XJTLU is the largest international joint venture university in China. Their previous web presence comprised seven disparate websites. We completely re-architected and redesigned them into one cohesive, striking design to attract students from across the globe. We introduced a brand new CMS platform and overcame the technical challenges of serving content from within China to the rest of the world.
The Children's Hospital Charity
Making it better for the Children's Hospital
One of only four dedicated children’s hospitals in the UK, the Children’s Hospital in Sheffield is a centre of excellence for paediatric care locally, nationally and internationally. The Children’s Hospital Charity aims to “make our hospital even better” by raising vital funds for life-saving equipment, research and treatment. We completely redesigned their website to inspire the public to fundraise, donate and understand the impact the charity makes.
Making it easy to blog for millions
Zoella is one of the world’s most famous YouTubers, with over 12 million subscribers, two best-selling books, and an army of loyal fans. We redesigned her official website and blog, and built a technical platform resilient enough to handle the vast numbers of people who read every post.
4Creative & Channel 4
Making Synths come to life
Channel 4’s sci-fi drama Humans is set in an alternative reality where synthetic humans (or “Synths”) carry out all mankind’s menial tasks, from household chores to farming. We worked with 4Creative over two series to create the website for the fictional corporation from the show, as a key part of a hugely successful multiplatform marketing campaign.
Channel 4 & Arrow Media
Making outer space feel closer to home
Live from Space was the first documentary broadcast live from the International Space Station. We worked with the production company to help share the human stories of the people inside the space suits. We created a whole universe of original online content, which captured the audience’s attention and fed into the TV show. This included live tracking of the ISS, and an online game which was recreated and played in space for real by NASA’s astronauts.
Making employees healthier and happier
Juice allows organisations to develop health, fitness and wellbeing programmes to provide staff an enjoyable, accessible, measurable, and flexible way to get fit, keep fit and take part. A dynamic, engaging interface allows people to learn about health and wellbeing, book onto and keep a record of activities, chart progress and rate activities they take part in.
Channel 4 & Maverick TV
Making mental health a primetime topic
We worked in collaboration with Maverick TV to produce eight interactive tests for traits of mental health conditions, which formed an integral part of Embarrassing Bodies: Live From The Clinic. Viewers were invited to take part as they watched the show, and the nation’s results revealed at the end. The data gathered went on to be analysed by academic researchers, increasing science’s understanding of these conditions.
Our Favourite Places
Making arts & culture easy to find
Our Favourite Places (OFP) began as printed publication by design agency Eleven Design. It set out to promote and celebrate the independent and unique side of Sheffield’s culture, music and food. We worked with them to produce a beautifully designed online version, as a home to reviews, guides and listings.
