We needed to communicate more clearly with our potential students. Our backend systems for updates were slow and inefficient.

Colours with meaning

Colours showcase the broad areas of education, and diverse paths of progression, available.

The design is youthful and vibrant. Custom CSS variables give each course category its own unique identity. This will translate from the website through to printed promotional material like the prospectus, banners, poster and flyers. The outcome creates stronger brand recognition, and easier segmenting of relevant areas of study for prospective students.

Improved load times by 87-95%

The previous website slow as a snail, taking approx. 8-20 seconds to load. The new site loads in less than 1 second.

Our in-house framework, Imperium, is lightning fast. It’s a fully bespoke framework coded from the ground up. Imperium CSS style sheet is approx. Smaller than a typical Bootstrap style sheet.

Liberties College moved to our Hostbox platform, built specifically to produce fast, GDPR compliant WordPress websites.

Forget Photoshop and Future-proof

Sirv image CDN was integrated into the entire website. This service resizes images on the fly for mobile, tablet, desktop and even high resolution retina screens – eliminating the need for staff to have image editing (Photoshop) skills.

Site load time are improved – as Sirv reduces image file sizes, and lazy loads images on screen as users scroll down the page.

In the future, if a page layout changes – Sirv will automatically adjust the image to fit the new layout.

Dave knows his stuff and used clear communication, definite goals and expert guidance. The new website is excellent and received universal positive feedback from the staff and students.
