Re-imagining a heritage University through cutting edge design
- “Our experience with Roundhouse Digital was very positive. They showed a distinctive flair for web design, and their experience of front end development for TerminalFour proved invaluable. The Roundhouse team communicated well with us throughout the project, and from the outset took care to understood our needs. The result is a striking and responsive design that communicates the unique attributes of Aberystwyth University."Simon Marshall, Web Development Officer
Contemporary Design For A Heritage University
Aberystwyth University approached Roundhouse Digital with the objective of creating a more approachable and modern website, targeted primarily at prospective students but appealing to a broad range of audience groups. We created an evolutionary design by moving away from a tight box layout, and developed design components which work well in combination to make the site feel more professional and contemporary; which sat on their version of the TERMINALFOUR CMS.
Comprehensive Content Management System
Our design maximises potential by using the latest front end techniques, but also acts sympathetically to the existing content types. The result is a site which feels modern and user-friendly, with clear calls to action and logically structured content. Course pages have been transformed, bringing life to the pages which highlight the rich educational experience on offer to students.
Honing The Strengths Of The University
Our aim was to make the site feel warm and friendly, and to focus on teaching excellence. As a University awarded for recognising environmental beauty and the strengths of the community, we highlighted these aspects with the use of strong typographical infographics and high quality photography. An additional consideration was ensuring our designs would work effectively with Welsh language.
