Website Design & Development


The Challenge

Podium is the Further and Higher Education Unit for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Swerve was asked to create a Podium website which reflected their aim of using the power of the 2012 Games to engage students and young people in the benefits of sport.

The Execution

The Podium website was instrumental in building a buzz amongst students for the 2012 Games. In the first 18 months Podium posted over 230 job opportunities, promoted 200 events and published 430 news items. Podium found our system so intuitive they refused our offer of free training.

The Solution

In response we produced the Podium website to resonate with Podium’s target audience. Visitors are provided with the opportunity to download resources and share their news, events and experiences of the Podium programme. This allows the site to be used as a hub for sharing and collaboration.

Project Features

  • Users can download resources
  • Bespoke content management system
  • Hub for sharing and collaboration
  • Includes key educational messages

“Swerve have been very helpful and approachable throughout the process of building a new website. The designs provided were well developed according to the brief and had ease of user navigation very much in mind. The content management system is extremely simple - I highly recommend it.”
