BA 3D Design: Idea Material Object

Just a quick update on the work for Bath Spa University’s School of Art and Design. In the 8 weeks since the site went live has been at the core of the drive to raise awareness of the new BA course, featuring links to Open Days and UCAS fairs and driving traffic to and from the Facebook page. We’ve monitored usage of the site, and optimised the content to ensure key information is seen, and given feedback about who has viewed the site following mailouts to ensure the target audience has been reached.

The keywords representing the course; idea material object; now return the top three results on a Google search and the course features on the first page when searching for BA three dimensional design (09 Dec 09).

news update

Northumbria University

Currently busy with a site for Northumbria University’s School of Design which is a little beyond the usual, collaboration is the focus of the site with registered users having access to distinct designated areas. A mix of video and image based content, taking advantage of WordPress threaded comment structure and allow discussion and review of work.

Much of the work on the site is invisible since it’s aimed at making adding content is as easy as writing an email. Primarily for use by students the site has an enhanced version for viewing on, and contributing from, an iPhone or iPod Touch.

We’re presently testing out the site, which should go live within the next month.
