Two young Leeds based companies, Creode and Magpie Comms, have been awarded the contract for the Leeds Metropolitan Students Union website.
Both founded two years ago by graduates from Leeds University, each company has quickly established and developed an impressive reputation within the design industry. Combining their expertise, vision and experience in a joint enterprise, will provide Leeds Met SU with the optimum solution for presenting online information to the university’s large and diverse student body. Whilst bringing different expertise to the project – Magpie specialise in higher education marketing and Creode boasts an award winning design and business portfolio – both teams share a company ethos for providing a friendly, personal service. Both already list some mighty big names amongst their clients and are expanding to compete with the larger, more established fish within the industry.
The collaboration is a success story of the innovative NTI Leeds co-working environment, based at Old Broadcasting House. With experience both as recent students and as developing businesses, Creode and Magpie are excellently placed to provide a fresh, accessible site that appeals and relates to students in all areas of university life, from career advice and peer support to events listings and campus politics. A joint venture from two of the north’s most exciting and thriving young design companies will put the Leeds Met SU site at the forefront of online student services.
We’re looking forward to showing you the final product!
