The OUCS Web Design Consultancy (WDC) provides support for web design activities across the University. Our aim is to help ensure that Oxford-affiliated websites are attractive, usable, fit-for-purpose, and that they adhere to the rules concerning Oxford University websites, in particular the University's Web accessibility standards.
We have many years experience of designing, developing and managing web-based projects across the University; we're here to share that expertise.
The WDC offers free advice on web design best practice. The WDC can meet with clients to discuss their requirements, clarify the scope of a project and advise on strategies for meeting those requirements. If you are thinking of developing or redesigning a University website, we'd be happy to speak to you. We can offer informal advice by phone or email, or arrange a meeting for a more detailed discussion of your project. We can provide an initial consultancy meeting (c. 1hour) and a follow-up meeting (c. 30 minutes) free of charge, after which we reserve the right to charge for our time.
The WDC undertakes web design and development projects on a charged basis. The WDC aims to provide cost-effective web design solutions where units do not have the in-house skills to meet such needs. As such, charges are levied on a not-for-profit basis.
