the client

For over 30 years, Oxford Innovation has been building and running outstanding Innovation Centres, creating and supporting jobs and opportunities, forging stronger communities and growing local economies across the UK. Oxford Innovation has given business support to over 7,500 growing SMEs to bring new sustainable and innovative products, services and processes to the market.

the brief

Each of Oxford Innovation’s 26 centres has its own website, but the design and content had become outdated. The team at Oxford Innovation felt they needed a refresh of the whole suite of sites to reflect its current style and values, as well as meet the requirements of internal and external stakeholders, including trusts and boards associated with each region. This would involve creating 26 new websites that all aligned with its unique branding. They also wanted a new modern and professional corporate site for its head office, targeting both public and private clients.

It also needed complementary websites to be built and maintained for its newly acquired sites as the need for Oxford Innovation grew across the country.

the result

may held workshops with initial sites to understand each centre, and our creative team crafted a full design for the first site. Each of the sites that followed were based on this template giving an economy of scale and benefited from customised features, design and copy to suit the branding and personality of each individual centre. A bespoke corporate site showcasing its services and case studies was also created.

We continue to work closely with Oxford Innovation, providing website maintenance and optimisation across all of its existing sites, in addition to building and developing websites for each new centre that Oxford Innovation manages.

may are a delight to work with, the whole team really understand how Oxford Innovation and our Innovation Centres operate. They are like an extra addition to our team and provide us with great support and creative ideas to help push our projects further. Over the years may have worked with us on many website builds (26 and counting!), but also on copy, online design, and SEO work. Projects are always approached with enthusiasm and a focus to deliver on time and within an agreed budget. We highly recommend the fabulous team of may.
