Web Design Portfolio: Featured Projects

Examples of our web consultancy, design and development work. See our client list for details of the many different organisations we have worked with over the last decade.

Inevitably some of the work shown here is no longer online.

Isis Innovation Ltd (University of Oxford)


Cayenne has been working closely with Isis Innovation, the technology transfer company for the University of Oxford, since 1999. The continually evolving website contains extensive information on Isis' activities, including a searchable database of over 150 new inventions available for licensing from the University. Effective information architecture, a clean, fast-loading design, and robust site search facility ensure this wealth of information is readily accessible to a diverse audience.

Services provided: original website design based on existing branding; front-end development (XHTML+CSS); custom back-end administration tools; Adobe Contribute integration for in-house site updates; ongoing development, training and support.

CMIS: Democratic Management Software


CMIS is a leading democratic management solution for Local Government, acquired by Astech in late 2008. Cayenne worked closely with long-standing client Astech to develop a new website for the system, including helping to source new copy and branding. We completely redesigned the CMIS website with a fresh colour scheme, eye-catching icons and flexible page layouts based on a strong, grid-based design. The site was implemented using the ExpressionEngine CMS, putting Astech in control of day-to-day publishing and including an integrated blog and user forum.

Services provided: original website design; front-end development and production (XHTML+CSS); ExpressionEngine CMS implementation including blog and customer forum; liason with branding and copy-writing professionals; copy-editing; email newsletter design and templating.

Football Betting Data


Football Betting Data is one of a suite of three sports websites developed by Cayenne for specialist publisher Oxfordshire Press, which provide live results and team statistics for the English Premier League and Champions League football. We developed a custom web application to process a raw XML feed of live match data and convert this to a permanent MySQL database. The application automatically extracts individual match statistics for visitors in real-time as well as calculating season-wide data for each team to compare head-2-head.

Services provided: custom XML parser; custom PHP & MySQL application, database and backend development; AJAX real-time match results; branding and user interface design; front-end development (XHTML, CSS, Javascript).

Red-Gate Software

Red Gate needed an "ingeniously simple" website to promote their market-leading tools for Microsoft SQL and .NET developers, and a complete redesign which wouldn't damage their painstakingly crafted search engine listings. Working closely with Red Gate's in-house developers Cayenne created a clean, simple design and implemented it using web standards — semantic XHTML and CSS layout — to create a site which was both fully accessible and even more search engine friendly than before, including an accessible interface for Red-Gate's custom shopping cart.

Services provided: original website design based on existing branding; front-end template development (XHTML+CSS).

Oxfordshire Business Enterprises

This highly-regarded local enterprise agency, providing support and advice for start-up businesses in Oxfordshire, needed an approachable, professional, easy-to-use and search-engine friendly website. Working with a relatively limited budget, and working closely with OBE's marketing consultant and copy-writer, Cayenne developed a fresh, new design for this small but perfectly formed website. Integration with Adobe Contribute, with training and support from Cayenne, meant OBE were finally able to update their site in-house quickly and easily.

Services provided: original website design; front-end development and production (XHTML+CSS); Adobe Contribute integration for in-house site updates.
