Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge
Fitzwilliam College Cambridge was founded in 1869 and warmly welcomes an international community of 750 students to develop and fulfil their potential. The backdrop is a beautiful site which combines Cambridge tradition with outstanding modern architecture all nestled within outstanding gardens. Often described as one of Cambridge’s best kept secrets, Fitzwilliam’s motto is ‘the best of the old and new’ and this was certainly true of our very first project with them back in 2014.
College websites have multiple audiences each with specific needs and a wealth of information to display
Our brief was to upgrade Fitzwilliam’s existing content management system, migrating all of the content onto a new platform, keeping the overall design, but adapting it to be responsive to meet the needs of users. We worked in partnership with Fitzwilliam’s in-house web developer and provided training on Drupal as well as ongoing advice to enable them to get the very best out of the site.
In 2017, we were asked to work on a second project. Fitzwilliam were expanding their digital offering and looking at how to best promote their conference services online. We worked with them to explore the market, looking at how other venues were promoting themselves and considered how best to position Fitzwilliam’s offering. The result was the development of a dedicated events site with a clear target audience, focused information and sleek navigation and booking ability.
With two successful project collaborations behind us, we moved onto a third brief. We've worked on a redevelopment of the college website in partnership with a local Cambridge design agency. This is a very exciting project and one we were delighted to work on.
