Somerville College University of Oxford

Design & Front-End Development

June 2011
Somerville College

Somerville was founded in 1879 to give women, at that time excluded from membership of the University, the chance to benefit from an Oxford education. The College, which has admitted men since 1994, fosters a pioneering spirit.

I created a new design for Oxford University's Somerville College to help it differentiate itself from other Oxford colleges. The challenge was to use their existing HTML, with only minor modifications, to create a distinctive design and strong message to form the foundation of the new site. The home page was the only exception, where I was free to craft new markup.
