. Our main challenge was to work out how best to display the large volume and scope of content to be included in the site. We set about designing a robust structure for each page to ensure that information was presented in a way that was beautiful, but easy for the user to navigate, digest and act upon.
The design of the site itself was naturally inspired by the building and the school’s values of openness and collaboration. As with all of the websites we build, we ensured that it was easy for the content owners at the Blavatnik to keep up to date and flexible enough to adapt to their future needs.

Highly respected and looking to attract the very brightest students from around the world, we developed a website which served multiple audiences, carried large amounts of content and required a complex navigational journey taking the user to other linked websites and back to the main site.
Highly respected across the globe, the Oxford Department of International Development is ranked top of its game for research excellence. They needed a technically brilliant, multi-functional website to enable course bookings, present research findings and publications as well as display the profiles of academics and researchers.
Building a more sustainable future for journalism, Reuters came to us for our deep expertise in Drupal. They were struggling to get the best out of their website but didn’t want a complete re-build. Instead, we collaborated closely with them, enhancing their website step-by-step.
