lumpy lemon was commissioned by oxford university’s department of politics to develop publicservices.ac.uk to present the findings of the 5-year ‘public services programme’. as well as the research papers and findings, there is a powerful search feature, sections for upcoming events and news stories, and an extensive library of publications. the website is powered by our content management system based on the open source wordpress platform, so the programme staff can easily maintain it.
for over two years we have supported this amazing woman and her incredible dream to row solo across the indian ocean. we provided web design (sarahouten.co.uk), portrait photography and publicity materials such as business cards and sponsorship packs. we hope to be on the beach to greet her when she arrives in mauritius at the end of her journey! the website is very active and dynamic to encourage visitors to return regularly: sarah constantly blogs, adds new photos to the gallery and keeps a record of her fundraising achievements.
this innovative chain of eco-shops commissioned lumpy lemon to design a range of promotional materials, including all the publicity for the launch of their new shops within garden centres. we also provided studio product photography for use on promotional materials, vouchers and website.
an oxford-based landscape design practise, we designed and developed topio’s website (topio.co.uk) that uses our powerful content management system. this allows it to be easily expanded and updated without the need for a webmaster. in addition to this, we worked on the business stationery and provided design and print consultancy services.
our brief for this job was to make a plumber’s website that looked nothing like all the other plumbers’ websites! so we came up with a clean, fresh, spacious design which you can see at aqueco.co.uk. every page has a ‘snippet’ of info to show visitors the importance of saving water and co2, and how this can save them money. lumpy lemon also designed the logo to be used on all the business materials.
oxtalk is a charity providing â€˜talking newspapers’ to blind and visually impaired people around oxford. when they approached us they were still using cassette tapes, but knew they would need to switch to digital media in the near future. we designed their new logo and built oxtalk.org.uk to the highest standards of accessibility – it was unanimously approved by their network members. we now apply this level of accessibility to all our sites as a matter of course. we recently added the functionality for the â€˜listen online’ feature, so members can now subscribe to the rss feed (podcast) for the latest edition, or listen to any edition from the archive.
beautiful, fairly-traded jewellery photographed for oxfam’s catalogues and advertisements. our studio shots were then also used in pre-christmas publicity, in-store displays and other promotional materials.
for oak tree press we provided photography and design for the “first chapter series” – beautiful limited collectors’ editions of signed hardback books. we designed and laid out the j.m. koetzee series, as well as designing a number of magazine advertisements.
