Debbie Castle, University Nursery, April 2023
The team (especially Julie) were very professional and super-helpful. They gave us lots of good advice, helped to fix myriad website problems and issues and were very patient when we were sometimes unsure of what what we wanted / where we wanted to go. Nothing was too much trouble, and their efforts to deliver informative and timely advice, is to be commended. Many thanks!
Jayne Sweet, Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, April 2023
I want to say a huge thank you to Julie and Chris who have helped create a magnificent new homepage for IRRU. Julie is a joy to work with; she communicates at each stage, is responsive to my feedback and has the patience of a saint! Thank you Julie :-) Also, the components editor training was excellent and gave me the confidence to then build on the new homepage and recreate and upgrade all the existing sub-pages. We now have a website to really show off. Thank you for all of your help, Julie.
Louise Cullen, IRRU, WBS, March 2023
Being new to the role and having a tight deadline to refresh the webpages, Julie has been a great help. She has provided great support as well as advice and guidance and has always been on the end of an email if I was stuck - thank you so much!
Ria Wilson, Department of Physics, August 2021
Took a little longer than was optimal but the result is excellent and we are very happy.
Rebecca Vipond, Education, Director's Office, May 2021
It was a brilliant team to work with. I was especially impressed by the work of Julie and Chris in coming up with a design that would work best for our key concepts.
Ozlem Atikcan, Politics and International Studies, May 2021
Understood our time constraints. Clear communication. Additional work not charged.
Katherine Mayfield, Estates, May 2021
Julie was great in making suggestions on the project and executing the work - she was also incredibly patient in liaising with all the various stakeholders and addressing their needs - THANK YOU!
Letizia Gramaglia, WIHEA, Academic Development Centre, April 2021
Julie was great on this project, so helpful and the design team did such a great job on the design of the front page. Julie was able to process the project really efficiently and cannot thank Julie enough for all her help.
Lucy Goulding, Vice Chancellor's Office, March 2021
The refresh of the website design is just what we needed. It came about through a conversation regarding accessibility (as the old colours we were using weren't accessible), so IT Services suggested that one of their graphic designers could come up with some alternative designs for us that would meet accessibility guidelines. The results were great - we were given a few options to choose from and we went with the one that ties in with our brochure. The turn-around in terms of implementing the design was quick and we were also given the opportunity to flag any issues after the design had been implemented. Thanks again for your help with this :)
Jess Holt, Liberal Arts
It was a real pleasure working with Mona on this project. She did a great job striving to reproduce in html templates I sent in word documents, and always finding alternatives and solutions to problems we found and changes we wanted to make. Many thanks!
Santiago Oyarzabal, Library, June 2020
This has updated our old site very well - it now looks fresher and is adapted for the new research project.
Anne-Marie Brennan, WMS, Population, evidence & technology, Health Sci
The guidance and practical support provided by Julie Moreton really helped the smooth running of the project. The attention to detail, style and format ideas (including a new layout for the Online core training portal used across the university) really enhanced the development of the new site. Julie is a pleasure to work with.
Lisa Lavendar, Organisational Development, October 2019
As part of a new design for the doctoral college, Mona from the web team did an absolutely wonderful job and should be commended on her professionalism, communication, timeliness of design and guidance. At such a busy time of year Mona was always on hand with useful information as well as timely changes made, and we launched on time with a great new site. Mona is a great colleague and I can only thank her for her stellar work!
Tracy Horton, Academic Office, September 2019
Absolutely brilliant, we are extremely pleased with our new site.
Rebecca Vipond, Institute of Advanced Study, September 2019
