Web design

We design, build and run
accessible, usable and reliable web sites.

Web design

We have substantial experience right across the spectrum of web development skills:

  • Involving end-users, and requirements elicitation
  • Design and branding
  • Information architecture
  • Content planning, production and editorial management
  • Promotion, hosting and evaluation.

Whether it’s a simple brochure site, a large repository or an interactive application;  a complete rebrand or an adaptation of an existing one, Minervation can put together the right team to deliver it on time and within budget.

Users on board

The best way to build an effective website is to put the user at the centre of the development process from the outset.  Our project managers can help you to bring them in on the process using research methods appropriate to your aims and your budget.

We believe that all websites need to be accessible, and can make sure that you meet the legal requirements with respect to W3C WAI criteria.

Your design, realised

We work with a broad team of freelance designers and design agencies who specialise in creating functional and engaging designs for digital content.

It’s not always about flaming logos and fancy animations. Specialist content needs a specialist eye to make sure that your messages are accessible to and usable by your audience, as in the ACAMH Topic Guides.

We can build on your existing design assets, or create a whole new visual brand identity, logo and online presence from scratch, as we did for the IDEAL Collaboration.

Your content, managed

WordPress is one of the leading content management systems in the world. It’s used on 15% of the top 1m websites because it’s free and it does everything you need from a web CMS.  We use it a lot because it’s stable, it comes with great functionality, and it can be customised easily.

Our team has extensive experience in building applications based on the WordPress CMS. We can also provide ongoing technical support to make sure that your website remains secure and up to date.

Your requirements, delivered

We also offer bespoke development services, allowing you to create a system that’s  specifically designed for your needs from the ground up.  Although this approach is probably more costly in the short term, bespoke systems can be easier to maintain in the long run.

We’ve got experience in areas as diverse as e-learning, patient information databases and web tools for the self-management of chronic conditions.

Robust and flexible platform

You’ll want your web site to evolve over time as your needs change, keeping pace with new technology, such as social media or web video. We can act as your technical partner to ensure that you’re not left behind.

Our clients include The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, The EQUATOR Network and the AGREE Enterprise.

  • An experienced team of designers, developers
  • Led by an experienced project manager
  • A system that meets the needs of your users
  • Delivered in a format that lets you get on with the job.
