University of Derby’s Oaklands Manor website Goes Live

Climing at Oaklands ManorOaklands Manor - the University of Derby's outdoor leadership centre in Buxton - has just launched its new website.

Set in the heart of the Peak District, the venue offers education providers and commercial organisations outdoor activity packages and qualifications. It is a unique facility owned by the University of Derby and near Buxton College.

Fig Creative, the High Peak’s well known design and marketing agency had worked with the University of Derby Buxton’s marketing team to develop the iconic branding for the outdoor leadership centre.

Beverley Cooke, Marketing Manager at University of Derby Buxton said, “It was important that the new Oaklands Manor logo worked alongside the University of Derby’s existing branding whilst at the same time had its own distinct identity to enable us to promote the extensive facilities to a wider audience, which was quite a tricky brief. We were delighted with the branding options Fig Creative presented to us and they’ve since helped us work up all the initial marketing materials for the official opening of the leadership centre.”

The new Oaklands Manor website went live early January 2013, designed and built by Fig Creative. Business Development Director, Martin Duncan said, “It’s been a fantastic project to work on, we’ve really enjoyed seeing Oaklands Manor come to life. Having a team of different skilled professional’s works really well on such a project and all our skills were used. From marketing, as we had to consider all the different audiences the website had to engage, to design and messaging, getting the look and feel of the copy right, to web development, ensuring good usability and training Oaklands Manor staff how to update the site going forward.”

Beverley Cooke continued, “Fig Creative completed the web project in tight timescales and it really does look great. It’s a real showcase for the outdoor leadership centre and means we can now actively promote its facilities. It’s such an amazing venue and this is great news for the University of Derby, Buxton and the High Peak. I’m sure it will draw attention from many different groups and organisations from right across the UK to experience its unique facilities.”
