Case study brief: Renovating Platform Magazine's website

Platform Magazine is Nottingham Trent Student Union’s official magazine. Providing student news from in-and-around Nottingham.

HeX was approached to redesign and develop the website.

Supporting students from HeX's hometown of Nottingham made this case study unique

Working alongside students and editors at the publication, we totally renovated the site’s look and feel to show the publication’s professionalism and ethos.

Showcasing work through web design

Our team went away and found a template that would showcase the work of student writers from departments, including news, fashion, beauty, culture, sport and more.

Website development impact and outcomes

Editors can now easily publish stories, place more of a focus to their featured images, and work with an integrated social media feed to publicise their stories.
